'''Flambard Took''' was one of the thirteen recorded grandchildren of [[Gerontius]], the [[Old Took]]. Flambard's father was [[Isembard Took|Isembard]], one of Gerontius' younger sons, making Flambard a first cousin of [[Bilbo Baggins]]. Indeed, Flambard and Bilbo were close contemporaries, being born just three years apart. Though he lived for a hundred and two years, Flambard did not survive to see Bilbo's famous [[Birthday Party]], but many of his descendants (including [[Adelard Took|Adelard]], [[Reginard Took|Reginard]] and [[Everard Took]]) were present to see Bilbo vanish.
