'''Gilly Brownlock''' was a Shire-hobbit who joined the [[Baggins Family|Baggins]] family when she married [[Posco Baggins]], son of [[Polo Baggins Family|Polo]]. Through their three children [[Ponto II Baggins Family|Ponto]], [[Porto Baggins Family|Porto]] and [[Peony Baggins Family|Peony]], Gilly and [[Posco Baggins Family|Posco]] gave rise to a populous branch of the family, though none of their descendants played an important part in the [[War of the Ring]]. Gilly's husband Posco seems not to have survived to see Bilbo's famous [[Birthday Party]], but Gilly herself (who would have been roughly a hundred years old at the time) was among those who saw [[Bilbo Baggins]] disappear.
