Goodbody Family

Revision as of 09:32, 9 February 2006 by Earendilyon (Talk | contribs)

One of the many prominent families that lived in the Shire. The Goodbodies were connected with the Baggins Family through Bilbo's great aunt Lily, who married one Togo Goodbody. Among the family trees in Appendix C to The Lord of the Rings, their descendants are summed up in just two words: 'Various Goodbodies'. Bilbo acknowledged the connection at his famous Birthday Party: we know that at least some of the various Goodbodies were present at that feast.
