This article is about the grandson of Samwise Gamgee. For the Rider of Rohan, see Harding of Rohan.

Harding of the Hill (born S.R. 1501) was the son of Holfast Gardner, and the great-grandson of master Samwise Gamgee. He, and the other Gardners of the Hill, lived in Bag End after Samwise left The Shire in S.R. 1482.


Old English hearding means "hard one, strong one".[1]
