Hob Hayward was an old Hobbit who wore the feathered cap of the the Shirriffs of the Shire. In happier times, he had watched the Hay Gate, the gate at the northern entrance to Buckland at the end of the High Hay. It was from this duty that he took his name: a hayward is an old term for a guardian of hedges and fences.[1]
