Holman "Long Hom" Cotton was a Hobbit of Bywater.

History

Holman moved to Bywater, and took up the family name "Cotton". He became a farmer, which passed to his son, Tom. He also had another son, Will.[1]

Etymology

Holman means "hole-man", and is distinct from the real-life English surname[2] which contains holm "river island" rather than hol "hole".[3]
