The Marish was a fertile but boggy farmland region on the western banks of the River Brandywine, in the Eastfarthing of the Shire, and the edge of the world beyond. The Shire-folk in this region were more cautious than their fellow Hobbits who lived farther from the borders, and so they sought protection from the dangers beyond the River.
