Physical Description

Marmadoc "Masterful" Brandybuck was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Marmadoc was the son of Madoc Brandybuck and Hanna Goldworthy. He married Adaldrida Bolger and had two children, Gorbadoc and Orgulas.[1]


Marmadoc is an actual Celtic name, a variation of Marmaduke. It derives from Máel Máedóc, which means "disciple of Saint Máedóc".[2] It is possible this is a reference to his father Madoc.
