Milo Burrows was a hobbit of the Shire.

History

Milo was a grandson of Gorbadoc Brandybuck of Buckland, who married into the Baggins Family when he wedded Peony, a distant cousin of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. They had four children - Mosco, Moro, Myrtle and Minto - and most of the family was present at Bilbo's famous Bilbo's Farewell Party (apart from Minto, who was only five years old at that time).[1]

Milo was known for his habit of failing to reply to letters, and because of this he was one of those that found a specially selected gift waiting for him in Bag End, after Bilbo's departure: a golden inkpot and pen.[2]
