The Proudfoot Family was a family of Hobbits of the Shire.


All recorded members of the family:[1]

Bodo Proudfoot
Linda Baggins
S.R. 1262 - S.R. 1363
Odo Proudfoot
S.R. 1304 - S.R. 1405
Olo Proudfoot
S.R. 1346 - S.R. 1435
Sancho Proudfoot
S.R. 1390


There is some uncertainty about the plural form of "Proudfoot" - the family themselves apparently used "Proudfeet", but Bilbo pointedly preferred "Proudfoots".[2] Proudfoot is a real-life English surname.[3]
