Proudfoot Family

Revision as of 21:05, 1 June 2006 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

A family of Hobbits of the Shire. All the members of this family mentioned in The Lord of the Rings were related to the Bagginses, since they were descended from Bilbo Baggins' uncle Bodo Proudfoot. There is some uncertainty about the plural form of 'Proudfoot' - the family themselves apparently used 'Proudfeet', but Bilbo pointedly preferred 'Proudfoots'.
