'''Reginard Took''' was one of the many descendants of the [[Gerontius Took|Old Took]], Reginard was old [[Gerontius Took|Gerontius]]' great-great-grandson (though his line of descent was far from that leading to the [[Thain|Thainship]]). He was the elder brother of [[Everard Took]], and like Everard, he was present at [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo's]] [[Farewell Party]], though unlike his brother he was not mentioned directly in the history of that event. Reginard was a near contemporary of [[Frodo Baggins]], born just one year after Bilbo's adopted heir.
