The Sackville Family was a hobbit family of the Shire.

Camellia Sackville is the only known member of the family; apart from her almost nothing is known about them, except that they are described as being one of the Shire's wealthier families.

Etymology

The name Sackville is intended to be of more aristocratic association than Baggins. Tolkien noted that it was intentional that "bag" and "sack" have similar meaning.[1]

Sackville is a real-life English surname
