Revision as of 14:47, 11 February 2006 by Earendilyon (Talk | contribs)

The son of Olo Proudfoot, and grandson of Odo, Sancho was distantly related to Bilbo Baggins: his great-grandmother Linda was one of Bilbo's aunts. At the time of Bilbo's Farewell Party, Sancho was just eleven years old. He was one of the many Hobbits that arrived at Bag End on the day after the Party, where he went searching for Bilbo's fabled gold. In one of Bag End's pantries, he found what he thought was an echo in one of the walls, and had actually started to excavate when Frodo discovered him and put a stop to his treasure-hunt.
