Sancho Proudfoot (b. Third Age 2990[1]) was a Hobbit of the Shire.


At the age of eleven, Sancho was present at the Farewell Party of his uncle Bilbo, along with his father Olo and grandfather Odo.[1] The day after, on September 23, T.A. 3001, he went to Bag End to seek for a treasure he heard rumours about. Frodo could just stop him, but not after Sancho had already started excavating the pantry, where he thought he heard an echo.[2]

Portrayal in Adaptations

2002: Vivendi's The Fellowship of the Ring:

A young Hobbit named Sancho Proudfoot - or, the "dread highwayman Sancho Proudfoot ", as he prefers to call himself - causes quite some mischief in Hobbiton and Bywater. Several of the early missions the player - as Frodo - has to do involve solving problems caused by Sancho, such as retrieving a metal pin of the Hobbiton Mill and Old Noakes' medicinal herbs.[3]
It should also be noted that Sancho still appears to be a young child, even though the level occurs in the year T.A. 3018. This means that he should be about twenty-eight years old by this point in the timeline.
