The '''Sandyman Family''' was a family of [[Hobbits]] that operated the [[Old Mill]] on [[The Water]] at [[Hobbiton]] for at least two generations. The origins of the name are uncertain, but the family's association with milling suggests a connection with the 'sanding' of flourdust they would have received in their work. Neither of the recorded Sandymans were well-liked in Hobbiton, but the younger, [[Ted Sandyman]], went so far as to fall in with [[Lotho Sackville-Baggins]] during the [[War of the Ring]]. He sold the Mill to Lotho (known at that time simply as "The Boss"), who knocked it down and replaced it with an ugly brick building.
