Tobold "Old Toby" Hornblower was a famous Hobbit.
Toby came from Longbottom in the Southfarthing of the Shire. He was the first to cultivate pipe-weed in the Shire, and was quite famous for it. How he came by the weed is unknown, though Merry Brandybuck speculated that he had traveled to Bree in his youth and came into contact with the herbs there.
