Westfarthing was the western farthing of the Shire, in which lay many of its important towns: Michel Delving on the White Downs; Tuckborough, the seat of the Took Thains of the Shire; and Hobbiton, home of the Baggins Family.

The Hobbitish dialect of the Westfarthing had retained the deferential pronoun of the proper Westron in scattered parts, since it was the only place of the Shire with chance to find meet someone of "government" or "noble class". It was used more as a light-hearted term of endearment.
