Will Whitfoot was the Mayor of Michel Delving (and therefore of the Shire) at the time of the War of the Ring. He was renowned as being the fattest hobbit in the Westfarthing, and was affectionately referred to as "Old Will" or "Old Flourdumpling", perhaps because he emerged from the Town Hole covered in chalk after its roof collapsed. He was one of the first to be placed in the Lockholes after protesting when Sharkey established Lotho Sackville-Baggins as puppet ruler of the Shire. Fortunately he survived the experience.
