from S.R. 740 (Master)
Gorhendad Oldbuck of the Marish crossed the Brandywine in S.R. 740 and founded Buckland and Brandy Hall. In honor of their new land, he changed his family name from Oldbuck (H. Zaragamba) to Brandybuck (H. Brandagamba). He ruled the land, as Master of Buckland, as his own realm, and his family became even wealthier than they already were. Their removal from the Shire meant Thainship passed to the Took Family. Gorhendad himself was the ancestor of the Masters of Buckland.
Gorhendad is the translation of Westron Ogmandab (in an earlier manuscript version spelled Ogforgad) which, according to Stoor tradition, used to mean "great-grandfather". Gorhendad is the modern Welsh word for "great-grandfather".
