Chubb family

From Tolkien Gateway

The Chubb family was a family of Shire-hobbits, of whom several were present at Bilbo Baggins' Farewell Party.[1] Their main connection with the Baggins family was through Bilbo's grandfather, the Old Took, whose wife Adamanta Chubb was mother to no fewer than twelve children, including Bilbo's mother Belladonna.

Marriage into the Took and Baggins families, as well as the usage of exotic flower names and jewels, suggest that the Chubbs were of higher class.[2]
