The Grubb Family was an important and wealthy family of the Shire-hobbits.

Female members of that family married into the Baggins and Boffin families. Laura Grubb married Mungo Baggins, and was Bilbo's grandmother.[1]

Some of the family were involved in auctioneering. The company Messrs Grubb, Grubb and Burrowes was set to sell Bilbo Baggins's belongings.[2]

Etymology[edit]

The name is meant to recall the English verb grub "dig, root, in the ground".[3]
