Mrs. Maggot was the wife of the Farmer Maggot. Their home was the farm Bamfurlong and they had at least two sons and three daughters.

Mrs. Maggot served Frodo, Sam and Pippin when her husband hosted them. When the Farmer took the Hobbits to the Ferry, Mrs. Maggot sent with him a basket of mushrooms for Frodo, knowing how much he liked them.[1]
