A regular and respectable Shire-hobbit, fond of good food, he often visited his generous father-in-law Gorbadoc Brandybuck in Brandy Hall, and seemed to adopt the curious customs of the Bucklanders, like boating. This was the cause of his irregular death, as during one of his visits to his in-laws in Buckland,[note 1] he drowned in a boating accident with his wife Primula. Frodo was still very young and he was taken under the custody of his uncle, Rorimac Brandybuck.
