Folco Boffin (born S.R. 1378) was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Folco was the son of Vigo Boffin[1] and probably one of the guests at Bilbo's Farewell Party.[2]

He was a friend of Frodo Baggins,[3] and in September T.A. 3018 he stayed in Bag End assisting in Frodo's move to Buckland by packing and loading carts. He stayed to celebrate Frodo's birthday with Merry, Pippin and Fatty Bolger. The next day they loaded the last of the luggage leaving for Crickhollow, and after lunch he left for his home.[4]
