Physical Description

Posco Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Posco was the son of Polo Baggins and a cousin of Bilbo Baggins. He married Gilly Brownlock, and together they had several children: Ponto, Porto, Peony. While his family and descendants attended his cousin's Bilbo's Farewell Party in S.R. 1401, he did not.[1][note 1]


  1. In the Appendix C Posco is the only of his family who isn't marked as an attendee of Bilbo's Party, which might suggest that he had died before that. On the other hand the lack of marking can be a typographical slip: cf. for example his sister Prisca.
