Sackville Family

From Tolkien Gateway

The Sackville Family was a hobbit family of the Shire.

Camellia Sackville is the only known member of the family;[1] apart from her almost nothing is known about them, except that they are described as being one of the Shire's wealthier families.

For more of them see Sackville-Baggins Family


The name Sackville is intended to be of more aristocratic association than Baggins. Tolkien noted that it was intentional that "bag" and "sack" have similar meaning.[2]

Sackville is a real-life English surname.[2]

Portrayal in adaptations
