List of female hobbits

Hobbits are a fictional race in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth books. They first appear in The Hobbit and play an important role in the book The Lord of the Rings.

This is a list of female hobbits that are mentioned by name in Tolkien's works. In most cases they are grouped by family (either born or married into). Then order as listed is by date of birth, or estimated date of birth if not known.

Note that the years are given in years of the Third Age (unless otherwise noted), and not according to the Shire reckoning.

Interestingly, one line from The Hobbit includes the insinuation (or at least Bilbo's assumption) Gandalf is "responsible for so many hobbit lads and lasses" going on adventures.

Samwise Gamgee's family

  • Rose "Rosie" Cotton (2984–61 F.A.). Daughter of Tolman Cotton and Lily Brown and sister of Tolman (Tom), Wilcome (Jolly), Bowman (Nick), and Carl (Nibs). Rosie was a long-time friend of Samwise Gamgee, and they were married in 3020 when Sam returned home after the War of the Ring. Sam and Rosie had thirteen children (Elanor, Frodo, Rose, Merry, Pippin, Goldilocks, Hamfast, Daisy, Primrose, Bilbo, Ruby, Robin, Tolman (Tom)). Many were named after Sam and Rosie's friends and relatives. Among them were Elanor the Fair, Frodo Gardner (F.A. 2—), and Goldilocks. Rosie died in the year 61 of the Fourth Age. Sam then left Middle-earth for the Undying Lands later that year. 'Cotton' in Hobbitish is 'Hlothran'. In the film trilogy Rosie lives at 10 Bagshot row and is played by Sarah McLeod.
"I think the simple 'rustic' love of Sam and his Rosie (nowhere elaborated) is absolutely essential to the study of his (the chief hero's) character, and to the theme of the relation of ordinary life (breathing, eating, working, begetting) and quests, sacrifice, causes, and the 'longing for Elves', and sheer beauty." - J.R.R Tolkien letter dated 1951.
  • Goldilocks (10 F.A.—?) was the 3rd daughter of Master Samwise Gamgee and his wife Rose Cotton. In FA 42, she married Faramir Took, son of Peregrin Took, Thain of the Shire, joining the Took & Gardner lines. Faramir became Thain in F.A. 63, when his father left for Gondor.
