The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

'[Fangorn] reminds me... of the old room in the Great Place of the Tooks away back in the Smials at Tuckborough: a huge place, where the furniture has never been moved or changed for generations. They say the Old Took lived in it year after year, while he and the room got older and shabbier together — and it has never changed since he died, a century ago.'

The Two Towers, LoTR Book 3, Ch 4, Treebeard

Bilbo was going to be eleventy-one, 111,... a very respectable age for a hobbit (the Old Took himself had only reached 130)....
