That land lay near the sources of Anduin, between the furthest ranges of the Misty Mountains and the northernmost parts of Mirkwood. The Éothéod had moved to those regions in the days of King Eärnil II from lands in the vales of Anduin ... They loved best the plains ... but there were many men in the middle vales of Anduin in those days, and moreover the shadow of Dol Guldur was lengthening; when therefore they heard of the overthrow of the Witch-king, they sought more room in the North, and drove away the remnants of the people of Angmar on the east side of the Mountains.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: The House of Eorl

While the Éothéod still dwelt in their former home they were well-known to Gondor as a people of good trust, from whom they received news of all that passed in that region. ... It was thus of great concern to Gondor when the Éothéod removed into the far North, in the days of Eärnil II....
