Description:

Donnamira Boffin was born as Donnamira Took, the middle of the three daughters of Gerontius Took and Adamanta Chubb; she is the aunt of Bilbo Baggins, the grandaunt of Frodo Baggins, the great-grandaunt of Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took, and the great-grandmother of Fredegar and Estella Bolger:
[The] mother of... Bilbo Baggins... was the fabulous Belladonna Took, one of the three remarkable daughters of the Old Took, head of the hobbits who lived [in Tookland].... It was often said (in other families) that long ago one of the Took ancestors must have taken a fairy wife. That was... absurd, but certainly there was still something not entirely hobbit-like about them, — and once in a while members of the Took-clan would go and have adventures. They discreetly disappeared, and the family hushed it up; but the fact remained that the Tooks were not as respectable as the Bagginses, though they were undoubtedly richer.
