Rorimac, Master of Buckland
Gorbadoc Brandybuck is the son of Marmadoc Brandybuck and Adaldrida Bolger, the uncle by marriage of Bilbo Baggins, the grandfather of Frodo Baggins, the great-grandfather of Meriadoc Brandybuck, and the great-granduncle by marriage of Peregrin Took:
'You see: Mr. Drogo [Baggins], he married poor Miss Primula Brandybuck.... And Mr. Drogo was staying at Brandy Hall with his father-in-law, old Master Gorbadoc, as he often did after his marriage (him being partial to his vittles, and old Gorbadoc keeping a mighty generous table); and he went out boating on the Brandywine River; and he and his wife were drownded....
'Anyway: there was this Mr. Frodo left an orphan and stranded..., among those queer Bucklanders, being brought up anyhow in Brandy Hall. A regular warren, by all accounts. Old Master Gorbadoc never had fewer than a couple of hundred relations in the place.'
