Adamanta Chubb

The wife of Gerontius Took

The wife of Gerontius, the famous Old Took, Adamanta was the mother of twelve children over a period of no less than thirty years. Those twelve children gave rise to many branches of the Took family, and Bilbo, Frodo, Merry and Pippin could all trace their ancestry back to Adamanta through different lines. Two of her sons would become Thain of the Shire: Isengrim, the eldest, and Isumbras. Two others left the Shire on mysterious adventures: these were Hildifons and Isengar (Isengar was the youngest of Adamanta's twelve children).
