Presumed genealogy of Beregond (though note that all we know for certain is that Iorlas was the uncle of Bergil, and so he may have been the brother of Bergil's (unnamed) mother, rather than his father Beregond as shown here).
A soldier of Minas Tirith in Gondor, who befriended Peregrin Took during his time there, and was later appointed to the Guard of Faramir in Emyn Arnen.
Only one son of Beregond (that is, Bergil) is mentioned in The Lord of the Rings, but another makes an appearance in The New Shadow (in The History of Middle-earth volume 12). This represents the beginning of a sequel to The Lord of the Rings set more than a century after the end of that book (though it never progressed far). One of its characters is an old man named Borlas of Pen-arduin, who is described as 'the younger son of Beregond, the first Captain of the Guard of Prince Faramir', an unmistakable reference to the Beregond of The Lord of the Rings.
