Daisy Gamgee

One of Sam’s elder sisters

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The third child and eldest daughter of Hamfast Gamgee and Bell Goodchild, Daisy Gamgee was born in the year III 2972 (or 1372 by the Shire-reckoning). Eight years later her younger brother was born: Sam Gamgee, later to accompany the Fellowship of the Ring.

Daisy would have been brought up with her large family at number 3 Bagshot Row beneath Hobbiton Hill, but of her later life we have no records. Daisy is not mentioned at the time of Bilbo's Farewell Party, so by this point - when she would have been twenty-nine years old - she had presumably left Bagshot Row to make a life elsewhere in the Shire. Though the details of Daisy's life are unclear, she does seem to have been an important part of the young Sam Gamgee's life; he would later name his eighth child (and fourth daughter) Daisy, presumably after his elder sister.
