Erling

A son of Holman the greenhanded

One of the five children of Holman the greenhanded of Hobbiton, Erling belonged to the earlier generations of Samwise Gamgee's family, though he was not a direct ancestor of Sam himself. Instead, Erling's elder sister Rowan married Hob Gammidge of Tighfield, who was to become Sam's great-grandfather.
