Gilly Brownlock

Wife to Posco Baggins

A Shire-hobbit who joined the Baggins family when she married Posco Baggins, son of Polo. Through their three children Ponto, Porto and Peony, Gilly and Posco gave rise to a populous branch of the family, though none of their descendants played an important part in the War of the Ring. Gilly's husband Posco seems not to have survived to see Bilbo's famous Birthday Party, but Gilly herself (who would have been roughly a hundred years old at the time) was among those who saw Bilbo disappear.
