Goodenough Family

A family of the Shire-hobbits

A little-known family of the Shire, of which only a single member is named in records: Ivy Goodenough, who married Buffo Boffin to become a matriarch of the Boffin clan. From this, we can be sure that the family was in existence in the twenty-eighth century of the Third Age (or the twelfth by the Shire-reckoning) but whether any Goodenoughs survived until the end of the Third Age is unknown.
