The founder of
Buckland and of the Brandybuck family (when he crossed the River Brandywine from the Shire, he changed his name from Oldbuck).
'Great-grandfather' seems a strange given name, and given that this
Hobbit became the ancestor of a great family, it seems more than likely that he was given the name Gorhendad by later generations of Brandybucks to honour has place as the founder of their clan.
