Gruffo Boffin

The son of Uffo Boffin

A grandson of Otto Boffin the Fat, Gruffo was the son of Uffo Boffin and Sapphira Brockhouse, and was born just ten years after Bilbo Baggins. Gruffo had one son of his own, Griffo, who married into the Baggins clan when he wed Frodo's cousin Daisy. Gruffo survived until the year III 2999 (1399 by the Shire-reckoning) when he died at the age of ninety-nine, and thus missed Bilbo's Farewell Party by just two years.
