Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The seventh of the twelve children of Gerontius, the Old Took. Though he was far from inheriting the Thainship, Isembard founded a branch of the Took family that continued down at least to the time of the War of the Ring. Many of his descendants were present at Bilbo's Farewell Party, including his grandson Adelard, and Adelard's own five children.
