A common form of the title Mayor of Michel Delving; a position of considerable influence among the Hobbits of the Shire.
For a detailed list of the few known Mayors, see the entry for Mayor of Michel Delving.
The earliest definite date we can put on the Mayoralty of the Shire is III 3013, the latest Free Fair at which Will Whitfoot could have been elected to the position. It seems clear in context that the office of Mayor must have gone much further back into history, perhaps even to the founding of the Shire itself in III 1601, but we lack any definite historical confirmation of its antiquity.
