Merimas Brandybuck

The eldest of Marmadas Brandybuck’s children

The eldest of the three children of Marmadas Brandybuck. Merimas belonged to the same generation as Meriadoc (and was in fact just one year older than Merry). However, the two were only distantly related, as the line of Merimas' ancestors had split from the line of the Masters of Buckland after the time of Marmadoc the Masterful, four generations earlier. Merimas was among the many Hobbits who attended Bilbo's Farewell Party, alongside his sisters Mentha and Melilot.
