Old Gammidgy

The nickname that gave rise to Sam Gamgee’s family name

A nickname acquired by Hob Gammidge of Tighfield. Both Hob and his son, Hobson, followed a roping tradition, and Hobson gained a nickname of his own, based on the name Gammidgy; he became known as Roper Gamgee, the first use of the surname that would later be borne by Hobson's grandson Sam.
