Porto Baggins

Posco Baggins’ second son

The second child of Posco Baggins and Gilly Brownlock. He was only very distantly related to Bilbo or Frodo Baggins (the most recent ancestor he shared with either of them was his great-great-grandfather Balbo Baggins). Nevertheless, he was among the 'One Gross' invited to the famous Birthday Party at which Bilbo left the Shire. He was born in the middle of the fourteenth century, according to the Shire Calendar, which would have made him fifty-three at the time of the Party.
