Rufus Burrows

The father of Milo Burrows

A member of the Burrows family of the Shire-hobbits, who formed a link between the larger and more famous Brandybuck and Baggins clans. Rufus himself married into the Brandybucks when he wedded Asphodel, the fifth of Master Gorbadoc's seven children. Their son was Milo Burrows, who is mentioned briefly in The Lord of the Rings for the unreliability of his letter-writing, and he in turn married into the Bagginses when he made Peony Baggins his bride.
