A wealthy and important family of Shire-hobbits. We only know one member by name: Camellia Sackville, who married Longo Baggins (an uncle of Bilbo). We do know that Camellia was an important member of the family: her (unnamed) father was its head, and after his death the headship of the Sackvilles passed through Camellia to her son Otho. Following convention, Otho therefore joined the name of the Sackville family to his father's Baggins heritage, giving rise to the rather notorious family known as the Sackville-Bagginses.
