The Westmarch, the land between the Tower Hills and the Far Downs, was added to the Shire some years after the War of the Ring. Fastred of Greenholm was appointed as Warden by Thain Peregrin in IV 41, ten years after the Westmarch was founded. The title was hereditary, passed by Fastred to his son Elfstan Fairbairn, and associated from then on with the Fairbairns of the Towers.
