Daddy lived here at no 2 Bagshot Row and was the Gaffer’s next door neighbour. Both were frequent occupants of the Ivy Bush in Hobbiton. Daddy or ‘Dad’ as The Gaffer called him, was none too well disposed to strangers, considering those who lived the wrong side of the Brandywine river as queer, even though this was Buckland and only forty miles away. Despite being named Daddy, it is possible he was a single Hobbit, a widower perhaps, either way living next door to the Gamgees and their six lively children, Daddy would have had no shortage of company, as well as the odd sack of potatoes.
