Andwise 'Andy' Roper

 / Andwise / Andy
   Sam's rope-making uncle.
   -----
   The son of Hobson, the Hobbit known as Roper Gamgee, and the eldest brother of Hamfast Gamgee, the Gaffer. Andwise carried on his family's Tighfield rope-making tradition, a tradition that went back at least three generations to his grandfather Hob Gammidge.
   It was Andwise's younger brother Hamfast who broke the roping tradition, and travelled instead to Hobbiton, where his distant cousin Holman Greenhand was a gardener. Thus, Andwise's brother Hamfast laid the foundations for the famous Gardner family. Of Andwise's own descendants, though, we know almost nothing, except that he had one son, named Anson.
