Hildigrim Took

   Ancestor of both Peregrin Took and Meriadoc Brandybuck.
   The fourth child of Gerontius, the Old Took, who married Rosa Baggins and was thus very distantly related to both Bilbo and Frodo. Among his great-grandchildren were both Peregrin Took (the son of Hildigrim's grandson Paladin) and Meriadoc Brandybuck (the son of his granddaughter Esmeralda). Hildigrim never became Thain himself, but the Thainship did eventually pass to his descendants, so that Paladin II and his line held that distinction.
