The ancestral lands of the Shire-thains.
   A wide region of the Shire's Westfarthing that was the historical province of the Took clan, and so of the hereditary Thains of the Shire. The Tookland lay to the south of the East Road, with its chief and central township at Tuckborough in the Green Hills. There, burrowed into the hillsides, was the famous and historic home of the Tooks, Great Smials. Somewhat to the west of Tuckborough lay the smaller of the Tookland's main settlements, Tookbank.
