Bolger Family

 / Bolger
   An important family of the Shire.
   A Hobbit family of Fallohidish origin, associated with the village of Budgeford, on the Water in the Eastfarthing of the Shire. In common with the Brandybucks and the Tooks, the Bolgers had a penchant for heroic names, and so as well as Fredegar (the most important Bolger in Tolkien's work), we find such noble names as Fastolph, Gundabald and Odovacar.
