Bag End

"In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled
with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with
nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a Hobbit-hole, and that means
comfort."
The Hobbit, "An Unexpected Party"
Bag End was a smial (Hobbit-hole) situated at the end of Bagshot Row in Hobbiton.
It was the home of Bilbo Baggins, afterwards of Frodo Baggins, and later of Samwise
Gamgee and his wife Rosie Cotton.

HistoryEdit
Bag End

Bilbo Baggins inherited the home from his parents, Bungo and Belladonna (Took)
Baggins. It was Bungo who built the smial for Belladonna in TA 2889. The hobbit
hole is noted to have a green door with a round brass knob, all but countless rooms
with round windows, and a garden. Although hobbits are known to be of small
stature, larger visitors are often seen, indicating that the ceilings are certainly
taller than expected. The grounds and home were kept by the Gamgee family, most
notably Hamfast ("The Gaffer") and later his son, Samwise.

Inside Bag End

The beautiful hole was a point of contention between Bilbo and his relatives the
Sackville-Bagginses, who very much desired to own it. Here, Bilbo lived a quiet
existence until the wizard Gandalf appeared with 13 Dwarves at the beginning of The
Hobbit and Bilbo went off on his adventure. Upon his return he discovered the
contents of the smial being auctioned off, since he had gone missing and was
assumed to have died. The Sackville-Bagginses were disappointed at his return and
their loss of Bag End.

By the beginning of The Lord of the Rings, Bilbo adopted his cousin (and nephew)
Frodo as his heir. Frodo became the Master of Bag End on their mutual birthday,
when Frodo turned 33 and Bilbo turned 111 years old. Bilbo left to live with the
elves at Rivendell. Frodo remained content at Bag End until Gandalf returned and
confirmed that Bilbo's ring was actually the One Ring. Preparations for departure
ensued, with Frodo selling Bag End to the Sackville-Bagginses and moving to
Crickhollow before departing on the Quest of the Ring.

Upon their return, during the Scouring of the Shire, Frodo and company discovered
that Lotho Sackville-Baggins had made Bag End his power base as he became Chief of
the Shire. He succeeded only too well and lost control of the entire enterprise;
after Saruman arrived, Grma Wormtongue killed Lotho in his sleep. Frodo and his
companions would later see Saruman killed on his front porch, thus ending the
Battle of Bywater. Afterwards, Lobelia Sackville-Baggins ceded Bag End back to
Frodo.

Frodo then resumed living in Bag End and was joined by Sam, upon his marriage to
Rosie. However, with wounds too deep to heal, in TA 3021 Frodo named Sam his heir
and left to cross the sea into the Uttermost West. Bag End remained in the Gamgee
family (later known as the Gardners) for at least three generations afterward.

The name Bag End name came from the real-life farmhouse in the tiny Worcestershire
village of Dormston, in which Tolkien's aunt lived. It can also be seen as a pun on
"cul-de-sac" (literally, "bottom of the bag"). In the books, it is supposedly a
translation of the Westron Labin-nec, which has much the same meaning, and bears
the same relationship to the Westron form of Baggins: Labingi.[1][2]
