(continued)

28- Isumbras IV (Thain for 9 years to III 2939): Like his brother Isengrim, Isumbras came old to the Thainship, being ninety-two when he took office. After his short time as the Shire-thain, he was succeeded by his son.
29- Fortinbras II (Thain for 41 years to III 2980): Early in his time as Thain there was a sensation in Hobbiton, due to the mysterious disappearance into the Wild - and later reappearance - of one Bilbo Baggins of Bag End. Fortinbras was succeeded by his son.
30- Ferumbras III (Thain for 35 years to III 3015): He was Thain at the time of Bilbo Baggins' famous farewell feast and Birthday Party, which indeed he attended. He never married, and so left no heir. The descent of the Thainship passed to the line of Gerontius' fourth son Hildigrim, and specifically to Hildigrim's grandson.
31- Paladin II (Thain for 19 years to IV 13): Born in the time that his great uncle Isumbras IV was Thain, Paladin took up a farming life at Whitwell in the Tookland. He was Thain during the War of the Ring, and held the Tookland against the ruffians who invaded the Shire at that time. He was succeeded by his fourth child, but eldest son.
32- Peregrin I (Thain for 50 years to IV 63): Peregrin Took of the Fellowship of the Ring inherited the Thainship some thirteen years after his return from adventuring in the south, and held the title into his old age. At the age of ninety-four, he gave up the office and rode away once again into the countries of the south with his friend Meriadoc Brandybuck; they were never seen in the Shire again. He was succeeded by his son.
33- Faramir I (Thain from IV 63): Named for Faramir the Prince of Ithilien, little is known of Thain Faramir, except that he married Sam Gamgee'sdaughter Goldilocks. Doubtless he was succeeded by further generations of Shire-thains, but of them we have no record.
