Bamfurlong in The Lord of the Rings Online

Bamfurlong, the name for Maggot's Farm, was the farmland of Farmer Maggot located in the Marish, in the Eastfarthing of the Shire.

HistoryEdit

Bamfurlong was boggy in nature and made for above ground habitation rather than the traditional Hobbit-hole. It also made excellent ground for growing mushrooms. Bamfurlong included a huge turnip field and a lane that led to a large, thatched house and outbuildings. The house and buildings were built of brick and were protected by a high wall with a wooden gate.[1][2]

EtymologyEdit

Tolkien himself suggested the name Bamfurlong comes from Old English meaning something akin to 'bean-field'.[citation needed]
