Holman Greenhand was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Holman married and had five children to an unnamed wife named Rowan, Halfred, Erling, Hending, and Rose. He was the former gardener at Bag End, and a cousin of the father of Hamfast Gamgee, whom he took as an apprentice. Hamfast became the gardener himself after some time, and his son Samwise Gamgee replaced him in turn.[1]
