Old Noakes was a Hobbit of the Shire and a resident of Bywater, "Old Noakes" is a regular at the Ivy Bush inn in Hobbiton.

BiographyEdit

In TA 3001, just before Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party, Old Noakes was gossiping with the "Old Gaffer", Daddy Twofoot, and Sandyman the miller at the Ivy Bush tavern. He believed that Drogo Baggins (the father of Frodo) sank he and his wife Primula Brandybuck's boat because of his weight. Sandyman thought it was because Primula pushed him off. The Old Gaffer laughed at both of these claims dismissing them as rumors.[1]

EtymologyEdit

"Old" suggests the age of this Hobbit is not young. "Noaks" is probably from the early English phrase "atten oek". This means "At the Oak". Thus fully roughly meaning "old oak".[Source?]
