Rorimac Brandybuck, also called Goldfather and Old Rory, was a Hobbit of the Shire and the sixth Master of Buckland.

HistoryEdit

He was married to Menegilda Goold and had two children with her: Saradoc "Scattergold" and Merimac. He was a brother of Primula (Brandybuck) Baggins, mother of Frodo, and was the grandfather of Meriadoc Brandybuck . He lived from 1302-1408 Shire Reckoning.[1]

At the birthday party of Bilbo Baggins, he was the only one to realize that "mad Baggins is off again." However, as Bilbo hadn't taken the food or wine with him, Rory wasn't concerned. After the party, Rory received a dozen bottles of Old Winyards, as a thanks for much hospitality. He voted Bilbo a capital fellow after the first bottle.[2]
