365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 240: Rosie Cotton

Rose Cotton (often called Rosie) was the only daughter of Farmer Tolman ‘Tom’ Cotton and Lily Brown of Bywater, born in TA 2984; she had four brothers: Tom, Jolly, Nick and Nibs.

In 3020, she wed her longtime friend Samwise Gamgee, and throughout the course of their marriage bore him thirteen children (Elanor, Frodo, Rose, Merry, Pippin, Goldilocks, Hamfast, Daisy, Primrose, Bilbo, Ruby, Robin, and Tolman). In FO 62, after leading a long and happy life, she died; and just a few weeks later, Samwise left the Shire and sailed West over Sea.
