365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 275: Gorhendad Oldbuck

The founder of Buckland, Gorhendad Oldbuck came from a family prominent in the Shire. Originally living in the Marish, he crossed the Brandywine in TA 2340 and settled eastward on a strip of land between the river and the Old Forest, which he called Buckland. It was here that Gorhendad began the excavation of the Hill of Buckland (which he named Brandy Hall) and changed the family name to Brandybuck. His heirs were known as the Masters of Buckland.
