Okay, something I was confused about when doing a tad of research....did the Gamgees change their name to "Gardener", or was that just his son Frodo, or....what?

I think it was Sam's son Frodo, but I'm not sure, I've never been clear on that myself.

Hope someone knows for sure. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

Have you checked The Encyclopedia of Arda? They have the best info on the geneologies.

From what I have seen, Frodo Gardner, is the only one of Sam's children that seems to have a name change. Though it states in Appendix C of RotK that
Quote:
In addition some geneaolgical information is provided concerning Samwise the founder of the family of Gardner, later famous and influential.

Well, I know Ealanor and Faramir Took became the Fairbairns. I'm not sure about the founding of the Gardener family...wait, hang on!

In RotK, "Scouring of the Shire", something is mentioned about folk starting to call Sam himself "the Gardener" and I believe it goes on to say that that became the family name, but I'd have to look and I'm too lazy to that just now.

Thank you, Joy. Hm. From the sound of this I guess I'll just stick with Gamgee, as far as Sam, Rose, etc. go.
Seems a sort of confusing subject--sorry about that. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Well, the family trees only specify the marriages of two(three?) of Sam's children. They may adopt the name "Gardener" later on, but I'm guessing that your character, if she's one of Sam's children, would stay a Gamgee until she got married. (I hope I'm not spilling too many beans by revealing that, Samwise.)

Not to worry, Rosa, I'm not going to complain about spoilers. Besides, my favorite thing to do (since Jr. High when I first read the books) was to go over the family trees--no kidding, I once had all 13 of Sam's kids' names memorized. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] (No, I didn't really have a life. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
And, no, this character does not get married according to the 'tree. (of course, the way I am making her out to be....never mind. ) [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
