Age: 3rd Age - The Stewards

Years: 2980 ~ 2989


[Said] the Gaffer.... 'A decent respectable hobbit was Mr. Drogo Baggins; there was never much to tell of him, till... he and his wife were drownded, and poor Mr. Frodo only a child and all.'....

'Anyway: there was this Mr. Frodo left an orphan and stranded, as you might say, among those queer Bucklanders, being brought up anyhow in Brandy Hall. A regular warren, by all accounts. Old Master Gorbadoc never had fewer than a couple of hundred relations in the place. Mr. Bilbo never did a kinder deed than when he brought the lad back to live among decent folk.'

Lobelia's face looked as if she was in the throes of thinking out a really crushing parting remark...:

'... You don't belong here; you're no Baggins — you — you're a Brandybuck!'

'Did you hear that, Merry? That was an insult, if you like,' said Frodo as he shut the door on her.

'It was a compliment,' said Merry Brandybuck, 'and so, of course, not true.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 1, A Long-expected Party

The date of this event is set to lie between the events Drogo and Primula Baggins die boating on the Brandywine and Bilbo adopts Frodo as his heir.
