Magor (born F.A. 341) was Malach's son, and father of Hathol. He served no Elf-lord.[1]

He led a part of his father's people away from Hithlum and southward down the River Sirion. They settled among the southern foothills of the Ered Wethrin, that formed the southern wall of Hithlum.

Magor's grandson Hador and his people returned over the mountains and entered the service of Fingolfin, made Lord of Dor-lómin. From Magor's famous grandson his people took their name—the House of Hador.[2]
