[edit] History

There was a family connection between the Burrowses and the Bagginses: Bilbo's distant cousin Peony Baggins was married to Milo Burrows, and together they had four children.[2]

The company Messrs Grubb, Grubb and Burrowes were responsible in auctioneering Bilbo's belongins.[3][note 1].

Several members were present at Bilbo Baggins's famous Farewell Party.[2]
