Ferumbras Took I
Ferumbras Took I was a Hobbit of the Shire who held the position of Thain some time between S.R. 740 and S.R. 1083.
There are no direct records of Ferumbras I but he was evidently the namesake of Ferumbras II. Ferumbras I's reign as Thain came between the beginning of the Took line of Thains in S.R. 740 and the reign of Isengrim II, which began in S.R. 1083, after which there were no gaps in the Took family's genealogy.
Ferumbras is a name from the legends of Roland, a corruption of Frankish fier à bras, "brave arm".
