Ponto Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Ponto was the eldest son of Posco Baggins and Gilly Brownlock and was named after his great-parent, Ponto. He was the father of Angelica and they attended the Birthday Party together.[1]

After Frodo Baggins left the Shire in S.R. 1422, Ponto became the head of the Baggins Family, though in title only, as Bag End had passed to Samwise Gamgee.[2]

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

2002: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (video game):

Ponto lives on Number 2, Bywater Road, the first house in Bywater.
