|Notable for||Founding the Shire|
In T.A. 1601, Marcho and his the brother Blanco led a group of mostly Harfoot hobbits westwards from Bree. They crossed Baranduin and with the permission of King Argeleb II they settled in the royal hunting grounds of Arthedain and founded the Shire. Soon after (c. T.A. 1630), Stoors from Dunland came to this new land.
