Cotton was a Hobbit family of the Shire, founded sometime after TA 2820 (SR 1220) by Cottar. Several members at least of the Cotton family lived in the Shire's Westfarthing; notably in Hobbiton and Bywater. Rosie Cotton, who became the wife of Samwise Gamgee, was the family's most famous member. Other notable members included Tolman Cotton.[1]
