Bagginses – one of the largest, most influential Hobbit Clans. At the time of Quest, Bilbo is indeed head of the family at the moment and the other relations are canon as well, his position strengthened by him being one of Gerontius “The Old” Took’s grandsons and a cousin of the current Thain. Camellia’s siblings and the part about the three years the position as head of a family can be held by the Thain, however, are entirely made up. I figured it would be a reasonable timeframe.

What actually happened is that Bandobras was terrified and tried to flee Massacre of Greenfields, as the Hobbits call it. He got turned around and instead charged right at the Orcs. The surviving Hobbits had seen too many horrors to hold it against Bandobras and couldn’t make themselves tell Bandobras’ husband and his many nieces and nephews the truth straight away.

“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay.” Gandalf claims in the quote above from The Hobbit that great power isn’t always necessary to accomplish great feats. If ordinary people can work as a team, the outcome can defeat an individual with great power.
