The Shire-hobbits, also known as Shire-folk, were the Hobbits that lived in the Shire, as opposed to Bree-hobbits and Bucklanders.


Shire-hobbits were considered the most rustic and pastoral of their kind, even by other Hobbits (such as those of Bree or Buckland). The most important family among the Shire-hobbits were the Tooks of the Westfarthing, who had held the hereditary, and largely honorary, title of Thain from TA 2340.
