The broadest and heaviest of Hobbits
|Stoors|| Stoors of Eriador
Stoors of the Angle
|Hobbits of the late Third Age|
One of the three ancient hobbit-kinds, the broadest and heaviest in build. They were the last of three branches of the hobbits to cross the Misty Mountains into Eriador.
The Nature of the Stoors
The Stoors were broader, heavier in build; their feet and hands were larger, and they preferred flat lands and riversides. The Stoors lingered long by the banks of the Great River Anduin, and were less shy of Men. They came west after the Harfoots and followed the course of the Loud-water southwards; and there many of them long dwelt between Tharbad and the borders of Dunland before they moved north again.
