The Cottonsor Cottonses were a widespread family of Hobbit Farmers from the Shire.In Buckland a family of the same name was often nicknamed "Buckland-Cottons" to distinguish them from the Cottons of the Northfarthing and the Vale of the Water. Curiously it was also the name of a small clan of human Breelanders, for which some men and Hobbits joked that "those Cottons must have some Halfling blood or vice-versa", but Cotton derived from the old term Cottager, for a Farmer, and had always been a quite common soubriquet in late Arnor.
