Tully Hawkswell was a Hobbit-Farmer of the Shire. He was a member of the Hawkswells that were one of the few families to hire tall-folk as field hands. Before the War of the Ring ever occurred, Tully ended the practice of recruiting from the same few families of the Sarn Settlements and brought in strangers from the lands along the Greyflood. Few suspected that he had joined Lotho Sackville-Baggins’ conspiracy to take over the Shire, but his hands acted as guides for the ruffians who controlled the Southfarthing. After the uprising of 3019, he and his clan were driven from the Shire and their lands divided up among those impoverished by Sharkey's depredations.
