FOTR - "Prologue", 1. Concerning Hobbits"
Before the crossing of the mountains the Hobbits had already become divided into three somewhat different breeds, or "races": Harfoots, Stoors, and Fallohides.
- 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 Loudwater southwards; and there many of them long dwelt between Tharbad and the borders of Dunland before they moved north again.
