A family of Hill Trolls from the western foothills of the Misty Mountains. William Huggins with his brothers Tom and Bert are to be found in The Hobbit where they had ventured down into the woods and green hills north of the Great East Road to indulge their taste for sheep and men. They set up camp in a cave where they slept during daylight hours and kept their looted goods. There they captured first Bilbo and then Thorin and Company.

On the point of developing a taste for dwarf (not to mention hobbit!) they were tricked by Gandalf into overstaying the dawn. With the first rays of sunlight they turned to stone, never to move again.
