Born in 2883 of the Third Age, Lalia Clayhanger married Thain Fortinbras Took II in 2914. They had a son named Ferumbras III born in 2916. In 2980, Fortinbras Took II died and Lalia became head of the Took family. She was fat and arrogant and needy. She demanded to be pushed in a wheelchair. Ferumbras III became Thain, but never married because of his obnoxious mother. In 3002, Pearl Took was pushing Lalia's wheelchair and accidentally pushed Lalia out of her wheelchair near the Great Smials. Lalia died, and Ferumbras II finally became head of the Took family.
