Sam was the youngest son of Hamfast and Bell Gamgee and had many brothers and sisters. As a gardener by trade, Sam seemed an honest talker. However, his love of elves, talent for poetry, and belief that the world holds greater wonders than most hobbits realize set him apart from the start.

It was Sam who first introduced the theme of the Elves that sailed from Middle-earth, a subtle foreshadowing of Bilbo and Frodo's final voyage across the sea from the Gray Havens. He lived with his father, Hamfast Gamgee, commonly known as "The Gaffer", on Bagshot Row in the Shire, near Bag End. He had five siblings: Hamson, Halfred, Daisy, May and Marigold.

As "punishment" for overhearing Gandalf's conversation with Frodo about the dangers of the One Ring, Gandalf chose Sam to be Frodo's companion on his journey to Rivendell. Sam saved Frodo's life more than once during the quest to destroy the Ring and accompanied him to Mount Doom.

After leaving Bree, Sam became very close with the pony Bill. Upon arriving at the Doors of Durin, Bill had to be released as he was unable to pass through the Moria Mines. This caused Sam great grief. In Lothlórien, Sam received a gift from Lady Galadriel; a small box of soil from her garden and a mallorn seed.

After Shelob attacked and apparently killed Frodo, Sam took the ring to complete the quest alone. Because he held the ring for a time, he was considered one of the ring bearers, and during the time he owned it, the ring lured him with visions of a large garden all to itself.

Being humble, Sam never gave in to the Ring's treacherous visions and temptations, and reciprocated when he discovered Frodo alive in the Tower of Cirith Ungol. He and Bilbo were the only ones who ever volunteered the ring, and only Sam volunteered it.

Sam then rushed to follow Frodo, only to see Frodo give up the quest and claim the ring as his own and put it on his finger. Unknown to Sam, Gollum had followed his tracks and attacked him from behind.

In the moments when Sam was dazed, Gollum attacked Frodo and after a brief struggle took the ring by force by biting off Frodo's finger. Gollum began celebrating the ring's recovery, but slipped and fell into the fiery abyss to his death, destroying the ring.

After the Shire was cleansed, Sam married Rose Cotton. They had thirteen children: Elanor the Fair, Frodo, Rose, Merry, Pippin, Goldilocks, Hamfast, Daisy, Primrose, Bilbo, Ruby, Robin and Tolman.

After his wife died in Year 61 of the Fourth Age, Sam entrusted the Red Book to his daughter Elanor and left the Shire. It was a tradition passed down from Elanor that he went to the Gray Havens, and because he was also a Ring-bearer he was allowed to cross the sea to be reunited with Frodo in the Undying Lands.
