There remained, of course, the ancient tradition concerning the high king at Fornost, or Norbury as they called it, away north of the Shire.
But it was an old tradition that away over there stood the Grey Havens, from which at times elven-ships set sail, never to return.
Only the Elves still preserve any records of that vanished time, and their traditions are concerned almost entirely with their own history, in which Men appear seldom and Hobbits are not mentioned at all.
At the end of the Third Age the part played by the Hobbits in the great events that led to the inclusion of the Shire in the Reunited Kingdom awakened among them a more widespread interest in their own history; and many of their traditions, up to that time still mainly oral, were collected and Written down.
There are no more uses of "tradition" in the book.
