LindonLindon - After the destruction of Beleriand, the Elves had to find new homes.  Some migrated to Eriador, some to Mirkwood, and some to the shores of the Grey Havens.


"In Eriador Imladris was the chief dwelling of the High Elves; but at the Grey Havens of Lindon there abode also a remnant of the people of Gil-galad the Elvenking.  At times they would wander into the lands of Eriador, but for the most part they dwelt near the shores of the sea, building and tending the elven-ships wherein those of the Firstborn who grew weary of the world set sail into the uttermost West." ~The Silmarillion (Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age)
