The Dúnedain:

The Men of the West, those descended from the survivors of the destruction of Númenor. The Dúnedain of the south founded the kingdom of Gondor, while those of the north founded Arnor. The surviving Dúnedain of the North Line after the death of its last King became the Rangers, who protected places like the Bree-land and The Shire.
