Homeland of Hobbits would be a better clue. I tried 'Smials' and 'Hobbit-hole' before I realised you wanted 'Shire'.

You tried 'Smials', even though there's no M, L and only one S in the grid? You tried 'Hobbit-hole', even though there are no Os or Bs, no T, L and only one H in the grid? That's impressively hopeful.

For the" split with others" clue and as a regular Jetpunker, I saw "hairs" and my mind wouldn't go any further.
