Harry Potter's family
to Dumbledore, the Dursleys are Harry Potter's only living relatives
(PS1). We do know a little about the rest of the clan, but not much.
Here's the family tree:
Rowling's Black Family Tree mentions a Charlus Potter who was married
to Dorea Black (1920-1977), a grandchild of Phineas Nigellus Black.
They had one son (unnamed).
It is doubtful that Charlus is
Harry's grandfather because Jo has told us that "James's parents were
elderly, were getting on a little when he was born, which explains the
only child, very pampered,
had-him-late-in-life-so-he's-an-extra-treasure, as often happens, I
think. They were old in wizarding terms, and they died." Dorea was
only 57 when she died.
little information is given about this side of the family. Harry saw a
grandfather among the various relations in the Mirror of Erised, but we
haven't been given any more than that. It would seem that all the
Potter family were wizards, and that they're all dead (PS12). JKR has
told us that there was nothing sinister about the deaths of Harry's
Potter grandparents. Harry's grandfather Potter was in Gryffindor, like
his son and grandson (DH34).
Black ran away from home at the age of 16 and moved in with James'
family. He said that James' parents took him in as "a second son"
(OP6), which strongly suggests that James was their only son.
Evans had a sister named Petunia Evans. Lily was a Muggle-born witch.
Petunia grew up resenting her sister and the way their parents seemed
to approve of Lily's magical ability. Petunia is married to Vernon
Harry's parents and guardians
James and Lily Potter
Dursley is completely Muggle. He has no use for anything having to do
with magic, thank you very much. As far as we're told, his family
consists of himself, his wife Petunia, their spoiled son Dudley, and
his sister, Marjorie (Aunt Marge).
The Dursleys' view of the Potters
isn't clear what their source is, but the Dursleys seem to be under the
impression that James Potter did not work. Vernon calls him a
"good-for-nothing" (PS1) and Marge viciously calls them drunks and
layabouts and says that they got what they deserved. Rowling has told
us that James Potter was so wealthy that he did not need a well-paying
job so Vernon's and Marge's assertions are at best misleading and at
Harry's own family
Harry married his sweetheart Ginny Weasley and had three children:
- James Sirius (b. circa 2005; Gryffindor, 2016?)
oldest son of Harry and Ginny Potter, named for Harry’s father. He
seems to have inherited a bit of Weasley – interrupting his cousins
while snogging (DH/e) – as well as a bit of his namesake, stealing the
Marauder’s Map from his father’s desk (BLC).
- Albus Severus (b. 2006; Hogwarts, 2017)
child of Harry and Ginny Potter, named for Albus Dumbledore and Severus
Snape. When he begins Hogwarts he’s quite nervous about being sorted
into Slytherin, thanks in large part to the goading of his older
brother James; Harry reassures him that the Sorting Hat will take his
choice into account if he wants it to (DH/e).
- Lily Luna (b. 2008; Hogwarts, 2019)
child and only daughter of Harry and Ginny Potter, named for Harry’s
mother, Lily. Like her mother twenty-eight years earlier, Lily was
jealous as she stood on Platform 9 ¾, watching her older brothers go
off to Hogwarts (DH/e).
