"By the seventeenth century, any witch or wizard who chose to fraternize with Muggles became suspect, even an outcast in his or her own community."
Albus Dumbledore[src]

The following events occurred in the 17th century:

  • Quidditch is introduced to North America (causing anti-wizard sentiment) and New Zealand.[1]
  • The Wimbourne Wasps take their name from a nasty incident which occurred during a match against the Appleby Arrows in the mid-seventeenth century, when a Beater flying past a tree on the edge of the pitch noticed a wasps' nest among the branches and batted it towards the Arrows' Seeker, who was so badly stung that he had to retire from the game.[2]
