Notes and references
- ↑ "JKRowling.com Archives: Birthdays" from Mugglenet
- ↑ In Chamber of Secrets, the date of that particular school year is firmly established as being 1992-1993. It is also said that Hagrid was expelled 50 years prior to this (1943), during his third year at Hogwarts. A third year student is 13-14 years old. Along with Jo's confirmation Hagrid was born on December 6, Hagrid's year of birth can only be 1928. He would have turned eleven on December 6 1939 and therefore have started Hogwarts the following September, 1940.
