  12. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 18, "Attractive blonde Rita Skeeter, 43, whose savage quill has punctured many inflated reputations..."; Goblet of Fire takes place in 1994, which makes Rita's birth year 1951, unless, of course, she is lying about her age.
  13. Black family tree
  14. According to J.K. Rowling at the Edinburgh Book Festival (J.K. Rowling at the Edinburgh Book Festival (15 August, 2004) source), headmasters only get their portrait hung in the office if they die holding the title of headmaster. As Dippet's portrait was shown hanging in the office in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets film and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, this means that he must have died in office. As Dumbledore became headmaster in 1956 with Dippet as his predecessor, this would imply that Dippet died that year.
