Behind the scenes
Notes and references
- ↑ Bill Weasley is the oldest Weasley child and was born 1970.(Pottermore - Bill Weasley & HPL Lexicon - The Age of the Weasleys). Molly says that the Whomping Willow (planted 1971) was after her time at Hogwarts (GOF, Ch. 31) and that Molly and Arthur eloped soon after graduation. (HBP - Ch. 5). In order for Bill to be conceived in wedlock, Molly must have graduated by June 1969. Given her October birthday, this graduation date requires she started Hogwarts in 1962 and was born 1950. However, as Arthur Weasley was born 1950 ( Pottermore) he would have graduated June 1968, so if he and Molly were in the same year, she would have been born in 1949
