Herbologist

Beaumont Marjoribanks (17421845) was a pioneer in Herbology, having collected and classified many magical plants.

For this he was featured on a Chocolate Frog Card. He is credited with discovering the effects of Gillyweed, despite Elladora Ketteridge stumbling upon them about a hundred years prior. [1]

There was a bust of Marjoribanks on the History of Magic classroom, next to Cuthbert Binns's desk. [2]

EtymologyEdit

The name "Beaumont" comes from a French surname meaning "beautiful mountain".

Behind the scenesEdit

  • There appear to be inconsistencies in the spelling of this individual's surname: in the video games, it appears to be spelt "Majorbanks". In the real-life Chocolate Frog Cards once released in the United States (which were penned by J. K. Rowling), it is spelt "Marjoribanks".
