Carrow is the surname of a pure-blood[1] wizarding family. Alecto once viciously slashed the face of Neville Longbottom when he asked her how much Muggle blood she had, outraged by the anti-Muggle propaganda she taught as professor of Muggle Studies during the 1997–1998 school year, when Lord Voldemort was in control of the Ministry of Magic.[2]

Whether twin Slytherin students Flora and Hestia Carrow are part of this family is unknown.
