The only son of Caspar Crouch and Charis Black was a pure-blood wizard.[2] He had two sisters.

Behind the scenes

  • It is possible that Caspar Crouch’s son was Bartemius Crouch Sr., who is described as an "elderly man" at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. However, Caspar Crouch’s wife, Charis, was born in 1919, which means her son was probably born no earlier than 1936, which would cast doubt on him being "elderly" in 1994.
  • It should be kept in mind that Rowling wrote all but the first chapter of Goblet of Fire in the third-person limited point-of-view, which means that the description of Crouch as "elderly" actually represents Harry’s perception. A 58-year-old man might very well appear "elderly" to a 14-year-old boy, and it is also quite plausible that the tribulations Crouch went through during the First War would have prematurely aged him.

Notes and references

  1. On her website, Rowling confirmed that the Crouch family became extinct along with the Black family, which either means that Barty must have died before or during Harry's fifth year, or that the two pureblood families became extinct in similar fashions - not because these occurrences happened at the same time. As well as this, in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Chapter 36 (The Parting of the Ways), Dumbledore refers to Bartemius Crouch Jr. as "the last remaining member of a pure-blood family as old as any". meaninbg that all other members of the family are dead by 1996
