Evans family

Mr. Evans (b. In or Before 1942 - d. between July 31, 1971 and October 31, 1981) was a Muggle, married to Mrs. Evans. He had two daughters: Petunia and Lily Evans. The family lived in Cokeworth, near the home of the dysfunctional Snape family.

While Petunia was a Muggle like her parents, Lily was a Muggle-born witch and will enjoy the Wizarding world, something Mr. Evans and Mrs. Evans were very proud of. Petunia, on the other hand, was jealous and considered her sister a "freak". Mr. and Mrs. Evans suffered a normal Muggle death, though the exact cause is unknown; it was sometime before the murder of their younger daughter in 1981.

Through his elder daughter, they are related to the Muggle Dursley family, and through the younger, to the wizarding Potter and Weasley families.

Both died sometime between 31 July, 1971 and 31 October, 1981.



"I was the only one who saw her for what she was ... a freak! But for my mother and father, oh no, it was Lily this and Lily that, they were proud of having a witch in the family!"
Petunia to Harry Potter on Lily.[src]

Mr. Evans and his wife were extremely proud of their youngest daughter, Lily, and was slightly in awe of her magical abilities.

However, this made Petunia feel left out and jealous of her sister.



  1. Mr. Evans had to be at least 17 to conceive Petunia, who is born in the late 50s; if Petunia is born in 1959, which is likely, then her fathers birthdate must be in or before 1942.
