The Fawleys were included in the Pure-Blood Directory (published anonymously in Britain, although widely believed to have been authored by Cantankerus Nott), which listed them as one of the twenty-eight truly pure-blood families (the so-called 'Sacred Twenty-Eight').
- Hector Fawley — Minister for Magic (1925 to 1939) who did not respond sufficiently seriously to the Gellert Grindelwald threat, which led to the global wizarding war of the 1940s.
- Sullivan Fawley — a Hufflepuff student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s
Behind the scenes
- The Fawleys (Aubrey and Julia) are characters in J. K. Rowling's novel The Casual Vacancy. In that novel, they are a rich aristocratic family and the owners of Sweetlove House, an historic manor in the outskirts of Pagford, whose ancestors were responsible for selling the nearby city of Yarvil a piece of Pagford land — one of the catalysts for the plot.
