Finch-Fletchley is the surname of a Muggle family. They must have had some distant magical blood, however,[1] as Justin Finch-Fletchley turned out to be a Muggle-born wizard.

The family's double-barrelled name suggests that they are wealthy, as does the fact that Justin's parents planned to send him to Eton, a very prestigious English school, before he received an invitation to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991.[2]
