Henry Potter, also known as Harry, was a pure-blood wizard who served on the Wizengamot from 1913 to 1921. He was the father of Fleamont Potter, the paternal grandfather of James Potter, the great-grandfather of Harry Potter, and an ancestor of James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna Potter.


Henry was born somewhere in England in or prior to 1896.[1] He was a direct descendant of Hardwin and Iolanthe Potter on his father's side.[2] His mother was a member of the Fleamont family.[2] It was her dying wish that Henry preserve her maiden name, which would otherwise die with her, and thus he named his son Fleamont.[2]

Henry served as a member of the Wizengamot from 1913 to 1921.[2] He caused a minor controversy by publicly condemning then-Minister for Magic Archer Evermonde's decision to forbid the wizarding community from aiding Muggles during the First World War.[2] Henry's outspoken pro-Muggle views were one of the chief reasons for the Potter family's exclusion from the Sacred Twenty-Eight.[2]
