BiographyEdit

Life before discoveryEdit

1979-1990Edit

Mr Granger was a well-qualified individual who held a career in dentistry. He eventually married Mrs Granger and on 19 September, 1979 had a daughter, Hermione Granger. The couple chose a "nice, unusual" first name that others had difficulty pronouncing because they "liked to prove how clever they were."[1]

Hermione attended a Muggle school and was rather bright for her age. Sometime in her early life Hermione would go camping in the Forest of Dean with her parents.[2] A memory of Hermione's of her parents workplace is that one time whilst at work, her father was bitten by a boy and he was required to be taken to hospital to receive several stitches.

Life after discoveryEdit

1990-1991Edit

At some point prior to 1 September, 1991, Mr Granger and his wife received a visit from a representative of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry concerning their daughter's acceptance. This visit revealed their daughter, Hermione, to be a Muggle-born witch, something that apparently came as quite a surprise. Hermione, however, was very pleased, and her parents were supportive of their child.

1992-1996Edit

In 1992, Mr Granger and his wife accompanied their daughter to Diagon Alley to purchase school supplies, and met her friends Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, as well as Ron's family. Arthur Weasley was delighted to meet them, as he had a fascination for the Muggle world, and took the Grangers out for a drink.[3] Proud of their daughter, Mr and Mrs Granger correspond with Hermione by owl post while she was at school,[4] and took her for a holiday to France in the summer of 1993.[5] Mr and Mrs Granger planned to take her skiing during the Christmas holidays of 1995, but Hermione cancelled and instead ended up going to 12 Grimmauld Place to cheer up Harry, who had been refusing to speak to any of the house's occupants[4] and spent Christmas with the Weasley family.

1997-1998Edit

In 1997, Hermione modified her father's memory so that he believed he was Wendell Wilkins, who didn't have a daughter and who wanted to live in Australia, and did the same to her mother so that she believed she was Monica Wilkins. This was to protect her parents from Death Eaters during the worst of the Second Wizarding War, as their daughter was very close friends with Harry Potter and she was a Muggle-born.[6]

Sometime after the war ended in 1998, Hermione found him and restored his memories back to their original state.[7] Later in his life he would become a grandfather to Rose and Hugo Weasley and the father-in-law of Ron Weasley.
