Holden Ledbury was a Slytherin student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s. Along with Imogen Stretton, he blocked access to an area of the school grounds during the 1996–1997 school year, telling Harry Potter that this was due to "top secret Slytherin business."


The name "Holden" comes from a surname which was originally derived from a place name meaning "deep valley" in Old English. This is the name of the main character in J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye (1951), Holden Caufield.
