"From here on in, I may be as woefully wrong as Humphrey Belcher, who decided the time was ripe for a cheese cauldron."
Albus Dumbledore[src]

Humphrey Belcher was a wizard who believed that a cheese cauldron was a good idea. Albus Dumbledore would later comment that he had been "woefully wrong" in this belief. Belcher could have been an inventor of a cauldron constructed from cheese.


"Humphrey" means "peaceful warrior" from the Germanic elements hun "warrior, bear cub" and frid "peace". The Normans introduced this name to England, where it replaced the Old English cognate Hunfrið, and it was regularly used through the Middle Ages.
