It isn't stated anywhere in the series that Alice was a Prewett. ~anonymous passerby —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

I'm not sure where that's from, I think its from an interview. I'll look into it. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:06, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Error In Relatives Section

Algie Longbottom is not Alice's uncle-in-law as an uncle-in-law is the husband of a blood related aunt.--Seán Travers 18:49, 11 April 2008 (UTC)Seán Travers, 19:49, 11 April 2008.

Actually, that's wrong; he is an uncle-in-law. An uncle-in-law would be the uncle of her husband, which Algie is. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 07:05, May 20, 2014 (UTC)


Alice's last name isn't mentioned. I can't find it anywhere but here that her last name is Prewett, if it is (which I highly doubt) could someone link the actual source. But it's pretty implausible that Alice was a Prewett since Ginny had Prewett blood, then so would Neville, and in GOF, who would honestly take a cousin to the Yule Ball? Honestly, even Neville wouldn't be that desperate. So I think Prewett should be removed until a reliable and listed source appears. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

I think its mentioned that she is the cousin of Molly, or something like that. I'm not sure where. CavalierOne added that information (as far as I know). I'll ask him about it when I get a chance. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:36, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Just to mention it is possible for Alice's last name to be Prewett because all pure bloods are related to each other.-- 03:06, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Possible? Yes. Proven? No. - Nick O'Demus 05:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Just an idle visitor with an eidetic memory here, but there is no mention, at any point in any of the novels about Alice's parentage. The only thing that we know for sure is that her parents were each a witch and wizard, as Neville is considered to be pure-blooded. If Alice were a pure-blood, then she might be related to the Prewetts I guess, but it's pure speculation. The line I think that Dark Jedi613 is thinking of is in OotP, where Sirius and Harry are looking at the family tree and Sirius mentions that he thinks that Molly is a cousin by marriage. The simplest way to explain that would be if she were the niece of Ignatius Prewett and Lucretia Prewett(Black). Neville's (and his parents') possible relationship to the Black family are never mentioned. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Article´s name?

Why is the article called Alice Prewett? I think that it ´should be Alice Longbottom.--Rodolphus 11:26, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Actor who Plays Alice longbottom

In the Order of the Phoenix we see a picture of Alice longbottom and Frank, who is the actor that is Alice in that picture? The Unbeholden 18:20, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Harry granger 19:41, February 21, 2010 (UTC) I'm not sure, but I saw this page. There is mentioned that Lisa Wood should be the actress. It's an autograph page,

Not an Auror

While rereading GoF I found it odd in Ch 30 that Barty Crouch Jr and others are accused of "capturing an Auror - Frank Longbottom - and subjecting him to the Cruciatus Curse..." and "using the Cruciatus Curse on Longbottom's wife, when he would not give you information." Later Dumbledore said "His father, Frank, was an Auror just like Professor Moody. He and his wife were tortured..." This implies that while Frank was an Auror, Alice was not.

Any information out there that would dispute this interpretation? Mr Norrell 08:23, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

Neville´s grandmother refers to Neville´s parents as "Aurors" when they are at St. Mungos I think. --Rodolphus 13:06, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

"They were Aurors, you know, and very well respected within the Wizarding community. Highly gifted, the pair of them."
—OotP ch.23, p.514[src]
Yup. - Nick O'Demus 13:28, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, so it's either evidence of sexism on the characters' parts or of an author's revision in a sequel. The wording I noted really seemed odd, hence my question. Mr Norrell 07:01, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
It could also be that both Frank and Alice were Aurors, then Alice retired from official Auror work for at least the time being when Neville was born so that she could care for him while he was little. That way both Frank and Alice would have been Aurors, but at the time of the trial, it would make sense to refer to only Frank as an Auror. -Jacqueline
Jacqueline that would make a bunch of sense- Joe

Wrong Info

The information stating that Neville was a few months old when Alice was tortured is wrong. The torture of Alice and Frank occurred AFTER the war had ended and Harry was over a year old at the time. Since Neville's birthday is very close to Harry's, he would be over a year old as well. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Alice Longbottom's maiden name

I have not been able to find the article, but I remember one of the interviews with JKR after Deathly Hallows was released, she gave Alice's maiden name as Fortescue. I am positive of this, and as she has mentioned in several of her last talks, Florean Fortescue's capture and death were originally significant to the Elder Wand plot, but she cut it from the book. She has said the backstory would be in her Encyclopedia, and The fact Alice was a Fortescue is probably also important to this storyline. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

If you can find a link to that interview, then that info can be added. - 02:09, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

wasn't It Molly Weasley that has the maiden name Prewett? 12:13, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

It's true, the maiden name of Molly Weasley is Prewett, the maiden name of Alice Longbottom is unknown as long as there is no source that her maiden name is also Prewett. <spanstyle="border:1px solid #E56717;"><fontstyle="background:#F75D59;color:gold;"> Harry granger </font><fontstyle="background:yellow;color:black;">  Talk </font><fontstyle="background:yellow;color:;"> <fontstyle="background: #99CCFF;color:#993300;"> contribs</font><fontstyle="background: #99CCFF;color:#993300;"> </font></font></span> 14:52, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

I thought, or heard Alice Longbottoms' Maiden name (Surname) was 'Lightwood'.  But then again so many people thought she might be Alice Prewett TeamTwilight468 (talk) 23:28, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

@TeamTwilight468 ,  Lightwood is a surname from an entirely different fandom! Are you sure about this?- Demi-Shadowhunter-God34

Auror, Redux

The entry on Pottermore for Mr and Mrs Longbottom states that Frank was an Auror, that he was captured and tortured, and that when he failed to provide any information they went after his wife Alice, who also did not know anything. Never does it mention that Alice was an Auror. The only evidence we have that Alice was an Auror after all is Augusta saying so in Order of the Phoenix. Does the statement in Pottermore, particularly in conjunction with the statement in Goblet of Fire override what Augusta says of her daughter-in-law in Order of the Phoenix, or no? But wait ... doesn't Dumbledore say Alice was an Auror? So confused here. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:46, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

Bumping? Could someone please explain? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:57, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Bellatrix confirms it: she describes Neville as "the son of the Aurors" and, given that she tortured them, she would know. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 22:15, August 11, 2017 (UTC)


The article states that Alice attended Hogwarts. I don't recall where this was revealed. It would be handy if this information could be cited appropriately to resolve confusion. Starstuff (Owl me!) 04:29, July 29, 2017 (UTC)
