How do we know that Corvinus Gaunt was in Slytherin? There's no references that indicate that was Corvinus's house.

I removed Cadmus Peverell from the list of Corvinus Gaunt's relatives, because there's nothing in the books or on Pottermore to indicate those two were related. Marvolo Gaunt, born hundreds of years after Corvinus, was also descended from Peverell, but that doesn't mean Corvinus was. If anyone knows of anything canonical to indicate a relationship between Corvinus and Cadmus, please let me know. 

Cheers,

Hey! Just a quick note to say that "install" is the proper English way of spelling the word. It is also the way it is spelt according to the Oxford Dictionary of English. It also says that "instal" is just an alternative way of spelling it. I have never really seen anyone spell install as instal that way in here in Britain so technically its not really the UK spelling, at least not the main one anyway. It's no big deal but just thought I would mention it since we all try to spell things the UK here way! :) --May32 (talk) 11:54, June 30, 2016 (UTC)

Not picky on this either but Oxford Dictionaries lists install (British also instal) so either is correct (and not a typo ;). I can take it out of my BrE v AmE dictionary corrections however to help smooth relations across the pond. Cheer(s/io) --Ironyak1 (talk) 00:07, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
