I'm adding a {{Verify}} tag to this. There needs to have been a direct mention of this person to merit their own article, otherwise it should be removed. - Nick O'Demus 18:57, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

British wording.

I always thought Mrs. was correct, rather than Mrs; can someone correct me if I'm wrong? I'd rather not start another edit war. HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 00:53, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Titles such as Mr and Mrs are spelled without full stops in the Bloomsbury versions of the Harry Potter books. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 00:58, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 00:59, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Canon?

Is Mrs Prewett ever mentioned directly in canon. If not, we should delete this article. I also wonder the same about her husband.--Rodolphus (talk) 15:35, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

I can't think of either being directly mentioned (and searching for this would be hard) but given that they had 3 children they likely existed (Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration probably has something about not conjuring life from nothingness, (if you can't conjure food) but then again there are examples like the Snake Summons Spell so perhaps not? Unless the snake is not conjured but rather 'apparated' from elsewhere, which raises all sorts of questions of which snake is selected to be summoned...) Then again the parents of Mr & Mrs Prewitt likely existed, and their parents and so forth, so probably best not to have articles unless they are clearly mentioned - I'll try to hunt down any info. --Ironyak1 (talk) 15:49, May 31, 2016 (UTC)
ETA one or the other has to exist for Molly to have an aunt Muriel of course, but perhaps there is something more to go by --Ironyak1 (talk) 15:58, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

Excactly, our policy is, if I remember corectly that only those relatives directly mentioned get articles.

The only mentions I can remember:

Ir mentions in the first book that Ron's chessboard once belonged to his grandfather. It doesn´t mention if he got it from Septimus or from his mother's father, so we could keep this article.

In OP, Sirius mentions that he is distantly related to Molly, but doesn´t mention her parents.

All other times the Prewetts are mentioned, it just talks abnout her brothers.

So, I think we should keep the article on Mr Prewett (possible direct mention in PS) but should delete the article on Mrs Prewett. (no direct mention apparently)--Rodolphus (talk) 16:01, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

But Aunt Muriel could be the sister of either Molly's mom or dad, so would that work the same as the owner of Ron's chessboard? --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:15, May 31, 2016 (UTC)
