The Blacks and the Potters are related!

Me and another user had a whole ginourmus disscussion over her blog and we think that we figured this out! The blacks and the Potters are relater and teh Lupins are also related to the blacks and the potters and this is why!

Sirius said int he fifth book quote "all pureblood families are realted!" meaning that Sirius and Merope Riddle nee Guant are related meaning that Regulus and Sirius are realted to Voldemort. Also Voldemort is decended from the second brother (otherwise how would have Marvolo gotten the ring) and harry and the potters are decended from the third brother (thats how they got the cloak). Also, Nymphadora's mother who is Bellatrix's sister who is Sirius's cousin married Lupin married that all of those families are related!

Yes, and the Blacks and Potters are related anyway because Harry married Ginny, who's family is related to the Blacks.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 23:06, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

It said possibly so I thought that it ment before they were married...

Well, it sadi possibly next to black family so I thought that that would meant that they could have been married before Harry and Ginny were married. Because before James and Siruis even met they were first cousins once rmoved or something like that!

Family (I)

We all know that...

But we are not sure on that...

Here's what I think, I think that...

Charlus Potter can't be Ignotus's son, if he were then he would have been Charlus Peverell. Ignotus must have had at least one female descendant who received the cloak and married a Potter. --BachLynn23 16:20, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

It is possible that he was named Charlus Peverell but changed his surname to Potter. --Danniesen 30 July 2010 13:08

I have been thinking about it. The Mirror of Erised mentioned 10 people when Harry saw it. Some had green eyes, one had the same knees. I think the 10 people are:

--Danniesen 31 July 2010 10:34

Haven't been able to find Charlus in a name meaning search but did find Carlus as a Latin form of Charles - so likely that is who Charlie Weasley was named after. We don't know how many sons Linfred (the Potterer) of Stinchcombe had or whether they all took the surname Potter - it is possible that Harry and Charlus descended from different sons of Linfred. Not sure how far back the blood protection that Lily bestowed on Harry goes in the generations. (Vaudree (talk) 22:58, December 13, 2015 (UTC))

Who the Potters are close to

I'm just curious, but being that this article refers to the entire Potter family, and not individuals, is it really wholly accurate to say that "the Potters" are/were "very" close to the weasley family, sirius black and Albus Dumbledore? Some of the Potters were close to the weasley family, from Harry on, there's no record anywhere that the Weasley's were close to the potters before harry and ron went to school together. Sirius Black was close to at least 3 generations of potters (James, probably James's parents, and definitely harry). It just seems like there are too many generations of Potters to be so specific about who the Potters were "very" close to. --BachLynn23 01:51, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Family (II)

"Ignotus Peverell and Mrs. Peverell are the parents of Charlus Peverell who changed name to Potter, and find a wife, Dorea Black, they got married and had a son named Mr. Potter who find a wife, Mrs. Potter, they got married and had a son named James Potter who find a wife, Lily Evans, they got married ans had a son named Harry Potter who find a wife, Ginny Weasley, they got married and had two son's and a daughter named Albus Potter, James Potter, and Lily Potter"
—That's the way i think the family is in relation with each other. --Danniesen September 1 2010 21:49
If that assumption was correct, the Peverells would have lived in around the 1860s or 1870s. This is incorrect, as we know the Peverells lived well before Beedle the Bard (15th century) and have also predated Emeric the Evil (early Middle Ages) and Barnabas Deverill (18th century). We also know the Peverell name was among the first pure-blood names to become extinct in the male line, so it is very unlikely this happened at that point in history. Thus, your theory is very lacking. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:23, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Charlus Potter's name

Are we absolutely 150% sure that this is not meant to be Charles Potter and the handwriting was not written poorly/difficult to read?  S*a*p*h*n*a 18:16, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Definitely "Charlus". See here. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:00, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Potion Skills and Flowery Names

I find it interesting that Harry has essentially potion skills and flowery names on both sides of his family. On James' side, the Potter could be trace back to Linfred of Stinchcombe, "originator of a number of remedies that evolved into potions still used to this day, including Skele-Gro and Pepperup Potion" and Iolanthe Peverell, Iolanthe means violet flower. On Lily's side, Lily was gifted at potion making and her name Lily, which could be a flower, and a violet one too. It seems destiny for James and Lily to be together. Or who knows maybe they could even be distant related. While the direct line from Linfred to James is of pureblood, but as the Pottermore article said, there have been other in the family that had married muggle/muggleborns. James' distant cousins may have married into the Evans and and be Lily's ancestors. Lily is muggleborn but who knows maybe it's a very distant cousins of James from way back who may have married into the Evans family and that branch been marrying only muggles/muggleborns that by the time the line reach Lily, it may only seems Lily is muggleborn because she's like 1/1,080 magic.Seasrmar (talk) 09:20, December 26, 2015 (UTC)

I think that JKR said in an interview (possibly in relation to Hermione, but it would also apply to what you just said) that many muggle-borns had squib ancestry.

The three Peverell brothers did not have flowery names, but Iolanthe did - so it is more than likely that Iolanthe inherited her flowery name from either her mother's or her grandmother's family rather than her paternal line.

I am not a James fan and wonder how much better things would have been if James was never born - though I do like his family history. James makes the lead character of the old Rocket Robin Hood cartoon look meek and humble by comparison. (Vaudree (talk) 16:15, December 26, 2015 (UTC))
