Mrs Nott was a witch, the wife of Mr Nott, and the mother of Theodore Nott. She died sometime after her son's birth in 1979 or 1980 but before his fifth year of 1995, leaving her elderly husband to raise Theodore on his own.[1] Theodore's ability to see Thestrals[2] may have originated in witnessing her death.

Her husband became one of Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters around 1955[3], but Mrs Nott was still young enough to have a child twenty-five years later, suggesting that there may have been a significant age difference between the two. However, this may not be true, as it could have been due to giving birth to Theodore at such an advanced age that caused her death.
