Wilfred Elphick (1112-1199) was a wizard who lived during the 12th century. He was the first wizard in the world to be gored by an African Erumpent. On his Chocolate Frog Card, he is shown in bandages, so it can be presumed that he survived this attack.


Wilfred means "wanting peace," from the Old English wil, "desire," and fred, "peace."[1] The surname Elphick derived from the Old English given name Aelfheah, which meant "high elf," from aelf, "elf," and heah, "high."[2]
