Pureblood History vs. PA

on Fri Aug 08, 2014 4:56 pm
Supposedly, it was one Cantankerus Nott that wrote out the Pure-Blood Directory, which was published in the 1930s. Though it was done so anonymously, many are convinced he is the one who did so, because of an addition known as the Sacred Twenty-Eight. Not all members of the list actually belonged there, but were counted, regardless.

The Sacred Twenty-Eight are British families that were said to still be pureblooded by the 1930's. According to his list, they included:


  • Abbot
  • Avery
  • Black
  • Bulstrode
  • Burke
  • Carrow
  • Crouch
  • Fawley
  • Flint
  • Gaunt
  • Greengrass
  • Lestrange
  • Longbottom
  • Macmillan
  • Malfoy
  • Nott
  • Ollivander
  • Parkinson
  • Prewett
  • Rosier
  • Rowle
  • Selwyn
  • Shacklebolt
  • Shafiq
  • Slughorn
  • Travers
  • Weasley
  • Yaxley


Of these, we are fully aware that the Weasley family is not truly included in this list, as they have Muggle ancestors. Through, PA, however, other things have altered this list as well.

1. Both Greengrass daughters married into other families, thus bringing an end to their line.
2. The Weasleys should have long-since been removed, due to Muggle relatives.
3. The Abbott family married with Muggles and Muggleborns since the 1930s. This means both the Abbotts and the Longbottoms are removed.
4. Ernie Macmillan married Susan Bones, thus making their children half-bloods and pulling them from this list.
8. Pansy Parkinson married into the Nott family without any male siblings, thus ending the Parkinson listing here.

If one were to re-write this list based on the above changes, it would consist of the following "Sacred Twenty-One" families.


  • Avery
  • Black [line ended; no children]
  • Bulstrode
  • Burke
  • Carrow
  • Crouch
  • Fawley
  • Flint
  • Lestrange
  • Malfoy
  • Nott
  • Ollivander
  • Prewett
  • Rosier
  • Rowle
  • Selwyn
  • Shacklebolt
  • Shafiq
  • Slughorn
  • Travers
  • Yaxley


Will update this list as things change around the site Smile

Ah! Yes, thank you. I couldnt remember all of the details while I was writing it xD

Actually. If there weren't any more Gaunts it doesn't matter who her son was. I didn't think to check on that.
