Notes and references
- Harry Potter: The Exhibition, (see this image)
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 20 (Lord Voldemort's Request) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Chapter 18) - According to Albus Dumbledore in the HBP, Hepzibah was murdered ten years before his memory where he met with Tom Riddle. Dumbledore became Headteacher sometime between 1965 and 1971 according to Remus Lupin when he says "I was a very small boy when I received the bite...But then Dumbledore became Headmaster, and he was sympathetic." Ten years before then puts Hepzibah's death between 1955 and 1961.
- The Black family tapestry shows that Andromeda is younger than Bellatrix, who was born in 1951, and older than Narcissa, who was born in 1955.
- Sirius Black said Bertha was a few years above him at school. This means she had to have been at least two years older than him but no more than five because she would have left by the time he started. Sirius was born in 1959 which means Bertha had to have been born between September 1953 and August 1958.
