"No one lived after he decided ter kill 'em, no one except you, an' he'd killed some of the best witches and wizards of the age - the McKinnons, the Bones, the Prewetts - you were only a baby an' you lived."
Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter[src]

Mr Bones was the father of Amelia and Edgar Bones. He and his wife were killed by Voldemort during the First Wizarding War.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Mr Bones must have had a third child, as his granddaughter, Susan Bones, was niece to both his daughter Amelia and his son Edgar.
