Avery was the surname of a pure-blood[1] wizarding family, and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. Its members have traditionally attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and recent members have been Death Eaters.

There were two people with the surname Avery, and unknown first names.


Avery is a surname of ambiguous origin. Some scholars believe that the name is derived from Every, which is the name of a county in Normandy, or Évreux, a noble family that ruled Navarra from 1328 to 1441.
