"Henry’s son was called Fleamont Potter. Fleamont was so called because it was the dying wish of Henry’s mother that he perpetuate her maiden name, which would otherwise die out."
—Fleamont legacy[src]

Fleamont was the surname of a pure-blood or half-blood[1] wizarding family. The mother of Henry Potter, who was born a Fleamont, asked on her deathbed for him to preserve her maiden name so it would not die out. Henry honoured her request by naming his son Fleamont Potter.[2]

Family history

Not much is known about the early history of the Fleamont family. Henry Potter's mother was a witch, who married into the Potter family, she had one son, Henry. Henry served on the Wizengamot from 1913 to 1921. He caused a minor controversy by publicly condemning then-Minister for Magic Archer Evermonde's decision to forbid the wizarding community from aiding Muggles during the First World War.[3] On her deathbed she asked Henry to preserve her maiden name, which would otherwise die out with her, as she was apparently the last of her line. He honoured her request by naming his son Fleamont.[4]

Harry Potter, best known for his famous defeat of the dangerous Dark Wizard Lord Voldemort, was a descendant of this family.
