The Franciscans were a group of Catholic religious orders founded in 1209 by Francis of Assisi.[1] Historically, they served as missionaries and preachers, and have devoted themselves to lives of austerity.[1]

Brother Benedict, a Franciscan monk from Worcestershire who lived during the Middle Ages, recorded an encounter with a Jarvey in his monastery's herb garden in a manuscript.[2] Being a Muggle, he did not know the creature's name or its magical nature, describing it simply as a "Ferret of monstrous size" that insulted his baldness and bit his nose.[2] The Friar did not believe his story, asking if he had been drinking Brother Boniface's turnip wine.[2]
