Mason was the surname of an affulent Muggle family.

In 1992, Mr Mason was the wealthy builder invited by Vernon Dursley to have a dinner party at his home along with his wife, because he was hoping to secure his investment in his drill company.

However, their dinner with the Dursleys was ruined and the deal was not secured following the unexpected arrival of Dobby, who destroyed Petunia Dursley's prized pudding in an attempt to prevent Harry Potter from going to Hogwarts that year. The dinner could have been potentially saved with some ice cream as a replacement desert, but following Dobby's use of the Hover Charm in a Muggle home resulted in the Ministry of Magic sending Harry a letter via Owl, believing he had used magic in front of Muggles and warned him about doing so. Mrs Mason however also happened to suffer from Ornitophobia, the mortal fear of birds, and the presence of the Owl and the dropping of its letter on her head caused to her become terrified and she subsequently fled the house. Mr Mason followed immediately afterwards, and angrily accused the Dursleys of being lunatics.[1]
