(Clean-up. It's never been stated the man wasn't spoken of because his profession was considered an embarrasment. Ron only says they don't talk about it. It's possible this is because of his rudeness toward Mr and Mrs Weasley mentioned on JKR's site.)

Revision as of 11:07, October 31, 2016

A male second cousin of Molly Weasley (née Prewett) became a stockbroker and/or an accountant in the Muggle world.[1][2] Ron Weasley told Harry Potter that this man was never spoken of by the Weasley household.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • J. K. Rowling revealed on her website that in an early draft of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, this character was married to a Muggle woman, and, against all expectation, had fathered a daughter who was a witch, Mafalda. Although he had previously been rude to Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, he and his wife were to have sought the Weasley family's help in introducing Mafalda to wizarding culture when they learned that she would be attending Hogwarts.
  • The information on Rowling's website states that Molly's second cousin was a stockbroker. This conflicts with the profession given by Ron Weasley in Philosopher's Stone.[2] However, it is possible that Ron, being unfamiliar with the Muggle world, was merely incorrect.
