"I is looking after the Crouches all my life, and my mother is doing it before me, and my grandmother is doing it before her... oh what is they saying if they knew Winky was freed? Oh the shame, the shame!"

Winky's mother was a house-elf that faithfully served the Crouch family her entire life, as her mother before her did. After Winky was dismissed by her master, Bartemius Crouch Senior, in August 1994, Winky despaired at what her mother would say if she knew.[1]
