A wizarding family from Ottery St. Catchpole (GF6).

Notable members of the Fawcett family:
Miss S. Fawcett

Commentary

Etymology

Miss Fawcett is first mentioned in CS. Plumbing is important in that book, so "Fawcett" may be a purposeful play on "faucet" - perhaps foreshadowing the discovery of the snake carved into the sink in CS16.

Notes

The name of this family is borrowed from a friend of Rowling's, Professor Tonks Fawcett of the University of Edinburgh.

    Fawcett is actually the last name of a friend of JK Rowling.

    • I didn’t know that! Just researched it and pulled up the article. I’ll add that right away. Thanks!
