The Harry Potter Canon

The southwestern tip of England is the county of Cornwall, wherein lie Falmouth and Bodmin Moor. Cornwall makes up part of England’s West Country, along with Devon and Somerset. There is a Muggle Duke of Cornwall, a position with a wizarding connection since several centuries ago the Duke fathered Morgana, a famous witch (FW).

Cornish Pixies – the type let loose in the classroom by Gilderoy Lockhart in CS6 – are native to here, and in fact in the seventeenth century Dymphna Furmage experienced an ‘unfortunate incident’ with pixies while on holiday in Cornwall (FW). One has to wonder whether it could have been more unfortunate than Neville’s incident in Lockhart’s class, when he got hung on the classroom chandelier and then fell (CS6).
