Ignotus Peverell and Linfred of Stinchcombe were both wizards, and their surname was Potter. Up until the birth of Harry Potter in 1980, the Potters were Pure-blood, but they were barred from the Sacred Twenty-Eight due to their egalitarian position on blood purity. Gryffindor House has always been the home of the Potters at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The family apparently had a branch in America, with relatives who presumably attended the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the most renowned of which was Auror Abraham Potter, one of the earliest practitioners of his trade on American territory.
