One cannot begin without a proper genealogy.

Father's line:
Sir Cavin Goodman the Scrivner (1794 - 1909). Irma's pureblood great-grandfather (or Great-great-grandfather on her father's side), an official scribe of the Ministry.  His speed and accuracy with important documents pertaining to Magical/Muggle affairs during the First Anglo-Ashanti War led to him being knighted by King George IV in 1826 and granted a small parcel of land near Fingringhoe, Essex.  This land turned out to be a marsh, almost unliveable even by wizard standards.  He quietly married Tamerina Jarrow, the pure-blood daughter of the mayor of Fingringhoe, giving the land he'd just been granted back to its former caretaker as dowry.  They had two sickly children, Cavin II and Colin.  Sir Cavin returned to Wizarding London and his job with the Ministry with his wife and children in tow.  Later, Sir Cavin had an affair with an intern, a Halfblood witch named Beulah Carlington.  They produced Irma's grandmother, Georgette.  Shortly after Georgette's birth, Beulah died in a horrible Floo accident (back in the days before the Floo Network was regulated by the Ministry).  Georgette was adopted into the Scrivner family.

Colin Scrivner (1830 - ). Younger son of Sir Cavin and half-brother to Georgette.  Attempted a career as a scribe, but his poor penmanship and even poorer health kept him from succeeding.  Married at a young age to (even younger) pureblood witch Devina Lacedonia, and they had eleven children.

Darren Scrivner (1862 - 1911). Grandson of Sir Cavin. Member of the Aurors.  Married pureblood Edna Troideux, and had twin children, Marlestowe and Edelbert, though Edelbert died at birth.  Darren was killed during the IWW.

Marlestowe Scrivner(1899 -). Great-grandson of Sir Cavin.  Chief publicist for the Puddlemere United Quidditch team.  Married Anise Barleycorn in 1930.

Mother's line:
Beulah Carlington (1822 - 1843). Half-blood witch (of a muggleborn and a muggle) who weaseled her way into the Ministry, had an affair with her boss, gave birth to a love-child, and quietly died in a horrific Floo accident.

Georgette Barleycorn (Fitz-scrivner) (1843 - 1909). Illegitimate daughter of Sir Cavin and Beulah Carlington.  Adopted into the Scrivner line.  Showed great promise as an official scribe in the Ministry.  Later married her pureblood boss Reophan Barleycorn, and produced two children- Finella and Anise.

Anise Scrivner (Barleycorn) (1901 -). Granddaughter of Sir Cavin. Novelist.  Married Marlestowe Scrivner in 1930.


Her father is her second cousin on her mother's side, while her mother is her 1st cousin (twice removed) on her father's side.  She is her own 2nd cousin (once removed).


I'm not really looking for adoptions, though if you feel the urge to dig in and do so, I'm happy to oblige.  This is more for the purpose of filling in holes in her family tree, and making connections to other families on the board.  With the exception of Finella Barleycorn, all of the people mentioned are pureblood.

Here are some more distant relations that could be connected to other families.  Remember that if you are connecting a female to the tree by marriage, she will likely lose her family name (to Scrivner), though later generations could change it further.  We have:
    - a wife of Cavin II Scrivner (P), born somewhere in the 1840s.  They may have had children (that you might be related to).
    -ten (10!) siblings of Darren Scrivner (P) (and/or their spouses).  These are intentionally left vague gender-wise to allow maximum compatibility with existing genealogies.  They could be born anywhere from 1863 (a year after Darren) to 1915 (the year their mother died).
    -a husband for Finella Barleycorn (H), Irma's aunt.  I was thinking of leaving her a spinster bachlorette, but if you've got an opening for a connection, I'm all ears.

I spent a little time looking up period attire/faces (so not modern face claims) for the older generations.  Feel free to suggest new ones.

Again, I'm not trying to sell off/give away relatives/babies- I'm trying to establish connections with other families (esp. purebloods).

Here is an updated list of relationships.  Cavin II's branch is too remote to consider at this point.  Finella Barleycorn is going to be a spinster.  I'm focusing on Irma's paternal grandfather's siblings (the children of Colin).

The format is:
Male Name(birth year) m(arried). Female NameUnderlined names are people who have not been claimed as a relation.

Darren(1862) m. Edna Troideaux (potential opening with her relatives)  Irma's Paternal Grandfather and Nan.
Artur(1864) - open.
Guendolen(1866) - open.
Buckley(1871) m. Arlene Turnblatt. Grandparents of Cormac MacKenzie.
Quintus(1876) - open.
Heledd(1877) m. Cadogan Cadwallader.  Parents to an entire branch of Cads, including granddaughter Lamia Cadwallader.
Tegvyan(1878) m. Hubert Detweiler.
Winthrop(1880) - open. The fat twin.
Winslow(1880) - open. The thin twin.
Nesta(1885) m. Norman Lancaster.  Parents of Allen and Charlotte Lancaster, and grandparents of Emerson Vartan.
Milton(1887) m. Erika Rothstein - German/Austrian pureblood family.

...and a new Generation of Scrivners!  Irma has half-siblings and children of her own, now up for grabs!  If you're interested in any of these for your own inventory of charries, drop me a line!
(ages are as of the first day of term 1956-7.  Still a WIP)

The SIBS

Name: David "Dave" Scrivner
Age: 11 (11 October, 1944)
Possible Faceclaim: Charles Vandervaart
Brief Bio: Twin brother to Devin.  The smart one, David had a more robust vocabulary than Irma when he was only five years old.  He is a planner, looking twice before doing anything brash, unless his brother calls for help.  He often finds himself put into situations of fun by his brother, when he'd have preferred to just read about it later.  Dave is fluent in English, Spanish, and Latin.  His biggest weakness is in the fluttering eyelashes of a pretty girl- he'd forget his own brother over a chance to talk with a cute girl.
House: Ravenclaw
Status:Taken.

Name: Devin "Dev" Scrivner
Age: 11 (11 October, 1944)
Possible Faceclaim: Charles Vandervaart
Brief Bio: Twin brother to David.  The wild one, Dev often doesn't bother to look before he leaps, going where the adventure takes him.  He is decidedly not bright with the books, and very fidgety to boot; he'd rather be up on a rooftop or in a cave or running through the woods.  His brother is his best friend, and he can't imagine him not being there for him.  Dev has an unparalleled curiosity- he had to be stung by a bee twice just to be sure the swelling and nausea was from the bug and not something he'd eaten earlier.  He has suffered more concussions than a kid really should...
House: Gryffindor
Status: Taken.

Name: Cressida "Cress" Scrivner
Age: 8 (21 June, 1948)
Possible Faceclaim: (placeholder)
Brief Bio: With two rambunctious older brothers and a stepsister reported to be a real hellion, Cress has a lot to live up to.  She is very competitive by nature, always trying to outdo her siblings.  She could fly a broom better than her brothers by the time she was five years old (Irma taught her), and she is very proud that she has more scars on her knees than even the mighty Irma.
Cress takes Irma's old motto 'Look before you leap, but leap anyway' in a new direction, adding, 'and make sure someone is watching or it doesn't count.'
House: probably Slytherin.
Status: Taken.

Name: Beauregard "Beau" Scrivner
Age: 4 (18 May, 1952)
Possible Faceclaim: (placeholder)
Brief Bio: The only thing Beau has a hard time keeping in his mouth is his opinion- he is a paste-eater, a pinecone-muncher.  Everything goes into his mouth at some point, almost as if he experiences life through his tongue and nose.  That said, he is a surprisingly picky eater- he is a connoisseur of many things, and he isn't fond of overly-complicated foods.  Unlike his older siblings, Beau does not like to get dirty or climb trees or go exploring.  Instead, he lets his imagination wild, letting the characters in his head do the exploring for him.
House: probably Hufflepuff.
Status: Available.


The KIDS

Name: Moira Sylvia Wolffe
Age: 6 (21 December, 1949)
Possible Faceclaim: Kathryn Newton
Brief Bio: Mini-Irma is perhaps a little more headstrong, a little more rebellious.  As the oldest, it is her right and duty to lead, which she does with gusto and confidence, if not skill or even relative purpose.  She is not bossy, and she'll tear you a new one if you disagree!
Moira loves her parents, she really does, but they can be so boring sometimes!  She wants to make a name for herself, even if that name isn't a compliment.
House: probably Hufflepuff or Slytherin.
Status: Taken.

Name: Bonnie Juniper Wolffe
Age: 6 (31 August, 1950)
Possible Faceclaim: (placeholder)
Brief Bio: As Moira is boisterous, Bonnie is quiet.  As Moira is outgoing, Bonnie is reserved.  And while Moira is keeping you enthralled (distracted), Bonnie is pulling the prank or the crime or the clever thing, as her whim dictates.  The little redheaded girl is all smiles and sweets on the surface, hiding a snarky wit under the surface.
Bonnie tends to be a calming influence on the Wolffe household, not overreacting or fueling the fire most of the time.  That said, she will defend her favorite Quidditch team tooth-and-nail.
House: probably Hufflepuff.
Status: Taken.

Name: Rosemary "Rosie" Naimh Wolffe
Age: 4 (24 May, 1952)
Possible Faceclaim: (placeholder)
Brief Bio: Quiet, cheerful, and bubbly, very easily distracted, energetic, imaginative, and curious.  Overall quite easy to raise in that she doesn't often throw hissy fits and will do as she's told (provided an interesting explanation is provided).  She will disappear if you take your eyes off of her for a second; she is easily bored.  She has a love of incredible awful puns, and is known for lovingly backtalking her father.
House: probably Hufflepuff.
Status: Taken!

Name: Juliet Hazel Wolffe
Age: 0 (8 January, 1956)
Possible Faceclaim: (placeholder)
Brief Bio:
Current favorite word: spoon!


House: probably Hufflepuff.
Status: Available.
