Weasley is the surname of a large and traditionally pure-blooded wizarding family. The Weasleys are related to many other magical families, such as the Prewett family, the House of Black, the Longbottom family, the Crouch family and even some Muggle families such as the Fairfax family. Traditionally, members of the Weasley family have been red-haired and Sorted into Gryffindor house at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, though the new generation of Weasleys have put an end to many of these trends.
Although being included in the Pure-Blood Directory as part of the Sacred Twenty-Eight, the Weasleys hated their inclusion as they claim to have ancestral ties to many prominent Muggle families. Their protests led to them being labeled as 'blood traitors', a title the Weasleys wore proudly for generations.
The family home of the Weasley family, affectionately named the Burrow, is located in Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon, England, and is located near the homes of other families such as the Diggorys, Fawcetts, Lovegoods and the Muggle Fairfax family.
After the graduation of Arthur and Molly Weasley's third son, Percival Weasley, he disappeared from the Burrow upon returning home, leaving a lengthy note that detailed the neglect he had suffered at the hands of the other Weasleys. The Weasleys' guilt only worsened after the diary of Percy Weasley was uncovered and read by the rest of the family, which gave insight towards Percy's despair. Wracked with guilt, the Weasley family fractured; William moved back to Egypt to continue his Curse-Breaking career, Charlie returned to Romania to tend to Dragons and Ron eventually moved to Russia to compete in a professional Chess circuit. Although the family eventually reconciled with Percy, he never forgot the loneliness of his childhood and still keeps his family at arms-length; Molly's vision of one big happy Weasley family indefinitely shattered.
