The family was forced to go into hiding after a prophecy was made concerning Lord Voldemort and their infant son. She and James were betrayed by Pettigrew and thus both were murdered by Voldemort on Halloween.
In the “Potter” books, Harry’s parents are killed by the evil wizard Voldemort when he is an infant and he is taken in by his aunt and uncle. However, his aunt and uncle mistreat him, including forcing him to sleep in a cupboard and denying him food.
For years, fans have wondered how the Potter family came to be so rich, especially given that Harry’s parents, Lily and James, were only 21 when they were murdered by Lord Voldemort. It was these “medicinal services,” including “Skele-gro” and “Pepper Potion,” that were the beginnings of the Potter family fortune.
James and Lily Potter were a married couple and the parents of the famous Harry Potter. They were both Gryffindor students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and members of the Order of the Phoenix. They were both murdered by Lord Voldemort on Hallowe’en in 1981, while trying to protect their infant son.
Originally Answered: Why did voldermort kill Harry’s parents? Voldemort killed his parents because they were in his way of killing Harry, the baby they both had sacrificed their lives to protect. He wanted to kill Harry because according to a prophecy, Harry was destined to destroy Voldemort.
Lily’s parents died in a car crash. James’ family is a mixed bag because his parents Fleamont and Euphemia died of dragonpox, Dorea Potter died of unknown causes in 1977, and leaves James Potter with his great uncle and cousin.
James and Lily inherited the money. James’s father, Fleamont, invented Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion (what Hermione used to tame her hair for the Yule Ball.) Fleamont Potter made quite a bit of money from his invention, and upon retirement, sold the company for a large profit.
Dragon pox carried them off within days of each other, due to their advanced age, and James Potter then inherited Ignotus Peverell’s Invisibility Cloak.” So, Harry couldn’t have gone to live with his grandparents. He had to go live with his aunt and uncle. They were dead.
During the Quidditch World Cup, the Weasley twins had bet all their money with a bookie named Ludo Bagman, who fails to make face in the films. Thus, it is Harry that gave the twins the money so they could fund their store.
It was just that he had a slight wish to own a firebolt after all he was a kid and who wouldn’t want to own one majestic broomstick used by professional quidditch players. Firebolts are expensive broomsticks and there were many other. Suitable substitutes available such as the cleansweep and nimbus.
Food cannot be conjured from thin air. So the Weasley’s magic does not help them with their (presumably) largest expense. This is why they are poor, even with magic.
