Mr Potter was the husband of Mrs Potter and the father of James Potter I[1]. By consequence, he was the paternal grandfather of Harry Potter[1]. Mr Potter went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he was sorted into Gryffindor House[2].

When Sirius Black ran away from home at age sixteen, Mr and Mrs Potter invited him to stay at their home during the holidays, and adopted him as a second son[1]. When he got a place of his own the following year, they ensured he came back for tea every Sunday[1].

By October 1981, Mr and Mrs Potter had died; their orphaned grandson Harry, whose parents had been slaughtered by Lord Voldemort, was sent to live with his only living relatives, Vernon and Petunia Dursley[3].
