Linfred of Stinchcombe (otherwise called Linfred the Potterer) was a 12th centurywizard and pioneering potioneer, credited with inventing many medicinal potions. He was founding the patriarch of the Potter family.
In the 12th century, Linfred lived in the village of Stinchcombe, Gloucestershire, where he had a reputation as an eccentric, absent-minded man. Nonetheless, his helpful nature and affability made him universally liked and his Muggle neighbors often came to him seeking remedies for their ailments. He readily brewed potions for them using ingredients from his garden.
