Oliver was born in Scotland in orlikely into a wizarding family.
From left to right: The Dursley family are Harry Potter's last living relatives. To ensure Harry's safety, Albus Dumbledore placed him in the Dursleys' care when he was a baby.
They are all Mugglesand despise all things related to magic — and anything out of the ordinary in general — and the Wizarding Worldespecially the Potters.
Vernon is described as a big, beefy man, the literal human embodiment of a walrus, with hardly any neck, and a large moustache. He is very much the head of his family, laying Harry wood most of the rules for Harry and doing most of the threatening, as well as spoiling Dudley.
He is also the director of a drill-making firm, Grunnings, and seems to be quite successful in his career.
He regularly reads the Daily Mail. Uncle Vernon and his wife have grudgingly raised Harry from an early age. He and Petunia were often hostile to Harry and never informed him about the magical world, including how his parents died; they Harry wood it away as a car crash.
In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secretshe uses one of his drills to put bars on Harry's window to keep him at 4 Privet Drive, but this plan is defeated by the Weasleys, who use a rope to grapple the bars off. Unlike Petunia, who proves to have a slight feeling of familial loyalty to Harry, Vernon seems to hate his nephew so much that in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenixhe is willing to throw him out of the house, knowing that doing so would put him in grave danger.
In fact, while discussing the Dementor attack with Harry, Vernon actually hopes aloud that Harry will receive the death penalty. Vernon also has an aversion to imagination, to any references to magic, and anything even slightly out of the ordinary; in the first book, when Harry mentions dreaming about a flying motorbike, Vernon responds by angrily bellowing that motorbikes do not fly, despite Harry's protests that it was only a dream.
When the Dursleys decide to leave Privet Drive to go into hiding, Vernon nearly shakes Harry's hand good-bye, though he ultimately cannot bring himself to do it. In the film version, he leaves without even a word to Harry although a deleted scene showing Dudley and Harry's reconciliation shows him saying "This is farewell".
Vernon is portrayed by Richard Griffiths in the film series. She is described as a bony woman with blonde hair that she passed down to her son, a "rather horsey" face and a very long neck, and spends most of her time spying on her neighbours. Her eyes are large and pale, quite unlike Lily's.
Her entire family, except Lily, is made up of Muggles. According to Petunia, her parents were proud of having a witch in the family, but Petunia saw her sister as a freak. In fact, Petunia was envious and resentful of Lily's magical abilities  and went so far as to write to Dumbledore, pleading to be allowed to enter Hogwarts.
Dumbledore gently denied her enrollment. Afterwards, Petunia grew bitter towards the school and, by extension, towards the wizarding world in general.
She had no contact with Lily after her marriage to James Potter and the birth of her nephew, Harry, though she did send the family a "horrible vase" that baby Harry broke while riding on a toy broom.From 29Oct: annual forestry work is taking place.
