The Lestrange Family Tree by SonOfLestrange The Lestrange Family Tree by SonOfLestrange
UPDATE - 2018.11.19.

I made a few changes after I've seen The Crimes of Grindelwald. Very fortunately, this will be expanded, because now there is a released new family tree (you can go see it on HP wikia).

Just a few additions, before I make the expanded family tree: M. Lestrange's full name is Manon Lestrange. The inbreeding between Corvus III and Eglantine is confirmed. They are first cousins.
In the new version, there will be a new bloodline. Cyrille Lestrange's line, who is the brother of Corvus I. Unfortunately, it end with female members who cannot pass down the Lestrange name. (Funny enough, there is a male member of the family who is not married to anyone on that tree. Is he gay or what? :D)

And well, it is not spoiler now, that Credence Barebone is not actually a Lestrange. But it was so close...

UPDATE - 2018.11.21.

THE LESTRANGE FAMILY TREE

So I finally made it. Used all the old and new canon info I could find. A few interesting acts of inbreeding listed from the tree:

Corvus IV and Clarisse Tremblay are first cousins.

Corvus III and Eglantine are first cousins too.

The great-grandfather of Fulcran III and Quintilla’s second great-grandparents are the same. So they are second cousins, once removed.
Also, Nozéa is Quintilla’s daughter, but also her third cousin at the same time.

Compared to the Black family, the Lestranges are even more fanatical. On the Black family tree made by JKR, there is only one case of intermarriage. Sirius Black’s parents are second cousins, but that’s all.

UPDATE - 2018 12 26

Just tiny changes. Crosses under the dead female family members, because according to the original tree, the closed flowers represent the dead witches.

I'm kinda annoyed since I watched CoG and found out who Credence really is. Does everyone have to be related to everyone? This isn't Star Wars. But still, the revelation was quite shocking.

It didn't shock me as much when watching the movie, though I already had read all the spoilers before I got to the theatre.
And I can agree, it's pretty annoying. There's already a lot of theories on how this is possible. I hope this is not a retcon and JKR really have a good explanation.
Actually, for me, Credence's/Aurelius' character would be more interesting, if he really came from nothing. Like, you know, if he had this great power in him not because of a relation to a powerful family.

Yes, it would've been great if he had come out of nowhere, just an exceptionally gifted kid from the street. I don't like the tendency of everyone being related to someone important. Considering Dumbledore's family history, there's simply no place for Aurelius. Is he Albus' lost and forgotten son, born from a woman he had a one night stand with it? I'm really curious about how JKR is going to explain that. Of course, she's already know this from the very start (sarcasm). 
I haven't read any spoilers and I'm not following the theories on the internet, because I really don't have time for it. I hope that the next movie will bring some explanations.

It will be even more interesting if J.K realises the glaring error of her ways (first CC and now this Skywalker Syndrome stuff). What if Gellert is lying to Credence? We already have Nagini in here from the Harry Potter films, no need to bring another known name (surname).

These films are across the ocean from Britain, and yet using the old Harry Potter films as a crutch to rely on. 'Shock value' my arse :)

I don't think she'll ever realize. She's still making a lot of money with this franchise. On one hand, I can understand. She's the writer, after all. But really, she should stop this madness already.

Thanks and also you're welcome. I really wanted to do this for a long time now. I was glad that at least we got something similar to the Black family tree, even though we didn't get to know as much backstory of the Lestranges like the Blacks. But, there was still some pretty interesting plot with Leta, and her brother and father.

I shared your picture here: twitter.com/Fanbeasties/status… we're discussing Credence on it. Again, thanks for making this so clear!

I just read some of the comment of your twitter post. If you're interested how I got all this info, just ask. And for example, I can tell you about those lines between the names that are not continuous (but instead fragmented). Those lines means that the relation is not canon confirmed but is very possible. The other meaning is, that there is 100% relation, but we cannot know what kind of relation. For example, it's never confirmed in anywhere, if the Lestrange we see in Riddle's Horcrux memory is the father, uncle, or other relative of Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange.

Leta could easily be part poc without us blinking an eye if her pureblood family included purebloods who were black or other poc. No messing up or complicated explanation needed by JKR or the design team, there are probably lots of mixed-race families in the wizarding world, ESPECIALLY purebloods since they have to marry other purebloods and are all related. They don't seem to have the same problems with human races as in the Muggle world, it's the magic that counts with them.

Well, that's a good explanation. Maybe you're right and I'm just biased because in my head, the English Pure-blood families all appear as white. Even though I know that the Zabini, Shacklebolt and most likely the Shafiq family were poc. And those others in this family tree were Pureblood families from other countries. I suspect France, because the Lestrange family possibly has roots from France (family name etc). Also, Yusuf Kama, the brother-in-law of Credence's biological father will appear in the movie. In Paris (France). Okay, that's it for now :D

Also, Beaufort and Tremblay sounds like French names too. Rosier, too, is a family which is English and Pureblood, but has roots from France and associated with the Lestrange family.

Thanks for this work) I like to systematize everything that is possible, so this scheme seems very useful for me. 
In my headcanon version of Lestranges' tree Rodolphus & Rabastan's grandfather Rivellion had a sister, Renuara Lestrange, who married Claude Rosier, so Rosier family is the most related to Lestranges from all British Pureblood families. It's interesting)

Thank you, it was amazing to do it. I also like to systematize thing, and I love seeing family trees. I thought of doing your version of the Lestrange family too, I like your headcanons very much

This is well put together. I do hope we figure out more about Rodolphus' and Rabastan's side of the family tree.

There's a lot of imbreeding going on in that family. Seems to be a general pureblood problem. 

I too hope that we'll find out more about the Lestranges (and other families) in the upcoming movies. They have all the chances to tell us real interesting stories now, considering there are four more movies planned. :)

Yes, you're right. It seems to me they will play a bigger role in the upcoming movies. I could say that I'm happy with this, I suppose.

I approve of that, because I'm really interested in those families and their background. I'm looking forward to the upcoming movie.
