Toujours Pur, is the family motto of the Most Ancient and Noble House of Black. Toujours pur is Latin and translates to Always Pure.
A spicific explaination of what exactly always is pure has never been given but it doesn't take much to figure out that it referes to purity of blood
since the Black Family are known supporters of Blood Supremacy. Of course not all Black family members buy into this same view and generally get disowned for it.
Most known of these 'white sheep' in the Black family are Sirius Black III, his cousin Andromeda Tonks née Black, Isla Hitchens née Black, Cedrella Weasley née Black,
Phineas Black (for supporting muggle rights) and Marius Black (who was a squib).
Personally, with Black family members like Sirius Black III in mind, I'd like to think that Toujours Pur refers to being pure of heart. Suddenly makes it sound a whole lot less aweful doesnt it?
The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black was one of the largest, oldest and wealthiest pure-blooded wizarding families in Britain,
and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. Many wizarding families in Britain are distantly related to the House of Black.
Like the Malfoy and Lestrange families, the House of Black is synonymous with elevated status and wealth.
The Black family tree is displayed in the drawing room of the family home at 12 Grimmauld Place in London, England on an intricate tapestry,
as an ornate mural. It starts in the Middle Ages and shows the dominant line of the family up to the present day.
The most notable family members as found in the story and on the family tapestry are the following: Alexia Walkin Black, Alphard Black, Andromeda Tonks née Black, Arcturus Black I, Arcturus Black II, Arcturus Black III, Bellatrix Lestrange née Black, Belvina Burke née Black, Callidora Longbottom née Black, Cassiopeia Black, Cedrella Weasley née Black, Charis Crouch née Black, Cygnus Black I, Cygnus Black II, Cygnus Black III, Dorea Potter née Black, Eduardus Limette Black, Elladora Black, Hester Black, Isla Hitchens née Black, Licorus Black, Lucretia Prewett née Black, Lycoris Black, Marius Black, Misapinoa Blishwick née Black, Narcissa Malfoy née Black, Orion Black, Phineas Nigellus Black, Phineas Black, Pollux Black, Phoebe Black, Regulus Black I, Regulus Black II, Sirius Black I, Sirius Black II, Sirius Black III and Walburga Black.
