Just like my other question this has got nothing on it anywhere, where do the house elves originally come from?

  • If you’re asking how they were enslaved, that seems to be similar to your previous question (I assume some wizards used magic to do it). – Adamant Nov 7 '16 at 7:33

    @Adamant - In Harry Potter, wizards originate from Mars and Muggles from mushrooms. (At least according to Hambledon Quince, that is.) – ibid Nov 7 '16 at 7:50

    @Awesome Add that into your question. – Spencer Nov 7 '16 at 12:38

We don't know.

Rowling has not given us the backstory of how house-elves originated.
