Since the twins call Tom Dudgeon's mother Ella Dudgeon Aunty and Tom calls Frank Farland Uncle Frank it is quite possible that the two neighbours are sister and brother or related by marriage. On the other hand it was commonplace for close family friends to be called "Uncle" and "Aunty" even when no blood or marriage relationship existed.
