1 James Vanderboom is the nephew of William Vanderboom, but his parentage is unspecified. It is possible he is either the son of Aldous Vanderboom or an unnamed third sibling to the brothers.

2 Mary is only a Vanderboom by marriage but her maiden name is unknown.

3 Frank's father (a flower) is not technically a Vanderboom due to not being married to Emma.

  • William most likely has no children of his own, as his nephew James is named as his only heir after his death. This also suggests that William may be older than Aldous, as he was the original owner of the house.
