Are Mr. Boddy & Dr. Black related?

Do you think that Mr. Boddy and Dr. Black are related to each other? If so, what’s their relationship?

I like coinilius‘s idea of their relationship: Dr. Black and Sir Hugh Black are the same/Dr. Black is Boddy’s uncle.

Also something to note: In the UK, Physicians/Surgeons are sometimes referred as “Mr” as a honorary title. So Boddy could be Dr. Black, or at least be a doctor. ... -as-doctor ... -countries

As why Boddy would be called Black, I think it’s him being called by his family estate’s name. A “title” in short.

Ex. John Boddy, Lord Black of Tudor Close/ Being called “Doctor Black” after his profession.
Like Lord Edgware from Agatha Christie’s Lord Edgware Dies, his full title is George Alfred St Vincent Marsh, fourth Baron Edgware.
