It is unknown how Arthur is related to some of Samantha's other relatives (Hagatha, Enchantra, Grimalda). In the episode Endora Moves in for a Spell, Endora says she was an only child until Arthur was born. Since witches are immortal and live for thousands of years, it is possible that Samantha's aunts are many degrees removed from her.
