Aunt Maria, whose name is Maria Laker, is the titular character in the novel Black Maria (which has also been published under the title Aunt Maria in some places).

Aunt Maria is a sinister old lady who lives -- and reigns -- in Cranbury-on-Sea?. Her house is not numbered, but her nephew Chris notices that no matter how you calculate the house numbers on her street, hers is number thirteen. She has a live-in companion named Lavinia, and a coterie of friends, chief among whom is her next-door-neighbor Elaine Blackwell.

Aunt Maria had a daughter named Naomi. She is aunt, by marriage, to Greg Laker, the father of Mig and Chris Laker.

She is also a Real Person.
