    I think that we got some hints and or teases that there was a relation (Or a deeper connection.) between him and Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch. Silver Age Magneto was a very different character, Claremont pretty much invented or reinvented Magneto.

As far as I recall the only "deep" connection between them during the Silver Age was that Wanda and Pietro felt indebted to Magneto for saving their lives from a bloodthirsty mob. But what Magneto did as boss of the Brotherhood (putting his minions recklessly at risk, having the Scarlet Witch perform as a kind of exotic dancer etc.) made them decide that the debt was paid in full and to strike out on their own (and later join the Avengers in that title's #16) after Magneto was banished to outer space by the Stranger in X-Men vol. 1 #11.

The fact that they were Magneto's children only came to light 14 years later, safely in the Bronze Age (in "The Yesterday Quest", Avengers vol. 1 #185-187, plotted by Mark Gruenwald and Steve Grant, drawn by Byrne, edited by Stern, the ID of Magda's husband revealed through UXM vol. 1 #125, plotted by Claremont and Byrne, edited by Stern).
