The Runciman family produced a father and son who sat in the House of Lords simultaneously, the father as a baron, the son as a viscount. Both were prominent government ministers, and both were peers of first creation. The first Viscountess, Hilda Runciman, was an MP in her own right briefly. Her younger son was the historian Steven Runciman, and her grandson Garry Runciman, husband of Ruth Runciman.
