Their son, Sir Alexander Fuller Acland Hood 1st Baron St. Audries, was Member of Parliament for West Somerset from 1892 to 1911. He was a member of Edward VII's Privy Council, and was made Lord St. Audries in 1911. He was born in St Andrews Scotland in 1853 and was educated at Eton, Balliol, Oxford & Sandhurst. He served with the Grenadier Guards in Egypt.
The battle cruiser Hood and her predecessors were named in honour of the Hood family that spawned several great naval leaders in the mid 1700s to early 1800s. The story of these particular men can be quite confusing. This is because the naval Hoods shared first names, held similar ranks and lived/served in the same era (frequently in the same ships or campaigns).
