Voters in Somerset could end up with a Conservative brother and sister double act at Westminster next month.
In Cornwall, another baronial clan is swinging into action. Lady (Terrye) Teverson is standing for the Liberal Democrats in the new seat of Truro & Falmouth (having previously contested the old Falmouth & Camborne seat twice in the 90s).
Her husband, Lord (Robin) Teverson is a Liberal Democrat life peer and former MEP for West Plymouth & Cornwall.
None of this, though, matches the Election of the Three Feet in 1945.
In that year Isaac Foot stood for the Liberals in Tavistock, while his son John (also destined for the House of Lords) did likewise in Bodmin.
At the same time, John's brother Michael (the future Labour leader) was contesting Plymouth Devonport for Labour.
Faced with this embarrassment of Feet, the voters ultimately plumped for a one-legged solution.
Only Michael - the Left Foot, obviously - actually got elected.
The other known candidates in these seats (2010 rather than 1945) are:
North East Somerset
Dan Norris - Labour
Gail Coleshill - Liberal Democrat
Peter Sandell - UKIP
Michael Jay - Green Party
Somerton & Frome
David Heath - Liberal Democrat
