Viscount Dilhorne


Viscount Dilhorne

Viscount Dilhorne, of Greens Norton in the County of Northampton, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1964 for the lawyer, Conservative politician and former Lord Chancellor, Reginald Manningham-Buller, 1st Baron Dilhorne. He had already succeeded his father as fourth Baronet of Dilhorne and been created Baron Dilhorne, of Towcester in the County of Northampton, in 1962, also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. The Baronetcy, of Dilhorne in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 20 January 1866 for the first Viscount's great-grandfather Edward Manningham-Buller. He represented Staffordshire North and Stafford in Parliament. Manningham-Buller was the third son of Sir Francis Buller, 2nd Baronet, of Churston Court, whose eldest son, the third Baronet, was created Baron Churston in 1858. His grandson, the third Baronet, sat as a Conservative Member of Parliament for Kettering and Northampton. He was succeeded by his eldest son, the aforementioned fourth Baronet, who was elevated to the peerage as Viscount Dilhorne. As of 2010 the titles are held by the latter's son, the second Viscount, who succeeded in 1980. As a descendant of Sir Francis Buller, 2nd Baronet, of Churston Court, he is also in remainder to the baronetcy of Churston Court, a title held by his kinsman the Baron Churston.

Eliza Manningham-Buller, former Director general of MI5, is the second daughter of the first Viscount.
