Best Answer

No. His father, Valentine Fleming, was born a year after Alexander Fleming was. Plus, Ian is of British nationality while Alexander is of Scottish nationality. However, Valentine's father was named Robert Fleming, and surprisingly enough Alexander named his son Robert also.

Was Ian Fleming related to Alexander Fleming?

The short answer is "No" - Ian Fleming was not related to Alexander Fleming. There was, ironically, some contact between the two families when Peter Fleming (Ian's older brother) took up residence in the same apartment block which also housed Alexander Fleming, leading to great confusion on the part of the postal delivery authorities!! Peter and Ian Fleming were two of four brothers (their father was Val (Valentine) Fleming, who died as a result of wounds sustained in World War I). Their grandfather was Robert Fleming, who made the family fortune through the banking industry.
