Lynch was the only son of the Mesopotamian explorer Thomas Kerr Lynch, of a landed Irish family based at Partry House, County Mayo, and Harriet Taylor, the daughter of Colonel Robert Taylor, a British political resident at Baghdad, and his Armenian wife. He was educated at Eton College, the University of Heidelberg, and Trinity College, Cambridge. Although called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1887, he eschewed a career in law in favour of working for his family business, Lynch Brothers, a commercial firm founded in Baghdad in 1841 which exported goods from Britain to Mesopotamia. He became the company's chairman in 1896.
Lynch was admitted as a freeman of the Worshipful Company of Bowyers of the City of London in 1888.
He died of pneumonia at Calais in 1913.
