A member of the prominent Guinness brewing family, he was the third son of Edward Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh, third son of Sir Benjamin Guinness, 1st Baronet, of Ashford. His son, the second Baron, was a poet and novelist, and the first husband of Diana Mitford, one of the famous Mitford sisters. As of 2014 the title is held by their eldest son, the third Baron, who succeeded in 1992.
