A member of the Douglas family headed by the Earl of Morton, Penrhyn was the son of George Douglas-Pennant, 2nd Baron Penrhyn, and his first wife Pamela Blanche, daughter of Sir Charles Rushout, 2nd Baronet. He entered Parliament for Northamptonshire South in the 1895 general election, a seat he held until 1900, when he was replaced by his brother-in-law Edward FitzRoy.
Douglas-Pennant served in Buckinghamshire (Royal Bucks Hussars) Imperial Yeomanry, and was on 13 January 1902 promoted to Major.
Lord Penrhyn married the Hon. Blanche Georgiana, daughter of Charles FitzRoy, 3rd Baron Southampton, in 1887. Their eldest son the Hon. Alan George Sholton Douglas-Pennant was killed in the First World War. Penrhyn died in August 1927, aged 63, and was succeeded in the barony by his second and only surviving son Hugh. Lady Penrhyn died in November 1944.
