Fane was the fifth and youngest son of John Fane, 11th Earl of Westmorland, by Lady Priscilla Anne, daughter of William Wellesley-Pole, 3rd Earl of Mornington.[2] He was educated at Harrow and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was a member of the 'Apostles', chancellor's medallist in 1850 and graduated M.A. in 1851.[3] Between 1856 and 1858 he was secretary of legation at St. Petersburg and first secretary and acting chargé d'affaires at Paris from 1865 to 1867.[1]

In 1852 he issued Poems, and a translation of Heine in 1854.[1]

Fane married Lady Adine Eliza Anne, daughter of George Cowper, 6th Earl Cowper, in 1866. They had one son (who did not reach adulthood) and a daughter, Ethel Anne Priscilla, who married William Grenfell, 1st Baron Desborough. Lady Adine Fane died in October 1868, only a few months after the birth of her son. Fane only survived her by two years and died in 1870.[2]

He died at 29 Portman Square, London, on 19 April 1870.[4]
