He was born on 29 November 1905 to Gordon Frederick Henry Charles Howard, 5th Earl of Effingham and Rosamond Margaret Hudson. He was educated at Lancing College and served in the Royal Artillery during World War II.
He succeeded his father as Earl of Effingham on 7 July 1946.
His first wife, Hungarian-born Maria Malvina Gertler was under suspicion by MI5 - and in fact was interned for three months in 1941 on the grounds that she was involved in the "preparation of acts prejudicial to the public safety or the defence of the realm" and held in Holloway prison. They were divorced in 1946.
He remarried in 1952 to Gladys Irene Freeman; they were divorced in 1971. His third wife was (Mabel) Suzanne Mingay Le Pen (1919-2008), whom he married in 1972. He had no children and was succeeded by his nephew, David Howard.
