Tollemache was the eldest son of John Jervis Tollemache, 1st Baron Tollemache, and his first wife Georgina Louisa Best. He was elected to the House of Commons for Cheshire West in 1868 (succeeding his father), a constituency he represented until 1885. In 1890 he succeeded his father as second Baron Tollemache and took his seat in the House of Lords.
Lord Tollemache married twice, and left four sons and two daughters by his first wife.
His eldest son, Hon. Lyonel Plantagenet Tollemache (1860–1902) died in August 1902 after he fainted while taking a swim. He was married to Lady Blanche Sybil King (1862–1923), only daughter and heiress of Robert King, 7th Earl of Kingston, and left two sons.
Lord Tollemache died in December 1904, aged 72, and was succeeded in the barony by his grandson Bentley Lyonel John Tollemache.
