Frank Douglas-Pennant, 6th Lord Penrhyn

 

 

 

 



Frank Douglas-Pennant, 5th Baron Penrhyn (21 November 1865 – 3 February 1967) was a British nobleman and Justice of the Peace for Northamptonshire.

 

Frank was the eldest son of the 1st Baron's second son Archibald Charles Henry Douglas-Pennant (1837-1884).

He attended Eton College and the RMC, Sandhurst and became an officer in the King's Royal Rifle Corps (KRRC), fighting in the Boer War.

 

Early in the First World War he was made Lieutenant Colonel of the KRRC's 10th (Service) Battalion.

 

His first marriage was on 25 April 1892 to Maud Eleonora Hardy, daughter of Colonel John Hardy, but they divorced in 1903. They had a son, Cyril, and two daughters, Bridget and Eileen.

 

His second was to Alice Nellie Cooper, daughter of Sir William Charles Cooper, 3rd Baronet Cooper of Woollahra. They had two sons, Malcolm and Nigel, and a daughter, Susan.

 

He succeeded as the 5th Baron Penrhyn of Llandegai, co. Carnavon [U.K., 1866] on 26 June 1949.

In 1949 the 4th Baron Penrhyn died without issue, leaving the direct male line from the 1st Baron extinct. Frank Douglas-Pennant thus succeeded to the barony. However, his eldest son, Cyril, predeceased him and so it was inherited by in 1969 by his second son, Malcolm.
