Following family tradition, he attended Eton College and went up to Christ Church at the University of Oxford where he read for a BA, taking the degree in 1900. On 25 August 1914, he married the Lady Enid Victoria Rachel Fane, daughter of Anthony Mildmay Julian Fane, 13th Earl of Westmorland and Sybil Fane, Countess of Westmorland. Upon leaving university he began his career in the service of the 4th Battalion Durham Light Infantry, in which he held a captain's commission.
