He was the only son of Thomas Lyon-Bowes, 11th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and Mary Elizabeth Louisa Rodney Carpenter. He is the great grandfather of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Thomas died at the age of 32 in Honfleur, France; leaving his wife very little money to bring up their four surviving children.[3] His eldest son, Thomas, became the 12th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne in 1846. His second son, Claude, inherited the earldom in 1865.
