His paternal great-grandmother was Schönche Jeannette Rothschild (1771–1859), thus his paternal great-great-grandfather was Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744–1812), the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.[1] As a result, his paternal great-great-granduncles were Amschel Mayer Rothschild (1773–1855), Salomon Mayer von Rothschild (1774-1855), Nathan Mayer Rothschild (1777-1836), Carl Mayer von Rothschild (1788–1855), and James Mayer de Rothschild (1792-1868). His great-uncles, who owned plantations in Ceylon with his grandfather, were Maurice Benedict de Worms (1805-1867) and Gabriel Benedict de Worms (1802-1881). His paternal uncle was Henry de Worms, 1st Baron Pirbright (1840-1903).[1]

Adult life[edit] He was a Fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society and the Royal Society of Literature.[1]

He became 3rd Baron de Worms in 1902, but renounced his aristocratic title in 1920.[1][3]
