    George Fane was the eldest son of John Fane, eleventh Earl of Westmorland, and Lady Priscilla Anne Wellesley-Pole, daughter of the third Earl of Mornington, whose uncles were to become Marquess Wellesley and the Duke of Wellington. George succeeded to the courtesy title of Lord Berghersh in 1841 when his father succeeded to the Earldom of Westmorland. However, he predeceased his father, who was succeeded by his fourth son, Francis William Henry, in 1859.
