Background and educationEdit
Joynson-Hicks was the second son of former Home Secretary William Joynson-Hicks, 1st Viscount Brentford and Grace Lynn Joynson. He was educated at Sandroyd School then Winchester College and Trinity College, Oxford.
Joynson-Hicks later became a solicitor and a farmer. He served in the Second World War as a lieutenant-commander in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve. He sat as Member of Parliament (MP) for Chichester from 1942 to 1958 and served under Winston Churchill as Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Fuel and Power from 1951 to 1955. In 1956 he was created a Baronet, of Newick in the County of Sussex. On the death of his older brother, Richard Joynson-Hicks, 2nd Viscount Brentford, in 1958, he succeeded as Viscount Brentford. As a peer he was disqualified from sitting in the House of Commons, and a by-election was triggered.
Lord Brentford married Phyllis Allfey (d. 1979), daughter of Herbert Cyril Allfey, in 1931. They had one son. He died in 1983, aged 80, and was succeeded in his titles by his only child Crispin.
