A grandson of Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland, and nephew of Charles James Fox, he served as Lord Privy Seal between 1806 and 1807 in the Ministry of All the Talents headed by Lord Grenville. He served as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster between 1830 and 1834 and again between 1835 until his death in 1840, in the Whig administrations of Lord Grey and Lord Melbourne. He is also well known for introducing a bill in parliament which would have abolished the death penalty for the crime of stealing.
