Born in 1834, Vernon was the son of Thomas Taylor and Jessie Anna Letitia (née Foley) Vernon. In 1861, he married Lady Georgina Sophia Baillie-Hamilton, daughter of George and Georgina (née Markham) Baillie-Hamilton and they had at least three children: Auda Letitia (1862–1957); Bowater George Hamilton (1865–1940); and Herbert Edward (1867–1902).
Vernon was created a Baronet of Hanbury Hall in 1885, in recognition of the way he managed his estate during the Great Depression of British Agriculture. Upon his death in 1920, his son, Bowater George Hamilton Vernon, succeeded to the title, after which it became extinct.
