Personal history

Penketh was born in 1865 to Richard Penketh and his birth was registered on the Isle of Man. He married Frances Laura Jane Holmes on 1 June 1910.

Rugby career

Penketh was a forward, and played in 19 games of the tour, scoring a solitary try, against Canterbury in New Zealand on 9 May 1888.

Other than the British Isles tour, he was not selected for any national side (the Isle of Man itself has never fielded a national team). He was the only Manxman to have been selected for the British Lions.
