Charles Allan Fyffe was born in 1845. He was the son of Lawrence Fyffe and Mary Ord.
He was educated at Christ's Hospital & Balliol College, Oxford. He graduated B.A. in 1868 and M.A. in 1870. Fyffe entered Lincoln's Inn on 10 June 1873. He later transferred to the Inner Temple (26 May 1876), where he was called to the bar on 10 May 1877. He joined the south-west circuit, but never practised.
Charles Allan Fyffe was married on 7 June 1883 to Henrietta Frances Arnaud, only child of Waynflete Arnaud Blagden of Holmbush Ashington, Sussex, by whom he left three children. In 1891 Fyffe was a prospective parliamentary candidate at Devizes. A charge of indecent conduct with a boy was brought to court against him at Wiltshire Assizes. It was thrown out, but Fyffe attempted suicide.
Fyffe did not recover from his suicide attempt, and died on 19 February 1892 at Laughton Hall, Edinburgh. He was buried at Buncton in Sussex.
