@Warsaw Will – Oops, I sure did. Good catch, forgive. By the way, Orderic, son of Odelarius of Orleans, wrote that Roger stayed in Normandy, first going to England in December of the year 1067. On the other hand, Orderic confirms some of Roger's Montgomeris were at Hastings.

@Warsaw Will – Dig deep and you'll find the Montgomeries who were ancestors of James I of Scotland–James VI of England. This might explain why King James was so generous in granting Hugh the lands of Con O'Neil in Ulster? Montgomerys do have a long history, it' true.

Warsaw Will,

Archibald George, the 18th and current Earl of Eglinton, uses "Montgomerie" for surname, but A. G. is actually a "Seton" by pedigree, and not a bloodline Montgomerie. Google always thinks "Mountgomery" should conform to "Montgomery" but I protest. Then there's H. Noel Williams, who used "Montgommery" for Gabriel de Lorges, accidental slayer of Henri II, but for the life of me I cannot find where that spelling came from.
