They're becoming rare because of the fact the the name was anglicised by an imperialistic nation to lazy to learn the history of its subjects ..! Many traditional Irish names were dragged into the montagu/Montague family tree through the ignorance of the English and their lack of understanding of cultures they are dilly ting through they're imperialism. The amazing paradox of a nation trusting the judgement of the bethrined yet overthrowing them as suited still hasn't occurred to these people so the effects of their historical elitism probably never will either. If your curious read read over the curriculum for their history lessons and note the lack of reference to where they went wrong in educating the savages of foreign nations, and the divides that those mistakes have left behind..! A nation of gullible fools
I believe it's Basque.
My grandmother was from Asturias...she was a Montes, which is related to the Montague name. We had relatives in Basque country.
It seems that Montagu's spelt without an "e" are becoming increasingly rare these days. They have always been rare :-)
haha ironically i try to look for montagu on this site and nothing comes up and then when i look at the variant of montague spelt with an "e" i find it... It seems that Montagu's spelt without an "e" are becoming increasingly rare these days.
I am having trouble trying to find anything on my husbands grandfather Peter John Montague. As far as I know according to a 1930 census he was divorced from his wife Sadie/Sarah. They had 3 children Sadie/Sarah, James, and Catherine/Betty in the Philadelphia area. My husbands parents are both dead, so can't ask them for information. Had to send to Washington for copy of husbands Dad's social security form to even find out grandfathers name. The census claimed he was from an Irish free state. We know nothing about this man. I could use any help. We don't know anything about him except what I have written.

I come from a long line of Peter Montague's. have you tried www.montaguemillennium.com or The History and Genealogy of Peter Montague of Nansemond and Lancaster Counties, Virginia, and His Descendants, 1621-1894
I totally made a typo in my last name XD
I have no idea how to track back my family. My dad is 100% German and so is that whole side if the family, then on my mother's side they're all Norwegian.
Tom - it is only inaccurate in minor ways.. I have the family tree going back to 1040 - the most obvious is the spelling (original) of Montagu is without the "e" - the "e" was added as a result of a family split between Catholic and Protestant. Warwick Montagu.
The Celts all came from France anyway, Tom.
actually they came from western spain.
Northwestern. Galicia, Asturias and Pais Vasco.
My great grandfather has a German first name of Janus and the last name Montague.
