Walter Montagu (died 1615) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons in 1614.
The House of Commons of England was the lower house of the Parliament of England from its development in the 14th century to the union of England and Scotland in 1707, when it was replaced by the House of Commons of Great Britain. In 1801, with the union of Great Britain and Ireland, that house was in turn replaced by the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.
Montagu was the second son of Sir Edward Montagu of Boughton. He was knighted on 11 May 1603. He became High Sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1608. In 1614, he was elected Member of Parliament for Monmouthshire in the Addled Parliament.
Monmouthshire was a county constituency of the House of Commons of Parliament of England from 1536 until 1707, of the Parliament of Great Britain from 1707 to 1801, and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 to 1885. It elected two Members of Parliament (MPs).
The Addled Parliament was the second Parliament of England of the reign of James I of England, which sat between 5 April and 7 June 1614. Its name alludes to its ineffectiveness: it lasted no more than eight weeks and failed to resolve the conflict between the King, who wished to raise money in the form of a 'Benevolence', a grant of £65,000 and the House of Commons. It was dissolved by the King, who observed grimly that he was "amazed that his ancestors should have allowed such an institution to come into existence". He probably intended to rule from then on without Parliament, and in fact did so for seven years.
Montagu died in 1615 and was buried at Llanmartin.
Montagu married Ann Morgan daughter of Henry Morgan of Pencoyd.
Pencoyd is a hamlet and civil parish in Herefordshire, England. The parish, which also includes the hamlet of Netherton and part of the hamlet of Harewood End, both to the east of Pencoyd hamlet, is approximately 8 miles (13 km) south from the city and county town of Hereford and 5 miles (8 km) west-northwest from the market town of Ross-on-Wye.
Sir Ralph Winwood was an English diplomat and statesman to the Jacobean court.
Baron Tredegar, of Tredegar in the County of Monmouth, was a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1859 for the Welsh politician Sir Charles Morgan, 3rd Baronet, who had earlier represented Brecon in Parliament. His eldest son, Charles Rodney Morgan, sat as Member of Parliament for Brecon, but predeceased his father. Lord Tredegar was therefore succeeded by his second son, the second Baron.
Colonel Frederick Courtenay Morgan was a British Army officer and Conservative politician.
