I'm not much for genealogy, but I'm confused by Montagu's relation to Henry Fielding. It says here that she's his niece, but is she possibly his aunt? He used her for literary connections, and according to his entry, he's born in 1707 vs her 1689. I guess it's technically possible she's his niece? But could someone explain their genealogy? My brief google research has not given much insight. Lydgate 17:08, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Montague Street, Brooklyn Heights[edit]

I've read somewhere that Montague Street in Brooklyn is named for Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Is that correct? If so, it might be mentioned in the main entry. Jim Lacey (talk) 13:33, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Place of birth[edit]

While this article states that Lady Mary Wortley Montagu was born in London the article on Thoresby Hall claim Lady Mary Wortley Montagu as being born there.

Shakespeare reference[edit]

I've removed this, as it is simply impossible: her ancestors weren't Montagus (it was her married name). --NellieBlyMobile (talk) 00:26, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Montagu or Montague ??[edit]
