George Montagu, 9th Earl of Sandwich
George Charles Montagu, 9th Earl of Sandwich (29 December 1874 – 15 June 1962), known as George Montagu until 1916, was a British Conservative politician.
Sandwich was the son of Rear-Admiral the Hon. Victor Alexander Montagu, second son of John Montagu, 7th Earl of Sandwich. His mother was Lady Agneta Harriet, daughter of Charles Yorke, 4th Earl of Hardwicke. He was Assistant Private Secretary to the Board of Trade from 1898 to 1900. The latter year he was returned to Parliament for Huntingdon, a seat he held until 1906. In 1916 Sandwich succeeded his uncle in the earldom and entered the House of Lords. He later served as Lord-Lieutenant of Huntingdonshire between 1922 and 1946.
Lord Sandwich married Alberta, daughter of William Sturges, of New York City, in 1905. He died in June 1962, aged 87, and was succeeded in the earldom by his eldest son Victor, who was also a Conservative politician.
