He was the grandson of Hugh Montgomery, known as one of the "founding fathers" of the Ulster Scots, who was raised to the Peerage of Ireland as Viscount Montgomery, of the Great Ardes, in 1622. The fourth Earl represented Antrim Borough in the Irish House of Commons. The titles became extinct on the death of the fifth Earl in 1757.
