<p><span style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);">Roger de Montgomerie, born in Normandy about 1030 during the reign of MacBeth, became a joint-Regent of that Dukedom when William the Conqueror invaded England. He was later rewarded with several English earldoms and the naming of Montgomeryshire in his honour. His descendant Robert, who died in 1177, was the first of this family to establish himself in Scotland. In 1489, Sir Alexander of this line became Lord Montgomerie. From him come the Montgomeries of Skelmorlie. The 2nd Lord was created Earl of Eglinton in 1508. Montgomery of Stanhope descends from a younger brother of the 1st Lord.</span><br></p>
