The Montgomerys and Their Descendants
A genealogical history of the Montgomery Family originally published in 1903
"It is supposed that there had existed at Eglinton Castle, an account of the Montgomery family in Scotland, which was destroyed when that old pile was burnt by the Cunninghams in 1528. Therefore the work of William Montgomery, written between 1698 and 1704, is the earliest existing attempt to illustrate the family history, and it is especially valuable because treating of persons who came within the reach of his personal knowledge and events that had occurred during the period of his own life. Since these memoirs were written the compilations in this book have been made, intended by their authors chiefly to illustrate the genealogical history of the Montgomerys."
