on 12 February 1850. They had four children although their first son, John, died as a child. Ellen died aged 32 on 11 July 1857 at Portstewart, County Londonderry. Montagu remarried in London on 18 October 1862 to Elizabeth Wade (Holton, Suffolk, 15 May 1839 – London, 29 December 1908), daughter of William Wade of Holton, Suffolk, and had six more children. This second marriage scandalized society, since the former Betsy Wade had been a housemaid when Montagu met her.[9] Montagu died 6 May 1902[1] at 91 Queens Gate, South Kensington, London[10] and was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery.[11] He was survived by his wife, three children and one grandson.
