Montgomery (Killee)

This family appear to have connections with the Grey Abbey, county Down family. Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland (1904) records George Montgomery succeeded to the estates of his half brother Wriothesley De la Rue at Killee, county Cork, in 1734. His great grandson also named George married Elizabeth Jane Carey heiress to Careysville and the Montgomerys inherited that property. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the Reverend William Quinn Montgomery owned land in the parish of Marshalstown, barony of Condons and Clangibbon. In the 1870s the Montgomerys owned 1,482 acres in county Cork.
