The name of Montgomery derives from an ancient Norman family, who held the Castle of St. Foy de Montgomery near Lisieux, in France. Tradition asserts that the name can be traced back to a Roman commander called Gomericus.
Another ancestor, Roger de Mundegumbrie was related to William the Conqueror and was granted lands in England by his kinsman.
