Facts and Events
The connection to the Brigend Montgomeries is doubtful. The later is a fairly well researched and documented lineage whose founder, William Montgomery, came to America in the first quarter of the 18th century, settling near his fatherinlaw John Burnett in Monmouth County. Burnett was one of the New Jersey Proprietors. William had a son Alexander, but he is listed in the family history with no further information about his history. Its possible that he went to New Castle county, but evidence of that is needed to prove this connection. There were several "Alexander Montgomeries" in the New Castle area in the 1740's and 1750's, as shown by the Delaware Calendar of Wills. They are presumably related, perhaps father and son. In anycase, if the parents current listed for this Alexander are correct, then its unlikely that he is of the Brigend Montgomeries. William's father is identified as John Montgomery of Brigend, Argyleshire, Scotland. Additional work needed.
