Edward George Henry Montagu, 8th Earl of Sandwich (13 July 1839 – 26 June 1916), styled Viscount Hinchingbrooke until 1884, was a British peer, Conservative politician and author.

Montagu was the eldest son of John William Montagu, 7th Earl of Sandwich, and his wife Lady Mary Paget. Field Marshal Henry Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey, was his maternal grandfather. He was elected to the House of Commons for Huntingdon in 1876, a seat he held until 1884, when he succeeded his father in the earldom and took his seat in the House of Lords.

Lord Sandwich later served as Lord Lieutenant of Huntingdonshire between 1891 and 1916 and was also the author of five books. He was appointed a Knight of Grace of the Venerable Order of Saint John of Jerusalem in December 1901.

Lord Sandwich died unmarried in June 1916, aged 76, and was succeeded in the earldom by his nephew George Charles Montagu.
