Montagu, Sir George, British admiral, was born in 1750, entered the navy in 1763, and became a captain in 1773. He assisted at Rodney's relief of Gibraltar, and in the capture of the Caraccas convoy. He was made a rear-admiral in 1794. From 1803 to 1809 he was commander-in-chief at Portsmouth, and, during that important period, by his energy and resource contributed greatly to keeping the fleets in serviceable condition. He died an Admiral of the Red in 1829.
