    Earl Of Salisbury
    The 1st Earl of Salisbury of the second (1137) creation was the 3rd Lord (Baron) Montagu, a leading diplomat and military man under Edward III during the early stages of the Hundred Years War (he was made Marshal of England for life in 1338).
    WILLIAM (DE MONTAGU), LORD MONTAGU, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, of William, 2nd LORD MONTAGU (under the writ of 29 December 1299), by Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Piers DE MONTFORTof Beaudesert, co. Warwick, by Maud, daughter and heir of Matthew DE LA MARE, was born at Cassington, Oxon, and was aged 17-18 in May 1320, having succeeded his father, 18 October 1319. In September 1325 he was going overseas with the King, being then presumably the King's yeoman. Knighted in 1326. Summoned for service in Scotland 1327. In May 1329 he attended the King to do homage at Amiens, and in June began his successful service as a diplomatist. In July following he had a grant in consideration of labours daily endured by him, dwelling at the King's side. He was prime mover in the seizure of Mortimer, 1330, and was summoned to Parliament as LORD MONTAGU, 18 February 1331. In April 1331 he accompanied the King on his short secret journey to France; in September he held a great tournament in 'Chepe.' One of the keepers of Somerset 1332, under the Act of 6 Edward III, and later commissioner of the peace. In that year he became lord of Lundy Island by purchase. In 1333 he was in command of the siege of Berwick. From March 1333/4 to May 1337 he was joint keeper, with Henry de Ferrers, of the Channel Islands. He was with the King in Scotland, 1335 and 1336. In January 1336/7 appointed Admiral from Thames' mouth westwards. On 16 March he was created in Parliament EARL OF SALISBURY. In October he was appointed joint commander in Scotland, and a commissioner to treat for a peace; in December sole commissioner to deal with John of the Isles for a treaty. He accompanied the King to Flanders, July 1338; on 20 September, at Antwerp, he was made Marshal of England for life. He was largely responsible for the negotiations, diplomatic and financial, with England's possible allies and supporters, in 1338-39, including the pawning of the royal crowns. In September 1339 a practical measure of relief, for which the Earl had long pressed, was granted to debtors of under 10 to the Exchequer, to persons sued for escapes of prisoners, &c. In December of that year he remained as hostage to the Duke of Lorraine, while the King returned to England. Soon after Easter, 1340, he and the Earl of Suffolk, in a too adventurous pursuit of the French, were taken prisoners inside the gate of Lille. In August 1343 he went, with the Earl of Derby, on an embassy to Castile, where he is said to have fought the Moors. King of Man 1333-1344 Sir William de Montagu (dsp & vp 6 Aug 1382, accidentally killed jousting in the lists at Windsor, allegedly by his own father), only son of the 2nd Earl of Salisbury of the March 1336/7 creation.He was the 3rd baron of Montacute; lst Earl of Salisbury. He was Earl Marshal of England. He was a friend and companion of Prince, and then King Edward III. He helped Edward III stage a coup and depose Roger Mortimer & Queen Isabella in 1330.

    The 2nd Earl of this creation fought at Crecy and Poitiers and was a founder of the Knight of the Garter, outliving all his fellow first-generation KG's. He also went through a form of marriage and subsequently cohabited as husband with Joan "The Fair Maid of Kent". [Burke's Peerage]
