Mountain Family History

This ancient surname is of French origins, and it has 'invaded' the British Isles at least twice. It is the modern spelling form of the Norman 'de la Montagne', and as such is believed to have been born by several of the followers of William the Conqueror in 1066. It later came a second time, if considerably more peaceably, being born by 17th century Huguenot refugees after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. The Irish connection came in 1170 when the name travelled to there in the army of Strongbow, Earl of Pembroke, when he 'assisted' the King of Leinster in his attempt to secure a united Ireland.
