Lets have a look at 1721–1723, John Montagu, 2nd Duke of Montagu

John Montagu, 2nd Duke of Montagu, KG GMB PC (1690 – 5 July 1749), styled Viscount Monthermer until 1705 and Marquess of Monthermer between 1705 and 1709.

He was a son of Ralph Montagu, 1st Duke of Montagu and his first wife Elizabeth Wriothesley. His maternal grandparents were Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton and Lady Elizabeth Leigh.

He went on the grand tour with Pierre Sylvestre. On 17 March 1705, John was married to Lady Mary Churchill, daughter of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough and Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough

On 23 October 1717, he was admitted a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1719, and was made Order of the Bath, a fellow of the Royal Society in 1725, and a Grand Master of the Premier Grand Lodge of England.

Yes you may have already guessed - He was an ancestor of Winston Churchill , the House of Marlborugh.
