Notes

General:
As a young man Montagu or Montacute distinguished himself in the war with France and then went to fight against the pagans in Prussia, probably on the expedition led by Henry Bolingbroke (the future Henry IV of England). Bolingbroke was to entrust his young son and heir, later Henry V, to the care of Sir John and his wife Margaret following the death of his wife Mary de Bohun. Lady Margaret cared for the young boy at a Montacute house in Welsh Bicknor near Monmouth until her death in 1395.

He was summoned to parliament in 1391 as Baron Montagu. Montagu was a favourite of the King during the early years of the reign of Richard II. He accompanied the King during his expeditions to Ireland in 1394 and 1395, and as a privy councillor was one of the principal advocates of the King's marriage to Isabella of Valois. During the trips to France associated with the marriage he met and encouraged Christine de Pisan whose son was educated in the Montacute household. Montacute was a prominent Lollard and was remonstrated by the King for this.

With the death of his mother around this time, John inherited the barony of Monthermer and its estates. In 1397 he became Earl of Salisbury on the death of his uncle and inherited Bisham Manor and other estates. He continued as one of the major aristocratic allies of Richard II helping to secure the fall of the Duke of Gloucester and the Earl of Warwick. He persuaded the King to spare the life of Warwick. He received a portion of the forfeited Warwick estates and in 1399 was made a Knight of the Garter.

Early in 1400 he went on a successful mission to France to prevent the proposed marriage of Henry Bolingbroke and a daughter of the Duke of Berry. In May, he again accompanied Richard II on an expedition to Ireland. When news reached them that Bolingbroke had returned to England, Montacute was sent to Wales to raise opposing forces. When these deserted, Montacute advised Richard to flee to Bordeaux. Instead Richard was imprisoned, Henry took the throne and, in October, Montacute was arrested along with many of Richard's former councillors and held in the Tower of London.

Montacute had to answer charges relating to the arrest and subsequent death of the Duke of Gloucester in 1397. Eventually he was released due to the intercession of Henry's sister Elizabeth, Countess of Huntingdon. Not long after his release, Montacute joined with the Earl of Huntingdon and others in the Epiphany Rising, a plot to kill Henry IV and restore Richard II. After the plot failed, he was caught at Cirencester and executed. His eldest son, Thomas - by Maud Francis daughter of London citizen, Adam Francis - eventually recovered the earldom, though the attainder against John Montacute was not reversed until the accession of Edward IV in 1461. 6
