From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hon. Montagu Curzon (21 September 1846 – 1 September 1907) was a British soldier and Conservative politician.



Curzon was the eldest son of Richard Curzon-Howe, 1st Earl Howe, by his second wife Anne, daughter of Vice-Admiral Sir John Gore. George Curzon-Howe, 2nd Earl Howe, Richard Curzon-Howe, 3rd Earl Howe and the Hon. Sir Leicester Smyth were his elder half-brothers and the Hon. Sir Assheton Curzon-Howe his younger brother. Admiral Richard Howe, 1st Earl Howe was his great-grandfather.

Military and political career

Curzon was a Colonel in the Rifle Brigade. He was returned to Parliament for Leicestershire North in an 1883 by-election (caused by the death of Edwyn Sherard Burnaby), a seat he held until the constituency was abolished two years later.


Curzon married Esmé, daughter of Francis Horatio FitzRoy, in 1886. They had one son and one daughter. His daughter Mary married her first cousin, Francis Curzon, 5th Earl Howe. Curzon died in September 1907, aged 60. Esmé later remarried and died in May 1939.
