Married to Elizabeth, dau. of Sir Thomas Gresley and Anne Ferrers. He was amongst those knighted at the battle of Blackheath in 1497 [William Shaw, The knights of England, v.2 p.29]. In 1505 he was
entrusted with William Blount, lord Mountjoye with the keeping of Hampnes
Castle in France.
[CCR v 11 Henry VII 1500-1509 ; no.226]. In 1508 and 1513 in his will he made provision of property for his two younger brothers as it was apparent that he would leave no male heir. His feoffees included Sir John Aston, Henry Sacheveral, Ralph Delves, William and John Gresley and Ralph Leeke. He died in 1513 and his male heir under entail of the estates was his brother
Ralph. Elizabeth remarried Sir John Giffard of Chillington and in 1515 they brought a suit against Ralph Montgomery for the next presentation to Cubley church. During the suit evidence was given that Sir John Montgomery had enfeoffed Edward, Lord Hastings and others in the manor and the feoffees had regranted to Sir John and Eliz his wife and heirs male of the body of Sir John. Eliz claimed to hold Cubley and the advowson for her life. The verdict was in favour of Elizabeth and Sir John Giffard. A pedigree was given with the suit showing the Montgomery succession i.e. Walter - Nicholas I - Nicholas II - Nicholas III - Nicholas IV - John [The Genealogist v.20 p.161]. Ralph died without issue in 1517 leaving his nieces, Sir John's daughters, as coheirs.
