George Montaigne (Mountain) (1569–1628) was an English bishop.


He graduated B.A. from Queens' College, Cambridge in 1590, and M.A. in 1593.[1] In 1597 he was chaplain to Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, on his expedition against Cadiz. He became rector of Great Cressingham in 1602. He was Gresham College Professor of Divinity in 1607, and in 1608 Master of the Savoy and chaplain to James I of England.[2]

He was Dean of Westminster in 1610. He was then Bishop of Lincoln in 1617, Bishop of London in 1621, and Bishop of Durham in 1627. He was Archbishop of York from July to October 1628.[2] He was one of the Arminian group of bishops who arose in opposition to the general Calvinism that prevailed in the Church of England in the early seventeenth century. One manifestation of his views were prosecutions in his London diocese for the disrespectful wearing of hats in services.[3]
