MONTES Family History

This surname is of Old French origin, but recorded throughout Northern Europe from the medieval period. There are many spellings including the French Mont, Monte, and Dumont, the Spanish Montes and Montez, and the English Mount, Mounter, and Munt. The earliest recordings are in England, this being the first country in Europe to have a central government and parliament. The word was introduced into England after the Norman Conquest of 1066, but however spelt and from whatever country, is a topographical name for someone who lived on or near a hill.
