This 2nd Lord Montagu seem to have had quite a conventional life.
From a web site concerned with "The Montagus of Boughton":
"It was perhaps just as well that in these tempestuous years his son, the 2nd Lord Montagu, was of a more retiring nature, content with peacefully managing his estates." His father, Edward, 1st Lord Mountagu of Boughton, died at home under house arrest and the 3rd Lord, Ralph, has quite a colorful history.


Q: How did a "Ralph" get in here?
A: "The elder brother, Edward [Yet another Edward], who had been Master of the Horse to the Duchess of York and then to Queen Catherine, was killed in naval action against the Dutch in 1665."

Remembering that SP is related to the Mountagus, and using the genealogical chart, and if (a big if) I interpret it correctly:

Edward's father's sister-in-law was Paulina Pepys (1581-1638) (who was also the mother of "my Lord"). Her grandfather was William of Cottenham, who was also SP's great-great-grandfather.
