Last Edited=17 Feb 2011
     Richard Coote, 1st Earl of Bellomont was the son of Richard Coote, 1st Lord Coote, Baron of Coloony and Mary St. George.2 He married Catherine Nanfan, daughter of Bridges Nanfan and Catharine Hastings, on 19 August 1680.2 He died on 5 March 1700/1 at New York, U.S.A..1 His will was probated on 25 February 1704/5.2
     He succeeded to the title of 2nd Lord Coote, Baron of Coloony, co. Sligo [I., 1660] on 10 July 1683.2 In 1688 he was one on the first to join the Prince of Orange.2 He held the office of Governor of County Leitrim in 1689.2 He held the office of Treasurer to the Queen between 1689 and 1693.2 He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Droitwich between 1689 and 1695.2 In May 1689 he was attainted in his abscence by the Irish Parliament of King James II.2 He was created 1st Earl of Bellomont, in our Kingdom of Ireland [Ireland] on 2 November 1689, along with the preposterous grant of 77,000 acres of forfeited Irish lands.1 He held the office of Governor of Massachusetts in 1695.2 He held the office of Governor of New York between 1697 and 1701.2 His last will was dated 23 August 1697. The King had sent him to New York to put down the "freebooting". Unfortunately he was responsible for outfitting the veteran mariner William Kidd, who turned into 'Captain Kidd', who terrorised the merchants until his capture in 1698.2
     According to Cokayne "he was a man of eminently fair character, upright, courageous and endependent. Though a decided Whig he had disinguished himself by bringing before the Parliament at Westminster some tyrannical acts done by Whigs at Dublin."2
