Who is Richard Eliot?

Richard Eliot was the wayward second son of Sir John Eliot and Rhadigund Geddy.

Richard went to the University of Oxford at his father's suggestion, but did not fare well with academic life. He became embroiled at Oxford in various difficulties, which are mentioned without further detail in his father's writings. His father's friend, John Hampden, was asked to intervene on behalf of Sir John Eliot who was incarcerated in the Tower at the time.

Further problems ensued when Richard failed or refused to visit his father in the Tower. As a result, Richard seems to have disappeared compared to his siblings.

It is known that he went to the Low Countries under Sir Edward Howard around February 1632.

Richard died before 1669 when his brothers, John and Edward, argued over the inheritance of Richard's lands in Cornwall.
