     Capt Richard Poole was mentioned in the will of Thomas Poole dated 3 November 1651.
     Administration of the estate of Thomas Poole was granted to Capt Richard Poole, on 9 June 1654 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury Thomas Poole the nynth day of June 1654 there issued forth l'res of ad'on to Richard Poole the n'rall and lawful sonne of Thomas Poole late of Shoreham in the countie of Sussex deced to adminster the goods and chattels and debtes of the said deceased hee beinge first sworn faithfullie to administer by order of court.      
Capt Richard Poole paid tax on 5 hearths in 1662 in Old Shoreham, Sussex, England. The third name on the list for the bailiwick of Old Shoreham wa Richard Poole, gen [Thomas crossed out] 5 hearths.
     In 1665, Richard Poole was appointed Captain of the "Drake," which was launched at Deptford in 1652-the third ship of war bearing that name -a ship which has had a long line of successors in the British Navy, … In the Admiralty records (Bill Office), under date 16th March, 1666, is a payment of £13 9s. 2d. " to Captain Richard Poole, Commander of His Majesty's ship the Drake, for so much disbursed in prest and conduct money, and other charges in presting 83 men to serve his Majesty."
While in command of this vessel, Richard Poole was remarkably successful in capturing a number of French ships in the Channel, immediately after the declaration of War against France and Holland; among them the "Frances " of Bordeaux, which he took in March, 1666, and brought into Shoreham Harbour.
     Richard died before 18 September 1678. We find no record of Captain Richard Poole's death, but from an Admiralty Bill, dated 30th October, 1678, it is apparent that he died some time between 15th April and 18th September in that year. Possibly he was killed in action. The Bill refers to a, contract, made 15th April, 1678, with Richard Poole, master and part-owner of " ye Richard and Thomas" (a small ship which seems to have been so named after himself and his elder brother). "According to Mr. Thomas Lewsley's certificate," so runs the document, " we pray you to pay unto Mr. Thomas Poole, brother and administrator to ye above said Richard Poole, deceased, for ye use of himself and ye rest of ye owners, for hire and freight of the vessel for ye space of five calendar months and four days, from 15th April, '78, which day she entered into his Majesty's service to ye 18th September following, ye day of her discharge, being employed for the use of a war, and to attend upon his Majesty's ship the . . . (word illegible) at £5 per tunn for each tunn of her burthen. Ditto the sum of £80 15s. 7d." There were two small abatements for stores and victualling, but the nett amount paid to Thomas Poole for the services of this ship appears to have amounted to £392 9s. 10d.
     The administration of his estate was granted to Thomas Poole on 30 September 1678 at PCC. On 30 Sep 1678 a Commission issued forth to Thomas Poole the natural and lawful brother of Richard Poole, late of Shoreham, Sussex deceased to administer his goods, chattles & debts.
However Thomas had died in 1672, so a date must be wrong.
