Hi Bluesue,
I've just started researching my children's ancestry on their father's side, and have discoverd that their Great x3 grandfather, Rev 'Sir' George William Cox (as he is described on al the books he wrote!) claimed Sir Richard's baronetcy when it became extinct in 1877 - I have no idea whether his claim was successful anywhere other than in his own head, although I'm going to find out.
Your post was very helpful with relation to Sir Richard and his immediate descendents, do you know of anyone who his reasearching further down the family tree?
