Coates Family, Kildare

Classification: Query
Surnames: Aylmer Coates
I am trying to research my family of Coates. I have gone back as far as 1812 to my great, great, great grandfather, Captain Richard Aylmer Coates. He married Frances Plunkett in 1812 and apparently was in the 49th Regiment. I have found references to a Richard Aylmer Coates in the London Gazette's military announcements but have not yet found a military record for him. Family lore says that we were connected to the Coates' of Knockanally House and that an ancestor went off with the maid who had red hair so he was disinherited! It's possible a Coates married an Aylmer as the Aylmer's owned most of the land in the area and sold the land to the Coates' who built Knockanally. I wanted to know if anyone came across Richard Aylmer Coates or Frances Plunkett or any other information that might help. Thanks
