History:

The Coots are known from 1818 when Cornelius Coot came to Fort Duckburg. After taking over the fort from the fleeing Englishmen and scaring the Spanish attackers with popping popcorn, he founded the modern Duckburg. According to Don Rosa the Coots owned most of the land in the Duckburg area until most of it was bought by Scrooge McDuck in the early 20th century. Other important members of the family are; Clinton Coot who founded The Junior Woodchucks, Casey Coot who sold Scrooge McDuck the ground where he built his Money Bin, and Casey's sister Elvira "Grandma" Duck who's son Quackmore Duck was married to Scrooge McDuck's sister Hortense McDuck.
