A younger brother, Cuthbert Bellot, became Archdeacon of Chester, whilst he also helped secure an advantageous marriage for his nephew, Edward Bellot with Amy Grosvenor, whose grandson was created a baronet.
Bellot was consecrated as bishop of Bangor in 1585, and was translated in 1595 to the see of Chester. He died at Whitsuntide the following year at the Bishop's Palace, Chester being buried at Bersham, Denbighshire (now Clwyd).
