      John Malet, the eldest son and heir of Thomas Malet and Elizabeth the daughter of Humphrey Colles of Barton, was a minor at the time when his father's will was proved by the executors in 1580-1.

      Sir John Malet married Mary, daughter of Sir John Popham, Chief Justice of England, by whom he had seven children:

      1. John Malet.
      2. Francis Malet.
      3. Thomas Malet, late of Shirehampton, Gloucestershire, died a bachelor; administration granted to John Malet, Esq., nephew and next-of-kin to deceased, October 7th, 1651.
      4. Ann, married Charles Trevanion, of Curryhanger, Com. Cornwall.
      5. Elizabeth, married Peter Specott, son of Sir John Specott of Thornbury, Devon, Knight, by Elizabeth Edgcumbe; he was at Exeter Coll., Oxon, 1613, and was buried at Thornbury, April 19th, 1655; in his will he bequeaths L.500 to his wife Elizabeth.
