  • Notes  Census:
    • James had taken over the farm at East Browns, Langtree Parish. He had 330 acres and employed 4 Ag Labs and 3 boys. His wife Caroline was born in Horwood, just outside of Barnstaple, Devon. Two children were mentioned, Mary, 2 and Caroline 10 months. They had a visitor, Priscilla Sanford, Dress Maker, from Shebbear.
    • In 1869, in the North Devon Journal, James Mallett offers livestock for sale, and the owner of his farms, John Darke, Little Marland, Petrockstowe, offers these farms for lease. The farms are described as "Browns, Langaton, and Putshole". This must be when James moves to Cloister Hall. These 3 farms must be the ones occupied by Humphrey before James.

      On July 20 1876 a poacher named Thos. Labbett was caught on land occupied by James Mallett.
    • James was described as a "Farmer of 450 acres employing 7 men and 2 boys". James's older brother John was living with them, unmarried, occupation Iron Monger.
    • Cloister hall is very likely the "estate of 1000 acres" described by Edith McCracken. She visited England before she was married in 1895, and "found a James living on the farm". According to the history of Frithelstock Priory, the manor was "about 1000 acres of which the monks farmed 500". The priory was taken from the church in the time of Henry the VIII, and was held by tenant farmers from that time until 1957, when it was sold, along with many other farms in the area by the Clinton Estate.
