    Notes 
    • A Somerset knight with few interests in Devon, but he was a liveried by Edward, Earl of Devon 1384-5. He was frequently used in the government of Somerset: he was a commissioner of array there between 1377 and 1403 and a JP from 1400 to 1406. He had connections with others of the earl's affinity, and his son, Sir John Malet, married Joan, daughter of John Hille of the earl's following. Yet, in 1396, he was pardoned for not having answered changes of debt laid against him by the earl of Devon in respect to a sum of 33 6s. 8d. [2]

    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, p 35-36, appendices L1 - L9:

      BALDWIN MALET OF ENMORE AND DEANDON.*

      Baldwin, the son of John Malet and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John de Kingston, was at his father's death, being under age, placed under the guardianship of Margaret Beauchamp.** In Sir A.M.'s MSS. there are forty-seven extracts containing his name; most of these give the name only. Some few are of interest: one*** shows that Baldwin's wife Elizabeth was living in 1373; another,+ dated 3 Richard II, 1380, is an engagement entered into by Baldwin and Elizabeth his wife with John Hull,++ that their son and heir apparent, John, should marry Joan Hull, and setting apart for their residence and maintenance the manor of St. Audries and lands in Exeter. Elizabeth, Baldwin's first wife, was the daughter of Sir Thos. Trivet; by her he had issue:

      1. John Malet.
      2. Eleanor = Sir William Hody, Chief Baron. of the Exchequer.

      Baldwin married for the second wife Amicia, daughter of Richard Lyffe of Corypole, by whom he had issue:

      1. Hugh Malet.
      2. Phillipa = Thomas Martin of Athelhampton, Dorset.

      There is an extract from a deed of Baldwin's, date 1375,+++ purporting to have made over to John Trivet for his life the manor of Oake, and providing that after his death it should go to William Coker and his heirs.

      It appears that by this time the overlordship of Enmore had passed from the Beauchamps to the ancient family of Gournay, for in 1399# we find that Baldwin does homage to Matthew Gurney for Enemore, Sutton, and Oke. And in 1401## he does homage to "my very noble dame Alice Stury for Hethcombe in Blacksoll."

      Baldwin Malet, as appears from the Council Book in Bib. Cotton, Cleopatra, F III, was one of the knights summoned to the Great Council, the next day after the assumption of our Lady, at Westminster, 2 Henry IV, A.D. 1401.

      The earliest mention of Amicia Lyffe as his wife is in 1402,### and in 1426 she as his widow,@ makes over to trustees the manor of Corypole.

      Amicia Malet and Johanna Tilly,@ were the coheiresses of Richard Lyffe, from whom the Malets obtained the estate of Corypole, and quartered the arms of Lyffe and Valetort.


      * From this period I have the benefit of the Rev. Frederic Brown's M.S. notes, chiefly extracts from papers in the Prerogative Court.
