    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, p 33-34, appendices I1, I2, I3:

      BALDWIN MALET OF ENMORE AND DEANDON.

      Baldwin Malet, the son of John Malet and Sibylla the daughter of Sir John St. Cleere, was born 12 Edward I, A.D. 1284; he married Hawise, or Avicia, daughter of Sir Simon Ralegh of Nettlecombe. The first mention of his name is a mere entry in Sir A.M.'s MSS., dated 1311, "Baldwin and Raymund Malet." The next entry of his name is in 1312,* an acknowledgement of homage due to and paid to Baldwin Malet by William Ridel. After this are in the same MS. many entries in which he is designated Baldwin Malet filius Johannis, Dominus de Durburgh, &c., and in the same MSS., vol. ii, p.5, "Baldwin possessed this estate [Deandon] and presented to the Church in the 3rd year of King Edward III, A.D.

      From Sir Wm. Pole's collections also we find** that Baldwin paid homage for Enmore to the Beauchamp of the time, the lineal successor of Mabel, the daughter of the last Baron William Malet, thus showing that this possession had been held by Baldwin's ancestor Fichet from the barons Malet, the successors of Roger de Corcelle, the owner of it at the time of the survey. There is yet another entry,*** the contract between Baldwin Malet and William de Whitfield and his wife Constance, that John the eldest son of Baldwin should marry their daughter.

      Baldwin,by his wife Hawise, or Avicia, had issue John and Baldwin.
