    Notes 
    • MICHAEL MALET OF ST. AUDRIES.

      Michael Malet was the son and heir of Baldwin Malet by his first wife, Joan, the daughter of John Tacle; he was born in 1511, and succeeded his father in 1533; he died in 1547.* He married Joan Stawell, of the Cothelstone family; by her he had issue:

      1. Richard Malet, born 7th September, 1541.
      2. Dorothy, married to John Wood. In the register at West Quantockshead it is noted: "1563, Jno. Wood gent, and Dorothy Malet were married Aug. 22."
      3. Mary, married Henry Worth of Devon, Esq. Devon Visitation, p. 316: "Henry Worth died Aug 3rd 1606, aged 72; there is a monument to him in the Church of Washfield, Devon" (Oliver).

      Michael Malet's widow, Joan, married John Frye of Wycroft, Devon.**

      Michael Malet, with his son Richard, are mentioned in the Star Chamber proceedings entered in the Trevelyan papers prior to A.D. 1558, published by the Camden Society, p. 128.

      Thomas Cappis versus Anthony Stawell, Michael and Richard Malet, William Trevelyan, and others [there are no dates entered], for assault, trespass, and driving away sheep, possibly a case of disputed property not uncommon in those days, in which lands lately belonging to the Church had passed to other owners. I find no notice of the judgment by the Star Chamber.

      Michael was succeeded by his eldest son Richard.


      * Inquest p.m. at Taunton on the death of Michael Malet Esq're, Oct'r 27th, 2nd, Edward VI (1548). He died Sep't 17th, 1547. Richard Malet his son and heir aged 7 the 27th Sept'r last.
