      SOURCES OF INFORMATION.

      Some years ago the Rev. Frederic Brown lent me his MSS., which, among much other information concerning the Malets of Somerset, contained abstracts of their wills in the Prerogative Court from the reign of Henry IV down to the last generation, and with the greatest kindness permitted me to take a copy. Shortly afterwards my brother Sir Alexander Malet entrusted to me the MSS. in his possession, most of which were extracts by Mr. G. Harbin from the MS. collections of Sir William Pole, a portion of which relating to Devonshire has since been published. On making over to me these MSS. he requested me to assort them and make such use of them as I could to put into chronological order all that they contained concerning our branch of the family.

      Mr. Freeman, in his Norman Conquest, in the notices of William Malet, had not only collected much information concerning him, but had shown how other particulars might possibly be found to elucidate his parentage and connexions; but for this I could not have endeavoured to clear up our early history.

      With these three chief sources of information I undertook the task, little anticipating either its difficulties or its delights. The advanced age of both my brother and myself have necessitated the strictest adhesion to the plan of elucidating the descent of the chief of the Somerset branches without endeavouring to discover the history of the individual members beyond what lay on the surface, but I hope that in the earlier portion I have been able, by following the clue given by Mr. Freeman, to clear up some doubtful points, and to throw light on the origin of the English branch of the Malets which may be of interest not only to the Somerset Malets, but also to the other families of the name, and to the descendants of those houses which through the long period from the Conquest have been connected with it.
