    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, pp 38-40, appendices N1-N3:


      Hugh was the second son of Baldwin Malet, but his first by his second wife, Amicia, the daughter of Richard Lyffe, of Corypole, and coheiress with her sister Johanna, the wife of Walter Tilly.

      In Sir A.M.'s MSS. there are seventeen extracts in which his name occurs, ranging from A.D. 1430 to 1485. He married Joan, the daughter of John Ronyon, of Bickfold, in the parish of Compton Martyn, in Somerset, by whom he had issue:

      1. Thomas, his eldest son and heir.
      2. William, from whom, I am told, the present family of Mallock, of Cockington, Com. Devon, claim descent,stating that he settled at Axmouth and married Agnes, the daughter of . . Pyne of that place.
      3. Margaret, married John Crewkerne.
      4. Joan, married Robert Brent of Cossington.

      The deed of 1430* is executed by William Hastings (who must have been the trustee), securing to Hugh Malet and others the reversion of the manor of Deandon after the demise of the widow of his half-brother John, and of his father Baldwin. A deed of 1466 appears to be a portion of the Somerset inquest after his death.** There is a deed of A.D. 1461*** by which Hugh vests in John Wadham the elder, William Ronyon, and others, for six years, on account of the marriage of one of his daughters, and after that time in seven other names, his manor of Lydiard Punchardon, in trust for Johanna, daughter of John Wadham, and wife of his son Thomas. The last entry of 1485 is "Johanna nuper uxor Hugonis Malet, 1mo Henry VII.

      There are other entries in which Hugh is styled Lord of Sutton Malet, Lord of Corypole, and Lord of Deandon, and as possessing the manor of Oke and property in the hundred of Cannington. His seal, Sir W. Pole writes, "has only a single escallop, as several others of the Malets had."
