  • Name George SYDENHAM 
    Born Est 1543  Chilsworthy, Cornwall, England Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • His place of birth is given simply as "Chilworthy" in "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, but there appears to be no place by that name today (2005). There are however two "Chilsworthys", one in Devon, the other in Cornwall, not very far apart. The one in Cornwall was chosen because there is a town called "Sydenham Damerel" very near to it, perhaps connected with George's family.

    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, pp 41-43:


      William Malet, the eldest son of Thomas Malet, probably by his first wife, Joan, the daughter of Sir William Wadham, inherited Enmore and the chief part of his father's property, West Quantockshead (St. Audries) having been left by will to his younger brother Baldwin. He was born about 1470; his latest deed extant is dated in 1506, when as lord of the manor of North Wraxall, Wilts, in rights of his wife, he presented to a Chauntry there.* The inquest post-mortem, according to Collinson,** was held at Bridgwater on the 26th October, 2 Henry VIII (A.D. 1511).

      He married Alice, the daughter of Thomas and Alice Young, of Easton, in Gordano, Somerset, by whom he had six children:

      1. Thomas Malet, o.s.p.
      2. Hugh Malet, his heir.
      3. Richard.
      4. William.
      5. Joan, married to John Verney.
      6. Jane, married to Thomas Warre of Hestercombe, who by her, as stated by Collinson, had issue Richard, John, William, Henry, Thomas, Edward; Johanna, married to Thomas Michell of Cannington; Mary, married to George Sydenham of Chilworthy.

      William Malet's wife, Alice, died in 1505.

      There are five entries in Sir W. Pole's MSS., but none of particular interest, except, perhaps, for the names of the trustees, to whom at different times he made over his manors of Oke and Lydeard Malet or Punchardon. They are John Boucher, Lord Fitzwarren, Amyas Paulet, Nicholas Wadham, Giles Hill, John Brent, John Fitzjames, John Brook, Baldwin Malet, Richard Warre, William Hody, Thomas Henning; with witnesses, John Trevilian, John Sydenham of Brimpton, and John Sydenham of Orchard. Collinson states that it was found at the inquest held on the 26th October, 1511, 2 Henry VIII, that he held the manor of Sutton Malet of Sir Giles Strangways. He died on the 7th September in that year.
