    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, pp 43-44, appendices P1-P2:


      Hugh Malet, the second son of William Malet and his wife Alice, in consequence of the death of his elder brother Thomas, succeeded his father in the estates. He married Isabel, daughter of Thomas Michell of Gurney Street, Cannington, and his wife Isabel. In Sir William Pole's collections there are three entries of his name in 1527 and 1537, but nothing of interest. By Isabel he had issue nine children; he died in 1541:

      1. Thomas Malet, died in 1541, before his father.
      2. Richard Malet, born in 1523.
      3. William Malet.
      4. Barnabas Malet.
      5. Joan, married to John Danvers.
      6. Mary, married to . . . Sturges.
      7. Elizabeth, married to Thomas Ivy of West Kingston, Wilts.
      8. Agatha, married to John Payne of Hutton, Somerset.
      9. Dorothy, married to Robert Maye of Charter House Mendip, had nine children.

      The inquest post-mortem on Hugh Malet, held 32 and 33 Henry VIII, A.D. 1541-2,* states that Thomas Malet, his son, died November 30th, 1541; that Hugh Malet died in 1541, and that his son and heir, Richard, was aged eighteen at the time of his father's death.

      Isabel Malet's mother, Isabel Michell, married for her second husband John Fitzjames of Redlynch, Somerset, the father by . . . . Bluet of Sir John Fitzjames, Chief Justice of the King's Bench; we are indebted to the Rev. F. Brown for the extracts from her will.**
