    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, pp 56-57, appendices Y1-Y3:


      Sir A.M.'s MSS. and the Rev. F. Brown's give us all the information that is necessary to trace the descent and family of John Malet of Ullegh (the more modern spelling seems to be Wolley). He was the second son of Baldwin Malet of St. Audries, the eldest of his issue by his second wife, Anne, the daughter of Thomas Hache and his wife Alice Basset; he inherited his mother's Wolley property.

      John Malet married Margaret, the daughter of Humphrey Moncke of Powdridge, Devon; by her he had issue eight children:

      1. Robert Malet, of Wolley, Devon. He married Elizabeth, daughter of George Rolle of Stevenston, by whom he had issue:

      1. John, o.s.p.
      2. Elizabeth, married Sir Arthur Acland; their son, Sir John Acland, married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Francis Vincent of Stoke d'Abernon, Surrey, knight and baronet, who died 1647.

      Robert Malet sold Fulford to William Peryan, Chief Baron of the Exchequer.

      2. Francis Malet, o.s.p.
      3. Malachi Malet, heir.
      4. Michael Malet.*
      5. Elizabeth.
      6. Zenobia, married to John St. Aubyn of St. Clewance, Cornwall (see Cornwall Visitation).
      7. Mary.
      8. Dorothy, married August 22nd, 1568, to John Wood, gent.

      The two sisters seem also to have married, as John Malet in his will names " my son-in-law, John Davell," and Michael Malet names in his will " my nephew and godson, Richard Ferrars, and my niece, Eleanor Halfe," so that all of them appear to have married, one of them twice.

      The Rev. F. Brown has summarised his will thus:-- "John Malet of Ullegh, in Beaford, Devon, Esq., no date. My sons Malachias and Michael, my three daughters Elizabeth, Mary, Dorothy, --my son-in-law, John Davell-- overseers, Sir Robert Denys, Kt., Thomas Moncke, and Thomas Malet. By Malachi Malet, Nov. 14, 1570."

      From the same source I take the summaries of two other wills;** they are of this period, but I cannot identify the persons named.

      * Michael Malet, Nov'r 29, 1636. Lands in Black Torrington, Sutcombe, and East Verworth, Devon, conveyed to my late brother Malachi Malet and his heirs; for the full assurance thereof I devise these lands to my nephew Thomas Malet, Serg't -at -law, he being the son and heir of my said late brother Malachi. To my nephew and godson Richard Ferrars £100. To my niece Eleanor Halfe £10. To my nephew and executor Thomas Malet all my goods, etc. To poor of Poyntingotn 40s.

      By Thomas Malet, March 21, 1650 - 1.

      **[Capell, 82.] Married at Bridgwater, October 22, 1571, Thomas Shercombe and Christian Holworthy.

      Christian Shercombe, widow, of Bridgwater, May 2, 1613. To my cousin Francis Malet £30. To Dorothy Malet, daughter of Francis Malet, £5. May 12, 1613.

      ** William Malet, Esq., West Quantockshead, 1644. Hugh Malet, of Sampford Arundel, April 14, 1673. April 12, 1673. My wife Mary--my sons Francis and John Malet; my daughter Elisabeth. Tenement in Moorlinch proved April 19, 1674.
