Mallets of Dublin
Descendants of John Mallett the blacksmith of North Tawton (Devon) and his wife Jane Cunnett settled in Ireland during the early 1800's setting up a very successful iron foundry business. One of this family, Robert Mallet born in 1810 became one of Irelands most famous engineers and started the science of seismology (the study of earthquakes).
