6601 This should perhaps be 1885. SMITH, Albert Reginald (I86)
 
6602 This the only "Margery" about the right age to have married in 1784. She was born in Endellion, which is also evidence that she is the correct person for this marriage, but in the Phillimore extract she is described as a "sojourner", which means she was not from Endellion but her family could have moved to another parish after her birth.

The Cornwall Family History Society gives the marriage date as Aug 12, 1786 rather than Jan 24, 1784 as given in the Phillimore extract. A couple of submissions to the IGI give the 1786 date too, so that date has been accepted here.

The Margery born in St Endellion has been combined with the Margery who had a baby in St Minver, next door, because there is no-one else to reasonably connect her to.

6603 This Thomas was combined with Thomas = Mary in Liskeard because his daughter's name was Agnes, the same as his mother, his age fits, and the rest of his family seems to have moved to Liskeard too. MALLETT, Thomas (I5760)
 
6604 This was a boarding school run by William Franklin. SNOOK, John Francis W (I874)
 
6605 This was a second marriage for Caroline. Her maiden name is unknown. Family F746

6607 This was how his name was recorded in the Civil Index. MALLETT, Brinley Joseph (I4283)
 
6608 This was the address given in two of the childrens' baptism records. The others simply said "Plymouth", but they were living at 40 New St in 1851, so they likely were at the same address all along. MALLETT, William (I10554)
 
6609 This was the date that probate was granted. The will was dated Dec of the previous year, so he probably died early in 1593. MALET, Thomas (I7395)
 
6610 This was the first marriage for both. Family F348
 
6611 This was the name Daniel used when he married Sara Ann Brown. In all other records his name was given as Daniel or Dan. NICHOLSON, Daniel (I11356)

6625 Thomas Coventry, 1st Baron Coventry (1578 - January 14, 1640), was a prominent English lawyer, politician, judge during the early 17th century.

Education & Early Legal Career
He entered Balliol College, Oxford, in 1592, and the Inner Temple in 1594, becoming bencher of the society in 1614, reader in 1616, and holding the office of treasurer from 1617 till 1621.
His exceptional legal abilities were rewarded early with official promotion. On November 16 1616 he was made recorder of London in spite of Bacon's opposition, who, although allowing him to be 'a well trained and an honest man,' objected that he was 'bred by my Lord Coke and seasoned in his ways.' On March 14 1617 he was appointed Solicitor General and was knighted.

Political & Judicial Career
He was returned for Droitwich to the parliament of 1621; and on January 11 in that year was made attorney-general. He took part in the proceedings against Bacon for corruption, and was manager for the Commons in the impeachment of Edward Floyd for insulting the elector and electress palatine.
On November 1 1625 he was made lord keeper of the great seal; in this capacity he delivered the king's reprimand to the Commons on March 9 1626, when he declared that 'liberty of counsel' alone belonged to them and not 'liberty of control.' On April 10 1628 he received the title of Baron Coventry of Aylesborough in Worcestershire. At the opening of parliament in 1628 he threatened that the king would use his prerogative if further thwarted in the matter of supplies. In the subsequent debates, however, while strongly supporting the king's prerogative against the claims of the parliament to executive power, he favoured a policy of moderation and compromise. He defended the right of the council in special circumstances to commit people to prison without showing cause, and to issue general warrants. He disapproved of the king's sudden dissolution of parliament, and agreed to the liberation on bail of the seven imprisoned members on condition of their giving security for their good behaviour.
He showed less subservience than Bacon to Buckingham, and his resistance to the latter's pretensions to the office of Lord High Constable greatly incensed the duke. Buckingham taunted Coventry with having gained his place by his favour; Coventry replied, 'Did I conceive I had my place by your favour, I would presently unmake myself by returning the seal to his Majesty.' After this defiance Buckingham's sudden death alone probably prevented Coventry's displacement.
He passed sentence of death on Lord Audley in 1631, drafted and enforced the proclamation of June 20 1632 ordering the country gentlemen to leave London, and in 1634 joined in Laud's attack on the earl of Portland for peculation. The same year, in an address to the judges, he supported the proposed levy of ship money on the inland as well as the maritime counties on the plea of the necessity of effectually arming, 'so that they might not be enforced to fight,' 'the wooden walls' being in his opinion 'the best walls of this kingdom.'
In the Star Chamber Coventry was one of Lilburne's judges in 1637, but he generally showed conspicuous moderation, inclining to leniency in the cases of Richard Chambers in 1629 for seditious speeches, and of Henry Sherfield in 1632 for breaking painted glass in a church. He prevented also the hanging of men for resistance to impressment, and pointed out its illegality, since the men were not subject to martial law. While contributing thirty horse to the Scottish expedition in 1638, and lending the king 10,000 in 1639, he gave no support to the forced loan levied upon the city in the latter year.

Summary
Lord Coventry held the great seal for nearly fifteen years (1625-40), and was enabled to collect a large fortune. He was an able judge, and he issued some important orders in chancery, probably alluded to by Wood, who ascribes to him a tract on 'The Fees of all law Officers.' Whitelocke accuses him of mediocrity, but his contemporaries in general have united in extolling his judicial ability, his quick despatch of business and his sound and sterling character. Clarendon in particular praises his statesmanship, and compares his capacity with Lord Strafford's, adding, however, that he seldom spoke in the council except on legal business and had little influence in political affairs; to the latter circumstance he owed his exceptional popularity. He describes him as having 'in the plain way of speaking and delivery a strange power of making himself believed,' as a man of 'not only firm gravity but a severity and even some morosity,' as 'rather exceedingly liked than passionately loved.'

Family
Lord Coventry was the eldest son of Sir Thomas Coventry, judge of the common pleas (a descendant of John Coventry, Lord Mayor of London in the reign of Henry VI), and of Margaret Jeffreys of Earls Croome, or Croome D'Abitot, in Worcestershire.

He married
1.Sarah, daughter of Sir Edward Sebright of Besford in Worcestershire, by whom besides a daughter he had one son, Thomas, who succeeded him as 2nd baron, and2.Elizabeth, daughter of John Aldersley of Spurstow, Cheshire, and widow of William Pitchford, by whom he had four sons, John, Francis, Henry and Sir William Coventry, the statesman.
Thomas Coventry, 5th baron (d. 1699), was created an earl in 1697 with a special limitation, on failure of his own male issue, to that of Walter, youngest brother of the lord keeper, from whom the present earl of Coventry is descended. 
COVENTRY, Sir Thomas 1st Baron Coventry of Aylesborough (I7754)
 
6626 Thomas J had 2 sisters: Anne (b 1886) and Ada (b 1898) and 5 brothers: William (b 1889), Harry (b 1892), Albert (b 1894), Arthur (b 1896) and James, the youngest of all (born 1900). EVANS, Thomas James (I8348)
 
6627 Thomas Malet, late of Shirehampton, Gloucestershire, died a bachelor; administration granted to John Malet, Esq., nephew and next-of-kin to deceased, October 7th, 1651. MALET, Thomas (I7372)
 
6628 Thomas Mallett of Gerrans has been combined with Thomas Mallett of Mylor because the two places are very near to one another, and the transcript of his marriage to Deana Pollard in Mylor indicates that he was a Widower, so it is plausible that both families belong to the same man.

This Thomas appears to be the predecessor of all of the "Malletts of St Gluvias" (Penryn, for the most part). He might be the son of another Thomas who was christened in 1618 in St Erth, Cornwall (ID#3278), or he might be the son of Sir Thomas Malet (c. 1586, ID#2745), christened Aug 26, 1634 (ID#2757). The argument for the latter is that he was a career soldier, so could have been posted to Pendennis Castle, near St Gluvias. He is also thought to have had a son Thomas, and is about the correct age to be this Thomas, whose birth is estimated to be 1647. Arthur Malet, in Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family, says that Thomas son of Sir Thomas married Sarah Goodwin, but no record has been found of this union.

He being the son of Thomas of St Erth and Liskeard seems a bit of a stretch. 
MALLET, Thomas (I6314)
 
6629 Thomas Mallett was a widower when he married Mary Soloman in March 1792. Thomas's first marriage may have been to Mary Thistle in Gisleham in 1783. The Gisleham records are incomplete and there is no further mention of Malletts in Gisleham. However, Thomas in Gisleham signed his name with an X whereas Thomas in Kessingland marrying Mary Soloman signed his name very clearly. At first the Gisleham Thomas was discounted, but later it was found that a Thomas Mallett witnessed the marriage of Nathaniel Cowles in Kessingland in 1786 and signed with an X. This is the first Mallett in the Kessingland registers. MALLETT, Thomas (I2139)

6631 Thomas was 3 months old at the time of the 1901 census, nominally Apr 3, 1901. MALLETT, Thomas Kendall Knight (I10749)
 
6632 Thomas was a boarder in the household of James Painter, probaly Jane's father. Only the youngest 5 children were still at home. PAINTER, Jane (I5892)
 
6633 Thomas was a boarder in the household of John Legassick, Mortar Mason. MALLETT, Thomas John (I6577)
 
6634 Thomas was a half brother to Elizabeth. His mother's name is unknown. CROOK, Thomas (I2211)
 
6635 Thomas was a lodger in the household of Eden Wills, age 38, widow. His age was given as 29, and single. MALLETT, Thomas Lang (I6654)
 
6636 Thomas was a Servant in the household of George Powlesland, Farmer. MALLETT, Thomas (I9725)
 
6637 Thomas was a widower. MALLETT, Thomas (I3051)
 
6638 Thomas was a widower. His "Mother", Virtue Brewin, lived with him. She was probably his mother-in-law, however, given that a Thomas Mallett married a Clara Brewin in Dec 1877 in Leicester (v7a p493), and then a Clara Mallet died in Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire, in Jun 1880 (v7a p91), age 30. Clara Brewin can be found in the 1871 census, aged 20. Virtue Brewin was married, and probably lived with Thomas to help out with his 1 year old daughter Matilda. MALLET, Thomas (I5)
 
6639 Thomas was described as a "sojourner", so was not from St Hilary. Family F1608
 
6640 Thomas was living in the household of his grandparents John and Sarah Keast. MALLETT, Thomas (I4437)
 
6641 Thomas was living with his sister and brother in law, Mary and Josiah Tansur. He was unmarried. MALLETT, Thomas (I57)
 
6642 Thomas was living with his uncle Edwin Mallett, but listed as "son". Thomas's father had died just over a year ago, and his mother Martha was living in Bristol with Thomas's other 2 siblings, and probably struggling to provide for them working as a Charwoman. Perhaps the "son" entry was a msitake by the enumerator, or maybe Edwin took Thomas in to help Martha out. MALLETT, Thomas William Charles (I10716)
 
6643 Thomas was living with his uncle William Setterfield. MALLETT, Thomas (I78)
 
6644 Thomas was married, aboard the ship "SS Earl of Jersey". MALET, Thomas (I194)
 
6645 Thomas was not listed, so presumably he was dead and Jane was a widow. Jane (I1400)
 
6646 Thomas was the 4th son of Sir Robert eden, Bt. EDEN, Thomas (I7585)
 
6647 Thomas was unmarried, a "relative" living in the household of Henry Mallett, Brewer Servant. MALLETT, Thomas (I2659)
 
6648 Thomas was unmarried, a lodger in the household of James Jarrett, Shepherd. MALLET, Thomas (I3006)
 
6649 Thomas Webb, Lodger, Unmarried, age 39, lived with them. Family F320
 
6650 Thomas's age is 17 in 1881, 24 in 1891, and 37 in 1901. Since 2 of 3 agree, his birth year is pegged as 1864. MALLETT, Thomas (I653)
