    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885 p 30-31, Appendices G1, G2, G3, G4, G5:

      BALDWIN MALET OF ENMORE AND DEANDON.

      Baldwin Malet, son of William and Maria, inherited Enmore from his father. I find no mention of the date of his succession, the first deed bearing his name being in the 45 Henry III, A.D. 1261, * which, as it is dated, I place first in the Appendix. The next deed,** without date, was evidently drawn up after the marriage of Roger de Claville and Baldwin Malet respectively with Johanna and Mabel, the daughters and co-heiresses of Hamelyn de Deandon; it provides for an exchange of land, Roger de Claville taking Deandon in Devonshire, and Baldwin Malet Lidyard in Somerset. Collinson, in his History of Somerset, vol. iii, p. 496, states that "St. Audries [West Quantokshead] was held in the time of King John by William de Punchardon, of the castle of Dunster. At his death this William left several daughters, heiresses to his possessions, of whom Aubrea was married to Hamelyn de Deandon of Deandon in Devon, by whom she had a son named Thomas, who died without issue, and two daughters, Mabel, wife of Sir Baldwin Malet of Enmore, and Joan, wife of Roger de Claville; in the partition of the estates this part became the property of Malet."

      Roger de Claville and his wife Joan died without issue, and their manor of Deandon became the property of Baldwin and Mabel;*** the deed showing this is not dated.

      There are extant two deeds of Mabel Malet's, from which we find that she survived her husband: one undated, yet marked by Sir W. Pole of the time of Edward I;+ the other bearing date 14 Edward I, A.D. 1286.++

      We learn from Sir W. Pole (Sir A.M.'s MSS, vol i, sup. 2,pp.1 and 2) that the coat of arms, Azure three escallops Or, was properly the coat of the Deandons of Devonshire, which was assumed by the Malets of Enmore on the marriage of Baldwin with the heiress of Deandon, and from that time has been constantly used by all the Malets.

      By his wife Mabilia, Baldwin had issue John his heir. I find at this time also a Robert Malet, who, from the arms he used, and the time at which he lived, appears to have been a son of Baldwin. As he was a man of much distinction I must not omit him; but as a younger son, who does not enter into the line of descent, I have included him in this chapter instead of separating him in the mode I have adopted for the elder sons, and all those who come in the direct line.
