      Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, Preface:

      PREFACE.

      A GENEALOGICAL account of one's own family must naturally have a peculiar interest for those whom it immediately concerns.

      In compiling it a member of the family whose history is to be recorded runs the double risk of overvaluing incidents of trivial importance, or of falling into the opposite extreme through fear of seeming partiality for his own kith and kin.

      Inheriting a mass of a family papers which I had not leisure to look over more than cursorily, they seemed to me, however, of sufficient interest to merit closer examination than I was able to bestow upon them; and I entrusted them to my brother Arthur, whose training in diplomatic and governmental capacities in India peculiarly fitted him for the task. After more than three years' labour he has compiled the notices of the Malet family contained in the following pages, which are printed as a family record.

      I felt it a duty, with the materials I possessed, not to neglect essaying to lay before those who should come after me some permanent record of a race distinguished enough in individual instances to stimulate emulation in their progeny, and remind them that they have at least a name to support.

      My brother has well and ably sifted his materials, and I need only point to the names of William Malet, companion to the Conqueror and founder of the family in England, to his descendant in the fifth generation William the Baron who signed the Magna Charta, to Sir Thomas, whose steadfast loyalty and sufferings are recorded by Clarendon, and lastly, as not undeserving a niche in our national history, to Sir Charles Warre Malet, for the conclusion of the treaty with the Peishwa, which went far to consolidate our Indian Empire.

      Alexander Malet. [1, 5]
