Milicent Malet, born ~1300.
Milicent married Laurentius de Broc.
Family notes:
·         Robert Malet, bore as his coat of arms three escallops as borne by the Somerset Malets, and as this coat was first adopted by Baldwin Malet, and as no one unconnected with him could have taken his arms, Robert must have been a younger s/o Baldwin's. As his father does not appear to have had any possessions in Buckinghamshire, it is to be presumed that he was rewarded by the King with lands in the Midland Counties, for the service which he rendered to the Crown. The Mordaunts, Earls of Peterborough are descended from Milicent Malet by an heiress of Broc.
