162553856. Sir Baldwin Malet & 162553857. Emma Neville   

~1135, Baldwin born in Curry Mallet, Somerset, England, s/o 325107712. Baldwin Malet & 325107713. Avice ?.

2/28/1155, Sir Richard Carpenter, priest, instituted as rector of the parish church of Enemere at the presentation of Avice late the wife of Baldwin Malet, knight, lady of Enemere. (S) Register of Nicholas Bubwith, Bishop of Bath and Wells, V2, 1914, P428.

1156, Baldwin returned fees on property.

1166, “Baldwinus Malet 2 milites et 3m partem … ” from Willelmi Malech in Somerset. (S) FMG.

1166, Baldwin was the “terre tenant” of Enmore manor. [This appears to be the time of the split of the Malet families between Enmore and Currey-Malet.]

1169-70, Baldwin in the Somerset in connection with a lawsuit. (S) Genealogists’ Magazine, V8, 1939, P318.

9/3/1189, Richard I crowned king of England.

(S) Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family, Arthur Malet, 1885, PP27-28, App. D1-D2. (S) A History of the County of Somerset, V6, 1992.

Family notes:

·         Baldwin Malet [the father], s/o 325107712. Robert Malet.

·         Emma was a step d/o Hugh Fichet & Basilea ?.  G.E.G. Malet, writing in 1938-9 in “The Genealogist” magazine, argues that the Latin terms used in a deed of land in which Baldwin describes Hugh Fichet as his father and Basilea as his mother could equally be interpreted as meaning “Father-In-Law” and “Mother-In-Law. Emma, heiress to the Enmore Estates [which is in conflict with the 1155 record of Avice], held by her mother Basilea in her own right. (S) Sir A.M.'s MSS., Vol. II, P45. [The other theory that Hugh Fichet was really a Malet that changed his name while hiding from the King is more interesting, but much less likely to be true.]

·         After the first deed Baldwin adopted the seal which was affixed to a 2nd existing deed, which must have been executed at a later period. The seal to this deed is very large; on the one side a man, armed with sword and shield, on foot, armored head to foot, with his sword in this right hand, striking at a lion leaping upon him; on the other, two men in gowns talking together, the one having a crown on his head. The circumscription, “Sigillum Baldwini Malet”. The explanation of this seal is that it symbolised the rebellion of William Malet [his ancestor] on the one side, and the reconciliation of the King to Baldwin Malet on the other. (S) Sir A. M.'s MSS., Vol. I, Sup. 1, P3.
