About John Malte
John Malte received a sizeable grant of land from the king in 1541, including the manors of Watchfield and Uffington in Berkshire, and another, with Ethelreda, in 1546. John Malte's will is dated September 10, 1546 and was proved June 7, 1547. In it he calls Ethelreda "Awdrey Malte, my bastard daughter, begotten on the body of Joane Dingley, now wife of one Dobson."
John Malte lived with his daughter, Bridget Scutt, and Ethelreda continued to live with the Scutts after his death, marrying John Harington somewhat later than Harington's biographer proposes.
