About William Malet, Lord of Enmore

Excerpt from "Notices of an English Branch of the Malet Family", by Arthur Malet, published 1885, p 28-29, Appendices E1, E2:

"William Malet, the son of Baldwin, married Sara, the daughter of Raymund de Sully, as we learn from a deed* of Henry Lord de Modyford. His deed conveying the farm of Hethcumbe to his wife Sara,** is dated in the 36 Henry III (A.D. 1252); he probably died about that time. He left issue by his wife Sara, William his heir.

Managers of William Malet,

I appreciate that there is little way of really determining most relationships around this time, but I don't think that the line given by Arthur Mallett in 1885, who does not strike me as a very good researcher, is the most likely. Burke's Peerage (1934) gives a more probable one. www.familyhistory.org has more up-to-date research (and makes this William the son of the William who married Maud de Kitemore, shown here on Geni as his half-brother). The wife of Sir Baldwin (the father -on Geni - or as I think more probable, the grandfather of this chap) married Emma de Neville, daughter of Hugh de Neville.
