Malet: Malet of Curry Malet, Malet of Deandon, Malet of Enmore, Malet of Eye
Ma30. Robert Malet a Norman b before 1035
m ?? Me30=29=28 an English lady daughter of Leofric III, Earl of Mercia and possibly Lady Godiva
A few web sites suggest that the mother of the following William Malet was a daughter of Leofric, Earl of Mercia who died in 1057. Whilst it is surely more likely that she was a generation or two before rather than after the Earl, because Leofric's wife was Lady Godiva, sister of Sheriff Thorold who is shown below as husband of 'the Countess Lucy' William Malet's granddaughter, such a connection might help explain why Lucy is sometimes referred to as a daughter of Aelfgar, Leofric's son and successor.
Ma29. William Malet b c 1050 d c 1071, Sire de Graville, Sheriff of York §B
m Hesilia Crispin dau of Gilbert Crispin de Bec
BP1934 leaves open who this William's wife saying only that he was "connected by marriage with William the Conqueror and King Harold". The Mallet site names her Heselia Crispin without showing her descent. She may be daughter of Gilbert, Count de Brionne, but the family of Gilbert Crispin de Bec seems more likely. But this leaves some confusion as Crispin sources indicate that her husband was Robert Malet, not William, and reports a source as saying that she was probably the mother of the William Malet who fought at Senlac, more commonly called the Battle of Hastings 1066. This would make Hesilia William's mother rather than his wife. Furthermore, as Hesilia and Elise appear to be variations of the same name, and noting the confusion between Gilbert de Bec and Gilbert de Brionne, so the Elisee de Brionne, shown as wife of the following Robert, may have been confused with Hesilia Crispin. Clarification is needed.
Ma28-1. Robert Malet of Eye d Tinchebrai 1106, Lord Chamberlain
Robert is reported to have wanted Robert 'Curthose' to have succeeded William the Conqueror in England as well as Normandy and to have been banished by William 'Rufus' when he took the crown instead. He continued to support the Robert and died at Tinchebrai Tinchebray where the youngest brother Henry Henry I of England defeated Robert to keep England and Normandy under single control. Some sources say that his family fell into disgrace, losing the 'Honour' of Eye, which is why a son/grandson, Hugh, changed his name to Fitchet.

i. William Malet of Eye
a. Ernest Malet, Sire de Graville ancestor of Malets in France

Ma28. Gilbert Malet
Ma27=28 Robert Malet of Curry Malet b about
Some web sites show this Robert to be the Robert we show as his uncle. The following comes mainly from the Mallet site.
Ma26 =27 =29 William Malet of Curry Malet d 1169
m Maud Mortimer
Ma26 =28 =25 Gilbert Malet of Curry Malet d 1194
m Alice Picot dau of Ralph Picot
Ma25 =27 =24 William Malet of Curry Malet d 1217 Magna Carta Surety, was mentioned as a minor in the year 1194, in connection with an expedition made that year into Normandy. His principal estate was Curry-Malet. From 1210 to 1214 he was sheriff of counties Somerset and Dorset. He then joined the Barons against King John and became one of the Sureties. He had lands in four counties which were confiscated and given to his son-in-law, Hugh de Vivonia, Thomas Basset, and to his father-in-law, and Malet was excommunicated by the Pope in 1216. He was also fined 2,000 marks, but the sum was not paid until after his death, and at that time 1,000 marks were remitted, being found due to him for military service to King John in Poitou. It is interesting to note that there were five contemporary relatives named Malet, all of whom held lands in England or in Jersey. William Malet died about 1217, having married Mabel, called also Alice and Aliva, daughter of Thomas Basset of Headington. Nothing now remains of Malet's estate of Curry-Malet.

Ma26. Sir Baldwin Malet of Enmore
BP1934 shows Sir Baldwin as son of Hugh Fitchet, younger son of William Malet of Eye see @@@ above. The Mallet web site reports that this view is not unknown, being based on research published in 1885, but reports also research published in 1938-9 which suggested that this may have been based on a misinterpretation with the descent shown here being more likely. That site also reports the suggestion that reference to Fichet may have come through Sir Baldwin's wife, Emma, who may have been daughter or step-daughter of Hugh Fichet whose wife Basilea may have been the heiress of Enmore. BP1934 identifies Baldwin's wife as ...

m1. William of Arques = William d'Arches possibly William, Vicomte d'Arques or William d'Arques ??
HJY
Beatrice's second marriage shown below which is not mentioned in the Mallet web site identified below is based on the presumption that the following Lucy was the offspring of such a marriage. According to TCP, which dedicates a whole Appendix to 'the Countess Lucy" Appendix J in Volume VII, her parentage "is one of the unsolved puzzles of genealogy". It reports an early chronicle as saying that "she was a daughter of Aelfgar, Earl of Mercia, and niece or grandniece of Thorold, sometime Sheriff of co. Lincoln". HOWEVER, TCP also says "All that is certainly known is that she was niece of Robert Malet of Eye and of Alan of Lincoln, and that Thorold the Sheriff was a kinsman." TCP then reports the view that she was daughter of Thorold, Sheriff of Lincolnshire. There appear to be arguments for both theories, both of which make reference to the inheritance of various lands. We show her here because at least some 'serious' modern genealogists seem to lean strongly towards the view that she was daughter of Sheriff Thorold Turold of Bucknell by a daughter of William de Malet. As it is suggested in various web sites that William de Malet had only one daughter, Beatrice, and as it appears to be certain that she was married to William of Arques, it is assumed that she married twice.

GHJRSY
Some web sites show two generations of Lucy, often with the second one shown as wife of the Earl of Chester being a daughter of Ivo Taillebois by the first one. TCP notes this view but reports "Charter evidence, however, proves that there was only one Lucy."

Ma29 =Pe28. Walter b c 1050 d c 1120, lord of Sibton
Pe27. Reginald de Peyton of Peyton Hall 2nd son b c 1100 d c 1150 www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/payton/pats?raw=1 shows Reginald as son of John de Peyton of Peyton Hall, Stoke-by-Nayland, Boxford, Suffolk as an intermediate generation and/or alternative descent from Walter de Sibton. This seems reasonable if both Rober Ma30 and William Ma29 and possibly even Walter Ma29 =Pe28 took part in the Battle of Hastings, since otherwise rather long spans between generations have to be "guesstimated" to show the line of descent. Adding purely guessed dates of birth and death has proved invaluable for the author as a plausibility check. The Peyton DNA Project has recently revised the assumption that Reginald was a Malet descendant and now identifies his father as Walter de Cadamo aka Walter de Caen, which is more in accord with the author's observation that there must have been one or two intermediate generations.
