Origin of Surname

Malet comes from the Old French maleit, accursed. The first Malet may have been excommunicated, or he may have seemed dogged by misfortune.

Spelt Mallet, the name is very common today in Normandy, and records there show Turstinus Malet (10079), Tostinus Malet (1109), Robertus Malet (1220) and Malet de Altifago (1337).

Family album

A postcard sent to Miss Elvina Mallet at La Rocque in 1909. Elvina was born in 1884, the daughter of farmer George and his wife Ann, nee Le Rougetel. The family lived at Summer Field, La Rocque, where George farmed 10 acres. He and Ann were married in St Helier in 1877. They had four other daughters in addition to Elvina: Annie, Ada, Lilian and Georgette. At the time of the 1891 census Elvina was living with her grandparents, Charles and Lydie Le Rougetel, at 58 Beach Road, along with her 87-year-old great-grandfather Edouard Le Rougetel, who had previously been a farmer, also at Grouville. It is possible that he previously owned Summer Field, but that is not clear from census returns. In 1891 Elvina's elder sisters Annie and Ada were living with George and Ann at La Rocque. We believe that George was baptised George Winter Mallet and was the son of La Rocque fisherman Charles Mallet and his wife Marie, nee Le Gros
