Sir John Malet or Mallet, of Enmore and Deardon in Devon, was admitted Fellow Commoner at Emmanuel College, Cambridge in November 1586. He was High Sheriff of Somerset in 1601 and was knighted in 1603. His son, also John, the Joannes Mallet Armiger of the inscription in the volume by Perkins, was Member of Parliament for Bath in 1623, and High Sheriff of Somerset in the same year.. Two other binding stamps with similar borders are known, one for Sir Edward Coke and the other for Sir Thomas Ducket.
