The Armorial and Motto are those of the Malet family, a Norman family which came over with William the Conqueror and settled in the 12th century at Curry Malet and Shepton Malet, County Somerset. A baronetcy had been created in 1663 for services rendered during the Civil War, but by some accident was omitted from going under the Great Seal, and therefore lapsed. The family were raised to the Peerage again in 1791 and the owner of the Coasters was specifically Sir Charles Warre Malet, 1st Baronet, FRS and FSA of Tisbury House, County Wiltshire. He was born in 1752 and in 1799 married Susanna, daughter and co-heir of James Wales of Bombay. Sir Charles died in 1815, leaving an heir and a number of other issue.
