Cyril Hart in "William Malet and his family", Anglo-Norman Studies, xix, 1996, pp. 123-165, says William Malet's wife is Esilia, daughter of Gilbert Crispin I of Tillieres. This agrees with the information in M. Jackson Crispin and Leonce Macary, Falaise Roll, Table XIII and in several places in the text (e.g., pp. 28, 43, 128, 158).

Hesilia, the widow of William Malet, appears to have been amply dowered. She is recorded in Domesday many times as holding property under the designation as "Mother of Robert Malet." Her son Robert made a charter to the Abbey at eye in which he stated that William Malet was his father and Hesilia his mother. Hesilia was the sister of the two Crispins who who fought at the Battle of Hastings.
