Families covered: Marett (Maret) of La Haule

'Armorial' (p275) reports that "This family is probably of Norman, certainly of French, origin, and is not, as is sometimes supposed, a branch of the English family of Marriott, although the name and arms of both are somewhat analogous.

BLG1952 is more certain with the relationships and starts a generation earlier, indicating that the family had been researched further after 1859.
