The photograph shows the tombstone of John Adam Malet who was born in 1769 and died in 1813, and his wife Jane Malet who was born in 1779 and died in 1835. They are almost certainly the man and woman whose marriage is recorded in the Cork Evening Post on Thursday, 23 June 1796. The marriage notice reads 'Yesterday at St. Mary Shandon, Mr John Malet of this city to Miss Jane Hudson daughter of Mr George Hudson of Newmarket'. Malet is a Huguenot surname and the tombstone is in the Huguenot cemetery between Carey's Lane and French Church Street. James Malet, one of the sons of John Adam and Jane Malet became Deacon of Cloyne in 1825 and later served as a curate in the Holy Trinity Church. Another son, also named John Adam Malet was a fellow of Trinity College Dublin.
