Spelling of name[edit]

Historical records for Malleson have a combination of "Frederic" and "Frederick", and that is for both primary and secondary records. The predominance is for "Frederic" especially among the primary records, and contemporaneous references. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:43, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

For Anglican clergyman one of the better references is Crockford's Clerical Dictionary series as this was user provided data, and regularly was updated by the user through the series. See snippet from Crockford's 1885 phab:F18622172 which is the last, prioer to his death, to which I have access. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:53, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
While at the same you sometimes cannot trust them—TCD's alumni work doesn't show him [1]—I generally accept that they get their name right. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:03, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
