MALOT, Francois Paul (mah-lo), French author, born in Conde sur Noireau in 1770; died in Argentan in 1832. He entered the navy as a midshipman in 1784, became a lieutenant in 1793, and in 1795 was one of the chiefs of the squadron of privateers that devastated several of the English West India islands, he went afterward to Guadeloupe, where he became commander of the navy and directed the armament of the numerous privateers that were sent out by Victor Hugues (q. v.). Malot held various commands in the colony under the subsequent governors, and, when the English took possession of Guadeloupe, remained there as a prisoner till 1814, and devoted his time to the study of the colony. He returned to France in 1815, and lived quietly on his estate near Argentan till his death.
