Hi! my grandmother on my father's side was Clara Cavalier and she was descended from French Huguenot stock and came from the low countries Northern France and Southern Belgium. There were many Huguenot families that came over to UK and to the USA durint the 16th and 17th centuries, they were mainly weavers by profession.
Where do you fit in with the Cavalier line? You mention Malta and the Canary Islands in the same sentence. Malta is a large Island, south of Sicily (Italy) and naturally in the Meditarranean. The Canary Islands are off the West coast of Africa and belong to Spain. These are two different countries and there are no Cavalier families from there. The name means, "Horseman" and is akin to the Spanish name, Caballero.
