Starkman quotes [[ "The Rev. Thomas Robert Malthus, younger son. Born at The Rookery in Surrey on 13th February 1766 and baptized there the following day."

Birth time unknown. Penfield speculated for 17 February 1766 at 16.00 LMT. Americana and Britannica both give February 14, 1766.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Malthus and His Time by Michael Turner and Chris Cunneen (Springer, 1986), p. 20: "In February 1766, the first baptism entry in the Anglican parish register of Wotton, Surrey states: 'Malthus—Thomas = Robert, Son of Daniel Malthus of the Rookery Esq[ui]r[e], and Henrietta = Catherine his wife, was privately baptised 14th February (born 13th).'"
