      From http://www.sackettfamily.info/g20/p20861.htm on 31 Jul 2017:

      Thomas Sackett, of St Peter in Thanet, Kent, whose parents have not been identified, was born in say 1530. He was buried at St Peter's ChurchG, on 26 March 1595.1 He married in about 1555, Joane ___.2 She was buried at St Peter's ChurchG, on 19 December 1593.3
      Thomas made his will in St Peter in ThanetG, on 30 March 1594, naming as beneficiaries his sons Thomas and George, and his daughters Anne and Mildred.4 Thomas's description of himself in his will as a 'labourer' suggests that he was not a wealthy man. However, the fact of his making a will at all, and the bequests to his children, define him as a landowner and suggest that he was a man of some substance. He left his tenement and lands in St Peter's to his elder son Thomas. He left his younger son George a sum of 12. He left a cow to his elder daughter Anne and five ewes and a lamb to his younger daughter Mildred. Anne and Mildred were also left various specified household items which were to be valued, with additional sums of money to be paid to each up to a value of 5. Also named in his will was a godson, John Sackett, to whom he left 1. This was very probably his grandson, John the son of Thomas the younger. The will was proved in the Archdeaconry Court, Canterbury, KentG, on 2 June 1596.4
      Thomas died in the same year as, but probably a few months before, the birth of his grandson Simon who was to emigrate to the New World.
