      Obituary from the Minutes of the Wesleyan Ministry Conference 1851

      Edward Sackett; who was born in the Isle of Thanet, and early in life brought to God. In the year 1838 he entered into the work of our itinerancy, and laboured with great diligence, faithfulness, and success, in the Circuits to which he was appointed. His piety was deep, and his judgement sound. His ministry was highly instructive and practical; his expositions were lucid, and his sermons the fruit of a strong mind, enriched by general reading, and by the study of the sacred Scriptures. Firm in his purpose, and of great integrity, he had the affection of the people, as well as the confidence of his brethren; and he bade fair to maintain for many years an honourable and useful position in the Connexion. But his course, so full of promise, suddenly terminated. Under debility, brought on by great mental excitement,?the result, doubtless, in some measure, of painful Connexional agitations,?he rapidly sunk. All the Societies under whom he laboured cherish the most grateful remembrance of him and deeply lament his unexpected removal from the church militant. He bore his affliction with Christian resignation, his sufferings were often extreme, but his God sustained him. He said, "Every cloud is removed. Christ is precious." "You cannot tell the comfort I derive from those words,?'Being fortified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.' " He died November 6th, 1850, in the fortieth year of his age, and the thirteenth of his ministry.

      In 1851 Edward's widow was living at West Street, New Sleaford, Lincolnshire, and was recorded in the census as Maria Sackett, Wesleyan Minister's widow, head of household, aged 30 and born in Margate. Living with her were her children, Maria, 7, Catharine, 5, and Edward, aged one.19
      In 1871 she was living at 30 Newroad Side, Horsforth, Yorkshire, and was recorded as Maria Sackett, an annuitant, head of household, a widow, aged 50, and born in Margate, Kent. Living with her were her unmarried son Edward aged 21, and a female servant.20
      In 1881 she was living at New Road Side, Horsforth, and was recorded as Maria Sacket, an annuitant, head of household, a widow, aged 60, and born in Margate. Living with her were her son Edward, daughter-in-law Alice, grandchildren Edward, 2, and Nora, 11 months, and a female general servant.21
      Maria made her will on 18 July 1882. She left personal estate of some 3,000 to be divided equally among her four children. The will was proved at Wakefield on 19 July 1884.16

      8.The name James instead of Edward on the death and burial records is unexplained and is assumed to have been an error. There is no evidence to suggest that Edward ever used the name James. The General Register Office indexer compounded the error by reading James Sackett on the death certificate as James Packett, creating a further research challenge.
