Emma Harriet Sackett, daughter of William Francis Sackett and Elizabeth Ann Foord, was born in St Peter in Thanet, KentG, in 1857.1 Her birth was registered in the names of Harriet Emma and she was baptized as Harriet Emma at St Peter's ChurchG, on 8 March 1857.2 She died aged 83 on 1 April 1940.3 As Emma Harriett Sackett, she married at Ebenezer Chapel, Ramsgate, KentG, on 27 January 1884, Frederick William Woodward, a house painter, son of Stephen Woodward.4,5,6
     In 1861 Emma was living at 4 Grays Cottages, Broadstairs, KentG, in the household of her parents William and Elizabeth, and was recorded in the census as Harriett E Sackett, aged 4, and born in Broadstairs, Kent.7
     Harriet/Emma appeared twice in the 1871 census, being recorded in both her parents' and grandparents' households. In 1871 she was recorded as living at 1 Thanet Road, BroadstairsG, in the household of her parents William and Elizabeth, and was listed as Harriet Ann Sackett, a scholar, aged 14, and born in Broadstairs.8 She was listed in the same census living at Albion Street, BroadstairsG, and was recorded as Emma Sackett, a scholar, aged 13 and born in Broadstairs, in the household of her grandparents Francis and Hannah Sackett.9
     In 1881 she was living at 10 Albert Place, St Peter's, KentG, in the household of her uncle John Holley, a farm labourer, and was recorded as Ann Sackett, a dressmaker, unmarried, aged 24, and born in Broadstairs. Also in the household was her 13-year-old sister Annie.10
     It would appear that, by 1881, Emma Harriet was known as Ann, having been recorded as Harriet Ann in one of the 1871 listings. That this Ann was the same as Emma Harriet would appear to be confirmed both by the fact that her younger sister Annie was living with her and also that her address in 1881 (10 Albert Place) was surely the same as the address from which she married in 1884 (10 Albert Cottages.)
     In 1891 she was living at 2 Farley Cottages, St Peter's, KentG, in the household of Frederick W Woodward, head, married, 32, house decorator, employed, b. Broadstairs, and was recorded as Emma H Woodward, aged 34 and born in Broadstairs. Living with them were their children, Mabel, 3, and Gilbert, aged ten months. Also in the household were Emma's aunt,
Harriet Jennings, 49, and her husband Thomas.11
     In 1901 she was living at 2 Farley Cottages, St Peter's, Broadstairs, KentG, in the household of her husband Frederick, 42, a house decorator, and was recorded as E H Woodward, aged 43 and born in Broadstairs. Living with them were their children, M H, 13, and Gilbert, 10, and Emma's widowed mother Elizabeth, 69. Also in the household were Emma's sister Annie and brother-in-law Charles with their daughter Nellie.12
