Anne Sackett

(c 1653-after 1707)
FatherJohn Sackett (1622-1681)
MotherMary ___ (c 1625-1683)
Anne Sackett was born, presumably in Thanet, KentG, in about 1653. She may have been a daughter of John Sackett and Mary ___. She married at St Lawrence in Thanet, KentG, on 12 May 1678, Martin Long.1 He predeceased her and was buried at St Lawrence the MartyrG on 13 May 1707.2
     Martin and Anne were named as beneficiaries in the will of Mary Sackett, widow of Mary Sackett, made at St Lawrence in Thanet on 18 April 1683. They were to inherit the northern end of Mary's house in Ramsgate, where they were then living, paying £20 to Mary's daughters, Mary, Hester, and Elizabeth.3
     Although Anne was left a part of John and Mary Sackett's house, the context of Mary's will suggests that Anne was not her daughter. A birth or baptism record for Anne has not been found. One possibility might be that she was an illegitimate daughter of one of John's sisters.
     Anne's husband Martin made a will at St Lawrence in Thanet on 21 April 1707. He left all his messuages, tenements, etc. to Anne during her widowhood, and then to their sons, Martin, John, and Richard. The will was proved on 26 July 1707.4
