Thomas Sackett, yeoman of Birchington, Kent, and father of Simon Sackett the colonist, son of Thomas Sackett the elder and Joane ___, was born, presumably in Thanet, KentG, in about 1557. He was buried at BirchingtonG, on 4 November 1615.1 He married at St Peter's Church, ThanetG, on 8 February 1581/82, Martha Strowde.2 She was buried at St Peter's ChurchG, on 4 January 1631/32.3
     Thomas was named as a beneficiary in his father's will made in St Peter in ThanetG, on 30 March 1594.4 His father died in 1595 and Thomas inherited his father's tenement and lands at St Peter in Thanet and the residue of the estate after various monetary bequests to his brother and sisters. Thomas was the executor of the estate.
     Thomas lived at Birchington and it would appear that his house and lands in St Peter were occupied and managed by John Edmunds who was buried at St Peter in Thanet on 8 October 1611, described as a servant to Thomas Sackett.5
     Thomas made his will at Birchington on 23 June 1615, naming as beneficiaries his wife Martha, his son Thomas, his daughter Johan, his grandson Hugh Wright, and his granddaughter Martha Wright.6 He instructed his executors (his wife Martha and son Thomas) to sell his house and land at St Peter's to pay debts and legacies. He was also possessed of a house and land at Birchington. He willed that each of his sons should receive £10, and each of his daughters £5, after the expiry of a lease on the Birchington property. The will was proved in the Consistory Court, Canterbury, KentG, on 7 November 1615.6 Thomas was a yeoman farmer in the Thanet parish of Birchington and was a churchwarden (oeconomus) at Birchington Church. His sons and daughters, other than Thomas and Johan, are not referred to by name in the will. Among his sons not named was Simon Sackett who, some fifteen years later, was to emigrate to the New World.
