     John made his will in St Peter in Thanet, KentG, on 26 April 1823, naming as beneficiaries his wife Catherine, his sons Vincent, John and Jeremiah, his daughters Elizabeth, Mary and Ann, and his grandson Edward Sackett.8 John left a house and garden at Northwood to each of his daughters Elizabeth and Mary. Bequests to his daughter Ann and sons, John and Jeremiah, were in the form of the waiving of existing loans. His son Vincent was left the residue of the real and personal estate. John's widow Catherine was to be maintained by half-yearly payments from each of her children. John's will named only one of his many grandchildren; his grandson Edward was left an amount of £30, his being singled out perhaps suggesting that he was a godson.
