While in many particulars I think Mr C J Feret is correct there are certain errors. One in particular refers to my Grandfather Sir Richard Burton, who had nothing whatever to do with Sir Richard Francis Burton, a Captain in the Indian Army, coming into existence, and, as far as I know, never even saw him.
    There is no association between the families.
    My Grandfather, son of Sir John Burton, was a Yorkshire man settled in Thanet, as he was Equerry to King William IV., by whom he was styled 'The First Gentleman of Thanet'. When the King came over from Hanover from time to time and landed at Broadstairs or Ramsgate, my Grandfather met His Majesty and put him up at Sackett's Hill House. I may add that his Grandfather was one of Marlborough's Generals in Flanders and for those interested in pedigrees, I add his has traced in unbroken succession to Henry VII of England through his daughter, Margaret, making him in part Scotch but wholly British".

    "Margate Grocer's Failure
    The statement of affairs in the bankruptcy of John Stephen Sackett, of Albert House, Charlotte Square, Margate, Grocer, shows liabilities amounting to 1,535 and a deficiency of 1,318. The Official Receiver (Mr J O Morris) states in his observations:– "The debtor (aged forty-one) states that he commenced business on his own account as a grocer, in a small way, at No's 45 and 47 Buckingham Road, Margate, fifteen years ago, with a free capital of 70, that subsequently (four years later) he purchased a similar business at 16 St John's Road, Margate, for 200 of which sum he states 100 was borrowed but repaid within a few years. In 1912 he also opened another shop at 9 Cranbourne Place Margate. The debtor alleges that the before mentioned business was carried on successfully until the commencement of the war in August 1914, since which date, the receipts have fallen off very considerably. In addition, several of his employees joined HM Forces, with the result that three years ago he disposed of the stock etc at 45 and 47 Buckingham Road and about a year ago, for the same reason, he also sold the business at Cranbourne Place Margate.
    The debtor also states that owing to scarcity of labour—in addition to trade at Margate being practically at a standstill—he closed the shop at 16 St John's Road, about a month prior to the Receiving Order, and removed the whole of the stock there from a warehouse at Albert House Charlotte square, at which premises he appears to have also carried on a wholesale grocer's business, The debtor admits that he became aware, about two years ago, of his involved financial position, but states that he continued to trade, hoping for an early termination of hostilities. He attributes his insolvency solely to the effects of the war (loss of trade scarcity of labour and inability to obtain goods). He has been much pressed by creditors during the last twelve months."

    We regret to announce the death of Mr. B. Sackett, a well-known Thanet farmer, which took place on September 7th at his residence, East Northdown, at the age of seventy-four years. The deceased had been in indifferent health for some time, but the end came quite unexpectedly.
    He was one of the oldest and best known farmers in East Kent, having been engaged in agriculture for over fifty years. The deceased was much respected and esteemed by every one who knew him, and he will be greatly missed, not only in his own neighbourhood, but amongst those with whom he associated at Canterbury market and elsewhere.
    The funeral took place on Thursday, September 12th, at Margate Cemetery, the first part of the service being held in St. Mary's Church, Northdown. The Vicar of Margate (the Rev. Thomas Harrison) officiated both at the church and at the graveside. There were many mourners, amongst them being Mr. Arthur Sackett (son), Mrs. Quested, Mrs. Willett, and Miss Sackett (daughters), Lieutenant Eric G. Quested and Mr. H. Quested (grandsons), and Mr. E.L.P. Quested (son-in-law).

    Arthur Sackett pic "Disappearance of a Thanet Farmer
    Presumed Death
    In the Probate Court on Monday, before the president, Mr Middleton moved to presume the death of Arthur Henry Sackett, which had taken place on or since April of last year. Counsel said Sackett was a retired farmer, of 29 Rancorn-road, Margate, and was fifty-seven years of age and unmarried. He left his house, in Rancorn-road last April, at eight in the evening, and had never been seen since. He formerly worked with his father at Northdown Farm, near Margate. His father died in 1918, and testator benefited under his will to the extent of 20,000. On leaving the farm he went to live with his sister Mrs. Rosie Quested, at 29, Approach-road, Margate, until 1920, when he took a farm at Chilton, near Ramsgate, which he gave up in 1921. Towards the end of the year or early in 1922, he went to lodge at 29, Rancorn-road, Margate, and in 1923 he bought the house and continued to live there. He was peculiar in his habits there. He drew large sums from the Bank up to the time he disappeared, and from that time the account had not been operated.
    The President: It comes to this, that on the evening he left his lodgings, he went for walk on the cliffs, and has never been seen since.
    Mr. Middleton: That is so. He has been advertised for in all the local Press.
    His Lordship gave leave to presume his death as having taken place on or since April 22nd of last year."
