  2. Baptisms Register, St Mary Rotherhithe, Surrey, "6 January 1828 Thomas Francis s. Francis & Sarah Sackett, [birth date illegible], Marigold Street, Bermondsey. Father's occupation: shipwright." [A Thomas Francis Sackett baptised by the same parents in 1819 appears on the 1841 census, aged 21. It is concluded, therefore, that the 1828 baptism was a re-baptism of the same child rather than a baptism of a second child of the same name following a death of the first child.]
