William Sakekyn

(late 1200s-after 1317)
William Sakekyn, of Northborough, St Peter in Thanet, Kent, was born presumably in the late 1200s.1
     This William, whose surname may indicate kinship to the Sackett family, was another of the tenants (with William Saket) involved in the dispute of 1317 with the Abbot of St Augustine.2

 Notes & Citations

  1. The "kyn" suffix in this surname probably indicated "son of", suggesting a possible relationship to Saket. No other records of Sakekyn have been found.
