Richard Saket the younger
|Father||Richard Sackett the elder (probably before 1477-1549)|
|Mother||Margaret ___ (say 1480-1553)|
Richard made his will at St Peter in ThanetG on 9 April 1545. Named as beneficiaries were his wife Crystian, his son John, and his daughter Margery.1 Both children were under twelve at the time of his death. Richard left his land and tenements to his wife Crystian until their son John reached 21 when he would inherit. The will was proved in the Archdeaconry Court of CanterburyG on 9 May 1545.
Richard's will was witnessed by "Richard Sackete the elder". On that scant evidence it is deduced that Richard the elder was probably the father of this Richard. Against that, however, it is noted that the elder Richard, making his own will three years later, made no provision for the young children John and Margery who would, if the supposition is correct, have been his grandchildren.
The "Thomas Sacket of Sacketts Hill", named as an executor of Richard's estate, has not been positively identified. He may have been Thomas Sacket, gentleman of St Peter in Thanet, (who himself died at about the same time as Richard and was unlikely to have been able to have carried out the duties of executor.)
Date: 9 April 1545.
Proved: Archdeaconry Court of Canterbury, 9 May 1545.
