John Saket, husbandman of Sackett's Hill, St Peter in Thanet, Kent, son of Richard Saket the younger and Crystian ___, was born after 1533. He was buried at St Peter in ThanetG on 8 April 1592.1 He married in say 1555, Margaret ___. She was buried at St Peter in ThanetG on 19 December 1596.2
     John was named as a beneficiary in his father's will made at St Peter in ThanetG on 9 April 1545.3 John was then under twelve years of age. He was to receive ten sheep and a cow when he attained that age. He was to receive a horse, cart, plough, wheat and barley at 21, and was then to inherit his father's lands and tenements at Sackett's Hill.
     This John was probably the "John Sackett the elder" mentioned as a landowner in the will of William Sackett.
     John made his will at Sackett's Hill, St Peter in ThanetG, on 1 March 1590.4 He named as beneficiaries his wife Margaret, his son Thomas, and his daughters, Joyce, Katherine, Judith, and Eve. He left his farm in the parishes of St Peter in Thanet and St John in Thanet to his daughters, Katherine, Judith, and Eve, who were also appointed joint executors. Two of John and Margaret's children, John and Mary, had died young. Of the remaining five, Katherine, Judith and Eve were charged with the maintenance of Thomas and Joyce. It is assumed that Thomas (for whom a birth record has not been found) was under age in 1590 but Joyce would have been nearly 29. As she was to be cared for by her sisters, it would appear that she was sickly by this date. She died at about the same time as her mother in December 1596. John's will was proved in the Archdeaconry Court of CanterburyG in May 1592.4
