Lieutenant John Sackett

(1653-1703)
FatherJohn Sackett of New Haven (early to mid-1620s-1684)
MotherAgnes Tinkham (c 1630-1707)
Lieutenant John Sackett, soldier and glazier, of New Haven, Connecticut, son of John Sackett of New Haven and Agnes Tinkham, was born in New HavenG on 30 April 1653.1,2,3,4,5 He died aged 50 in New HavenG on 6 November 17031,5,6 and was buried at the Grove Street Cemetery, New HavenG.7 He married in about 1686, presumably in New HavenG, Mary Woodin, daughter of William Woodin and Sarah Clark.1,8,9 Mary was born in about 1658.10 She was baptized at First Congregational Society, New HavenG, on 7 April 1689.11 She died aged 59 in New HavenG on 27 November 171712,13,14,15 and was buried at the Grove Street Cemetery, New HavenG.14
Like his father and many of his kinsmen [Lieut John Sackett] took a lively interest in military affairs. As soon as he had reached the required age he joined the New Haven military company and remained an active member of it to the day of his death. After serving several years as a private and non-commissioned officer, he was commissioned an Ensign and later a Lieutenant. The records of the General Court of Connecticut show that at a session held at Hartford May 14, 1696, a lease from certain Indians, for a considerable tract of land to John Sackett and others, was confirmed.

—Weygant, The Sacketts of America

     John's name appears a number of times in the New Haven Ancient Town Records.16 At Town Meetings held on 27 November and 25 December 1682, he was granted land to build a house and shop to set up business as a glazier.17 He was listed in a town meeting report of 22 December 1712 (the same list having previously been exhibited in the General Assembly on 20 October 1704) as having been a proprietor of the town in 1685.18,19This detail is also recorded in Savage's Genealogical Dictionary.20 At a meeting on 28 April of that year John was chosen to be a "heyward [overseer of hedges] for the Governors quarter".21 At the same meeting he applied for a grant of land to compensate for the town's construction of a highway through his land at the plains.22 On 27 December 1686, the town discussed further the construction of this highway.23 By May 1688, John Sackett had become a Sergeant and was elected as a constable for the year.24 Land applications by John Sackett, now an Ensign, were made to town meetings in March and April 1698.25 In March 1703, he was appointed, with others, to be "a sizer to size the Land to be laid out."26 Atwater, in his History of the Colony of New Haven,27 lists John Sackett as having attained his highest rank, that of Lieutenant, in 1700.
     Lieut John Sackett died in 1703 but administration of his estate proved complicated and was not finally completed until after the death in 1717 of his widow Mary. An inventory of John's estate was taken on 25 December 1703. John's son-in-law Jonathan Alling was appointed administrator on 26 December 1717 by the Court of Probates of John's estate and of the estates of John's widow Mary and daughter Mary.

Children of Lieutenant John Sackett and Mary Woodin


17. Lieut. John Sackett, 1653–1703, of New Haven, Conn., son of (5) John and Agnes Tinkham Sackett, was married about the year 1686, to Mary Woodin, 16—?–1717, daughter of William Woodin and his wife Sarah Allard. Like his father and many of his kinsmen he took a lively interest in military affairs. As soon as he had reached the required age he joined the New Haven military company and remained an active member of it to the day of his death. After serving several years as a private and non-commissioned officer, he was commissioned an Ensign and later a Lieutenant. The records of the General Court of Connecticut show that at a session held at Hartford May 14, 1696, a lease from certain Indians, for a considerable tract of land to John Sackett and others, was confirmed.
William Woodin, 16—?–1684, colonist, is first mentioned in New Haven records under date of 1643. He was married there October 5, 1650, to Sarah Allard, who died in 1693.
