Vincent Andrews Sackett, farmer of Northwood, St Peter in Thanet, Kent, son of John Sackett and Catherine Andrews, was born in St Peter in ThanetG on 4 May 1793 and baptized there on 20 May 1793.1 He died aged 90 in NorthwoodG on 5 June 18832,3,4 and was buried at St Peter in ThanetG on 11 June 1883.5 He married at St Peter in ThanetG on 29 October 1814, Mary Browning, daughter of William Browning and Sarah ___.6 Mary was baptized at Stourmouth, KentG, on 19 October 1789.7 She died aged 68 in ThanetG,8 and was buried at St Peter in ThanetG on 4 January 1858.9 Mary was a sister of Jane Browning, the wife of Barzillai Cock who was a witness at the marriage of Vincent and Mary.10,11,12 Also living in Vincent and Mary's household was Elizabeth Cock, a niece of Mary's brother-in-law Barzillai Cock. Vincent had two illegitimate children by Elizabeth: Vincent in about 1837 and Barzillai in 1844. They were brought up in Vincent and Mary's household alongside their legitimate child Mary. Elizabeth continued to live in the household, being described in the 1851 census as Vincent's niece and a domestic servant. Elizabeth Cock, who was the daughter of William Cock and Sarah ___, was baptized at St John in Thanet, KentG, on 4 July 1819.13
     Vincent was named as a beneficiary in his father's will made in St Peter in Thanet, KentG, on 26 April 1823. He was left all remaining property and personal estate after other bequests, and was appointed an executor of the will.14
     In 1851 Vincent was living at Northwood, St Peter in ThanetG, and was recorded in the census as Vincent A Sackett, head of household, a farmer with 15 acres, aged 57 and born in St Peter's. The other members of his household were his wife Mary, aged 59 and born in Stourmouth, Kent, his unmarried daughter, Mary, aged 23, his sons, Vincent, 13, and Barzillai, 6, his granddaughter Julia, 5, and his niece, Elizabeth Cox, a domestic servant aged 30.15
     In 1861 he was living at NorthwoodG and was recorded as Vincent Sackett, a farmer of 13 acres, head of household, a widower, aged 67. Living with him were E Cox, niece and housekeeper, unmarried, aged 40, and B Cox, a servant, aged 17, and described as Vincent's niece.16 [E Cox would be Elizabeth Cock; it is unclear who B Cox would have been, although it is likely to have been a wrongly recorded Barzillai Sackett, son of Vincent and Elizabeth, who has not been found elsewhere in this census.]
     In 1871 he was living at NorthwoodG and was recorded as Vincent Sackett,a farmer "out of business", head of household, a widower, aged 77. Living with him was Elizabeth Cox, aged 50, described as a general domestic servant.17
     In 1881 he was living at NorthwoodG and was recorded as Vincent A Sackett, a former farmer, head of household, a widower, aged 87. Living with him was Elizabeth Cox, housekeeper, unmarried, aged 60 and born in Canterbury.18
     Vincent's will, made in NorthwoodG on 15 March 1882, was proved at Canterbury on 21 July 1883. Named as beneficiaries were his son Barzillai, his grandson George Taylor, and his granddaughter Mary Jane Matilda Taylor. He appointed his son Barzillai and Charles Giles, husband of his granddaughter Julia, as executors and trustees. He placed his homestead of 5½ acres, with two cottages, in trust, one cottage to continue to be occupied by his son-in-law George Taylor, and the other to be occupied by his grandchildren George Taylor and Mary Taylor, the two grandchildren to be responsible for their father's maintenance. He left to his common-law wife Elizabeth Cock "commonly called Elizabeth Sackett" all household furniture and effects, and the right to live in his cottage for six months after his death. The residue of his estate was to go to his son Barzillai. The value of his personal estate was £147.19
