John Henry Sackett, son of Henry Sackett and Hannah Foott, was born in Rotherhithe, SurreyG, on 7 July 17891 and baptized at Jamaica Row Independent Chapel, Bermondsey, SurreyG, on 7 August 1789.1 He died, presumably in KentG, after 22 April 1818. John disappeared after visiting a Mr Harvey at Parsonage House, Woodnesborough, KentG, on that date. Harvey placed a newspaper advertisement on 3 May offering a reward of ten guineas for information. It was feared that John, who suffered from fits, may have drowned, or possibly was on board a Royal Navy ship.2
     John was named as a beneficiary in his father's will made in Kennington Green, Lambeth, SurreyG, on 15 June 1807. He was left, equally with his sisters Ann and Mary, a sum of £2,000, together with the proceeds from the sale of all real estate, and the residue of his father's personal estate after other bequests.3
     John was named as a beneficiary in his uncle Ambrose Sackett's will made in St John in ThanetG on 6 February 1808. He was left an amount of £500 in Government stocks (initially in his father's custody) "to set him up in business". He was also left £20 in his own right.4
