I have updated The Sackett Family Association
with the following additions:
* Notables Jeffery Sackett, Mayor of Sandwich
* Chancery Court
o Sackett v. Haite (16771684)
o Denne & Verrier v. Combes (1680)
My thanks to Arabella Sackett for the family photographs.
The Jeffery Sackett biographical sketch is by way
of follow-up to the sighting of his gravestone by
Jean Carpenter and Debbie Barbee during the
reunion in Thanet last September. The wheels of
genealogical sketch-writing turn slowly!
Hand-written transcripts of the two Chancery
Court cases that Jeffery was involved in were
supplied to me by Marion Sackett just over five
years ago. -- So, I'm a very slow typist. Sackett
v. Haite is rather long but worth a read. One
comes to the perhaps unsurprising conclusion that
human nature was the same in 1680 as it is now.
Unusually, there were no new members this month.
