Samuel was unusual in spelling his surname "Sackette". The apparently affected use of the final "e" was continued by his daughters.
Samuel acquired the Marine Boarding House in Ramsgate in 1819 and continued to run the establishment for most of his life. Advertising his new business in the London Times, he assured "those Ladies and Gentlemen who may honour him with their favours, that he has made arrangements for conducting the Boarding Establishment on a plan which he flatters himself will be found to ensure every degree of domestic comfort and liberal treatment." Families could be "accommodated with private sitting-rooms having good sea views."9 He was at some time the deputy mayor of Ramsgate.10
Samuel was named as a beneficiary in his father's will made in Ramsgate, KentG, on 1 May 1804.11
In 1841 Samuel was living at Rose Hill, Ramsgate, KentG, and was recorded in the census as Samuel Sackett, a bookseller, aged 45+ and born in Kent. Living with him were his wife Louisa, 45+, and their children, Mary, 11, Annie, 9, and Margaret, aged seven.12
In 1851 he was living at Marine House, Ramsgate, KentG, and was recorded as Samuel Sackett, proprietor of house, head of household, married, aged 57 and born in Margate.

Samuel's will, made in RamsgateG on 3 September 1849, was proved at Canterbury on 28 June 1856. He left all his estate, real and personal, to his wife Rebecca while she remained a widow, with reversion in equal parts to his four daughters.14 He left all his real and personal estate to his wife during her widowhood, with reversion in equal parts to his four daughters.
