Sarah Packham was born in 1855 at Wittersham (Tenterden district) Kent, England to John Packham and Mary Bridge.[1] She was the sixth of seven children.

On the 1861 census Sarah is age six and living with her parents and siblings in Back St, Wittersham, Kent [2] and her father John Packham is listed as a Fruiterer. Her eldest brother William Packham may have worked with his father as he is also a Fruiterer, while the next brother Edwin Packham is an Agricultural labourer. Both brothers are single.

By 1871 we find Sarah at work, she is now 16 and according to the 1871 census living in at her place of work. She is a servant in the household of Sarah Roberts, Beckley, Sussex.[3]

Five years later we find Sarah getting married to John Link also from Kent[4] John Link worked as a coachman.

Later in 1875 Sarah and John's daughter Eliza Link was born [5] but sadly Sarah didn't get to enjoy her little daughter for very long as she, Sarah died in 1876 of Typhoid fever. She was burried at Ashford on the16 September 1876 [6]
