     John Akehurst was born in 1751 at Hellingly, Sussex, England.

Discussion ********
Possible baptisms for John Akehurst are:
12.12.1751 John son of John and Elizabeth Ackhurst, and
4.10.1752 John son of John and Elizabeth Akehurst.
Which one is the John Akehurst who married Elizabeth Collen (who I will call JOHN1), and which is the John Akehurst who married Lucy Rippington (JOHN2)?
JOHN1 was buried on 14 Apr 1829 age 78 years, while JOHN2 was buried on 17 Dec 1831 age 79 years (as proved by his will). The latter burial would imply that JOHN2 was born between 18 Dec 1751 and 17 Dec 1752 which would agree with the 1752 baptism. The former burial would imply that JOHN1 was born between 15 Apr 1750 and 14 Apr 1751 which doesn't fit any of the baptisms. However, the data (which may be incorrect!) implies that JOHN1 was older than JOHN2, so the best assumption for now appears to be that the 1751 baptism is for JOHN1 and the 1752 baptism for JOHN2.
Now, the next problem is matching the baptisms to the two marriages:
John Akehurst and Elizabeth BURWASH on 24 Jun 1751 at Hellingly.
John Akehurst and Elizabeth FULLER on 14 Nov 1751 at Hellingly.
At this stage we can only make an assumption and I feel the best one would be that JOHN1 is the son of Elizabeth BURWASH given that he would have been baptised 6 months after the marriage, a fairly common occurrence. JOHN2 would then have been baptised the son of Elizabeth FULLER 13 months after the marriage. The alternative (if JOHN1 was the son of Elizbeth FULLER) would mean that he was baptised just one month after the marriage. Given that he was not noted as illegitimate, and that baptisms usually occurred about one month after the birth, this would seem to be the least likely answer.
Note that there is also a burial in Alfriston of a John Akehurst on 9 Jan 1828 with age given as 77 years which may account for the 1751 baptism. This would put his birth between 10 Jan 1750 and 9 Jan 1751. HOWEVER, there may be a c1751 baptism at Alfriston that we dont know about as there are crucial gaps in the records there, so this is being ignored for now. Needs further work.

In the Poor Law records for Hellingly 1757 there is an entry: Thomas Lucas agrees to take and keep John Akehurst from Lady Day 1757 to Lady Day 1758 for three pounds and ten shillings

Marriage banns for John Akehurst and Elizabeth Collin were published on 24 November 1776 at St Peter & St Paul, Hellingly, Sussex, England; Banns were read on 24 Nov, 1 Dec and 15 Dec 1776.
John Akehurst married Elizabeth Collin on 26 December 1776 at Hellingly, Sussex, England, Elizabeth's surname spelt COLLEN. Both of Hellingly parish. Witnesses: John Burgess and Henry Blunden.3
John Akehurst witnessed the marriage of Mary Collins and Thomas Farrant on 20 April 1778 at Laughton, Sussex, England; Thomas of Framfield. Witnesses: John AKEHURST; John VINE.3
Marriage banns for John Akehurst and Maria Burgess were published on 12 March 1797; Banns were read on March 12, 19 and 26 in 1797.
John Akehurst married Maria Burgess, daughter of Elizabeth Burgess, on 4 February 1798 at Hellingly, Sussex, England. John was a widower. Witnesses to the marriage were John Burgess and Henry Blunden (the parish clerk).3
John was a widower when he married Maria Burgess in 1798. He was 45 years old and she was 19 years. It is interesting to note that there was a delay of nearly 12 months between the reading of the banns and the actual marriage, during which time their daughter Jane Akehurst Burgess was born. John's previous wife, Elizabeth Akehurst (nee Collen/Collin) was buried on 4.11.1792 at Hellingly ("wife of John, poor").
On 16 April 1801 at the Lewes Quarter Sessions, a John Akehurst of Hellingly was committed to Lewes house of correction for running away and leaving his wife and family chargeable to Hellingly, adjudged a rogue and vagabond, recommitted for 6 weeks then discharged. Not sure if this is for "our" John Akehurst. (ESRO: QO/34/1801-04-16.)
John Akehurst died in 1829 at Hellingly, Sussex, England.
John Akehurst was buried on 14 April 1829 at Hellingly, Sussex, England, "age 78 years."4
John and Maria's daughter Martha married James Holden in 1826 and had three children (Sally Mariah, Harriet, and Jane Anne) before emigrating to Australia on the ship "Alfred" arriving Sydney 16.1.1839. They had a fourth child, Charlotte, born 24.12.1840 at Allyn River, N.S.W. (near Dungog, Hunter Valley area). A descendant of this family is Estelle M. Neilson, 40 Cornderrk St, Reid ACT, 2602, Australia. The parents of James Holden were James Holden and Sarah Akehurst and Estelle reports that her family folklore has that the James and Martha, who married in 1826, were related.
John's wife Maria moved to Icklesham sometime after his death. Their daughter Harriet Sargent (nee Akehurst) died in 1835 (buried 17 Jul 1835 at Icklesham "33 yrs, wife of Philip jnr") leaving a young family. It would appear that Maria took over the raising of the children, and is living with Philip Sargent in the 1841 and 1851 census at Icklesham. She died there in 1862, age 91 years.
