Sarah Akehurst

b. 6 August 1775, d. 1851
FatherJohn Akehurst b. 8 Nov 1753
MotherSarah Funnell d. 1796
     Sarah Akehurst was baptized on 6 August 1775 at Herstmonceux, Sussex, England.1
The candidates for the Sarah Akehurst who married James Holden are:
1.     Sarah Akehurst baptised 2 Jul 1780 at Hellingly, daughter of John Akehurst and Elizabeth Collin/Collen.
2.     Sarah Akehurst baptised 6 Aug 1775 at Herstmonceux, daughter of John Akehurst and Sarah Funnell.
In consideration of all the known facts it is my opinion that she is the Sarah Akehurst baptised 6 Aug 1775 at Herstmonceux, daughter of John Akehurst and Sarah Funnell and NOT the Sarah Akehurst baptised 2 Jul 1780 at Hellingly, daughter of John Akehurst and Elizabeth Collin/Collen.
The reasons are as follow:
1. The 1780 baptism is accounted for by the marriage of Sarah Akehurst to Samuel Saxby on 19 Jan 1800 at Hellingly. She and Samuel can be found in the 1851 census at 31 Upper St James St, Kemp Town, Brighton, Sussex. Her age is given as 72 years (i.e. born c1779) and her place of birth given as Hellingly. She is a perfect fit for the 1780 baptism. There are no other Sarah Akehursts baptised at Hellingly around that time.
2. The burial of Sarah Holden, wife of James, on 6 Mar 1851 at Hellingly, states "age 75 years, Herstmonceux". The age gives her birth as almost spot on 1775 (and not 1780).
3. The Sarah Akehurst baptism in 1775 occurred at Herstmonceux. This matches with the "Herstmonceux" information recorded on her burial at Hellingly on 6 Mar 1851.
4. When Sarah Akehurst married James Holden on 15 Oct 1799 at Hellingly she was noted as being “of Wartling”. Also, the banns had been read 29 Sep 1799 at Wartling. Wartling is closer to Herstmonceux that to Hellingly so this Sarah Akehurst is more likely to be the 1775 baptism at Hertmonceux.2 She was the daughter of John Akehurst and Sarah Funnell.
Marriage banns for Sarah Akehurst and James Holden were published on 29 September 1799 at Wartling, Sussex, England; Sarah Akehurst of Wartling, James Holden of Hellingly.3
Sarah Akehurst married James Holden on 15 October 1799 at St Peter & St Paul, Hellingly, Sussex, England, Sarah of Wartling.3
On 7 June 1841 Sarah Akehurst lived at Wartling, Sussex, England, age 65 living next to the families of Thomas and Nancy Pinyon, and Robert and Mary Hunnisett (no obvious conection to either).4
Sarah Akehurst died in 1851 at Hellingly, Sussex, England.
Sarah Akehurst was buried on 6 March 1851 at St Peter & St Paul, Hellingly, Sussex, England, "age 75 years, Hurstmonceux."5
