John Akehurst

b. circa 1751, d. 1828
     John Akehurst was born circa 1751 at Sussex, England; Could be the same as person id 8083. Perhaps an undocumented (or lost) baptism to John Akehurst (id 8013) and Elizabeth of Alfriston?
Although there is a 8 Dec 1751 baptism in Berwick (which is adjacent to Alfriston) it is accounted for by an infant burial. The only other possibility in the Sussex Baptisms Index is the 1751 baptism in Hellingly.
John Akehurst died in 1828 at Alfriston, Sussex, England.
John Akehurst was buried on 9 January 1828 at St Andrew, Alfriston, Sussex, England, "age 77 years."1
If this John Akehurst was strictly 77 years old when he was buried then his birth would have been between 10 Jan 1750 and 9 Jan 1751.

b. circa 1680
     John Akehurst was born circa 1680 at England.
I have doubts that John Akehurst who married Susanna Pollington was the son of Samuel Akehurst, which is shown in many other trees. John's marriage says he is "of Dallington" and then they lived at Herstmonceux. It appears that they married at Hellingly because it was Susanna's parish, not because John was born there. Also, they don't name any of their children Samuel. John's burial date of 1733 (see below) has not been able to be verified so far.
John Akehurst married Susanna Pollington, daughter of John Pollington and Susanna Piper, on 25 April 1706 at Hellingly, Sussex, England, John of Dallington, Susanna of Hellingly.1,2
Some trees have a burial date of Aug 1733 at Hellingly but this has not been verified (not in SFHG indexes.)

b. 4 October 1752, d. 1831
FatherJohn Akehurst b. 22 Nov 1720, d. Oct 1777
MotherElizabeth Fuller d. 1777
     John Akehurst was born in 1752 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.
