Richard Ford Akehurst

b. 5 April 1772
FatherJoseph Akehurst b. 3 Apr 1757, d. Dec 1809
     Richard Ford Akehurst was baptized on 5 April 1772 at St Pancras, Arlington, Sussex, England, "Richard Senderford [Sinderford?] baseborn son of (?) Akehurst."1 He was the son of Joseph Akehurst.
It is difficult to identify Richard's mother and father, although the Poor Law records need to be searched. For now, Richard is shown attached to Joseph Akehurst who made him a beneficiary of his will. Richard's connection to the Akehursts is likely to be somewhere on Joseph's line anyway.
Richard Ford Akehurst married Mary (?) circa 1805 at Sussex, England.
Richard Ford Akehurst witnessed the will of Joseph Akehurst dated 22 November 1809 at West Firle, Sussex, England.2
