The Mary Akehurst Token 1667, Lewes, Sussex.
     Mary Baker was born circa 1635 at Hastings, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of Richard Baker and Anne Akehurst.
Mary Baker witnessed the will of Richard Baker dated 10 September 1637 at Hastings, Sussex, England.1
Mary Baker married Raphe Akehurst, son of Raffe Akehurst and Letticia (?), on 11 August 1653 at Warbleton, Sussex, England, Randolph [Raphe] Akehurst of Cliffe, Lewes and Mary Baker of Burwash.2
Mary Akehurst was born of a reasonably wealthy family and was an early Quaker in the town of Lewes. She was much persecuted in her lifetime and spent time in prison for her beliefs.
The first preaching by a Quaker in Sussex was in 1655 at Horsham and in the same year they preached at Lewes where a group calling themselves "Seekers" were converted. In 1668 the Lewes Quaker meeting formally became part of the movement named the "Society of Friends".
Mary was clearly an independent and strong willed woman but suffered greatly until 1689 when the Act of Toleration released Quakers from the obligation of attending church and taking the sacraments. She was probably also somewhat relieved by the death of her husband Raphe Akehurst in 1666 who clearly did not share her beliefs (see below).
After the death of her husband she carried on the family business and in 1667 issued a half penny token in her name which now seems to stand as a symbol of her strength and resilience (tokens were issued by traders after the Civil War due to a shortage of coins). She continued her support of the Quakers until her death in 1691 playing a key role in the development of the Society of Friends at Lewes.
It is also clear that she had the support of her children who were also members of the Quakers at Lewes. All her surviving children (sons Raphe, Alexander and Thomas and daughter Mary) were fined at various times, typically for non attendance at the Anglican church.
The passage below is just one account of her early sufferings as a Quaker at the hands of her husband:
In this year [1659] Mary Akehurst, the wife of Ralph Akehurst, of the Cliff,
neare Lewis, beeing moved to goe to St Michal’s Steeplehouse [church] (soe called), where an
Independent priest [Walter Postlethwaite] was speaking, she for asking him a question,
was by people haled out, and then sent for her aforesaid husband, who after she came
home, did so hunch and pincht her, that she could not lift her arms to her head.
The same Ralph again on the seventeenth day of the third month of this present
yeare, bound the hands and feet of his said wife and pinioned her, and then covered her
very hot with bed-cloathes, and soe kept her for the space of foure or five houres; this it
seems he did because she tooke occasion to reprove a hireling priest for belying her.
Againe, upon the twenty-fifth day of the eighth month, the aforesaid Ralph did
sorely abuse his wife, on which the following lines were sent unto two Justices of the Peace
(soe called), to complain of and to declare the same that she might not perish in private,
but to lay it home to them, then in authority, viz.:
Whereas complaint hath beene made unto two of those who are in place to doe justice
as, namely, Richard Boughton and Nathaniel Studly, of cruel persecution inflicted upon
the body of a woman in the Clift, neare Lewis, by the hands of a wicked tirant, who is
called her husband; his name is Ralph Akehurst, he hath chained his wife in a close
back chamber in his house, between two high bed-steads, with a great chain much like a
timber chain, containing thirty-five links, and a staple and lock, soe that this woman
cannot move aboute the roome, or lye in the bed without this chaine, soe that with wait of
itt it hath done much wrong to her legg, besides blows and bruses that he hath given her
in executing his cruelty in putting on of this chaine, soe that thereby her body is much
weakened at present, and murther may ensue if the Lord by his providence doth not some
way for her deliverance; for this man hath promised that he will never unlock the chaine
from off her, soe that in all likelyhood his heart is bent to destroy the body of this woman
someway, for he hath attempted her life, as she hath said, by endeavouring to throatle her.
We set this forth to declare to the world, that if this woman shall putt off the body or
sacrifice her life through his cruelty, that none shall hereafter upon just grounds say that
she hath destroyed herself, or done any evil to her owne body, soe that if inocent blood be
shead, we shall be cleare and the guilt shall remaine upon the heads which suffer such things to be done.

Mary Baker witnessed the will of Raphe Akehurst dated 27 August 1666 at St Thomas a Cliffe, Lewes, Sussex, England; "residing in Dublin, Ireland."4
Mary's husband Raphe died in 1666 and he wrote his will that year while residing in Ireland. It is assumed that he died there. His presence there is not necessarily surprising as his business was concerned with importing and exporting goods from Lewes (as his father had done) and that his will indicates that he owned a one twelveth part interest in a boat. He was accused of smuggling more than once!
In 1672 Mary was visited by William Penn who lodged with her. Penn was an early Quaker and advocate of democracy and religious freedom, and later the founder of the English North American Colony the Province of Pennsylvania.5
In 1675 Mary Akehurst, widow, was fined seven pounds for being part of a meeting of Friends (Quakers).6
In 1681 the Friend's Monthly Meeting reproved Widow Akehurst for allowing her children to "scoff at people on the fast day as they went to the Steeplehouse [church]".7
In 1683, Mary Akehurst widow, Mary Akehurst spinster, and Thomas Akehurst were fined for absenting themselves from church for three Sundays.8
Mary was one of the last Quakers to be held prisoner at Horsham gaol. She was sued for not paying tithes and excommunicated for refusing to pay. "On Sunday morning, 10th July 1687, although poor and weak, she was taken on horseback to Horsham Gaol, one of the bailiffs drunk with many oaths threatening that if she could not hold on he would have her dragged at the horse’s tail. Eventually they got her to the gaol where she remained a close prisoner for 7 months and was afterwards committed to the Kings Bench prison in London. The Kings Bench prison was for debtors. It is not surprising that Friends who had been fined and had the tools of their trade taken from them should find themselves unable to pay their creditors, but it is surprising that they counted it a kindness when one of these creditors sued them. The debtor’s prison was a much more comfortable place than Horsham Gaol! Soon afterwards in 1689 the Act of Toleration released Friends from the obligation of attending church and taking the sacraments. This ended the worst of the persecution, but they were still liable for the payment of tithes and suffered much financial loss during the next two centuries."9
Mary Baker died in September 1691 at Sussex, England.
Mary Baker was buried on 29 September 1691 at Quaker burial ground, Rottingdean, Sussex, England.10
Quakers would not have their bodies buried in consecrated ground and hence provided their own burial grounds, or utilized their own orchards or gardens.The burial ground for Quakers at Lewes was at Rottingdean (Coords: 50.807409, -0.057749). It was bought by Nicholas Beard in 1661. The Beard family were a local landowning family who were influential in the local Quaker movement. 102 individuals are known to have been buried at the site between 1675 and 1889. The majority of the graves appear to have been unmarked, which is in line with Quaker tradition.
