AKEHURST Families of Sussex
far, I have no known Akehurst ancestors of my own.
Quiet by chance in early August 2004 I met Judith Akhurst at the ESRO.
She suggested that I attend the up coming Akehurst Family Reunion in Battle
over the weekend of 11/12/13 September 2004. Which I did and it was
thoroughly enjoyable. Grateful thanks to Morwenna Akehurst for
organising the event.
I have 2 convoluted links to the Akehurst family:
One of my cousin's Great Grandmothers was
Caroline Akehurst, who was born in 1873 in Portslade, Sussex.
Albert Thomas Gathern in 1892, and they were the
parents of my cousin's Grandfather
David William Gathern
(1895-1953). David's daughter,
Violet Lucy Gathern
(1928-1999) married my Mum's brother
Dennis Noel Tullett and they
are the parents of my cousin.
Eliza Caroline Akehurst was the daughter of
and Eliza Pumfrey
(1840-1902) who married 1859 in Hove. According to the
census, Samuel was born about 1839 in Eastbourne, Sussex and was probably
the son of Thomas Akehurst
Anna Maria Martin
(1803-1872). But this is as far as I have got
for the moment.
The sister of my 2x Great Grandfather -
Frederick Edward Boorman
(1846-1884) - was
Isabella Boorman (1839-1902). She married
Weeks (1834-?) in Wadhurst, Sussex in 1857. George was the
Weeks (1804-?) and
Piper (1805-1841), and William was the son
