Akehurst DNA Project -Have you had your DNA Done!


The Akehurst/Akhurst names appear to derive from East Sussex and Kent and it has often been debated whether the family groupings have a common origin or if they developed independently. Up until now, we have been unable to test these hypotheses as the paper records do not extend back far enough to allow us to reach any reliable conclusion.


In recent years, the science of DNA testing has progressed to the stage where there is a real possibility of finally resolving this issue. Therefore, an Akehurst DNA Project is on going and hopefully a link between the variant names and in particular to see if the Kent group and the Sussex group share a common origin.


The test which our study uses, a Y-DNA-37 test, looks at segments of the Y chromosome known as genetic markers. The segments which are tested cannot be used to determine paternity, hair colour, or inherited diseases. The strength on this DNA testing lies not in the individual test report per se, but in comparing the test report with historic populations.   All you have to do is swab the inside of your cheek and send the swab to the laboratory.  It is certainly not a test you have to study for! Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records and will help with your research into your tree.  As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information on the evolution of the surname and enable us to link disparate trees.


If you go to Ancestry and order yourself a DNA kit at https://www.ancestryshop.co.uk/


Finely download and transfer your DNA details to GedMatch and MyHeritage and contact us at Akehurst DNA Project.


Join the Akehurst  E-mail List

The List's description on Yahoo-Groups says our List is: "A mailing list for genealogists and family historians who are researching the Akehurst name. Includes variants such as Ackhurst, Ackehurst, Akhurst, Akurst.  "This email List is named the Akehurst List only because the Akehurst spelling variant accounts for two-thirds of our 'catchment area'; however all variants are treated equally.  The Akehurst E-mail List is an electronic email list, of 110 members, which is maintained to keep all Akehurst (and variant) researchers in contact. The Akehurst List is maintained at Yahoo Groups and is a ' closed list', which means that approval has to be given for people to join. All Akehurst (and variant) researchers are welcome to join - simply contact the List Moderators Colin Ackhurst and David Evans
