For over 15 years there has been two Akehurst Families claiming that William Akehurst born 29 Oct 1775 Mayfield, Sussex was their William Akehurst.  Following the DNA Test, I had 2 DNA link which took my tree back passed William born 1775 and linked to a descendant’s line off his father and Mother and another link two more generation back.  

I also have links on my mother’s side of my tree you never know what might turn up.
