John, Although not my direct line I have some information on Akers family in Woolwich. William Akers [shipwright] married Sarah Chittenden on 20th April 1822 at St Alphage, Greenwich. They had at least 6[8?] children,including Henry John Akers baptised 15 July 1827 at St Mary Magdalene, Woolwich, the eldest[?] being William Thomas Akers baptised 16 March 1823, the youngest[?] being Edmund James Akers , born 15 Oct 1844. If it is of interest I have information on descendants of thesechildren but unfortunately nothing on William Akers/Sarah Chittenden prior to their marriage.

I would be very interested in any further information that you have on this line, as I am the One Name Study contact for the Akers surname.Thus far I have little knowledge of Akers in the US/Canada/Australia but extensive details of the surname in the UK. As yet I cannot find any connection between your William & Sarah and the William Akers & Sarah [Dougherty]being researched by John King.
