    Thomas was illiterate and his "mark" was entered on the certificate. This level of literacy was not abnormal during this period in England's history. Education was not "free" until 1870 and the wages of children were an important part of the family budget. By 1851, when Thomas was 13, only 10% of the children attended school - more in London but much less in the countryside. Note Lucy is considered a "spinster" at 17 years of age.
