An 'X' after someone's name means they 'made their mark' rather than wrote their names, but that doesn't necessarily mean they were both illiterate. For instance, a literate bride might not want to upstage her illiterate husband-to-be.

The CLARKSON and BIGLAND families are now being discussed on RootsWeb's free Lancashire mailing list, LancsGen. The thread can be read in the list's archives. You'd be very welcome to subscribe to the LancsGen mailing list where you'll find many friendly and helpful fellow subscribers. Unfortunately, I'm unable to include a link to the list's information page, but searching for RootsWeb plus LancsGen should bring up the URL.
