Dawkes couldn't write and signed his name with an "X".

Thanks Debs and David. Not that I'm any the wiser - what did the crowns represent? And why didn't they all get to wear one?
I think there's a report of the Chapman inquest that gives a list of the jurors, but on the second day one juror wasn't present so was represented by a commissionaire....could it be something like that?

No family member attended Mary's funeral. Since she was supposed to have six brothers and a sister it is hard what to make of what Mary told Joe Barnett since nearly all the info we have on her is through him.

I have no idea except that I thought normally there were 18 lines with crowns stamped at the end of the line and these were filled in by hand with the names of the jurors, not normally amounting to as many as 18 so there were crowns with no names but I've never seen a name with no crown.
Was there such a man as Henry Dawkes Lechmere? Just thinking out loud why 'Lechmere' has no forename but has got a crown but Henry Dawkes has no crown.
More interestingly, why was the name Lechmere cut off in the original post?
