In the sixteenth century, the age of legal adulthood in England was ten. Girls were often married off by that age, and boys a little later. For most there was no formal education. ‘Life was rude and there was not much to learn’ (Aries, 1962). A new vision of childhood developed among the rich in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries where it was seen as a period of innocence and play, free from the duties of adulthood. Aries suggests one practical reason for delaying adulthood was that armour had become too heavy for a child to wear and the sons of the elite could only be considered adult when they could fight alongside their fathers.
