    If lights have been the cause of your injuries, you will probably be very aware of them and maybe a little cautious also. However, they were much more dangerous in the 19th century. Rushlights were often used then. They were simply rushes dipped in drippings or other greasy substances and then set alight. They were probably the most well used form of lighting in England before the coming of gas. The reason for this is that the poor could make them for free.

    A tax on candles

    There was a tax on candles which was one penny a pound for tallow candles and three and a half pennies a pound for wax candles. For those who lived in the countryside, the sheep fat needed to make tallow candles could be utilised for soap or cooking instead. Furthermore, when making candles, wicks were needed which were made from either cotton or linen; that was a further expense.

    At the end of the day, what you used for lighting all came down to how much money you had. Those who were better off used tallow candles but the wealthy would use beeswax candles because the tallow ones would give off an aroma of sheep. Tallow candles also had to have their wicks regularly cut or snuffed but the wax candles did not.
