In the description of the columns, to the right of number three there is a distinct tick.

As that box is a heading for the whole column , how would you possibly know to which entry on the page it referred  ? I think it's just a random mark.

My bad im sorry. I just assumed that since he was the only one with something in the column on that page then it would've refered to him.

Another case of "Don't Assume".

The handwriting of the word Lunatic Lincoln seems to match the writing of the page header St. Botolph's which does suggest something written later than the bulk of the page, as suggested to clarify the entry.
