Page 123 for marriage for the Parish Church in the parish of St. Leonard Shoreditch is a clear document showing the marriage of William and Margaret.

Nbr. 248, 18 January 1859. William Loyd Causon, 22, bachelor, labourer. Residence 9 Mary Street. Father William Loyd Causon, labourer.
Margaret Ann Wood, 21, spinster, servant. Father Robert Wood, labourer.
The witnesses were Henry Wilton and Mary Roach.
It appears that William signed his name and that Margaret made her mark with an X.
The marriage was performed by an R.S.L. Brockman after the publication of banns.
DeathShe died in 1911 at Hackney, London, England. 
NoteCensus information consistently places Margaret's place of birth in County Essex and some census information adds that she was born in Hornchurch, Essex. Such census information as we have places Margaret's birth in 1837, though this is likely approximate. The 1841 census at Hornchurch shows the family of Robert and Margaret Wood with daughter Margaret present and her age is given as 2. The 1851 census at Hornchurch shows her age as 13 and this is likely closer to the fact. Robert Wood is shown as being agricultural labour.

An index to death registrations places Margaret's death in June of 1911 at Hackney. June may be correct, though it may also represent the quarter of the year. The actual death registration remains to be found.

It isn't clear what brought the Causon family to live in London, but Hornchurch in Essex is only a few miles east of London. London must have been a magnet for people in outlying areas seeking employment.
