The term “chek'd” or  checked in the 18th century referred to any number of patterns woven or printed that intersected at right angles in order to create squares.  Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes most often found in aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers and linings as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings and chair coverings.  This check is virtually identical to a token left for a little girl at the  Foundling Hospital London, along with a light blue ribbon. Indigo appears as the more common color of checks in the collection especially when all linen.  The weight of this linen makes it suitable for men’s shirts, aprons, children’s clothing, linings and utilitarian needs.
