Why have you picked it?
“We were hopeful that we might be able to find records of the court proceedings, but were astonished to find that the actual bill of exchange – the evidence – had survived. The bill of exchange gave Anne the chance to weigh up the evidence against her great great grandfather by comparing signatures.” Where did you find it?
