“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?
