The admissibility of evidence in a peerage claim is entirely within the jurisdiction of the committee hearing the claim1, but ordinarily the rules of evidence prevailing in the civil courts are followed2. The committee will usually accept evidence admitted and recorded in previous claims, especially in relation to pedigrees, with all just exceptions, to the date of admission, but application for permission to use the evidence must be obtained before it will be admitted3.
