From the churchyard at Martham, Norfolk. Christopher was conceived from an incestuous relationship between Alice and her father. Christopher left home when he was very young and returned many years later. Unknowingly, he took Alice as a mistress and they later married. Shortly after marrying, Alice recognised an unusual birthmark on Christopher’s body and realised who her husband actually was.
