Oh Yes there was!!
According to Wiki: In 1793, during the war with revolutionary France, the Bank issued the first 5 note. Four years later, 1 and 2 notes appeared, although not on a permanent basis.

Cheers Tec!  So!  My friend was dead right.  And I was dead wrong!  Wouldn't be the first time.

PS  I was absolutely convinced I tell you that the Bank of E had never issued a 2 note.  Not once. Not ever.  In fact I was definitely decidedly convinced that 2 notes were just musical hall jokes. 
Just shows you how wrong P-Kasso can be.  Watch this space and I'll no doubt show you how much wronger I can be when I really try!

I have a friend who is adamant that the Bank of England issued 2 notes sometime in the 18th Century or thereabouts.

I say, equally pig-headedly "Oh no there there wasn't".

Who wins this battle of stubbornness?
