PREFACE. 



During the time I set myself the pleasurable task of inves* 
tigating the early history of Child's Bank, I had occasion to 
look through a vast quantity of old cheques, bills, and cash-^ 
notes, extending in time over close upon two centuries; when I 
observed that all drafts passing through the hands of a gold- 
smith or banker were endorsed by such goldsmith or banker, 
and that in most cases the endorsements were witnessed by 
one of the clerks. 

I applied myself, therefore, to the collection of all these 
drafts, or a fair sample of them, with a view to seeing how far 
they would throw light upon the early history of bankers. This 
done, the next step was to refer to the List of Goldsmiths keep- 
ing running cashes, published in the " Little London Director/^ 
of 1677, and to extract lists of all goldsmiths and bankers from 
the London Directories at the British Museum. The first of 
the set — a thin volume — was published in 1677; the second 
did not appear until 1736 ; and the next dates were 1738, 1740, 
1754, 1759, 1763, and so on, with occasional intervals of a 
few years, down to the present date. Upon turning again to 
the documents at my disposal, however, I discovered that the 
missing data, not to be obtained from the British Museum, 
Guildhall Library, and other likely sources, could be supplied 
by the endorsements to the old drafts and cash-notes in the 



Yi PREFACE, 

possession of Messrs. Child and Co. In addition to these 
materials, I have been enabled to obtain information respect- 
ing early goldsmiths and bankers from other quarters, of which 
due acknowledgment is made in the course of these pages. 

My design further is to give the complete series of Lists of 
Bankers as published in the various London Directories. These 
Lists generally have been obtained from the British Museum — 
individual media are specified at foot of Lists otherwise derived. 
It is a matter of regret to me that an unbroken sequence of 
dates cannot be obtained owing to the Directories for many 
years not having been preserved in the National Library. 

Having regard to greater^convenience for reference, I have 
elected to compile this little volume after the style rather of a 
dictionary than of a running chronological account. The names 
of goldsmiths and bankers of whom no information can be 
gathered are omitted, unless such goldsmiths or bankers' names 
do not appear in the lists at the end of the volume, as it would 
simply amount to needless repetition.. 

The various firms are described under the styles by which 
«uch banks last flourished or were familiarly known, the names 
of the firms being from time to time mentioned with references 
to the heads under which they are recorded. It is possible 
that in some instances I may have described a firm from 
insufficient data. I shall, therefore, esteem it a favour if 
bankers, and others interested in the subject, having authentic 
information qualified to correct or supplement that already 
given, would communicate the same either to me or to Messrs. 
Chatto and Windus, in case it should be deemed desirable to 
issue a second edition. 

The following banking businesses are immediately descended 
from the goldsmiths mentioned in the " Little London Direc- 
tory,*' as keeping running-cashes in 1677 : — 

Blanchard and Child, " Ye Marygold," in Fleet Street ; 
now Child and Co. 



PREFACE, vii 

Buncombe and Kent, " Grasshopper," Lombard Street ; 

now Martin and Co. 
James Hore, " Golden Bottle," Cheapside ; now Hoare and 

Co., Fleet Street. 
Humph. Stocks, " Black Horse," in Lombard Street ; now 

Barnetts, Hoare and Co. 
Thomas Williams, " Crown," Lombard Street ; now Willis, 

Percival and Co. 

My best thanks are due to those bankers (more especially to 
!Mr. John B. Martin) who have so readily and willingly responded 
to my application for information respecting their banks, and to 
the Clerk of the Goldsmiths' Company.

Ade. 

Ade was goldsmith to King Edward the First, and many 
of the gold and silver vessels made for the sideboard of that 
King are said to have been the work of this goldsmith. 

Adey. 

The firm of Adey, Macgeorge and Co., which was started 
at 22,. Old Bond Street, in 1800, was of short duration, as it 
does not appear in the list of bankers for 1805. The name 
of Adey had been associated with the firm of Boldero, Ken- 
dell and Co., from the year 1770 up to 1800 ; which rather 
points to the conclusion that he left the latter firm to start a 
bank in Old Bond Street. 

Agra and Masterman's Bank. 

Established in 1855, with a paid-up capital of ;£^i, 500,000, 
and a reserve fund of ;£^5oo,ooo. It stopped payment in 
the crisis of May 1866, at which time its liabilities were 
;^i 5,582,002. (See Masterman.) 

Albion Bank, 1864 — 71. (See Challis.) 

Alexander, Oonliffes and Oo., 

Of 30, Lombard Street, bankers and bill-brokers, were 
established as a separate house about 1836 under the style of 
Cunliffe, Brooks and Co., who were, I believe, an offshoot 
from Roger Cunliffe, of 24, Bucklersbury. They first located 
themselves at 29, Lombard Street. In 1855 the style of the 
firm was Cunliffe and Co. ; and in 1865 Alexander, Cunliffe 
and Co. ; they having been joined by Mr. Alexander, who 



2 A HANDBOOK OF 

had been at one time chief clerk in the bank of Robarts 
Curtis and Co. They were then carrying on business at 24 
Lombard Street The present fipn consists of — 

George William Alexander. 
Roger Cunliffe. 
John Cunliffe. 
"William Fowler. 
Robert Harry Alexander. 
William Cleverley Alexander. 

Alliance Bank (Liniited), 

Bartholomew Lane, was established in 1862, and recon- 
structed in 187 r. It has a paid-up capital of ;^8oo,ooo, with 
a reserve fund of ;^i 70,000. 

Amyand, Staples and Co., 1762. (See Dimsdale). 
Anderson, John and Alexander, 

Appeared in the list of bankers in 1793 as carrying on 
business at 1 7, Philpot Lane. They are not found in the 
Directory after 181 2. 

Archer, Hyde and Co., 1776. (See Dimsdale.) 

Arnold, Christopher, 1731 — 6. (See Hoare and Co.) 

Asgill, Sir Charles and Co., 1755—70. (See Nightingale.) 

Atwell and Co. 

Were bankers and goldsmiths, of whom the earliest men- 
tion I can find is upon the old cheques and cash notes of 
Messrs. Child and Co., in the years 1715 and 17 16. There 
is no record of them either in the Little London Directory 
of 1677, or in the next Directory that waspublished, which 
was in the year 1736. The firm therefore must have sprung 
into existence and failed in the interval between the pub- 
lication of the two lists. 

Gay in his letter to Snow, the goldsmith, wrote as follows 
in 1720: 

'* When credit sank and commerce gasping lay. 
Thou stood'st, nor sent one Bill unpaid away ; 
When not a guinea chinked on Martin's boards, 
And Atwell's self was dndned of all his hoards.'* 

These lines seem to point to the conclusion that, during the 
intense panic caused by the collapse of the South Sea Bubble, 
this house stopped payment. 

Atkins, Honejrwood and Fuller, 

Of Lombard Street, 1738. (See Fuller.) 



LONDON BANKERS. % 

Austen, Maunde and Austen. 

This firm was of short duration. They were established 
at lo, Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, between 1807 — 1814. 

Ajrton and Co. 1774 and 1785—98. (See Lees.) 
Backwell, Alderman Edward, 

Was an eminent goldsmith and banker in the reign of 
Charles the Second 3 he was one of the King's bankers, 
His shop was in Lombard Street. Under the head of ** Ex- 
change Alley, Comhill," in Cunningham's Handbook of 
London, it will be found that it was enlarged, if not altogether 
built, after the Great Fire, when " a comer shop at the south 
end of the new alley, called Exchange Alley, next Lombard 
Street, was taken down. The shop belonged to Alderman 
Edward Backwell, an eminent banker and goldsmith, ruined 
by the shutting-up of the Exchequer in the reign of Charles 
the Second." 

Strype (B. iL p. 149), writing of the same place, says : "It 
is a large place, vastly improved, chiefly out of an house of 
Alderman Backwell's, a goldsmith before the Great Fire," &c. 

The following entry in Pepys' Diary, under date 12th 
February, 1663 — 4, proves that Backwell did goldsmith's 
business as well as banking : — " Called at Alderman Back- 
well's, and there changed Mr. Falconer's state-cup, that he 
did give us the other day for z, fair tankard. The cup 
weighed with the fashion jQ^ i6s. ; and another little cup, 
that Joyce Norton did give us, 17s. ; both;^6 13s. ; for which 
we had a tankard, which come to ;^6 los., at ss. 7d. per 
oz., and 3s. in money." 

Alderman Backwell was a man of very high position as a 
goldsmith, and was frequently sent for by the King when he 
was in need of money ; which it seems was a chronic state 
with that monarch. 

Pepys mentions the name of Edward Backwell no less than 
twenty-six times. — On the 6th July, 1665, he records : — 
" Alderman Backwell is ordered abroad upon some private 
score with a great sum of money; wherein I was instrumental 
the other day in shipping away. It seems some of his 
creditors have taken notice of it, and he was like to be broke 
yesterday in his absence ; Sir G. Carteret telling me that 
the King and the Kingdom must as good as fall with that 
great man at this time; and that he was forced to get 
^£"4000 himself to answer Backwell's people occasions, or he 

I — 2 



A HANDBOOK OF 

must have broke; but committed this to me as a great 
secret." 

A few da)rs afterwards (on the 26th) Pepys says : " Whilst 
Backwell is still in Flanders, poor Robin Shaw, his right 
hand man, died of the plague." 

And again, on the 23rd November, 1663, Pepys was with 
Alderman Backwell, talking of the new money, which he 
believes will never be counterfeited : " but it is so deadly 
inconvenient for telling ; it is so thick, and the edges are 
made to turn up." 

On June 13th, 1667, Pepys records a run upon BackwelFs 
house : " They are so called upon for money that they will 
be all broke, hundreds coming to them for money : and they 
answer him, * it is payable at twenty days : — ^when the days 
are out, we will pay you :' and those that are not so, they 
make tell over their money and make their bags false, on 
purpose to give cause to retell it and so spend time. I can- 
not have my 200 pieces of gold again for silver, all being 
bought up last night that were to be had, and sold for 24s. 
and 25 s. a piece. So I must keep the silver by me, which 
sometimes I think to fling into the house of office, and then 
again know not how I shall come by it, if we be made to 
kave the office." The house weathered that storm, as the 
same authority states that he called on Backwell on the 3rd 
May, 1668, when the banker told him how he had bought an 
estate at Buckeworth, within four miles of Brampton in Hunts. 

Alderman Backwell was one of the many goldsmiths ruined 
by the closing of the Exchequer, by Charles the Second, on 
the 2nd January, 1672. The Crown then owed him as much 
as ;^295,994 i6s. 6d., in lieu of which the King gave him 
an annuity of ;^i7,759 ^3S- 8d. ; the original bond for the 
payment of which, bearing the autograph of the King, is now 
the property of Mr. Charles Tyringham Praed, who is a 
descendant of the Backwells, A copy of this curious and 
interesting document may be seen in " Ye Marygold." 

Nine or ten of the Alderman's old ledgers are in the pos- 
session of Messrs. Child and Co., who, upon the failing of 
Alderman Backwell, took over many of his customers' ac- 
counts; and with whom a considerable number of their 
descendants bank to the present day. 

Evidence is supplied by these ledgers that Mr. Backwell 
gave interest for money on deposit In 1665 the following 
rates were allowed : — 



LONDON BANKERS. 5 

Money at call, sometimes'at 3^ per cent, and sometimes 
at 4 per cent : 

At 10 days' notice 4 per cent. 
At 14 „ 5 per cent 

At 20 „ 6 per cent 

And in 1666 he allowed as much as 5 percent for money 
at demand ; and 6 per cent for fourteen days. 

From the numerous celebrities in Backwell*s books the 
following may be selected : — 

King Charles the Second. 

Queen of England. 

Queen Mother (Henrietta Maria). 

James, Duke of York. 

Prince Rupert 

Henry Cromwell. 

Charles, Duke of Richmond; son ot the Duchess of 
Portsmouth, natural son of Charles the Second. 

James, Duke of Monmouth, natural son of Charles the 
Second. 

Duchess of Orleans. 

Countess of Castlemaine, 

Prince of Orange. 

Samuel Pepys, the Diarist 

The Earl of Sandwich. 

Hyde, Earl of Clarendon. 

Sir Josiah Child. 

Thomas Chiffinch, closet-keeper to Charles the Second j 
besides a great number of other people of note, who are often 
mentioned by Pepys in his Diary. 

In addition to the above, the ledgers show the accounts 
of the East India Company ; the Goldsmiths Company, and 
other City Companies ; Sir Thomas Vyner and Sir Robert 
Vyner, the goldsmiths ; Thomas Wood of Littleton ; and 
John Houblon, afterwards Sir John Houblon, Lord Mayor 
and first Governor of the Bank of England, upon the site ot 
whose house the present Bank of England was erected. All 
the goldsmiths of that time kept accounts with Backwell's for 
clearing purposes, as they likewise did with Blanchard and 
Child at the same period. 

After the closing of the Exchequer, in 1672, Alderman 
Backwell retired to Holland, where he died in 1679, 

His son, Tyrringham, married Elizabeth, eldest daughter 
of Sir Francis Child, by whom he had two sons, Bameby

and William. They both went into Child's bank, and 
became partners. The latter, leaving Child's in 1756^ 
started a bank of his own in Pall Mall. (See Devaynes.) 

Backwell & Co. (See Devaynes.) 

Bank of England (The) 

Was founded in 1 694. It grew out of a loan of ;£"!, 200,000 
advanced to the Government of the day for the public service. 
The idea of forming a National Bank originated with Mr. 
William Paterson, an enterprising Scotchman, who com- 
menced his exertions for the establishment of such an insti- 
tution as early as 1691. 

The Bank was incorporated into a Society on the 27 th 
July, 1694, and styled the Governor and Company of the 
Bank of England. It was enacted that the management 
and government of the corporation should be committed to 
the Governor and twenty-four Directors, to be elected between 
the 25th day of March and the 25th day of April in each 
year, from among the duly qualified members of the Com- 
pany. The qualification for Governor is ;£'4ooo stock; 
Deputy Governor, ;£'3ooo ; and Director, ;^2ooo. 

On the I St January, 1695, the Bank of England com- 
menced active operations at Grocer's Hall, in the Poultry ; 
and on nth February in the same year, the following adver- 
tisement appeared in the " London Gazette " : — 

" The Court of Directors of the Bank of England hereby 
give notice that they have empowered their cashiers, Mr. 
Thoma? Speed, Mr. Robert Hedges, and Mr. Thomas 
Madolees, and one of them and no other, to give notes on 
behalf of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England, 
either for pa)maent of money or bills, for which they are to 
be accountable." 

None of the notes issued by them at this time were for a 
less sum than twenty pounds. The Bank also commenced 
to discount bills of exchange, usually between 4J and 6 per 
cent. 

In May 1695, they advertised in the "Gazette" that they 
would advance money on pawns. 

As early as August 15 th, 1695, the Bank called in their 
" marbled notes," some of them having beem forged. 

The first Governor was Sir John Houblon, who was Lord 
Mayor in 1695, and a Lord of the Admiralty. He was the 
son of James Houblon, an eminent London merchant, re-

markable for his piety and plainness ; of whom there is 
frequent mention by Pepys in his Diary. His surviving 
representative is Mr, John Archer Houblon of Hallingbury 
in Essex; 

The Bank of England stopped payment in 1696, during 
the great recoinage, owing in a great measure to the failure 
of the Land Bank ; when Bank notes fell to a heavy discount 
In June 1797, they were at 13 and 14 per cent discount. 
Mr. H. D. Macleod, writing to the " Daily News " on the 
subject of Banks of Issue on 8th May 1875, says : "In 1697 
a statute was passed to increase the capital of the Bank, and 
it was enacted that, during the continuance of the Bank of 
England, no other bank, or any other corporation, society, 
fellowship-company, or constitution in the nature of a bank, 
should be erected or established, permitted, suffered, coun- 
tenanced or allowecl by Act o^ Parliament within England." 

This clause only refers to Banks established by Act of 
Parliament ; it did not forbid any private bank from existing, 
any issuing notes, or consisting of any number of partners. 
There were numerous private banks* issuing notes in London; 
and, if they had chosen, they might have assumed any num- 
ber of partners, as many as the Bank of England itself. 

It did not take long to get the money that was required to 
start the Bank ; ten days seem to have sufficed. In return 
for the loan of ;£"!, 2 00,000, Government guaranteed to pay 
the Bank of England annually, the sum of ;£'ioo,ooo; which 
was 8 per cent, upon the capital ; and an additional ;£'4ooo 
a year for the expenses of management 

Capitalists indeed evinced great eagerness to invest their 
surplus money, as appears from the following interesting 
letter written to Sir Francis Child by the first Duke of 
Leeds, dated 25th June, 1694 : " Sir, I am informed that the 
subscription to the Bank do fill so fast that there is att this 
day neare ;£^7oo,ooo subscribed, so that it must now neces- 
sanly be a bank : I therefore desire that you will subscribe 
foure thousand pounds for mee, and pay in one thousand 
pounds on my account as the Act directs." 

There is another curious letter written about the same 
period by Mr. Locke to a friend at Amsterdam, which I 
quote from Mr. Martin's " Stories of Banks and Bankers " : — 
" Your friend J. F. (John Furley) has taken ;£3oo to the 

* Francis Child and Co. issued notes at this time.

new lank, which has already got a capital of ;£"!, 000,000. I 

shall myself subscribe ;^Soo at once, andit will be full to-night" 

After the crisis of 1696, in order to prevent any further 

suspension of money payments, the capital was increased to 

;^2,20I,I7I. 

Were I to write a full account of the Bank of England, it 
would occupy far more space than I have at my disposal. 
Those who desire to study its constitution and various 
charters, and the several events connected with this great 
institution, should consult the " History of the Bank of 
England," by John Francis, a most valuable, readable, and 
useful book, replete with anecdote ; Lawson's " History of 
Banking ;" Macleod's " Theory and Practice of Banking ;" 
" The Bank of England," by the author of the " People's 
Blue Book ;" and other works. I content myself by giving 
a few of the principal events. 

The Charter was renewed in 1697 until 171 1 ; in 1708 it 
was further continued to 1733 ; in 17 12 to 1743 ; in 1742 to 
1765; in 1763 to 1786; in 1781 to 1812 ; in 1800 to 1833 ; 
in 1 833 to 1855 j and in 1844 to ist August 1855, and longer, 
if the debt due from the public to the Bank (;Ji 1,015,100) 
with interest &c., be not paid after due notice. The Bank 
suspended cash payments in 1797. 

On the 26th February of that year the "Gazette" announced 
that a French frigate had landed troops in Wales; the general 
alarm thereupon being intense. 

There was every prospect of a run, on 27th February, 
1797 ; when an Order of Council was issued, prohibiting the 
Directors from paying cash for their notes. Parliament con- 
curred on this point ; and the Restriction Act, prohibiting 
the Bank from paying cash except for sums under twenty 
shillings, was passed at this time. 

On the 6th April, 1797, through this panic, the 3 per cent, 
consols had fallen to 47 J, and Bank stock to i2if ; whereas 
in March 1792, consols were at^7|, and Bank stock at 219. 

Ten pound notes were first issued in 1759; five pound 
notes in 1794; and ;^i and £^2 notes in 1797; the last 
two subsequently discontinued, owing to so many forgeries 
having been perpetrated. 

The first forgery of a Bank of England note was in 1758. 
It was committed by a linen-draper of the name of Vaughan, 
living in Stafford, who was convicted and executed. 

The business of the Bank continued to be carried on in

Grocer's Hall in the Poultry until sth June, 1734, when they 
moved into their new premises then just completed. 

The following account of the new premises of the Bank, 
which occupy the site of the house and garden of Sir John 
Houblon, is taken from Lawson's " History of Banking " : — 
" The original extent of the Bank comprehended the site of 
the house and garden formerly belonging to Sir John Hou- 
blon, one of the first directors, and was comparatively a small 
structure, quite invisible towards the street, the entrance 
being through an arched court, surrounded by many other 
buildings : viz., a church called St. Christopher le Stocks,* 
three taverns in Bartholomew Lane, and two on the south 
side, and upwards of twenty private houses ; the whole of 
whicli have been removed." 

The garden in the Bank, which is now enclosed, was the 
original churchyard of the Church of St. Christopher ; and 
one of the clerks, of the name of Jenkins, who was six feet 
six inches in height, was interred within it, to save his corpse 
from the resurrectionists. 

The original bknk was built from the designs of Mr. George 
Sampson, the east and west wings being added by Sir Robert 
Taylor, between 1766 and 1786 ; and Sir John Soane after- 
wards made considerable alterations. 

The Bank of England joined the Clearing House in April 
1864. 

Bank of London 

Was established about 1856, at 52, Threadneedle Street 
and 450, West Strand. It had a paid-up capital amounting 
to ;^4co,ooo, and a reserve fund of ;^302,324. 

At the period of its failure in 1866, its liabilities amounted 
to ;£^4,335,877. Its business was taken over by the Con-

The date at which the banking business of Messrs. Barclay, 
Bevan, Tritton, Twells and Co., was founded is uncertain ; 
but it certainly was prior to the year 1729. 

The books of the firm, which are preserved from that time, 
show that its commencement must have been considerably -. 
earlier, the business being then in full operation, and older 
ledgers being referred to. In fact, in the previous year one

of the partners, Joseph Freame, had purchased the freehold 
premises in Lombard Street, at the comer of George Yard, 
from one Currier, " citizen and a scrivener," who had in all 
probability conducted the same business on the same spot up 
to this time. The sign of the banking house in 1 7 28 was " The 
Black Spread Eagle/'* 

Joseph Freame, who was described in 1728 as "Citizen 
and Goldsmith," was in partnership with Thomas Gould 
under the style of Gould and Freame until 1736 ; when James 
Barclay took the place of J. Gould, and the firm became 
Freame and Barclay. In 1768 Silvanus Bevan joined ; and 
two years later the name of Freame disappeared on the death 
of Joseph Freame in 1770, his son John having died in 1762, 
In 1786 John Henton Tuitton became a partner; and from 
that date up to his death in 1833 the style of the firm was 
Barclay, Tritton, Bevan and Co. Since then the names ran as 
Barclay, Bevan, Tritton and Co. until 1865, when the business 
of Messrs. Spooner, Atwood and Co. was taken over, and the 
name of Twells was added ; Mr. Philip Twells, one of the 
present members for the City of London, then joining the 
firm. 

The James Barclay, whose name first appears as a banker 
in 1736, was the son of David Barclay, and the grandson of 
Robert Barclay, the "Apologist" The main line of the 
Scotch family of Barclay of Mather and Urie, whose pedigree 
is traced back to Saxon times, and who have intermarried with 
the descendants of Edward III. of England and Robert III. 
of Scotland, was carried on, in default of male issue by him, 
through his young brother Alexander ; and it is now repre- 
sented by Robert Barclay of Bury Hill, a member of the firm 
of Barclay, Perkins and Co. The name of Silvanus Bevan 
(the elder) appears among the clients of the firm in 1728. 

The family is of Welsh extraction, and trace their pedigree 
even further back than the Barclays. 

David Barclay, the father (by his first wife) of James and 
Alexander, was a merchant in Cheapside, and was also one 
of the principal connections of the early banking house. He 

* Messrs. Barclay and Co. no doubt occupied the old premises of " The 
Black Spread Eagle," afterwards numbered in 1770 No. 56, Lombard Street, 
where they remained until 1781 ; when they moved to their present premises. 
No. 50, Lombard Street, which had been occupied by Messrs. Gines and 
Atkinson, bankers, until that year. The old sien of No. 50 is the Rose 
and Crown. A house known by any sign, usual^ retained it under a sue* 
cession of occupants, without regard to the trade or calling of the newcomer. 



LONDON BANKERS. 1 1 

is recorded to have received successively on Lord Mayor's 
Day, at his house in Cheapside, Queen Anne, George I., 
George II., and George III. David and John, his two sons 
by his second wife, Priscilla Freame, succeeded to the bank- 
ing business. The former had only one child, a daughter, 
married to Richard Gumey, father of the late Hudson Gumey, 
and the latter was father-in-law to John Henton Tritton, and 
great grandfather to the present Joseph Gurney Barclay. It 
is well perhaps to add that the present members of the firm 
are all the direct descendants of the above-named gentleman, 
and that the banking-house is still at the comer of George 
Yard, Lombard Street, on the site of the Old Black Spread 
Eagle of 1728. 

[For the foregoing account I am indebted to Mr. J. H, 
Tritton of that firm.] 

The earliest cash note bearing the name of Freame and 
Barclay, in the possession of Messrs. Child and Co., is of the 
year 1734, and is witnessed by G. Nelson. 

A fact worth noticing is that a Mr. Silvanus Bevan, who 
was probably an ancestor of the Mr. Bevan in the firm of 
Messrs. Barclay and Co., banked with Child^s in the year 
1704. I have seen a draft upon the latter firm drawn by him, 
dated from Swanzey — (sic). 

The following amusing anecdote relating to Mr. David 
Barclay, I transcribe verbatim from Lawson's " History of 
Banking " : — 

*^ On the occasion of the state visit of George HI. to the 
City, on the first Lord Mayor's day after his accession to the 
throne, and when the cavalcade had reached Cheapside, the 
acclamations of the people were so great * as to pierce the air 
with their shouts ;' added to which, the dismal noise made by 
the creaking of the various signs which hung across the streets 
caused one of the horses attached to the King's carriage to 
become very restive and unmanageable when opposite Bow 
Church, causing considerable confiision to the procession 
and alarm to their Majesties. 

" A certain Quaker named David Barclay, a linendraper in 
Cheapside, who was viewing the procession from the balcony 
of his first-floor window, perceiving the embarrassed situation 
of the King and Queen, descended to the street. At this 
moment the procession halted, and our friend approaching 
the carriage addressed the King, saying, *Wilt thee alight. 



12 A HANDBOOK Ol* 

George, and thy wife Charlotte, and come into my house and 
view the Mayor's show?* The King, who had on many 
occasions before he came to the throne evinced a strong par- 
tiality for Quakers, and who, from the plainness of his manner, 
would no doubt have been one himself, had he not been 
bom to a Throne, condescended to accept the invitation of 
the worthy linendraper ; and in the balcony of the first-floor 
of the house exactly opposite Bow Church the King and 
Queen stood during the remainder of the procession. 

" Our friend David introduced to their Majesties the whole 
of his family. His eldest son, Robert, who was then a young 
man about twenty years of age, received especial notice from 
their Majesties. On their taking their leave to proceed to 
Guildhall, his Majesty said, ' David, let me see thee at Saint 
James's next Wednesday, and bring thy son Robert with 
thee.' Accordingly David Barclay and his son Robert at- 
tended the lev^e ; and on his approaching the royal presence, 
the King, throwing aside all regal restraint, descended from 
the Throne, and, giving the Friend a hearty shake of the 
hand, welcomed him to Saint James's. He said many kind 
things both to the father and son : among the rest, he asked 
David what he intended to do with Robert, and without wait- 
ing for a reply, said : * Let him come here, and I will pro- 
vide him with honourable and profitable employment.' 

" The strict and cautious Quaker, with many apologies, and 
with much humility, requested permission to reject the pro- 
posal, adding : ' I fear the air of the Court of your Majesty 
would not agree with my son,' 

" The King, who had seldom witnessed a similar rejection 
of intended royal favour, said : * Well, David, well, well ; you 
know best, you know best ; but you must not omit to let me 
see you occasionally at Saint James's.' 

" Soon after this, David Barclay saw his son Robert es- 
tablished as a banker in Lombard Street, who instead ot 
becoming a courtier, a position for which Nature never 
intended him, became the founder of one of the most eminent 
banking firms of the present day." 

The following are the changes that have taken place in the 

style of the firm, as deduced from the list of bankers in the 

Directories. 
In 1736 Freame and BaVclay. 

1759 Freame, Barclay and Freame. 

1766 Freame, Smith and Bening (the latter had been a clerk in the 
firm for some years).

1834 Barclay, Bevan, Tritton and Co. until 1865, when'the amalga- 
mation took place, and the style was altered to Barclay^ 
Bevan, Tritton, Twells and Co. ; the firm consisting of, 

Robert Cooper Lee Bevan. 

Henry Tritton. 

Joseph Gumey Barclay. 

Joseph Tritton. 

Francis Augustus Bevan. 

Philip Twells. 

Henry John Tritton. 

Robert Barclay. 

Joseph Herbert Tritton. 

Barentine Sir Dm, goldsmith, was a refounder of the 
Goldsmith's Hall about 1410, and Lord Mayor in 1391 and 

1413- 

Barnard and Co., 1814 — 52. (See Dimsdale.) 
Bamett, Hoare and Co., 

This is probably one of the oldest banking businesses in 
London, as they occupy the site of the premises known by 
the sign of the " Black Horse,'* which continues to be the 
sign of the present firm. Mr. Samuel Hoare has favoured 
me with an impression of that sign done in sealing-wax. It 
represents a horse prancing, with fis head turned to the right, 
and with flowing mane and tail. ^ 

Upon reference to the Little London Directory for 1677, 
it will be seen that a goldsmith of the name of Humph. 
Stocks was at the Black Horse, in Lombard Street. 

Now it appears from Pepys' Diary that Mr. Stokes, as he was 
pleased to call him, was in existence in his time fully twelve 
years earlier. He was probably Samuel Pepys' own gold- 
smith, and it was with him most likely that he kept his private 
account. That he bought his plate, &c., of him is proved 
by the following extracts from his Diary. 

The account Pepys kept with Alderman Backwell looks 
more like an official one than one of a private character. 

Under date January 10, 1665, he writes : — 

"Seeing and saluting Mrs. Stokes, my little goldsmith's 
wife in Paternoster Row and there bespoken a silver chafing 



14 A HANDBOOK OF 

dish for warming plates." It would thus appear that he was 
formerly in Paternoster Row; and on 2nd September, 1666, 
the same authority states : " And among others, I now saw 
my litttle goldsmith Stokes receiving some friend's goods, 
whose house itself was burned the day after." On the 12 th 
November, 1666, Pepys records : "This day I received 450 
pieces of gold more of Mr. Stokes, but cost me 22^ change ; 
but I am well contented with it, I having now nearly ;^28oo 
in gold, and will not rest until I get full ^3000." Again, on 
the i8th December, 1667, he writes: "To look after the 
providing of ;^6o for Mr. Moore towards the answering of 
my Lord Sandwich's bill of exchange, he being come to be con- 
tented with my lending him ;£^6o, in part of it, which pleases 
me, and this, which I do do, I hope to secure out of plate, 
which was delivered into my custody of my Lords', which I did 
get Mr. Stokes, the goldsmith, last night to weigh at my house, 
and there is enough to secure ;£'ioo." 

Pepys evidently had a view to the main chance. 

Nothing further can be ascertained of Stocks or of the 
Black Horse until the year 1740, when I find by old papers, 
cheques, &c., that Messrs. John Bland and Son were at the 
Black Horse, in Lombard Street. 1761 is the first year in 
which the name of Bamett is met with in conjunction with 
this firm, when it was Bland, Bamett and Co. In 1763 it 
became Bland, Bamett and Bland. In 1766 the style of the 
firm was Bland and Bamett In 1770 the sign of the Black 
Horse became known as 62, Lombard Street. And about 
1772 — 3 they assumed a fresh partner in the person of Mr. 
Samuel Hoare ; when the firm became Bland, Bamett and 
Hoare. The present Mr. Samuel Hoare (who is the fifth of his 
name) informs me that his family came from Cork about 1 730. 
In 1768 Samuel Hoare was apprenticed to Henry Gumey at 
Norwich. He was anxious to become a banker, so he looked 
through the London Directory, and there he found that only 
one bank in the list had two partners, that of Bland and 
Bamett. He offered himself to them, and he became a 
partner. He was the son of Samuel Hoare, a partner in the 
firm of Guraell and Hoare, merchants, who lived in Broad 
Street, where he had a " pleasant garden." 

In 1780 Mr. Hill was admitted into the firm ; in 1790 Mr. 
Bland's name disappeared fi-om it, and Mr. Barnett, junior, 
was admitted as junior, the firm then standing as Bamett, 
Hoare, Hill and Bamett. In the year 1800 the style of the 



LONDON BANKEkS, IS 

firm changed to Hoare, Hill and Bamett ; and in 1804, Mr. 
Hoare, junior, became junior partner. The list of 1808 
shews that Mr. Hill had left them, and the firm had become 
Hoare, Bamett, Hoare. and Co. In 1826 the style of the 
firm changed again to Bamett, Hoare and Co. ; which style 
continued until 1864, when the old banking firm of Messrs. 
i Hanbury, Lloyds and Co. amalgamated with them ; and 
thenceforth it has been known as Bametts, Hoares, Han- 
burys and Lloyd, the business being conducted in both 
houses, which adjoin, i.e., 60 and 62, Lombard Street, the 
former being that of Messrs. Hanburys. 
The present firm consists of, 

Henry Bamett. 
Philip Hanbury. 
Osgood Hanbury. 
Charles George Bamett. 
Samuel Hoare. 
George W. Bamett. 
Edward Brodie Hoare. 
Richard Borradaile Lloyd.

Bland, John and Co., 1741- (See Barnett.) 

Bland, Gray and Co., 1759. (See Smith and Wright.) 

Bloxham and Co. 

This firm originated in the year 1795, when Messrs. 
Wilkinson, Polhill, Pinhorn, Bloxham and Bulcock started a 
banking house at St. Margaret*s-hill, Southwark. In the next 
year Mr. Pinhorn retired from the firm to start a firesh one, 
for particulars of which see " Young." The style of this firm 
in 1796 was Wilkinson, Polhill, Bloxham and Bulcock. In 
1799 it was Wilkinson, Bloxham, Bulcock, Wilkinson and 
Taylor; and in 1805 it became Sir Matthew Bloxham, Wilkin- 
son, Taylor and Bloxham. They were then carrying on 
business at 27, Gracechurch-street, where they remained until 
1809, in which year I believe they failed. 

Boldero and Co, 

This banking business was established by Thomas Minors, 



i6 A HANDBOOK OF 

in Lombard-street His name first appeared in the list of 
bankers in the year 1738 ; and he was probably a goldsmith, 
in the earlier part of his career. In 1754 the Directory in- 
forms us he took a partner of the name of Boldero ; and the 
style of the firm became Minors and Boldero, at the Vine in 
Lombard-street. In 1763 the firm became Boldero, Carter, 
and Co. ; and in 1770 a disunion appears to have taken place 
as the Directory shows that Boldero, Carter, Bamston, Snaith 
and Carter moved to 5, Mansion-house Street, while 
Boldero, Kendell, Adey and Co. remained in Lombard-street, 
at the old house, which was then numbered 77. In 1800 
the name of Adey disappeared from the partnership; and in 
the year following I find by the Directory that a new firm had 
been started at 22, Old Bond-street, under the style of Adey, 
Macgeorge and Co. ; which became extinct before 1805. 

In 1787 the firm of Boldero, Adey and Co. left Lombard- 
street, and removed to 30, Comhill. In 1801, after Mr, 
Adey retired from the partnership, the style of the firm be- 
came Boldero, Lushington, Boldero and Lushington. This 
firm ceased to exist in 181 2. 

As to the other firm, which severed its connection with the 
above, many changes in the names of the partners took place. 
In 1786 it was Boldero, Snaith, Sikes and Boldero; and in 
1790 the style of the firm became Sikes, Snaith and Snaith. 

Sikes, Snaith and Co. continued to be the style of the firm 
until 14th December, 1825, when they stopped payment. 

Bond, Sons, and Co. 

Was established about 1791, at 2, Change Alley, by John 
Bond and Son. In 1805 they took a partner, and the firm 
became John Bond, Sons and Pattisall, which continued to 
be the style until their extinction in 1831. 

iosanquet and Co. 

The firm of Bosanquet, Salt, Harman, Salt, Bosanquet and 
Whatman originated (according to particulars kindly supplied 
to me by that firm) between the years 1770 — 80, when the 
style of it was Bowles, Beachcroft and Reeves. But I fail 
to find any mention of them in the Post Office Directory 
before the year 1796 ; when the style of the firm appears to 
have been Bowles, Beachcroft, Brown, Reeves, Collins and 
Co., who were carrying on business at 18, Exchange Alley, 
romhill. 



LONDON BANKERS, 1 7 

About 1800 Mr. Samuel Bosanquet, who had till then been 
a partner with Messrs, Foster, Lubbock and Co., left that 
firm and entered into partnership with Messrs. Beachcroft 
and Reeves, who had been partners in the firm of Bowles, 
Beachcroft and Co. The style of the firm in 1801 appears 
as Bosanquet, Beachcroft and Reeves, at No. 73, Lombard 
Street. The firm of Messrs. Bowles, Brown, Ogden, Cobb 
and Co., from which Messrs. Beachcroft and Reeves se- 
ceded, appears to have undergone another change in that 
year, a division being recorded therein, the particulars of 
which will be found under the head of Brown. 

In 1810 the firm became Bosanquet, Beachcroft, Pitt and 
Anderdon. In 18 17 it was Bosanquet, Pitt, Anderdon and 
Franks. In 1822 the present Mr. James Whatman Bosan- 
quet joined the firm. In 1843 Mr. Samuel Bosanquet died ; 
and in 1845 Mr. William Godfrey Whatman joined the firm, 
and shortly afterwards Mr. John Harman. 

In 1867 Mr. Franks retired, and the firm amalgamated with 
the old Staffordshire Bank of Messrs. Stevenson, Salt and 
Co., and the style became Bosanquet, Salt, Whatman, Har- 
man, Salt and Bosanquet. 

The bank of Messrs. Stevenson, Salt and Co. appears to 
have been established by Mr. William Stevenson at 85. 
Queen Street, Cheapside, in 1788 ; and about 1799 he 
moved to 80, Lombard Street. From 1801 to 18 18 they were 
known as Messrs. Stevenson and Salt, when they moved to 
No. 20, Lombard Street. In 1839 the firm became Steven- 
son, Salt and Sons; and on the ist June, 1867, they 
amalgamated with Messrs. Bosanquet and Co. 

I have been favoured by Mr. John Salt with a copy of a 
circular, which was issued by Messrs. Stevenson, Salt and 
Co., of Stafford, to their customers, when they had deter- 
mined to amalgamate their country business with Lloyd's 
Banking Co. (Limited) ; the existing representatives of the 
firms of Messrs. Lloyds and Co., Messrs. Moilliet and Sons,, 
and Messrs. P. and H. Williams. 

From that document I learn that " the firm of Stevenson 
and Co. is said to have been established by Mr. Stevenson,, 
an ancestor of the present Salt family on the maternal side, 
in the year 1737. This was a very early date for the estab- 
lishment of a country bank. 

It is mentioned in " Macleod's Dictionary of Political 

2 



i8 A HANDBOOK OF 

Economy," that in the year 1750 there were not more than 
twelve banks established out of London. A great number of 
private banks were formed in the country between the year 
1750 and the close of that century. 

The Stafford Bank has never been without a member of 
the Stevenson or of the Salt family in its management For 
many years the Webb family also have been associated with 
it. 

The firm of Stevenson, Salt, and Sons, of 20, Lombard 
Street, which continues its operations as a private family 
bank, has always been exclusively confined to the Stevenson 
and Salt family. It was established somewhat later than the 
Stafford Bank, and had a valuable country connection in the 
South of England. 

This bank was at one time given up in consequence, we 
believe, of a dispute between two brothers of the Stevenson 
family. The bank was shortly after re-opened, with as much 
of its old connection as could be recovered by Mr. John 
Stevenson Salt, the father of the present Mr. Salt, of Weeping 
Cross. Mr. J. S. Salt was for many years the head of the 
London and Stafford banking houses. On his death they 
were separated, and continued separate until the death of 
Mr. John Salt, of 29, Gordon Square, early in the year 1865, 
when they were at once united in consequence of the limited 
number of partners living. Of course they are now again 
separated. Many persons regret the loss of the old and 
familiar name of Stevenson, Salt and Co. from the list of 
Staffordshire firms, for the bank has always enjoyed the per- 
sonal attachment of its supporters in a remarkable degree. 
Yet it is probable that the wisest course has been taken for 
the interests both of the partners and of their clients. 

During the last twenty years banking has assumed a new 
form. The vast activity and development both of the in- 
ternal and foreign trade of the country — the enormous trans- 
actions in the monetary system ; the vigorous competition 
existing in all branches of trade ; the delicate and uncertain 
condition of the money markets ; the tendency of all com- 
mercial enterprise to achieve greater success in combined 
and extended operations, and the general tone of public 
feeling in favour of joint stock trading — are gradually, but 
surely carrying the banking business out of the hands of pri- 
vate individuals, and placing it on a wider basis, and on a 



LONDON BANKERS. 19 

system more congenial to the habits and feelings of the 
day. 

Moreover, private bankers, who have usually been gentle- 
men of fortune and position, though ready enough formerly 
to conduct and to reap the fruits of a quiet, old-fashioned 
business, hesitate, not unnaturally, to sacrifice time and com- 
fort, and to incur the risks and anxieties which appear to be 
incidental to the financial business of the present times. 
The present firm consists of : — 

James Whatman Bosanquet. 

Thomas Salt, M.P. 

John Harman. 

John Charles Salt. 

Bernard Tindal Bosanquet. 

George Dunbar Whatman. 

Souverie and Co. 

This firm appears to have been started in the year 1813, 
at 33, Craven Street, Strand, by the Hon. P. Pleydell Bouverie 
(who had been a clerk in the bank of Messrs. Bosanquet and 
Co.) and E. Antrobus. 

In 1827 it became Bouverie and Lefevre ; and in 1830 they 
moved to 1 1, Haymarket. Two years later the firm consisted 
of the Hon. P. Pleydell Bouverie, Henry Norman, and James 
Gordon Murdock. In 185 1 the style of the firm was Bouverie, 
Murdock and Bouverie; in 1853 Bouverie, Murdock, Bouverie 
and James ; and in 1856 they amalgamated with Messrs. 
Ransom and Co. under the style of Ransom, Bouverie and Co. 

Sowes. 

Sir Martin Bowes, a goldsmith of some renown, flourished 
during the reigns of Henry VIII., Edward VI., Mary and 
Elizabeth. 

He is stated by Herbert, in his " History of the Gold- 
smiths' Company," to have lent Henry VIII., in 1544, the 
sum of ;£^3oo, which now-a-days appears a very insignificant 
5um for so great a monarch to borrow. 

He was agenerous benefactor to the Goldsmiths' Company ; 
among other gifts, he bequeathed them a property situate 
in Lombard Street, now No 67, the banking-house of Messrs. 
Glyn, Mills and Co. In the Committee-room of Goldsmiths* 
Hall is a portrait of Sir Martin Bowes, with the cup he 
bequeathed them. Queen Elizabeth is said to have drunk 
out of it at her coronation.

Brown, Cobb and Co. 

The firm of Messrs. Bowles, Beachcroft, Brown, Reeves 
and Collins appears to have started|as bankers about the year 
1796, at 18, Exchange Alley, Comhill, where they remained 
until 1800, when a dissolution of partnership took place ; the 
Directory showing that Messrs. Beachcroft and Reeves re- 
tired, and joined partnership with Mr. Samuel Bosanquet, 
who left the firm of Messrs. Foster, Lubbock and Co. in the 
same year. 

In 1 80 1 Messrs. Bowles, Brown, Ogden, Cobb and Stokes 
were at 67, Lombard Street ; but in the year following another 
dissolution took place, and Messrs. Bowles and Ogden left 
the firm to start a fresh concern, under the style of Messrs. 
Bowles, Brickwood, Ogden and Wyndham at 11, Lombard 
Street; which in 1808 became Messrs. Brickwood, Morgan 
^ and Starkey, who ceased to exist after 1810. Messrs. Brown, 
Cobb and Stokes, from whom they seceded in 1802, continued 
the business in the same premises, i.e., 67, Lombard Street, 
and afterwards in No. 66 — until 1816 ; after which date they 
cannot be further traced. 

Brown, Collinson and Tritton, 1781. 

This firm was founded by Henton, Brown and Son, 
about 1748; at least, that is the earliest date that can be 
found for them. In 1754, it was Brown and Son. The 
style of the firm, as shown by the Royal Annual Kalendar 
of 1765, was Brown, Henton and Son, who were carrying on 
business in Lombard Street, facing the Castle Tavern. In 
1770 this house was numbered 58, Lombard Street, and tlie 
style of the firm was altered to Brown and Collinson ; in 
1778 the London Directory shows that it was Brown, Collin- 
son andTritton,* which firm appeared for the last time in the 
list of bankers in 1781. 

• It would be interesting to know whether this Mr. Tritton was John 
Henton Tritton who joined the firm of Barclay, Bevan and Co., in 1785.

Brown, Janson and Co., 

This firm originated about 1813, when it was established 
by Messrs. Thomas and Stephen Nicholson, Janson and Co., 
at 75, Threadneedle Street. In 1815 they moved to their 
present house 32, Abchurch Lane. In 1823 the style ot 
the firm became Messrs Brown, Janson and Co., which it 
has been ever since. 

It consists of the following partners : 

Samuel James Brown. 
Henry Oxley. 
James Walker Oxley. 
Thomas Harrison. 
John Whitaker Cooper. 
Basil Braithwaite. 

Brown, John, and Co., 

Were established at 25, Abchurch Lane, about 1851, so far 
as can be proved by the directories.

Bruce, Simson and Co., 

This banking firm was started in 1802 by Messrs Were, 
Bruce, Reed, Simson and Taylor, at 2, Bartholomew Lane. 

The name of Reed does not appear in any subsequent list. 
In 18 1 2 the style was changed to Bruce, Simson, Freen and 
Mackenzie. During 181 7 and 18 18 this firm is not found 
among the list of bankers. They may have suspended pay- 
ment ? In 18 1 9 the firm of Bruce, Simson and Co. is found in 
the Directory as bankers carrying on business at No. 9, Austin 
Friars. They continued until 1825, when they ceased to exist. 

Bolt (James), Son and Co. 

First appear in the London Director}'- as bankers in 1841, 
at 85 and Zd, Cheapside ; the firm consisting of James Bult, 
James Philip Bult, and George Frederic Bult. They do not 
appear in the Directory' after 1852. 

Call, Marten and Co. 

This firm originated in 1773 as Pybus, Hyde, Dorset and 



22 A HANDBOOK OF 

Cockell, at 148, New Bond Street In the list of bankers for 
1779 the name of Hyde does not appear, but Mr. Pybus, 
junior, was admitted as junior partner. In 1782 the firm 
consisted of Pybus, Dorset, Cockell, Pybus and Hale. 

The list of 1785 shows that the name of Call had taken the 
place of Dorset (who resigned to unite with Sir H. Mack- 
worth in forming a new bank) as second partner ; and in this 
year they are described of 148, Old Bond Street. 

In 1 79 1 the firm became Pybus, Call, Grant and Hale ; in 
1802, Pybus, Grant and Hale; and in 18 10, Pybus, Call,. 
Marten and Hale. In 18 14 the style of the firm was changed 
to Marten, Hale and Call ; and in 1816 to Marten, Call and 
Arnold. In 182 1 they were at 25, Old Bond Street, where 
they had probably been since 1785 ; No. 148 most likely 
being an error. 

Sir W. P. Call (Bart.), Arnold and Marten, was the style of 
the firm in 1827. In and after 1830 the style of the firm 
again changed to Call, Marten and Co., by which it was 
known until March 1865, when they amalgamated with Messrs^ 
Herries, Farquhar and Co., of St James' Street. 

Campbell, George, 1753—56. (See Coutts.) 
Campbell and Bruce, 1748—52. (See Coutts.) 
Castell, Powell and Co. 

This business was established about the year 1759 in 
Birchin Lane, by John Castell and Son, In 1763 the style 
of the firm had been altered to Castells and Whately. The 
London Directory of 177 1 shows that they assumed a partner 
of the name of Powell, the firm thus becoming Castell^ 
Whately and Powell, carrying on business at 66, Lombard/ 
Street. In 1785 it became Castell, Powell, Summer, Powell 
and Willson. In 1798 Mr. Summer's name disappeared from 
the firm, and it then became styled Castell, Powell, Son and 
Wilson (sometimes spelt Willson). It is not, seen among 
bankers after the year 1802 ; but on April 28, 1807, S. Cas- 
tell and W. Powell paid a dividend. 

Caswall and Mount. 

This business, established in Lombard Street, originated in 
the firm of Turner,* Caswall and Co., whose earliest date 
appears upon a cash note of 1 7 18. The style was Sir George . 

* Turner and Tookie were keeping running cashes at the Fleece in Lom- 
bard Street in 1677 ; and they might have been their ancestors ! 



LONDON BANKERS, 23 

Caswall and Co in 172 1 ; and John Caswall and Mount in 
1728, which continued to be the style of the firm until 1740, 
which is the last mention I can find of them. They may 
have continued for some years after tliat, but, owing to there 
being no London Directories in the British Museum of the 
dates between 1740 and 1754, they cannot be further traced. 

Central Bank of London (Limited),

branches. (See Lists at the end.) 

Challis and Son 

Appear to have established themselves at 37, West Smith- 
field about 185 1. In 1864 this business was merged into 
the Albion Bank, which failed in 187 1. The London Joint 
Stock Bank appears to have lost no time in opening a branch 
in the Metropolitan Cattle Market. ' 

Chambers, James, 1707. (See Gosling.) 
Chambers and Usborne, 1734—41. (See Gosling.) 
Chambers and Son. 

This firm was established by Messrs. Chambers, Franks, 
Hercy and Birch in 1769, at 152, New Bond Street. It 
became Chambers, Hercy and Birch in 1776. The style of 
the firm in 1785 became Hercy, Birch and Hobbs. In 1791 
the name of Chambers appeared as that of the third partner. 
In 1796 it became Birch, Chambers and Hobbs. In 18 12 
the firm consisted of Birch and Chambers, at 160, New Bond 
Street ; and in 1822 it was Chambers and Son, which firm 
ceased to exist in 1825. 

Chatteris and Co., 18 10 — 20. (See Whitmore.) 
Chechestre, John de, 

An eminent goldsmith and citizen of London, maker of 
the King's Privy Seal, and of the wedding jewellery for the 
marriage of the King s son and the Lady Blanche. 

He was Sheriff in 1357, and Lord Mayor and King's 
Escheator for the City of London in 1369, in which year the 
celebrated William Walworth was sheriff. He died in 1381, 
and by his will he left his tenement in the parish of St. John 
Zachary, and his shop in "the Chepe," at the comer of 
Friday Street, to his kinsman John French ; and the bulk of

the remainder of his property, including a tenement called 
the " Sarazynshede " he bequeathed to his wife Alicia, and 
after her decease to his son William Chichester. — " History 
of the family of Chichester," John C. Hotten, 1870. 

Cheque Bank (Limited). 

This institution which is altogether a new idea, was 
invented and originated by Mr. James Hertz, now managing 
director, in July, 1873. It has a guarantee fund of ;£^ioo,ooo 
invested in Consols. 

Mr. Hertz, writing to me on 20th July, 1875, says: — 

" We have turned over ;£"!, 200,000 this year, and have a 
balance in hand of ^^ 145,000." 

That speaks well for so young an undertaking. In giving 
an account of the objects aimed at in its establishment, I 
cannot do better than reproduce what has been written by 
themselves upon the subject. The following extracts I have 
taken from the first annual report : 

" It has been established on the principle of extending the 
advantages of banking to small transactions, and to the most 
numerous classes, to those persons who, from the smallness 
of the sums which they can at any one time command, have 
hitherto been unable to bank ; and to the numerous small 
transactions of wealthier persons, which are below the amount 
for which it has been customary to draw cheques, and which, 
if drawn, encumber a banking account with a multitude of 
small entries. 

" This is the first feature of novelty : and the soundness of 
the principle on which it is based is apparent from the ana- 
log}' of all commercial undertakings, which show that there is a 
great mine of profit to be worked by addressing one's self to 
the wants and requirements of the greatest number of persons. 

" As no Cheque Bank Cheque can be obtained from the 
bank until the maximum amount for which it can be filled 
up, and which is stamped on its face, has been deposited, 
cheques on this bank differ from those on all others in this 
most important particular ; — that they are certain to be paid 
on presentation. No inquiry into the means or standing of 
the person who draws them is necessary : they can be taken 
in payment, and can pass from one hand to another with the 
same confidence, because they have the same undoubted 
value, as a Bank of England note for the same amount. 

Another most important peculiarity of Cheque Bank 



LONDON BANKERS. 2$ 

Cheques remains to be noticed. Ordinary cheques must be 
presented immediately, or as soon as possible after they are 
received. If an ordinary cheque is not so presented — in due 
course, as it is called — the responsibility and risk of non- 
payment fall on the holder. 

" Although a balance sufficient to meet it may exist at the 
time of the drawing in the hands of the banker, there is 
nothing to prevent its being drawn out shortly afterwards by 
another cheque ; and the only security to the holder lies in 
instant presentation. 

" The Cheque Bank does not pretend to enter into compe- 
tition with other existing banks. It is based on a new sys- 
tem ; and, as it offers advantages hitherto unknown, it looks 
entirely to new and untried sources of profit. 

" Their intention is that these cheques shall gradually, but 
surely, supersede the whole system of Post-office orders 
throughout the country, and eventually, probably those in 
relation with foreign countries.'' 

There are no less than 984 banks who cash their cheques.

Chest, John, 

Goldsmith, residing in Chepe, 1429. 

Child and Co. 

This house originated in the goldsmith's business carried 
on for many years in Fleet Street, by a family of the name of 
Wheeler. 

The first record of a goldsmith of this name is met with in 
the Court Books of the Goldsmiths' Company as far back as 
1559 ; for which information my best thanks are due to Mr. 
Williams of that distinguished company. 

On the ist July, 1559, when the Goldsmiths' Company 
furnished agijard of honour from their livery to escort Queen 
Elizabeth through the, City on her way to Greenwich, the name 
of John Wheeler, Goldsmith, appears as one of the pykemen. 
He was then resident in Chepe ; his son went to Fleet-street. 
His name likewise occurs on many occasions up to October 
i8th, 1575, when he died. The name of John Wheeler, his 
son, also a goldsmith, occurs in the Parish Register of St. 
Dunstan's on the 3rd October, 1600, as follows: — "John 
Wheeler, Goldsmith, buryed." After him there were two of 
the name of William Wheeler, father and son, both gold- 
smiths, likewise in Fleet-street; the elder of whom, in the early 



26 A HANDBOOK OF 

part of the reign of Charles the First, moved from his old 
shop to y* Marygold, hitherto a tavern, next door to 
Temple Bar. There is very little to record of these Wheelers 
beyond the fact that they had an apprentice of the name 
of Robert Blanchard, and subsequently another of the name 
of Francis Child, who was a grandson of the old Wm Wheeler. 

In 1663 the elder William Wheeler died; and in the 
Court Book of the Goldsmiths' Company we find the follow- 
ing entry, proving that William Wheeler, jun., F. Child's 
uncle and father-in-law, continued as a goldsmith : — " 27th 
April, 1666 — William Wheeler, the sonne of William Wheeler, 
Goldsmith, deceased, upon the testimony of William Rawsoa 
and John Marryott, Goldsmiths, was sworn and made free by 
Patrimony and paid as of Custome." 

In 1676 the name of Wheeler is no more seen. The busi- 
ness was then in the hands of Robert Blanchard, as we find 
that he rented the Marygold for 61 years of John Land and 
Elizabeth Land. In the following year, 1677, when the 
Little London Directory was published, we find the names 
of Blanchard and Child keeping running cashes at y* 
Marygold. 

Francis Child, the industrious apprentice, married his 
cousin Elizabeth, only child of William Wheeler ; and Robert 
Blanchard married Child's mother. Thus, in 1681, at R. 
Blanchard's death, F. Child became possessed of the whole 
fortune of the Wheelers and Blanchard. 

Blanchard left ;^20o to the Goldsmiths' Company to pay 
;^4 a year each to two widows, the first as named in his will, 
and, as they should die, to such widows of good report (not 
under 50 years of age) as should be named hy the Assistants 
of the Goldsmiths. 

He likewise left a legacy of ;^ioo to Christ Church 
Hospital, and another ;^ioo to Bedlam Hospital. 

About July, 1 681, Francis Child took into partnership 
John Rogers. 

In Herbert's " Great City Companies " (vol. ii. p. 203) 
is a brief sketch of Francis Child, who, according to it, was 
the " junior of Sir Josiah Child by twelve years, and was 
apprenticed to William Wheeler, a thriving goldsmith next 
door to Temple Bar. Seeing the worth of the young man, 
Wheder married him to his only daughter, and on his death 
in 1663 left him heir to his business." 



LONDON BANKERS. 27 

Francis Child was the first banker who gave up the gold- 
smith's business. He has been called by Pennant " the 
Father of the Profession." The old ledgers of the firm prior 
to the year 1690 were replete with goldsmiths' and pawn- 
broking accounts mixed up with banking accounts. 

Lending mopey upon pledges must at that time have been 
a most profitable part of the goldsmith's trade. 

Sir Francis Child, Knight, Goldsmith, was elected Alder- 
man of Farringdon Ward Without on 22nd of October, 1689 ; 
Sheriff in 1690; and Lord Mayor in 1699. He was Presi- 
dent of Christ's Hospital in 1702, and represented the City 
in the first parliament of Queen Anne. He had a numerous 
family,* and some of his sons entered the bank ; notably 
Sir Robert, who was elected Alderman of Farringdon Ward 
Without on 22nd October, 17 13. He was Colonel of the 
Hon Artillery Company, and died 1721. 

Francis (the second son of Sir Francis Child) was elected 
Alderman of Farringdon Ward Without on loth October^ 
1721 ; Sheriff" 1722 ; Lord Mayor and knighted in 1732 ; and 
President of Christ's Hospital between 1727 — 1740. He 
was also M.P. for the City and a director of the East India 
Company. 

About the middle of the year 1729, Mr. Francis Child 
introduced a printed form of promissory note, having a picture 
of Temple Bar in the left-hand comer. These notes, how- 
ever, appear to have been discontinued at the end of the 
last century. They were worded much in the same manner 
as the Bank of England notes are at the present day, 
and were probably the first printed bank notes ever known. 

I have seen notes of Messrs. Child and Co. for the year 
1793, proving incontestably that they were not discontinued 
in. 1750, as is stated by Mr. Lawson in his History of Banking. 

Mr. Stephen Child (son of the first Sir Francis) joined Mr. 
Tudman, a goldsmith, "at y® Crown, in Lombard-street," 
before the year 1708; and the representatives of that firm 
are now Messrs. Willis, Percival and Co., who still clear for 
Messrs. Child and Co. 

Mr. Samuel Child (another son of Sir Francis Child) was 
for many years head of the firm. He was a member of par- 
liament, and died in 1752.

Child, married T3mingham Backwell,* son of Alderman 
Edward Backwell, the celebrated banker of Lombard street, 
who was ruined by the shutting up of the Exchequer by 
Charles 11. in 1672. 

This house is the only bank in London in which the clerks 
all become partners in order of seniority ; which custom pro- 
bably originated in the apprentice, after serving his full 
articles, being taken into the firm in partnership with his 
master. When bankers discontinued having apprentices 
{which was, I presume, about the time they left off the gold- 
smith's trade), their clerks who had risen from being juniors 
became head clerks and eventually partners. This practice, 
as far as this house is copcemed, has been continued ever 
since the latter end of the seventeenth century. 

In the early part of the eighteenth century it was a common 
occurrence for London bankers to take their clerks into the 
firm ; the custom has now, however, fallen into disuse. 

For full particulars of the various changes which have taken 
place in in this firm from time to time, I must refer my 
readers to a paper I wrote upon the bank, entitled "y* 
Marygold," which was read before the London and Middle- 
sex Archaeological Society in February last. 

Messrs. Child and Co. are well known to be the last that 
adopted the plan of issuing printed cheques ; which custom 
was revived by them about eighteen or twenty years ago. 
This was only a revival, as has been proved by the discovery 
of a large number of printed cheques of the year 1762, 
addressed to Francis Child, Esqre. and Co., which are pro- 
bably the earliest on record. They were continued by his 
brother, Robert Child, and afterwards by Messrs. Child and 
Co. ; and they appear to have fallen into disuse about the 
end of the last century. 

The old ledgers of this firm are replete with accounts of 
people famous in the History of England in the seven- 
teenth and eighteenth centuries. Of these the following may 
be enumerated : — 

Madame Eleanor Gwynne, the celebrated mistress of 

* Two of their sons, Bameby and William Backwell, were taken into 
the bank ; and they both became partners and heads of the house. Bameby 
died in 1753, and William Backwell retired from the firm in 1756 (for 
particulars see "y* Marygold"), and established a bank in Pall Mall at 
the sign of the Grasshopper ; of which details will be found under the name 
ofDevaynes.

Charles the Second, who died in debt to Messrs. Francis 
Child and John Rogers in 1687. Her executors were Lau- 
rence Hyde, Earl of Rochester ; Lord Sydney ; Sir Robert 
Sawyer, the Attorney General ; and the eighth Earl of Pem- 
broke. They signed the ledger on the 7th January, 1687, 
agreeing to pay five per cent. interest on the amount due to the 
firm, and to sell 14,443 ounces of plate. Messrs. Child and 
Co. possess her autograph to a draft dated nth December, 
1686. Poor Nell was evidently no scholar, as she could 
only make her marks, which were " E.G." They likewise 
possess the doctor's receipt for attending Madame Gwynne 
in her last illness, and for remedies and medicines, amounting 
to ;^io9. 

Then we find the name of Dr. Stillingfleet, Bishop of 
Worcester, of whom the following anecdote is told by Count 
Grammont in his Memoirs of the Court of Charles the 
Second : — 

" Charles, however, could jest upon his difficulties. He 
once asked Stillingfleet why he always read his sermons in 
the Chapel Royal, but preached extempore everywhere else. 
Stillingfleet answered that it was from the awe of his audience, 
and begged to know why His Majesty read his speeches to 
Parliament. * Odd's fish ! Doctor/ said the King, * 'tis no 
difficult question. I always ask for money, and I have so 
often asked for it that I am ashamed to look the members in 
the face.'" 

Then the following accounts are to be seen in Messrs. 
Child's ledgers of that period : — 

Gilbert Burnet, afterwards Bishop Salisbury. 

Roger, Earl of Castlemaine. 

Lord Keeper North. 

Executors of Sir Peter Lely. 

Laurence Hyde, Earl of Rochester. 

John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough. 

King William III, and Mary. 

Prince George of Denmark. 

Sir Josiah Child. 

Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland. 

John Dryden, the poet, who is said to have deposited J;^5o 
in the hands of Mr. Blanchard, Goldsmith, next door to 
Temple Bar, for the discovery of Lord Rochester's bullies. 

On December i8th,; 1679, writes Cunningham in his 



30 A HANDBOOK OF 

Handbook, in Rose Street (between King Street and Long 
Acre), as Dryden was returning home by Long Acre, over 
against Rose Street, he was barbarously assaulted and 
wounded by three persons hired for the purpose, as is now 
known by Wilmot, Earl of Rochester. Fifty pounds were 
offered by the King for the discovery of the offenders, and a 
pardon in addition, if a principal or an accessory would 
come forward. But Rochester's " Black Will with a cudgel " 
{the name he gives his bully) was bribed to silence, it is 
thought, by a better reward. Rochester took offence at a 
passage in Lord Mulgrave's '* Essay on Satire," an essay in 
which his lordship received assistance from Dryden. 

The Dukes of Beaufort, Devonshire, Bolton (Sheffield), 
Buckingham, Bedford, Bridgewater, Leeds, Rutland, 
Ancaster, &c. 

The Earls of Dorset, Middlesex, and De La Warr, and 
Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford, the originator of the South 
Sea Bubble. 

The titular Dukes of Powis and Tyrconnell. 

John, 2nd Lord Carteret, afterwards Earl Granville, ist 
Duke of Kingston, who introduced his little daughter. Lady 
Mary Wortley Montagu, when only eight years old, to the 
Kit Kat Club. 

Oliver Cromwell kept his account at " y* Marygold ;'* but 
unluckily the ledger which contained his account has been 
taken away from the Bank, and nothing has been heard of 
it for the last fifty years. 

Then the name of Sarah, the celebrated Duchess of Marl- 
borough, the friend of Queen Anne, must ever be remembered 
with reference to Child's. On one occasion when a rumour 
was afloat that a run was about to be made on the bank, she 
collected as much gold as she could and brought it down 
herself to Temple Bar on the very morning the run was to be 
made, so enabling the firm to meet all demands upon them. 

Some people say that she wrote a cheque upon the Bank 
of England for^^ 100,000; but that is probably an exaggerated 
statement, as no entry of such a transaction can be traced. 
It possibly may be an event that took place much after the 
one just described, or it may be another account of the same 
event. 

In the "History of the Bank of England" Mr. John Francis, 
who gives Ireland as his authority for the anecdote, gives the 



LONDON BANKERS, 31 

following account of the run, or " push," as it was then called, 
made upon Child's by the bank : — 

"He said he received it from an authority not to be 
doubted ; and it is, if true, curiously illustrative of the evil 
spirit which, only a century ago, influenced public bodies. 
It is probably a partial statement. 

"About 1745 the practice of bankers was to deliver, in 
exchange for money deposited, an accountable receipt, which 
they circulated like a modern cheque. Bank notes were then 
at a discount ; and the Bank of England, jealous of Child's 
reputation, secretly collected the receipts of their rivals, 
determined, when they had procured a very large number, 
suddenly to demand money for them, hoping that Child's 
would not be able to meet their liabilities. Fortunately for 
the latter, they got scent of this plot, and in great alarm 
applied to the celebrated Duchess of Marlborough, who gave 
them a single cheque of ;£'7oo,ooo on their opponents. 

" Thus armed. Child's waited the arrival of the enemy. It 
was arranged that this business should be transacted by one 
of the partners, and that a confidential clerk, on a given 
signal, should proceed with all speed to the bank to get the 
cheque cashed. At last a clerk from the Bank of England 
appeared with a full bag and demanded money for a large 
number of receipts. The partner was called, who desired 
him to present them singly. 

" The signal was given ; the confidential clerk hurried on 
his mission ; the partner was very deliberate in his move- 
ments ; and, long before he had taken an account of all the 
receipts, his emissary returned with ;^7 00,000; and the 
whole amount of ;^5oo,ooo or ;£^6oo,ooo was paid by 
Child's, in Bank of England notes. In addition to the 
triumph of this manoeuvre. Child's must have made a large 
sum, from bank paper being at a considerable discount." 

Mr. Francis considers it is most difficult of belief that any 
body of honourable men could act so disgraceful a part. 

It might probably have arisen out of a spirit of pique and 
revenge; as in the year 1707, when the Pretender was 
expected to invade England from France, where he had 
made extensive preparations, the people became very ex- 
cited, and the demand for gold was very great. The result 
was, that a large sum was drained out of the Bank of England 
and out of the hands of the goldsmiths. 



32 A HANDBOOK OP 

This was considered an opportunity for two goldsmiths 
and bankers to make a joint run upon the Bank qf England. 
They were no less personages than Sir R. Hoare and Sir 
Francis Child. One of them had collected bank bills to the 
value of ;^ 1 00,000, and the other likewise a large sum ; and 
they demanded payment on presentation. This demand 
placed the Bank in awkward circumstances ; but in the end 
they came out very well, as the Queen informed the Directors 
that she would allow 6 per cent, interest for their sealed bills 
for six months. 

In addition to this, many of the wealthy nobility advanced 
large sums to the Bank ; and subsequently a call of 20 per 
cent, was made on the proprietors. 

Amongst the many interesting autographs in the collection 
of the firm, the following may be particularised : — 

Nell Gwynne. 

Titus Oates (as an endorsement to a cheque of the Duke 
of Bolton). 

Archbishop Tenison. „ „ 

Sarah Churchill, afterwards Duchess of Marlborough. . 

Lady Rachael Russell, widow of Lord William Russell, who 
was executed in Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1684. 

George Evelyn of Wotton. 

Sir John Churchill, afterwards Duke of Marlborough. 

Roger, Earl of Castlemaine. 

Laurence Hyde, Earl of Rochester. 

Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleaveland. 

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu ; and a vast number of 
others of extreme interest. 

The following romantic and interesting anecdote may be 
deemed worthy of a place here. 

Mr. Robert Child, the last of his name and head of the 
bank in 1782, had an only daughter, Sarah Anne, who mar- 
ried on the 2oth May in that year John, tenth Earl of West- 
moreland. 

Lord Westmoreland, it is said, was dining with Mr. Child 
one afternoon at Temple Bar, and, amongst other subjects 
upon which they conversed. Lord Westmoreland said, "Child, 
I wish for your opinion on the following case :— Suppose 
that you were in love with a girl, and her father refused his 
consent to the union, what should you do ?" 



LONDON^ BANKERS, 33 

" Why ! run away with her, to be sure," was the prompt 
reply of Mr. Child, little thinking at the time that it was his 
daughter that the querist was in love with. Either that same 
night, or a few nights after. Lord Westmorland eloped with 
Miss Sarah Child in a post-chaise and four, from Berkeley 
Square House. The duenna, who slept in the outer room 
of Miss Child's apartment, was drugged by her maid, and 
her flight was only discovered by the " Charley " (or night 
watchman) finding the front door open and raising an alarm. 
Mr. Child at once took a post-chaise and pursued the run- 
aways. Whether Mr. Child had better horses, or whether 
he had more relays than the pursued, is not known ; but he 
approached so nearly to them in Cumberland that Lord 
Westmorland was compelled to stand up in his carriage and 
shoot the leading horse in Mr. Child's chaise. This bold 
proceeding gave Lord Westmorland time to get over the 
border, where the blacksmith was in readiness, and the pair 
were married at Gretna Green before Mr. Child could inter- 
fere with the ceremony. 

During the short interval between the runaway marriage 
and his death, Mr. Robert Child never forgave Lord and 
Lady Westmorland. He died in the course of the same 
year ; and by his will he left the whole of his immense for- 
tune to the first daughter of the union — Lady Sarah Sophia 
Fane, who married, on 23rd May, 1804, George Villiers, 
Earl of Jersey. 

The present head of the bank is Victor Albert George, 
Earl of Jersey, the grandson of the above ; and the chief 
acting partner is Mr. Frederick William Price. 

An anecdote is also told by one of the customers of the 
bank that, rather more than half a century ago, his grand- 
father having a considerable sum of money was anxious to 
meet with a London banker to take charge of it. With that 
view he took a journey to London and visited Several 
bankers, whom he consulted as to the terms upon which 
they would take his money. The bankers anxious to 
accommodate him, one said he would allow him 2 percent; 
another said 3 per cent. ; while a third hesitated as to what 
he would do. At last he went to Child's — where he stated 
his business, and asked what interest they would allow upon 
so large a sum of money. The reply was : " We shall be 
happy to take charge of your money, but we will not give you

34 • A HANDBOOK OF 

any interest for it" This answer appeared so to gratify and 
.; satisfy the old gentleman that he exclaimed, ''Then this 
is the place for me !" and he thereupon opened his ac- 
count. 

His descendants still bank with the firm; and Messrs. 
Child and Co. have never yet swerved from their old practice 
of not allowing interest for money on deposit. 

The following have been the various changes in the firm 
since the time of Blanchard and Child^ the successors of 
William Wheeler and Son : — 

Robert Blanchard died in June, 1681 ; and in July of the 
same year Francis Child took John Rogers into partnership 
with him, and the firm continued for some years under the 
style of Child and Rogers. 

Sir Francis Child died in 17 13, when the firm consisted 
of Robert Child, Francis Child, Henry Rogers, and Henry 
Morse, under the style of Sir Robert Child and Co. Sir 
Robert Child died in 1721 ; the firm then consisting of 
Francis Child, Samuel Child, ^enry Rogers, Henry Morse, 
and John Morse, under the style of Francis Child, Esq., and 
Co. Henry Rogers died in 1735 i upon which the firm 
comprised Sir Francis Child, Samuel Child, John Morse, 
and Bameby Backwell. Sir Francis Child died in 1740; 
the firm then became styled Samuel Child, Esq., and Co., 
consisting of Samuel Child, Bameby Backwell, and William 
Backwell. Samuel Child died in 1752 ; when the firm was 
composed of Mrs. Agatha Child, Messrs. Bameby Backwell, 
William Backwell, and Thomas Devon, under the style of 
Childs and Backwells. 

Bameby Backwell died in October, 1754, and John Fludd 
became junior partner. In 1756 William Backwell retired, 
and the firm consisted of Agatha Child, Francis Child (her 
son), Thomas Devon, and John Fludd. The latter retired 
in 1 761, and the following change occurred in the firm: 
Agatha Child, Francis Child, Robert Child, Thomas Devon, 
and Robert Lovelace, under the style of Francis Child, Esq., 
and Co. 

In 1763 both Mrs. Child and Francis Child died, and the 
style of the firm became Robert Child, Esq., and Co., con- 
sisting of Robert Child, Thomas Devon, Robert Lovelace, 
Robert Dent, and John Church. 

Robert Child died 28th July, 1782, when the firm con- 



LONDOISr BANKERS. 35 

sisted of Mrs. Sarah Child (widow), Robert Lovelace, Robert 

Dent, John Church, and John Keysall, trading under the 

style of Messrs. Child and Co. 

In 1786 the firm consisted of the following partners, Mrs. 

Sarah Child, Robert Dent, John Church, John Keysall, John 

Edgar, and John Wormald. 

In 1788 John Church died ; and two years after William 

Donaldson, who had been a clerk at Sir C. Asgill and Co's., 

was admitted into the firm. 

In 1 791 Mrs. Sarah Child married Lord Ducie. She died 

in 1793; and in 1795 John Dent became junior partner. 

In 1798 the firm consisted of Robert Dent, John Keysall, 

William Donaldson, John Dent, and John Wormald junior. 

Mr. Wormald, senior, had retired the year before. 

Harry Smith entered the firm in 1800; and in 1805 

Robert Dent and William Donaldson died, the firm then 

being John Keysall, John Dent, John Wormald, and Harry 

Smith. On 4th March, 1806, John Keysall retired, and 

Sarah Sophia Child, Countess of Jersey, became head partner. 
In 1808 the finn was represented by the Countess of Jersey, 

John Dent, John Wormald, Harry Smith, William Fuller, 
and James Wood. Harry Smith died in 181 7 ; and in the 
year following John Lister became junior partner. ^ 

John Dent died in December, 1826 ; and in March, 1827, 
William Shepherd and Ralph Addison entered the firm, 
which was then composed of the Countess of Jersey, John 
Wormald, William Fuller, James Wood, William Shepherd, 
and Ralph Addison. 

In 1835 John Wormald died, and, William Shepherd re- 
tiring, William Whelan became junior partner. In the follow- 
ing year John Brown was admitted, and in 1837 William 
Henry Smith ; when the firm was the Countess of Jersey, 
William Fuller, Ralph Addison, William Whelan, John 
Brown, and William Henry Smith. In 1840 William 
Whelan retired ; and Ralph Addison died ; and John 
Wormald became junior partner. In 1842 William Fuller 
retired; and in 1843 John Brown died; the business was 
then carried on by the Countess of Jersey, William Henry 
Smith, John Wormald, William Wood, and John Copp. 
The latter died in 1848, and William Wood retired in 1849; 
and in March of that year William Shepherd, George Addison, 
and £dward Robinson became partners. In March, 1859, 

1—2 



36 A HANDBOOK OF 

Mr. Smith retired, and in i860 Thomas Hiram Fraser was 
admitted junior partner. Mr. Shepherd died in 1862, and 
Alfred Mortimer was admitted to the firm. In 1866 Mr. 
Fraser died, and Frederick William Price became junior 
partner. 

The Countess of Jersey died on 26th January, 1867, and 
Mr. Mortimer retired in the course of the same year ; when 
Charles Thorold Fane filled the vacant place. In 1868 the 
firm consisted of the Hon. F. W. C. Villiers (trustee for the 
Earl of Jersey), John Wormald, George Addison, Edward 
Robinson, Frederick William Price, and Charles Thorold 
Fane. In 1872 the Hon. F. W. C. Villiers died, and George 
Addison retired ; whereupon the Earl of Jersey became head 
partner, and Robert Hughes Potter junior partner. In March, 
1874, Edward Robinson retired, and in November of that 
year John Wormald died, and Edward Prichard Evans 
became junior partner ; and in March, 1875, Frederick Little- 
hales was admitted into the firm. Thus the business is now 
carried on by the Earl of Jersey, Frederick William Price, 
Charles Thorold Fane, Robert Hughes Potter, Edward 
Prichard Evans and Frederick Littlehales, under the old 
style of Child and Co.

City Bank.

paid-up capital is ;^6oo,ooo, with a reserve fund of ;^i35,ooo. 
There are four branches in London. 

City and County Bank. 

Established at 33, Abchurch Lane about 1872, Stopped 
payment in May, 1875. 

Clearing House. 

The system of clearing, as first adopted, was certainly pri- 
mitive and unsafe. Mr. Lawson says : — " The clerks of the 
various banking-houses used to perform the operation of 
exchanges at the comers of streets and on the top of a post ; 
they then met by appointment at a public-house ; but, from 
the insecurity of these arrangements, it was at last thought 
advisable that the principal city bankers should rent a house 



LONDON BANKERS, 37 

near the Post-office in Lombard Street. This house was 
called the Clearing House. To it bankers send all their bills, 
cheques, &c., which have been paid in since the clearing of 
the previous day." In the " Grasshopper/' Mr. J. B. Martin 
says that for clearing they very often resorted to a banking- 
house, which had a large recess in the window, which they 
found convenient; but the house in question found it to be 
just the opposite, and the noise made such a hindrance to 
business that, as it is said, they were often summarily turned 
out. This led to a house being taken in 1810. 

Mr. Martin thinks it quite possible that the "Grass- 
hopper" was the rendezvous referred to ; but an entry in 1773, 
" Quarterly charge for use of clearing-room, 19s. 6d," gives 
an earlier date to its establishment. 

I have observed that in the middle of the seventeenth 
century it was the practice of goldsmiths to keep running 
accounts with each other, for the convenience of being able to 
transfer money from their respective accounts to those of 
others, as directed by their customers having cash accounts 
with such goldsmiths or bankers. Thus an early system of 
clearing was established, which has since become such a vast 
and important element in the banker's business. 

In the ledgers of Alderman Edward Backwell (in the posses- 
sion of Messrs. Child and Co.) covering the years 1663 ^nd 
1672, and in the early books of Messrs. Blanchard and Child of 
the same period, may be seen accounts testifying to the preva- 
lence of this custom among most of the principal goldsmiths of 
that time. 

In Messrs. Child and Co.'s clearing books for about the 
year 1753, I have noticed that bankers' clerks, calling to 
collect the various cheques they had upon the house, were 
occasionally paid by cheques or cash notes that Messrs. Child 
chanced to have upon such bankers in part payment, the 
remainder being settled for by a cash-note or coin. For 
instance, suppose that Messrs. Martin and Co. had a charge 
of;£'5oo upon Child and Co. — Child's happening to have 
drafts on Martin to the extent, say of ;£^4oo, the walk-clerk 
would take such drafts, and the balance would be paid by 
Child's own cash-notes or coin. 

The present system of the Clearing House is a vast im- 
provement. Here every banker, whom the committee of 
bankers agree to receive into the house, has a desk in it, 



38 A HANDBOOK OF 

with his name affixed ; and clerks from the various bankers 
come in from time to time, when the house is open for busi- 
ness, and deliver all the cheques they have received since the 
previous day to the desks of the several bankers* upon whom 
they have drafts or bills, — first of all writing their names 
across each cheque. This was the origin of crossed cheques, 
a practice now generally adopted as a security against fraud. 
The amounts of these drafts are taken down upon sheets of 
paper by the clearing-clerk, and the cheques are then sent 
over to their respective banks to be cancelled by the firm. 
At this establishment they settle the whole amount delivered 
during the day (and the sum has been known to reach 
;^5 2,000,000) by receiving or paying the difference by a 
transfer on the Bank of England ; all the clearing bankers 
keeping an account with that institution. 

Before the nth May, 1854, the clearing was settled by 
bank notes; for which purpose an average amount of 
;£"2oo,ooo was required to adjust its transactions. 

The joint-stock banks were admitted to the Clearing- 
house on the 8th June, 1854. 

This reform was followed by another of equal consequence 
to the banking community, — namely, the establishment of 
the Country Clearing House on 22 November, 1858; an 
undertaking devised by Sir John Lubbock, Bart. 

The governing body of this house is as under : 

R. C. L. Bevan, Esq., Chairman. 
Jervoise Smith, Esq., Deputy Chairman. 
Sir John Lubbock, Bart., M.P., Hon Sec. 
George Derbyshire, Esq., Chief Inspector. 
John C. Pocock, Esq., Deputy Inspector. 

Cliffe and Co., 1759. (See Walpole.) 
Cocks, Biddulph and Co., 

Of 43, Charing Cross, have informed me that they started 
about 1750. In all probability they were at that time gold- 
smiths, as their name does not appear in the list of bankers 
before the year 1763, when Biddulph and Cocks were at the 
New Buildings, Charing Cross. 

In the following year the name of George Ridge is met with 
on cash-notes, signing for the firm. In 1776 the firm was 
Biddulph, Cocks, Eliot and Praedj and in 1785 they took 
Mr. Ridge into partnership. In the list of 1792 two of the 



LONDON BANKERS. 39 

; "members had left the firm, and the style became Biddulph* 
Cocks and Ridge, which continued until 1820, when the 
style changed, and it became Cocks, Cocks, Ridge and Bid- 
dulph. From 1827 until 1845, it was Cocks and Biddulph j 
afterwards it became Cocks, Biddulph and Co. 

In i860 it was Biddulph, Cocks and Co., and that con- 
tinued to be the style of the firm until 1865, when it reverted 
to Cocks, Biddulph and Co., which is its present designation j 
the partners being — 

Thomas Somers Cocks. 
Reginald Thistlethwayte Cocks. 
Michael Biddulph. 
Edward Richard Evans. 

*Coggs, John, 

Was a goldsmith keeping running cashes, according to the 
Little London Directory published in 1677, at the King's 
Head, in the Strand. 

He kept an account a few years afterwards with Blanchard 
and Child for purposes of clearing. 

I have seen his signature on the backs of drafts as early as 
1685—1687. 

The following draft, of which I submit a copy, is dated 
London, 18 August, 1685 : — 

" I pray the bearer hereof, Mr. John Cogs, goldsmith, the 
sum of foureteene pounds, and put it on the account of Dr. 
Edward Chamberlayne. 

" I'or Capt. Child, Goldsmith, 
" Temple Bar." 

Upon another drawn in 1707 by Lawrence Hyde, Earl of 
Rochester, in favour of the Earl De Loraine, the following 
endorsement occurs : 

" Witness Wm. Wilson, for Messrs. Coggs and Dann." 

Thus it will be seen that Mr. Coggs had taken a partner 
at this period. — 1708 is the last year in which I have been 
able to find the name upon any document 

The following interesting letter, which is in the possession of 
Messrs. Child and Co., was addressed to Henry Morse (one 
of the partners in that firm) by the Earl of Litchfield, proving 
that customers, before the days of pass-books, were in the 
liabit of calling at their bankers to check their accounts, at 



40 A HANDBOOK OF 

foot of which they subscribed their names with — " I allow 
this account" It is of frequent occurrence in the ledgers of 
Messrs. Child and Co. : 

"Sir, "May, 30, 1713. 

" I love to go on in old formes if there be no reasons 
of consequence to y* contrary, and therefore I send you y* 
writing that was allwayes put to y* foot of y* accounts between 
Mr. Coggs and I when they were passed for every halfe 
yeares rents, and to this writing Mr. Dann and I sett otu: 
hands. 

« I am 

" Your affectionate 

" friend to serve you 

" Litchfield." 

The above letter would lead us to suppose that Messrs* 
Coggs and Dann at this date (17 13) had either given up 
business or had stopped payment. 

In addition to the Earl of Litchfield, and Earl Deloraine, 
the Earl of Ailesbury banked with them, as is proved by a 
draft of Mr. Edw*** Ryder's in 1687, addressed to Mr. Crat- 
ford, desiring him to pay Mr, John Coggs for the use of the 
Rt Hon**'*- the Earl of Ailesbury the sum of three hundred 
pounds. 

Colebrooke and Co. 

The earliest date at which any mention is made of the 
firm of James Colebrooke and Co., bankers, is 1721, when 
their name is found upon an old cash-note. 

They appear in the London Directory of 1736 as Cole- 
brooke, Rooke and Harvey, behind the Royal Exchange ; 
and, in another list, as near the Antwerp Tavern, Thread- 
needle Street. In 1740 the style of the firm became Cole- 
brooke and Lightfoot; and in 1743 it was Sir James Cole- 
brooke, Bart., and Co. In 1756 a customer's signature is- 
witnessed by W. Binns for James Colebrooke, Esq., and Co.* 
In 177 1 the Directory shows further changes ; the firm stand- 
ing as Sir George Colebrooke, Lessingham and Binns. The 
latter had been their clerk, and their house was then numbered 

• Messrs. Sir George Colebrooke, Bart, and Co., were likewise bankers- 
in 1765 at St Mary's Abbey, Dublin. 
Sir Geoige Colebrooke Bart, represented Arundel in Parliament in 1768..

62, Threadneedle Street, which in 1778 was taken by Pres- 
cott, Grote and Co. Nothing is known of Colebrooke, Binns 
and Co. after the year 1776. 

Collier, Jolm. 

Nothing is known of him further than that he was one of 
those unfortunate goldsmiths who had money in the Ex- 
chequer when it was shut up by Charles the Second on the 
2nd January, 1672. It is recorded that he lost the sum of 
;^i784 6s. 4d, for which he received a bond from the King 
agreeing to pay ;^io7 is. id. per annum as interest 

Colvillf John, 

Of Lombard Street, was a goldsmith of some note. He 
is mentioned by Pepys in his Diary, 28 Aug. 1665 : — "To- 
Mr. Colvill the goldsmith, having not for some days been in 
the street, but now how few people I see, and those looking, 
like people that had taken leave of the world." And again,^ 
on 29 Feb., 1667—8, Pepys records : — *^ Wrote to my father, 
and sent him Colvill*s note for ;^6oo for my sister's portion." 
This is one of the earliest records we have of a goldsmith's, 
note, which was issued by the goldsmith for the amount of 
money deposited with him. It was the origin of Bank Notes. 
On the nth March, 1668, Pepys says : " Meeting Mr. Col- 
vill, I walked with him to his building, where he is building. 
a fine house where he formerly lived, in Lumbard Street ;. 
and it will be a very fine street" 

This John Colvill had deposited ;^85,832 17s. 2d. in the 
Exchequer, and that sum he lost by the King's shutting it 
up in January, 1672. The amount was fourth in magnitude ;. 
and he must have been in a large way of business to have 
been able in those days to deposit so much at interest at one 
time. 

His Majesty granted the usual bond, dated April 1677,. 
unto John Lyndrey, as due to Dorothy his wife, administratrix 
to John Colvill, her late husband, deceased. The total of 
interest directed to be paid was ;^5i49 17 s. 4d. per annum. 
As he died between 1672 and 1677, i^ is quite possible that 
this severe loss was the cause of his death. 

Commercial Bank of London 

Came into existence about 1841, at 3, Moorgate Street 
It subsequently moved to Lothbury, and occupied the 



42 A HANDBOOK OF 

premises in Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, vacated by 
Messrs. Wright and Co. This bank stopped payment in 
1 86 1, and the business was taken over by the London and 
Westminster. 

Consolidated Bank (Limited), 

52, Threadneedle Street, was established in 1863. It has 
a branch in West Strand and in Manchester. Its paid-up 
capital is ;^ 800,000, and the reserve fund amounts to 
^120,000. This bank has absorbed the old private banks 
of Messrs. Hankeys, and Messrs. Heywood, Kennard and 
Co. ; and it likewise took over the business of the Bank of 
London, when that bank failed in 1866 ; but the Consoli- 
dated Bank, not being quite strong enough then, was pulled 
down by it, and suspended payment for a short time. In 
about a fortnight, however, it resumed operations. 

Cooper, Oissinghanii 

(Often spelt Gifflingham in the Directories), was a gold- 
smith and banker in the Strand, at the comer of Arundel 
Street. The earliest date that I can meet with is 1735, when 
his name appears as an endorsement to a draft. I have seen 
it on others up to 1 761, in which year one is endorsed: 
" Pay the contents to Mr. Gis"' Cooper, Banker, in the 
Strand." His name appears for the last time in a list of 
bankers published in 1768. 

€omewall and Co., 1774. (See Dimsdale.) 
<Coutts and Co. 

The widely known banking-house of Messrs. Coutts and 
Co. was originally established by a goldsmith of the name of 
George Middleton, who kept a shop near St Martin's Church, 
St. Martin's Lane. 

The first mention of this goldsmith occurs in or about 
3692, when he had a partner of the name of George Camp- 
bell. Thus in that year Messrs. Middleton and Campbell 
were carrying on business as goldsmiths and bankers. 

It has been my good fortune to see a large number of old 
cash-notes and drafts of Messrs; Child and Co. (between 
1 7 14 and 1748) bearing endorsements of this firm ; some of 
which show the autograph of George Campbell, and many 
of which are witnessed by David Bruce, who afterwards was 



LONDON BANKERS. 43 

admitted a partner, and of Ralph Bullock,* who signed for 
the house from 1743 to 1761. 

Between 1743 and 1748 George Middleton died, and 
George Campbell associated himself in partnership with his 
•clerk, David Bruce, who had witnessed the signatures of 
customers for the past twenty years. 

In 1753 the business appears to have been solely in the 
hands of George Campbell. About 1754 he took James 
Coutts into partnership. 

This James Coutts was the son of John Coutts, a merchant 
of Edinburgh, who by his industry and perseverance became 
Lord Provost from 1742 to 1744. His portrait is in the 
possession of the Baroness Burdett Coutts ; and in it he is 
depicted in the costume of the time of George the Second. 
He had four sons, John, James, Patrick, and Thomas. The 
two former started business in Edinburgh as com factors, and 
had for partner their cousin Stephen; while Patrick and 
Thomas, with Thomas Stephen, came to London and set up 
in Jeffrey Square, St. Mary Axe. 

It is . stated that when James Coutts came up to London 
on a visit to his brothers, he happened to meet a Miss Polly 
Peagrim, the niece of George Campbell, the goldsmith of 
St. Martin's Lane ; and that he fell in love with her, and was 
married to her. Shortly after this he was taken into partner- 
ship by Mr. Campbell, and at the same time he retired from 
the old business in connection with his brothers in London 
and Edinburgh. 

The firm now became Campbell and Coutts; and they 
<:arried on their trade near Durham Yard, in the Strand. 

George Campbell died in 1761; whereupon he took into- 
partliership his brother Thomas Coutts, who at once gave up 
his connection with the business in St. Mary Axe ; and the 
style of the firm became Coutts and Coutts. 

Thomas Coutts being the only one left to conduct the 
business in St. Mary Axe, it was entirely given up, upon his 
becoming a banker. With regard to the Edinburgh branch, 
that continued to prosper for many years. Eventually it 
became known under the style of Sir William Forbes and Co., 
and finally merged into the Union Bank of Scotland. 

♦ He had been clerk in turn to Middleton and Campbell, Campbell and 
Bruce, George Campbell, Campbell and Coutts, and Coutts and Coutts. 



44 ^ HANDBOOK OF 

Mr. James Coutts* died in 1778. The charge of the bank 
in the Strand then devolved upon his brother Thomas, wha 
long survived him, and became one of the first bankers in 
London. However, he never forgot Edinburgh, which he 
occasionally visited ; and he was presented with the freedom 
of that city. 

A characteristic instance both of his shrewdness and of 
his enterprise is given by Mr. Martin in his " Stories of Banks 
and Bankers," extracted from Lawson's " History of Bank- 
ing." " In the early part of his career, Mr. Coutts, anxious 
to secure the cordial co-operation of the heads of the various 
banking-houses in London, was in the habit of frequently 
inviting them to dinner. On one of these occasions, the 
manager of a city bank, in retailing the news of the day,^ 
accidentally remarked that a certain nobleman had applied 
to his firm for a loan of ;^3o,ooo, and had been refused. 
Mr. Coutts listened, and said nothing ; but the moment his- 
guests had retired, about ten o'clock in the evening, he started 
oflf to the house of the nobleman mentioned, and requested 
the honour of an interview with his lordship the next day. 
On the following morning, the nobleman called at the bank. 
Mr. Coutts received him with the greatest politeness, and,, 
taking thirty one-thousand-pound notes from a drawer, pre- 
sented them to his lordship. The latter, very agreeably sur- 
prised, exclaimed : * But what security am I to give you ?' 
* I shall be satisfied with your lordship's note of hand,* was 
the reply. This was instantly given, with the remark * I find 
I shall only require for the present ;^i 0,000; I therefore 
return you ;£'2o,ooo, with which you will be pleased to open 
an account in my name.'" The generous — or, as it may 
more truly be called, exceedingly well-calculated — act of Mr. 
Coutts was not lost upon the nobleman ; who, in addition to- 
paying in within a few months ;£"2oo,ooo to his account,, 
being the produce of the sale of an estate, recommended 
several high personages to patronise the Bank in the Strand. 
Among some of the customers who did so patronise it 
was King George the Third, who continued to keep his ac- 
counts there, until the following incident took place, as 
recorded by Mr. Lawson : — 

" Mr. Coutts had advanced ;^i 00,000 to Sir Francis 

* In 1768 he represented Edinburgh City in Parliament 



LONDON BANKERS. 45 

Burdett towards the expenses of his election for Middlesex. 
On this fact becoming known to the King, he sent for Mr. 
Coutts, and, after satisfying himself of the real facts of the 
case, immediately withdrew his money from the bank, a con- 
siderable portion of which he placed in the hands of a banker 
at Windsor, who, to the great mortification of the King, 
subsequently failed, considerably in his Majesty's debt." 

The King, however, opened an account with Mr. Drum- 
mond at Charing Cross, with whom he banked until his 
death. 

Mr. Coutts, who had lived as bachelor for many years, 
married Elizabeth Starkey, a superior domestic servant in his 
brother's service ; and by her he had three daughters, who 
were called the " Three Graces.'* The eldest, Susan, married 
the Earl of Guildford; the second, Frances, married the 
Marquess of Bute; and Sophia, his third and youngest 
daughter, married Sir Frances Burdett, Bart. 

Mrs. Coutts, after being an invalid for some years, died. 
Mr. Coutts then married Miss Mellon, the actress ; and for 
some time they were both much annoyed by the unworthy 
and ridiculous remarks that were passed upon their union. 
Such criticism, however, is supposed to have strengthened 
their mutual attachment, for, when Mr. Coutts died on 22nd 
February, 1822, at the advanced age of 87, he left his widow 
the whole of his property, amounting to ;£^90o,ooo; a sufficient 
proof of the confidence he reposed in her. 

Mrs. Coutts afterwards married the Duke of St. Albans. 
She, however, reserved to herself, by marriage settlement, the 
•sole control of her property ; and at her death she left the 
•whole of her great wealth to Angela Burdett, the youngest 
'daughter of Sir Francis Burdett, who was the favourite grand- 
•daughter of Mr. Thomas Coutts. This lady then assumed 
the additional surname of Coutts ; and subsequently she was 
created a peeress with the title of Baroness Burdett-Coutts. 

The present banking house. No. 59, Strand, was built by 

Messrs. Adam, in 1768, on the site of the old house. In 

•Cunningham's " Handbook of London," under the head of 

" Strand," the following particulars of the house are given ; — 

"It contains some good marble chimney-pieces of the 

•Cipriani and Bacon school. The dining-room is hung with 

'Chinese subjects on paper, sent to Coutts by Lord Macartney, 

^hile on his embassy to China in 179^ — 95. In another

poet, by Joshua Reynolds. The strong rooms, or vaults of 
the house, will repay an endeavour to obtain a sight of them. 
The order in which the place is kept is wondrous." 

After the death of Thomas Coutts, the firm became known 
by the old style of Coutts and Co., which it retains to the 
present day. 

Of some of the banking firms that have been absorbed by 
Messrs. Coutts, we may mention those of Davison and Co. 
in 1816, and of Hammersley and Co. in 1840. Messrs. 
Coutts and Co. kept the accounts of Queen Anne, and of most 
of the kings and queens since that time. 

The Royal families of France also kept their accounts there, 
as do Queen Victoria and the present Royal family. 

The firm of Coutts and Co. consists of the following 
partners : — 

William Matthew Coulthurst, 

Edward Marjoribanks. 

Hugh Lindsay Antrobus. 

Edmund Coulthurst. 

Hon. Henry Dudley Ryder. 

George Robinson. 

Lord Archibald Campbell. 

Cox (John) and Cleave 

Appear to have been bankers in London between 
1715—20. 

Cox, Merle and Co., 1792. (See Merle.) 
Cunliffe (Roger), Sons and Co. 

Messrs. Roger CunHflfe, Sons and Co. have informed me 
that their house was established in London about the year 
1 81 5, as a branch of the Manchester house of Ctmliflfe^ 
Brooks and Co., who were originally manufacturers. 

The firm consists of the following partners : — 

Roger Cimliflfe. 
Edward S. Cunliffe. 
Hemy Bartlett. 

Cunliffe, Brooks and Co., 1836. (See Alexander.) 
Curries and Co. 

This house appears to have sprung into existence in 1773^ 
the year after the failure of the banking-house of Messrs. 
Neale, James, Fordyce and Co. They established them- 



LONDON BANKERS, 47 

selves at 29, Comhill. The style of the firm was Mason^ 
Currie, James and Yallowby. 

I am of opinion that the Mr. James above mentioned was 
the same gentleman who was in partnership with Neale and 
Fordyce. J. Yallowby was their clerk, and had been in the 
habit of witnessing the signatures of that firm for some few 
years, as may be seen on some of the old notes of Messrs. 
Child and Co. In 1781 the firm was Currie, Lefevre, 
James and Yallowby; and in 1785, Lefevre, Curries, James 
and Yallowby. In 1788 Mr. James' name ceased to appear, 
and a junior partner of the name of Raikes was admitted into 
the firm. 

In 1807 the style of the firm again changed, by the dis- 
appearance of Mr. Yallowby's name from the list, and the 
introduction of a new partner of the name of Lawford. In 
1 8 14 the firm was styled Curries, Raikes and Co. ; and from 
1827 until 1864, when they amalgamated with Messrs. Glyn, 
Mills and Co, the style of the firm was Curries and Co. 

The firm of Dorrien and Co , of Finch-lane, amalgamated 
with Messrs. Curries in 1842 ; but that circumstance did not 
alter the style of the firm. 

Curtis, Bobartsand Co., 1818—33 (See Robarts.) 
Davison and Co. 

Messrs. Edwards, Smith, Templer, Middleton, Johnson 
and Wedgwood were established as bankers in 1794, at 18, 
Stratford Place, Oxford Street. 

In the following year Mr. Smith's name did not appear 
among the partners of the firm in the list of bankers. In 
' 1805 the style of the firm became Davison, Noel, Templer, 
Middleton, Johnson and Wedgwood, carrying on business at 
34, Pall Mall. In 1807 the name of Johnson disappeared 
from the firm, and the business was carried on by the other 
partners until 18 16, when this banking-house ceased to exist, 
and many of the customers were recommended to transfer 
their accounts to Messrs. Coutts and Co., who still have 
possession of their ledgers, &c. Their premises were taken 
by Messrs. Hopkinsons', who occupied them until 181 9, 
when they were taken by Messrs. Ransom and Co.

Of Soho Square, a money scrivener, advertised in " The 
Times" of November 11, 1791, to have a meeting of his

Devaynes and Co., 

This house was established by Mr. William Backwell. a 
grandson of the well-known Alderman Edward Backwell, 
goldsmith and banker in the reign of Charles the Second. Mr. 
William Backwell had been in the bank of Messrs. Child and 
Co. for many years, having entered that house about 1720 as 
a junior clerk, and in or about 1740 having been taken into 
partnership with Mr. Samuel Child, and his brother, Bameby 
Backwell. After Mr. Child's death in 1752, Mrs. Agatha 
Child became head partner in trust for her two sons. The 
business was then virtually in the hands of the two brothers 
Backwell, and the firm was then known as Messrs. Child and 
Backwell's. It having transpired that they had tried to get 
the whole business into their own name, ignoring the Child 
interest, a dispute arose between Mrs. Agatha Child and 
William Backwell as to the division of profits ; and it was 
referred to, and settled by, the Lord Chancellor in 1755; Mr. 
William Backwell retiring from the partnership. 

The year following (1756) he established a bank at the 
«ign of the Grasshopper in Pall Mall, afterwards numbered 39, 
the site of the present Army and Navy Club House. 

I have seen cash-notes in Messrs. Child's possession 
dated 1756, endorsed " For Messrs. Backwell and Co., John 
Battye." 

In 1765 the Royal Annual Kalendar gives the names of 
the firm as Backwell, Hart, Darell and Croft. The latter was 
Robert Croft, who had been a clerk at Messrs. Child and Co.'s. 
By an endorsement on a note dated 1767, the name of Willm. 
Noble appears as witnessing the signature of the firm, and he 
subsequently became a partner. 

In 1770 the firm appears in the Directory to have been 
Croft, Hart and Backwell, the last gentleman probably being 
a descendant of William Backwell. In 1778 the firm was 
styled Croft, Backwell, Roberts and Croft ; and in the follow- 
ing year Crofts, Devaynes, Roberts and Dawes* In 1782 



LONDON BANKERS. 49 

it was Crofts, Devaynes, Dawes and Noble. The style of 
the firm changed several times subsequently; and in 1810 
Messrs. Devaynes, Dawes, Noble and Co. stopped payment 
during the great panic caused by overtrading in produce and 
by excess of exports. 

De Vismes, Cuthbert and Co., 1796. (See Marsh.) 
Dimsdale and Co. 

The first mention I can find of this old business is in one 
of Messrs. Child and Co.'s drafts for the year 1762, on which 
is endorsed, "Witness for Messrs. Amyand, Staples and 
Mercer, Geo. Fawell." 

The Royal Annual Kalendar for 1765, states that Amyard 
(j/V.), Sir George Staples, and Mercer were bankers, near 
Gracechurch Street, the sign of their house being The Golden 
Helmet and the Golden Bear. 

In 1770, when houses were first numbered, they appear in 
the Directory as at 50, Cornhill. In the same year Messrs. 
Dimsdale, Archer and Hyde were at No. 2, White Hart 
Court, Gracechurch Street. This firm must have been 
established about the same time as Amyands, for on the back 
of one of Messrs. Child and Co.*s notes of 1769 is the fol- 
lowing endorsement : " Witness J. Woodville, for Messrs. 
Dimsdale, Archer and Hyde." 

In the year 1774 Sir George Cornewall, Staples and Watts 
were at 50, Cornhill, and Messrs. Dimsdale, Archer, Hyde, 
Dimsdale and Co. in White Hart Court. In 1776 the style of 
the firm became Archer, Hyde, Maude, Watts and Co., and in 
1779 this firm altogether disappeared from the list of bankers, 
and amalgamated with the firm of Messrs. Staples, Baron 
Dimsdale, John Dimsdale, and Josiah Barnard. 

In 1785 it became Baron Dimsdale, Sons, Barnard and 
Staples, which style continued with one or two minor changes 
until 1 8 14, when it became Barnard, Dimsdale and Dimsdale. 
The firm was known as Messrs. Barnard and Co. until 1852, 
when the old house of Drewett, Fowler and Co. amalgamated 
with them. This banking-house of Messrs. Drewett makes 
its first appearance in the London Directory in 1799, under 
the style of Joseph Smith and Co. In 1818 it was Smith 
and Holt ; in the following year, William Holt and Co. ; and 
in 1823 it became Drewett and Fowler. Up to the year

1836 they were located at 60, Old Broad Street In 1837 
the Directory shows that they removed their business to 
Princes' Street Bank, at which house they remained until the 
amalgamation took place with Messrs. Barnard and Co. in 
1852, when the style of the firm became Messrs. Dimsdale, 
Drewett, Fowler and Barnard. 

In 1866 the name of Drewett no longer is to be seen in 
the firm. It then was Dimsdale, Fowler and Barnard ; and 
the present style of the firm is Dimsdale, Fowler, Barnard 
and Dimsdale, who flourish at 50, Comhill, on the original 
site of the house known by the sign of The Golden Helmet 
and the Golden Bear. 

The firm consists of the following partners : — 

Joseph Cockfield Dimsdale. 
Robert Nicholas Fowler. 
Herbert Barnard. 
Joseph Cockfield Dimsdale, junr. 
John Dimsdale. 

Dixon, Brooks, and Co. 

The originators of this banking business were Richard 
Master, Edward Dawson, George Brooks, John Kirton, and 
Ralph Clayton, who established themselves at 26, Chancery 
Lane, about the year 1787. They appear in the London 
Directory for the first time in 1788. 

The first change to record is the substitution of the name 
of Dixon for that of Clayton, as junior partner, in 1791. 
In 1802 it became Dawson, Brooks, Son, and Dixon. In 

, 18 14 the name of Dawson is no longer seen, the style of 
the firm becoming Brooks, Son, and Dixon, and in 18 19, 

; Brooks and Dixon. In 1825 George Brooks's name does 
not appear , but the names of three new partners occur, 
the firm thus being Dixon, Langdale, Dixon, and Brooks. 
In 183 1 it was Dixon, Son, and Brooks; and in 1836 
Dixon, Brooks, and Dixon, which continued to be the style 
until 1859, when the business, together with some of the 
clerks, was transferred to the Union Bank of London, who 
opened a branch bank at 13, Fleet Street, to carry] on the 
old business ; which by good management increased con- 
siderably. They subsequently built a new bank in Chancery 
Lane, where they still conduct the business. 

Dorriens and Co. 

The firm of Dorrien, Rucker, and Carleton started at 22, 



LONDON BANKERS. 51 

Finch Lane in 1770. In 1776 Carleton*s name disappears, 
and two new partners came into the firm; thus, in that 
year, it was Dorrien, Rucker, Dorrien, and Martin. 

In 1779 it became Dorrien, Mello, and Martin. Sub- 
sequently a Mr. Magens entered the firm ; and, with a few 
minor alterations, the style of it continued to be Dorriens, 
Magens, Mello, and Co., until 1842, when they amalgamated 
with Curries and Co., of Cornhill. 

Mr. Thomas Hiram Fraser, for some years one of the 
partners at Messrs. Child and Co., Temple Bar, was once a 
junior clerk in this house. I have likewise heard it asserted 
that Baron Bramwell was at one time a junior clerk in the 
bank of Messrs. Dorriens. 

Dorsett and Co. 

This business, which was of but short duration, was estab- 
lished at 68, New Bond Street, in 1785, by Sir Herbert 
Mackworth, Bart., Dorsett, Johnson, and Wilkinson. The 
firm sprang out of the bank of Messrs. Pybus and Co., in 
which house Dorsett had until that year been a partner. In 
1792 the name of Sir Herbert Mackworth is not seen, and 
the style of the firm became Dorsett, Johnson, Wilkinson, 
and Bemers. In 1796 a junior partner of the name of 
Tilson was admitted ; but nothing can be ascertained about 
them after 1797, in which year they ceased to exist. They 
probably stopped payment during the money panic, which 
arose from the drain of gold sent abroad for subsidies and 
loans to our Allies. 

The price of consols (be it noted) on the 6th April, 1797 
was 471 per cent. 

Down and Co., 1782 — 1815. (See Pole.) 

Drummonds and Co., of Charing Cross. 

The business of this bank was established about 17 12, by 
Mr. Andrew Drummond, a goldsmith, who was son of 
Sir John Drummond, of Machany. 

As far as I can ascertain through the list and the agency 
of old drafts, Andrew Drummond had the business in his 
own hands until about 1741. I have a signature of John 
Drummond, signing for Mr. Andrew Drummond in 1741. 
When the next list is referred to, that for 1754, it will be 
seen that the firm was Andrew Drummond and Co. 

In 1770 the style of the firm had become John Drum-

^ mond and Co.; and in 1775 it was Robert Drummond and 
Co., which continued to be the designation until 1804, when 
Andrew Drummond became head partner. In 1835 Henry 
Drummond became head partner, and occupied that position 
until 1847 \ i° which year Andrew Mortimer Drummond 
became head of the firm. Since 1804 it has been known 
by the style of Drummond and Co. 

Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, the Rebel, banked with this 
firm. He was tried for high treason at Westminster Hall, 
and beheaded on Tower Hill, 9th April, 1747, on a new 
block procured for the occasion, which the^curious may see 
in Queen Elizabeth's Armoury in the Tower. He was the 
last person beheaded in this country. 

When George the Third became displeased with his 
banker, Mr. Coutts, he withdrew his balance, and sub- 
sequently banked with Messrs. Drummond. George, Prince 
of Wales, likewise kept an account with them for some years ; 
but whether he was too extravagant at that time does 
not transpire. Suffice it to say, that the King desired 
Mr. Drummond not to make any further advances to his 
son. This order placed Mr. Drummond in an awkward pre- 
dicament. If he disobeyed his Majesty, he would lose the 
accounts and gain the favours of the Prince ; on the other 
hand, he would offend the Prince and lose the Royal accounts 
at the decease of the King. Like a loyal subject, however, 
he obeyed the command of his Majesty; and, when the 
Prince of Wales applied for further advances, Mr. Drum- 
mond was reluctantly obliged to refuse him; upon which 
Uie Prince went to Mr. Coutts, who let him have what 
ne required, and the Royal Family have banked there ever 
since. 

The Drummonds trace their descent from the noble 
Scotch family of Strathellan, who lost their title and estates 
in " the 45," and who were one of the earliest instances of 
the nobility entering into the commercial world. 

A good story is current to the effect that, on its original 
starting at Charing Cross, the offices of the firm were so 
small, that a sailor, who had an order upon them for ^£'20 
prize money, generously offered to take ^£'5 on account, and 
to call for the residue in a month or two ; — ^Jack being most 
solicitous not to overstrain their resources. 

By the death of Mr. Harvey Drummond, the senior

member, which took place on ist October, 1875, the firm is 
reduced to the following partners : —

the same year. (See Olding.) 

Esdaile and Co. 

This banking-house was established in 1781 at 26, Birchin 
Lane, by Sir James Esdaile (who was Alderman for Cripple- 
gate ward), under the style of Esdaile, Ham met and Esdaile. 
In 1782 they moved to 73, Lombard Street 

In 1792 the firm amalgamated with Messrs. Smith, Wright 
and Co., of 21, Lombard Street, which firm was originated 
about 1759 at Uie Three Kings, afterwards No. 55, Lombard 
Street, by Messrs. Bland, Gray and Stephenson. In 1763 
their style was Smith, Wright and Gray, which it continued 
to be until 1792, when the amalgamation took place "with 
Esdailes. The style of the new firm was Sir James Esdaile, 
Esdaile, Smith, Wright, Hammet and Co., and they carried 
on their business at 21, Lombard Street. 

In 1799 the Directory shows us that the new interest had 
left the firm, and that the style was Sir James Esdaile, Esdaile, 
Hammett, Esdaile and Hammet ; and this continued to be 
the style of the firm, with a few changes among the junior 
partners, who were apparently sons of the senior partners, 
until the year 1833, when the firm became Sir James Esdaile, 
Esdaile, Grenfell, Thomas and Co. 

This firm stopped payment in 1837; but they paid all their 
creditors by a loan of ;^Sooo that was advanced them by all

since been repaid, the last payment having been made on fhe 
3rd February, 1873. 

The panic of 1837 was called the American panic, from 
the circumstance that it originated with mercantile houses 
connected with the United States. The amount of gold in 
the bank of England was at such a low ebb that that establish- 
ment had to maintain its credit by a loan of ;£^2,ooo,ooo 
from the Bank of France. 

Everett and Co. 

This house originated in the firm of Newnham, Everett, 
Drummond, Tibbitts and Tanner, who started in 1785 at 
65, Lombard Street, where they continued to carry on busi- 
ness until 1 791, when they removed to 9, Mansion House 
Street. What appears to be a singular circumstance is, 
that in this year Mr. Tanner, who had been the junior 
partner in Newnhams, left them to become junior partner in 
another new firm that started in 17 91 under the style of 
Harcourt, Blake, Sansom, Postlethwaite and Tanner, who 
began operations in the very premises, No. 65, Lombard 
Street, which had been occupied by Newnhams. 

In 1 80 1 the number of their house was 2, Mansion House 
Street ; in the following year the name of Drummond is 
not seen, and another Mr. Everett became junior partner. 
In 18 10 another change occurred by Mr. Tibbits' name 
disappearing from the list, and they were again located at 9, 
Mansion House Street. I cannot help thinking that the 
change to 2 is an error in the Directory, as they probably 
never left No. 9 at all. 

In 1 81 2 the style of the firm became Everett, Walker, 
Maltby, Ellis and Co., which continued until 1825, on 14th 
December of which year they failed. 

Farendon, William, 

Goldsmith, was Sheriff in 1281 ; he gave his name to the 
City Ward, which still retains its designation. He purchased 
" all the Aldermanrie and the appurtenances within the City 
of London and suburbs of the same, between Ludgate and 
Newgate and also without the same gates, which Ankerirus 
de Avene held during his life, by grant of Thomas Avene."

London by Edward II. in 1308. 

Peltham and Co. 

Had their origin in the firm of Thomas Gill and Co. about 
1809, at 42, Lombard Street. In 1831 the style of this firm 
became Thomas and Feltham; and in 1834 John Feltham 
and Co., consisting of John Feltham and John Cooper. In 
1859 they left Lombard Street and went to No. 2, Ball 
Alley, in the same street, where they remained until 1864, 
after which no more is seen of them. 

fowles, Thomas, 

Was a goldsmith in the time of Charles the Second, having 
a shop at the Black Lion in Fleet Street. 

As early as 1666 his name appears in the ledgers of 
Edward Backwell and of Blanchard and Child. Judging 
from the size of his account in the books of the former, he 
must have been doing a large trade as a banker. 

He is recorded in the Little London Directory of 1677 as 
keeping running cashes. 

In 1 69 1 Sir Thomas Fowles left an annuity, or fee-farm 
rent, of J[,\o to the Goldsmiths' Company, from the Bishop 
of Bath and Wells, to pay 40s. yearly, on St. Thomas' Day, 
to five poor widows of the Company during their lives. 

I am half inclined to think that this business was con- 
tinued by Robert Fowles and John Mead ; but that conjec- 
ture cannot be verified.

Company," to have made a golden crown for Edward's 
second queen, Margaret. 

Puller, Banbury, and Co., 77, Lombard Street. 

The business of this firm originated in that of Atkins, 
Honey wood, and Fuller, who first appear in the list of bankers 
in the London Directory for 1738, as carrying on trade in 
Lombard Street. The style of the firm became Honeywood

and Fuller in 1746, in which year the name of J. Halford 
is seen witnessing signatures for his masters, Honejnvood 
and Fuller; and this continued to be the style until 1754, 
when I find that J. Vaughan endorsed drafts for Honeywood,. 
Fuller, and Co. About this time they moved to Birchin 
Lane. It appears to have been a common practice for 
bankers in the last century to admit their clerks into partner- 
ship. It certainly was adopted by this firm, as both J. Hal- 
ford and J. Vaughan subsequently became partners, as will 
be presently shown. 

Between 1761 and 1764 the name of Honey wood dis- 
appeared from connection with this house, and the style of 
the firm became Fuller and Cope. In 1770 it became 
Fuller, Blake, and Halford. About 1774 they moved to* 
84, Comhill. The firm then was Fuller, Halford, and 
Vaughan ; and in 1778, Fuller, Son, Halford, and Vaughan. 
The next change occurred in 1781, when the firm was 
styled Richard Fuller, Sons, and Vaughan. Richard Fuller 
was Member of Parliament for Steyning in 1768. Between 
1 781 and 1805 another change took place, as in the latter 
year the name of Richard Fuller, sen., is not seen, nor that 
of J. Vaughan, the style of the firm becoming Richard 
Fuller, George Fuller, and Co. Subsequently, about 1827,. 
it became Fullers and Co. In 1840 they moved from 
Cornhill to 65, and, a few years later, to dd^ Moorgate Street. 
The members of the firm in 1847 were Richard Fuller, 
George Arthur Fuller, and William Walter Fuller ; the same 
style continuing until 1859, when they amalgamated with 
Sapte, Muspratt, Banbury, and Co., of 77, Lombard Street, 
when the firm became Fuller, Banbury, Nix, and Mathie- 
son. They still occupy the premises, 77, Lombard Street. 

For the various changes in the firm of Sapte and Co., see 
under that head. 

The firm now consists of the following partners : —

Oines, Gteorge and William, 

Were bankers at the sign of the Rose and Crown in Lom- 
j bard Street. The first mention of them is in the London 
Directory for the year 1759. In 1770 the Rose and Crown 
was numbered 50, Lombard Street, and the style of the firm 
was Gines and Atkinson. They do not appear in the list of 
bankers after the year 1781, and in 1782 we find Messrs. 
Barclay, Bevan, and Co. had located themselves in their 
premises.

Avon, and another by Cross, Fry and Co. of Bristol. 

Olyn, imis and Co. 

This firm, which has the reputation of having a larger 
business than any other private banking house in the city 
of London, appears to have commenced in Lombard Street 
(so far as can be told by the London Directory) between 
the years 1740 and 1754, the precise date being difficult 
to ascertain in consequence of no list of bankers being forth- 
coming for the interval between those two dates. The style 
of the firm in 1754 was Vere, Glyn, and Hallifax. 



58 A HANDBOOK OF 

There is little doubt but that the firms of Vere, Gljrn, and 
Co. and Vere, Asgill, and Co. had a common origin and were 
started by Mr. Joseph Vere,* and that between 1752 and 
1754 a dissolution took place in the partnership, as we find 
upon a cash note of Messrs. Samuel Child and Co., of Sept. 
1752, the following endorsement: "J. Meredith," witness 
T. Huck for Messrs. Vere, Asgill, and Co.; and upon a 
similar note of Child and Backwells, in Feb. 1754: 
" Robt. Carr," witness T. Huck for Messrs. Vere, Glyn, and 
Co. The latter firm moved to Birchin Lane, whereas Asgill 
and Co. remained in Lombard Street. In 1754 Henry Mitton 
witnessed signatures for the firm, and he was subsequently 
admitted into the partnership. 

In 1770 their house in Birchin Lane was numbered 18 ; 
and the firm consisted of Sir Richard Glyn, knight and 
baronet, M.P. for the Qty of London, Alderman of Dow- 
gate Ward, and a colonel of the City Militia ; and Thomas 
Hallifax, who was Alderman of Aldersgate Ward. About 
1773 Sir Richard Glyn retired, and Sir Thomas Hallifax 
assumed three partners ; the firm in that year consisting of 
Sir Thomas Hallifax, Mills, R. C. Glyn, and Mitton. The 
next change to be noted was in 1777, when Mr. Charles 
Mills came into the firm as fourth partner. In 1783 or 
1784 Mr. Mills senior's name disappeared from the firm, 
which became Sir Thomas Hallifax, Richard Carr Glyn, 
Charles Mills, and Henry Mitton. In 1789 the name of 
Sir Thomas Hallifax is not seen, and the business was con- 
ducted at 12, Birchin Lane by R. C. Glyn, Mills, and Mitton. 
About 1790, according to the Directory, Richard Carr Glyn 
was knighted. In 1 797 the firm was Glyn, Mills, Hallifax, and 
Co., and it continued until 181 1, when the style of the firm 
became Glyn, Mills, Hallifax, Glyn and Co.; so continuing 
until 1823, when another Mr. Mills came into it In 1826 
they moved to their present premises. No. 67, Lombard 
Street, which house belongs to the Goldsmiths' Company, 
, having been left to them by Sir Martin Bowes, the eminent 
goldsmith in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. 

The style of the firm was again altered in 1830 to Sir R. C. 
Glyn, Hallifax, Mills and Co., consisting of Thomas Hallifax, 
Charles Mills, Sir Richard P. Glyn, Bart., George Carr Glyn, 

* A Joseph Vere was clerk to Thomas Martin and Co., in I7I9«

Thomas Hallifax, junr., and Edward Wheler Mills. In 1851 
it became Glyn, Mills and Co., which it continued to be 
until 1864, when they amalgamated with the old firm of 
Curries and Co. of Corahill, since which time the style of the 
firm has been Glyn, Mills, Currie and Co. 

In 1869 Sir George Carr Glyn was created a peer under 
the title of Baron Wolverton. The present Lord Wolverton 
succeeded to the title in 1873. 

The firm consists of the foUowing partners :

Mr. Lawson says * that the private bankers of whom we 
have the earliest cognizance were in a very different position 
fi*om that occupied by their representatives of the present 
day. The first were Jews, aliens in blood and religion ; con- 
temned, hated, feared and despised; who were made 
victims of more barbarous cruelties and oppressions than any 
other people whatever. They were originally introduced 
into England by William the Conqueror. They invented bills 
of exchange, and their industry and frugality caused them to 
accumulate vast sums of treasure, which they lent out at high 
interest to the nobility and others upon the security of their 
estates. 

The Jews continued to be robbed and illtreated imder a 
succession of sovereigns until their oppression culminated in 
the reign of Edward the First, who robbed 15,000 Jews of 
their wealth, and banished them all. 

The Lombards, or Longobards, came from Italy and suc- 
ceeded the Jews. They combined the several occupations 
of goldsmith, pawnbroker, and banker. Stow, describing the 
streets in the vicinity of the present buildings of the Bank 
and Royal Exchange, says : " Then have ye Lombard Street, 
so called of the Longobards and other merchants, strangers 
of divers nations, assembling there twice every day, of what 
original or continuance I have not read of record, more than 
that Edward II., in the twelfth year of his reign, confirmed a 
messuage sometime belonging to Robert Turke, abutting on

mon fund, or joint-stock, formed by the contributions of a 
multitude of persons. 

"As is explained in a subsequent chapter, the State of Venice, 
being hard pressed in war in 117 1, levied a forced loan from 
its citizens, and promised them interest in perpetuity at four 
per cent. ; and this loan, or public debt, was called a banco, 
or monte. Certain commissioners were appointed to manage 
the loan who were called the Camera degli Imfirestiti, or 
Chamber of Loans ; and their office, where the interest was 
paid and the stock was transferred, was also called Banco or 
Monte. The * Bank* of Venice was, therefore, nothing but 
a public debt, managed by commissioners. Two subsequent 
loans were made, called Monte Nuovo and Monte Nuovis- 
simo, of the same nature; and it was not till 1587 that these 
commissioners were appointed to receive public cash on 
deposit, and became what we call a bank. There is no 
doubt whatever that the words monte and banco are equi- 
valent in Italian, and were first applied to a public debt, and 
then afterwards to the office in which it was managed." 

Mr. Macleod further adds that the word " bank" means a 
general contribution received from the public, in exchange 
for which credit is created, and that the business of a "banker" 
is to create credit. 

When Charles the First was refused a loan by the City of 
London, he was advised by his ministers to seize upon the 
money that had been deposited in the Royal Mint, in the 
Tower of London, by the Lombards and Goldsmiths, amount- 
ing in all to the sum of ^£'2 00, 000 ; which operation was 
the cause of ruin to many. The goldsmiths had up to that 
time been in the habit of placing their money there for se- 
curity ; but henceforth they were forced to keep it in their 
own shops, and to lend it out to customers at interest 

After this shameful robbery by the King of the goldsmiths' 
money, it is not surprising that the Goldsmiths' Company 
should have subscribed cash and men to help Cromwell in 
the Civil Wars. 

During the Commonwealth the number of goldsmiths 
increased considerably j and they then commenced to receive 
moneys of noblemen and gentlemen, who deposited their sur- 
plus cash with them for safe custody. The goldsmiths 
usually issued receipts or cash-notes for the same, payable on 
-demand ; and these receipts passed from hand to hand and 



62 A HANDBOOK OJF 

were called goldsmiths'- notes. A customer wishing to with- 
draw any sum, would draw a note or draft payable to his 
own or some one else's order ; and this was the origin of 
cheques. 

Charles the Second being distressed for money (with him 
not an unusual circumstance), and not wishing to go before 
the House of Commons, summoned together his ministers 
to take counsel as to the best way of obtaining the sum of 
;£'i, 5 00,000 without the aid of Parliament. 

The King promised the Lord Treasurer's place to any one 
who could suggest the means. 

After the Restoration the goldsmiths were in the habit of 
depositing in the Exchequer their floating capital, such as 
they did not require for their business, for the use of which 
the King gave them high interest. 

Lord Ashley had unguardedly communicated to Sir Thomas 
Clifford the expedient of shutting up the Exchequer and 
seizing these accumulations. Sir Thomas instantly went 
before the King, infonning his Majesty that he had hit on a 
good notion. " Odd's fish !" cried his Majesty, ** I will be 
as good as my word, if you can find the money." Sir 
Thomas then informed the King that the bankers had 
;£'i,5oo,ooo in the Exchequer, which money he could obtain 
by shutting it up. 

Accordingly on the 2nd of January, 1672, the Exchequer 
was closed, and all payments to the bankers were suspended; 
this novel mode of relieving the Royal necessities causing 
ruin, not only to most of the goldsmiths, but likewise to 
many of their customers. The exact amount of money in 
the Exchequer at that time was ;£^ 1,3 2 8, 5 26. As a reward 
for this robbery. Sir Thomas Clifford was made Lord High 
Treasurer, and raised to the peerage. 

The King at first intended to close the Exchequer only 
for one year j but year after year passed, and neither prin- 
cipal nor interest was returned. 

Public indignation rose to such a height at this injustice, 
that on the i6th April, 1677, just five years after the seizure, 
the King caused Letters Patent to be granted to each of those 
goldsmiths who had entrusted their money to the Exchequer, 
covenanting to pay interest at the rate of six per cent 
per annum. The obligation was observed up to Lady Day, 
1683, when it ceased; and none was paid at all by James 



LONDON BANKERS, 63 

the Second. In the reign of William the Third, a great stir 
was made, and the bankers not only lost all their interest, 
but in the end were paid only half of their original debt. 
It was the first item with which the National Debt was 
charged, and it ultimately became a part of the celebrated 
South Sea Fund. 

These old goldsmiths, besides doing ordinary bankers* and 
goldsmiths' business, advanced money upon pledges, as the 
pawnbrokers do now. In the early ledgers of Edward Back- 
well and of Blanchard and Child, accounts may be seen 
headed " Pawnes,*' to which all interest and profit arising 
from money lent on pledges, or more marketable security, 
was placed. 

In the days of Charles the Second they frequently charged 
as much as twenty and thirty per cent, for money, while they 
never appear to have allowed more than six per cent, on 
deposit 

Goslings and Sharpe. 

This bank is of considerable antiquity. It originated, in 
common with many others, in a goldsmith's business carried 
on by one Henry Pinckney, who was sometimes called Major 
Pinckney, of the Three Squirrels, over and against St. Dun- 
stan's Church. The first record of him was in or about the 
year 1650. He is mentioned in Boyne as having issued a 
farthing token. Mr. Noble, in his " Memorials of Temple 
Bar," states that the great fire having destroyed the house, 
the terms of rebuilding were settled by the Commissioners 
in April, 1667; and in the marking out, it appears that 
" Major Pinckney's" property consisted of four houses 
leading on the south frontage " to the Temple Garden" — 
probably the churchyard. Again, the same able authority 
infers from the occurrence in an advertisement in July, 167 1, 
of the address of William Pinckney, goldsmith, at the "Golden 
Dragon," near the Inner Temple Gate, that it was the house 
adjoining the " Three Squirrels," which subsequently became 
the house now No. 19, Fleet Street. Over the centre window 

\ of the present house the old sign of the " Three Squirrels" 
may still be seen in the ironwork. The original sign, which 
is in solid silver, is preserved and to be seen in the firont 

j shop. 

The name of William Pincknye (Sarah Pinckney of St 



^ A HANDBOOK OF 

Dunstans, London, the relict of William Pinckney, died in 
i68i,and mentioned in her will Philip and Ismael Pinckney,*) 
appears in the ledgers of Messrs. Blanchard and Child in 
; 1663, as keeping an account with them, as all the principal 
goldsmiths did for the sake of convenience. 

The name of Philip Pinckney I have met with as an en- 
dorsement to a bank-note in 1712 ; and a draft drawn upon 
Sir Francis Child by the Earl of Gainsborough, dated y* 1 2th 
May, 1705, runs as follows : — 

" Sir, — I desire you to pay unto Mr. Pinckney, goldsmith, 
three days after sight of this, the summe of forty one pounds 
fourteen shillings." 

This interesting old draft is endorsed by " P. Pinckney ;" 
and it is the last item that has been observed of the Pinckneys. 
The business appears to have been carried on subsequently 
in the name of Chambers. 

The following remarkable circumstance has been noted, 

namely, that one family of the name of Chambers bears three 

squirrels in their arms. Might not this family have adopted 

; those arms from the fact of their being located at the house 

of that sign ? 

It is quite reasonable to suppose that Mr. Pinckney, origi- 
nally described of the Three Squirrels in 1650, and in 167 1 
of the Golden Dragon, moved his business next door. A 
few years later — in 1693 — ^John Chambers appears to have 
been at the Three Squirrels. It is my opinion that these two 
houses were knocked into one, and that the two businesses, 
the one of Pinckney and the other of Chambers, were carried 
on by the latter goldsmith and banker, from an early date in 
the eighteenth century. 

In 1707 there was a goldsmith in Fleet Street of the name 
of James Chambers; and from 1734 to 1741 Messrs. Wm. 
Chambers and Usbome were at the Three Squirrels in Fleet 
Street. The endorsement of that firm appears several times 
upon Messrs. Child and Co.'s notes and drafts of that period. 
It is to be regretted that no lists of goldsmiths can be 
, obtained for those early dates to enable us to clear up these 
difficulties.

Pinckney of Bradford-on-Avon,

'* The name of Gosling," says Mr. Noble in his " Memorials 

i of Temple Bar," " first became associated with the firm in 

1674, for among numerous records of the Secret Service 

moneys expended in the time of Charles the Second and 

James the Second, occurs this entry : — 

"To Richard Bokenham in full for several parcells of 
gold and silver lace bought of Wm. Gostling and partners 
on May 2, 1674, by the Dutchess of Cleaveland for the 
wedding cloaths of the Lady Sussex and Litchfield, 
^646 8s. 6d." 

"Now this William Gosling was subsequently knighted, 
and became Alderman of the Ward, 1684 (when he was 
sheriff) to 1686. And his descendant, Francis (also knighted) 
was originally a bookseller, succeeding * R. Gosling ' at the 
Mitre and Crown, opposite St Dunstan's Church, who 
flourished between 17 14 and 1740. It was Sir Francis 
Gosling who was bookseller to Browne Willis, the author of 
*The Survey of the English Cathedrals,' who, having left off 
bookselling in 1756, was elected Alderman, became Sheriff 
in 1758, and died at Fulham, 29th December, 1768, before 
he had reached the Mayoralty." 

I do not think that the William Gostling above-mentioned 
had anything to do with the present house of the Three 
Squirrels, but hold that he was a goldsmith and bookseller, 
and finally bookseller only, until between the years 1741 and 
1750 (here a blank occurs owing to there being no published 
lists to hand) when the firm of Chambers and Usborne is no 
more seen, and a new firm styled " Gosling and Bennett " 
takes their place (in 1750) at the Three Squirrels ; that con- 
tinuing to be the style of the firm until 1757. 

On a draft in the possession of Messrs. Child and Co., 
dated 1754, the name of John Usborne occurs, together 
with the signatures of Messrs. Gosling and Bennett, witnessed 
by John Evans. In 1755 the signature of the firm was 
witnessed by Mr. Benj. Sharpe, who was subsequently 
admitted into the firm. In 1757 the firm became Gosling, 
Bennett and Gosling. In 1762 Sir Francis Gosling was 
Alderman of the ward of Farringdon Without. In 1766 
the firm was Sir Francis Gosling, Gosling and Clive. In 
1774 it was Gosling, Clive and posling, and in 1779 Robert 
and Francis Gosling. In 1796 it was Francis Gosling,

177a His career was of short duration, as his name does 
not appear in the Directory after 1778. 

Greene and Co., 1718—42. (See Willis.) 

Oresham, Sir Thomas, 

A goldsmith and merchant of great renown in the time of 
Elizabeth, carried on business at the sign of the Grasshopper 
in Lombard Street, — upon the site of the present bank of 
Messrs. Martin and Co., 68, Lombard Street, who have 
always had the same sign, and claim that their business dates 
back to the time of Gresham. 

Sir Thomas Gresham *s father, Sir Richard Gresham, 
was the " King's Exchanger " in the reign of Henry the 
Eighth, by whom he was greatly esteemed. Sir Thomas 
succeeded his father in this office, but was superseded by 
Queen Mary on her accession to the throne. He was, how- 
ever, afterwards restored. 

He is said to have been one of the earliest merchants who 
traded to the East Indies, by which ventures he accumulated 
vast riches. 

Lawson, in his " History of Banking," states that upon 
one occasion, having sent ships out to the East Indies, he 
had miscalculated the date at which they would return — a 
circumstance that caused him much embarrassment He, 
however, soon recovered from his temporary inconvenience. 
One day, while despondingly walking about the Bourse, or 
Exchange, which was then held in Lombard Street, a sailor 
presented him with a letter from the captain of one of his 
ships, which contained the gratifying information that two of 
them had arrived safe from the East Indies, and that the 



LONDON BANKERS, 67 

box which the bearer would deliver contained some diamonds 
and pearls of great value, as a sample of the riches the ships 
had brought home. 

He had a private house of great magnificence in Bishops- 
gate Street, which was afterwards known as Gresham Col- 
lege. 

Upon reference to Lyson's " Environs of London," it will 
be seen that "between 1557 and 1570 Heston and Osterley 
came into the possession of Sir Thomas Gresham, and the 
Park was enclosed by him. After he had enclosed the 
Park at Osterley, he began to re-build the Manor House, 
but it was not completed until 1577. In the park is a 
fair heronie." 

In 1578 Queen Elizabeth visited Osterley, when Sir 
Thomas Gresham entertained Her Majesty in a very mag- 
\ nificent manner. 

There is a tradition that Queen Elizabeth admired the 
house and park very much, with the single exception of a 
walled courtyard. When the Queen had retired for the 
night, Sir Thomas Gresham procured all the men he was 
able, and set them to work and demolished it. On Her 
Majesty's re-appearance in the morning, she was much grati- 
fied at seeing the improvement Sir Thomas had made at her 
suggestion. 

Towards the end of the seventeenth century, Osterley Park 
came into the possession of Sir Francis Child, whose 
descendant on the female side (the Earl of Jersey) still 
possesses it. 

Sir Thomas Gresham founded the Royal Exchange, of 
which the first stone was laid on June 7, 1566, and the build- 
ing opened by Queen Elizabeth in person on January 23, 
1570 — I. The following account of the ceremony is given 
by Stow :— 

" The Queen's Majesty, attended with her nobility, came 
firom her house at the Strand, called Somerset House, and 
entered the city by Temple Bar, through Fleet Street, Cheap, 
and so by the north side of the burse, through Threadneedle 
Street, to Sir Thomas Gresham's house in Bishopsgate 
Street, where she dined. After dinner her Majesty returned 
, through Comhill, entered the burse on the south side, and 
after that she had viewed every part thereof above the 
ground, especially the pawn, which was richly furnished 

5—2 



68 A HANDBOOK OF 

With all sorts of the finest wares in the city, she caused the 
same burse, by a herald and trumpet, to be proclaimed * The 
Royal Exchange,* and so to be called from thenceforth, and 
not otherwise." 

This building was destroyed by the Great Fire of t666. 
Sir Thomas Gresham likewise founded Gresham College, 
which he endowed with six professorships, viz., Divinity, 
Law, Physic, Philosophy, Astronomy, and Music, with ^50 
a-year to each, for the purpose of giving gratuitous lectures 
on these sciences to the citizens of London for ever. They 
are delivered in Latin and in English to the present day in 
Basinghall Street. 

To Gresham we owe the abolition of loans from Foreign 
States. By his counsel Elizabeth was induced, when a loan 
was necessary, " not to use strangers, but her own subjects, 
that it might be seen what a prince of power she was." 

According to Mr. Francis, " Her first applications to the 
citizens were not met with sufficient alacrity to please the 
imperious queen. She who could imprison a favourite for 
life, or send a rival to the block, was checked by her plebeian 
but wealthy subjects. The pride of Henry the Eighth had 
descended with his Crown to his daughter, and she caused 
it to be intimated to the unwilling merchants that to borrow 
their money was a matter of great grace and favour." 

As much as twelve and fourteen per cent was paid for the 
accommodation of money in this reign. 

I extract from Lawson's " History of Banking" the follow- 
ing singular anecdote related of this princely merchant : — 

The Spanish Ambassador to the English Court having 
extolled the great riches of the King, his master, and of the 
grandees of his kingdom before Queen Elizabeth, Sir Thomas, 
who was present, told him that the Queen had subjects who, 
at one meal, expended not only as much as the daily 
revenues of his King, but also of all his grandees, and added, 
'* This I will prove any day, and lay you a considerable sum 
on the result." 

The Spanish ambassador soon after came unawares to the 
house of Sir Thomas, and dined with him , when, finding only 
an ordinary meal, he said, " Well, sir, you have lost your 
wager." 

" Not at all," replied Sir Thomas ; " and this you shall 
presently see." He then pulled out a box from his pocket, 



LONDON BANKERS. 69 

and, taking one of the largest and finest eastern pearls out 
of it, exhibited it to the Ambassador; after which, he ground 
it, and drank the powder of it in a glass ol wine, to the health 
of the Queen his mistress. 

" My Lord Ambassador," said Sir Thomas, " you know I 
have often refused ;^ 15,000 for that pearl. Have I lost or 
won?" 

" I yield the wager as lost,'* said the Ambassador, "and I 
do not think there are four subjects in the world that would 
do as much for their sovereign." 

At his death, which took in 1579, the bulk of his wealth 
was found to consist of gold chams. He was buried in St. 
Helen's Church, Bishopsgate. The inscription on the 
stone is : — 

"Sir Thomas Gresham, Knight, buried 15th December, 

1579." 

Grote and Co., 1820—38. (See Prescott.) 



A banker in London in the time of Charles the Second. 
Nothing can be ascertained as to the Christian name or place 
of residence of this man. In the ** History" of his own time. 
Bishop Burnet mentions his trial for high treason, and I 
propose to give it in extenso^ it being of an interesting nature. 
It would appear that he was supposed to have been impli- 
cated with some of the conspirators of the Rye House Plot. 
It runs thus : — " In Armstrong's * pocket, when he was taken; 
a letter was found written by Haies, a banker in London, 
directed to another name, which was believed a feigned one* 
In it credit was given him upon Haies's correspondent in 
Holland for money ; he was desired not to be too lavish, and 
he was promised that he should be supplied as he needed it. 
Here was an abetting of a man outlawed for treason. Much 
pains was taken on Haies, both by persuasion and threaten- 
ing, to induce him to discover that whole cabal of men, that, 
it seemed, joined in a common purse to supply those who 
had fled beyond sea on account of the plot And they 

* Sir Thomas Armstrong was hanged at Tyburn on 20th June, 1684, for 
his connection with the Rye House Plot. His head was set up on Temple 
Bar. 



70 A HANDBOOK OF 

hoped to know all Monmouth's friends, and either to have 
attainted them, or at least to have fined them severely for it. 
But Haies showed a fidelity and courage far beyond what 
could have been expected from such a man, so he was brought 
to trial. 

" He made a strong defence. The letter was not exactly 
like his hand. It was not addressed to Armstrong, but to 
another person, from whom he perhaps had it. No entry 
was made of it in, his books, nor of any sum paid in upon it. 
But his main defence was, that a banker examined into no 
person's concerns, and, therefore, when money or good 
security was brought him, he gave bills of exchange, or letters 
of credit, as they were desired. Jeffreys pressed the jury, in 
his impetuous way, to find Haies guilty of high treason ; 
because, though there was not a witness against Haies, but 
only presumptions appeared upon the proof, yet, Jeffrey 
said, it was proved by two witnesses that the letter was found 
in Armstrong's, pocket, and that was sutficient, the rest 
appearing by circumstances. The little difference between 
the writing in the letter and his ordinary hand, was said to be 
only a feint to hide it, which made him the more guilty. He 
required the jury to bring him in guilty, and said that the 
King's life and safety depended upon his trial ; so that, if 
they did it not, they exposed the King to a new Rye-plot, 
with other extravagancies with which his fury prompted him. 
But a jury of merchants could not be wrought up to this 
pitch. So he was acquitted, which mortified the Court a 
little, for they had reckoned that now juries were to be only 
a point of form in a trial, and that they were always to find 
bills as they were directed." 

The name of Haies does not appear in the list of gold- 
smiths who kept running cashes ; but in the Directory of a 
collection of the merchants living in and about the City of 
London in 1677, the following names are found : — 

Claud Hayes, Fanchurch Street : John Hayes, Little St. 
Hellens ; James and Joseph Hayes, Gracechurch Street 

Hallett and Co., 

14, Great George Street, Westminster. This business, con- 
sisting of banking and navy agency, was established at the 
above address about 1822 by Messrs. John and Thomas 
Maude and Charles W. Hallett. After 1825 the firm dis- 



LONDON BANKERS. 71 

appeared from the list of bankers ; but it is to be found again 
in 1854 under the style of Hallett, Robinson and Co. In 
1858 it became Hallett, Maude and Hallett, and in 1862 
Maude and Hallett ; in that year they amalgamated with a 
navy agent of the name of Ommaney, and the style of the 
firm was changed to Hallett, Ommaney and Co. They do 
not appear in the Directory after 1866, when they ceased to 
exist as bankers ; but the navy agency is still continued at 
7, St Martin's Place, under the style of Hallett and Co. 

Halliday and Co. 

The first mention of this firm is in 1770, when the London 
Directory shows that Halliday, Flight, Halliday and Co. were 
at 34, Lombard Street. On reference to the same source of 
information, I find that in 1776 they had moved to 3, Free- 
man's Court, Cornhill, and the style of the firm had become 
Halliday, Duntze, Praed and Co. It is a singular coincidence 
that in this year, when the well-known banking name of 
Praed first appeared in the London Directory, there should 
be two of that name in two separate firms ; one in Halliday's, 
and the other in partnership with Biddulph and Co. In 
1 78 1 that name disappears from Halliday's, which had become 
Halliday, Duntze, Saunders and Hamilton. They became 
extinct after 1782. 

Halli&x and Co., 1774—88. (See Glyn.) 

Hammersley and Co. 

Mr. Hammersley was one of the original partners in the 
firm of Ransom, Morland and Hammersley, who started 
banking business at 57, Pall Mall, in 1786. 

In 1796 he retired from that firm to establish a bank of 
his own at 76, Pall Mall. The style of the firm was Ham- 
mersley, Montolieu, Brooksbank, Greenwood and Drewe. 
In 1806 it became Hammersley, Greenwood, Drewe and 
Brooksbank, and in 1823 they moved to 69, Pall Mall, the 
\ style of the firm becoming Hammersley, Greenwood and 
Brooksbank. This business continued until 1840, when it 
was absorbed by Messrs. Coutts and Co., who took on all 
the clerks, to whom they behaved very generously, pension- 
ing off some of the old ones. 

In 1842 the London Joint-Stock Bank opened a branch 
on these premises.

Hanbory and Co. 

Established about 1769 by Messrs. Hanbury, Taylor, 
Lloyd and Bowman at 14, Lombard Street. In 1779 they 
moved to 60, Lombard Street In 1 784 the name of Han- 
bury disappeared from the firm, and it became Taylor, Lloyd 
and Bowman. In 1791 it was Taylor, Lloyd, Hanbury and 
Co. ; in 1801, Taylor, Lloyd, Hanbury and Bowman. In 
1815 another change took place in the style of the firm, the 
Directory for t8i6 recording it as Hanbury, Taylor and 
Lloyd. In 1858 it was Hanbury and Lloyd, which con- 
tinued to be the style until 1864, when it was amalgamated 
with Bariiett, Hoare and Co. 

Mr. Samuel Hoare informs me that the Hanburys are one 
of the oldest Essex families, their residence at Holfield 
Grange extending over three hundred years. 

Hand, William. 

A goldsmith carrying On his trade in Russell Street, Covent 
Garden in 17 10. 

Hankeys and Co. 

This was one of the oldest banking houses in the City of 
London. 

Mr. Thomas Hankey, of Chester Square, the senior sur- 
viving member of the firm ot Hankey and Co., informs me 
that he does not know the actual date of the establishment 
of this banking-house, but he had frequently seen an old 
cash-book of daily receipts and payments dated (he believed) 

1 hat they were originally goldsmiths there is no doubt ; 
and they probably were also pawnbrokers, as most goldsmiths 
of that period embraced that profitable business in their 
trade. 

On reference to the Royal Annual Kalendar of 1765, it 
will be seen that Sir Joseph and Sir 1 hcmas Hankey were 
at the sign of the "Three Golden Balls," in Fenchurch 
Street, — a sign very suggestive of their origin and descent 
from the early Longobards. 

The sign of the house was commonly known as the 
"Golden Ball" in Fenchurch Street, and Mr. Thomas 



LONDON BANKERS. 75 

Hankey states that he has always been led to believe that his 
predecessors were goldsmiths at a shop nearly opposite No. 
7, Fenchurch Street, and that the house was established as a 
" bank" about the same time as Child's. 

The name appears as an endorsement on a draft drawn by 
Silvanus Bevan on Child's, dated 25 September, 1704 : 
** Witness JefFery Viber fFor my masters Henry Hankey 
and Co.," and several more show the same style of the firm 
up to 1735. On another draft, dated 1722, Thomas Hankey 
witnesses a signature for his father, Henry Hankey. About 
1735 ^^ was knighted, as in that year the firm was Sir Henry 
Hankey and Sons. In 1737 it was Joseph Hankey Esq., 
and Co. He also was subsequently knighted, as evidenced 
by the fact that from 1739 to 1768 the style of the firm was 
Sir Joseph Hankey and Co. In the latter year the partners 
were Sir Joseph Hankey, Sir Thomas Hankey, Joseph Chap- 
lin Hankey, Thomas Hankey and Stephen Hall. Sir Joseph 
Hankey was Alderman of Langboume ward. In 1774 Joseph 
Chaplin Hankey was the head partnar; and in 1778 Thomas 
Hankey filled that position, which he maintained until 1793, 
when he died. In 1794 the firm consisted of J. C. Hankey^ 
Stephen Hall, Robert Hankey, Richard Hankey, Augustus 
Hankey and Co. 

In 1805 it was styled Hankey, Hall, Hankey and Alers; 
and from 1812 to 1865 it was known by the style of Hankeys 
and Co. No amalgamation with any other firm ever took 
place until 1865, when the old and time-honoured firm of 
Hankeys and Co. merged into the Consolidated Bank, which 
had started only the year before.

Sir Charles Raymond, Bart., appears to have severed his 
connection with Raymond, Vere, Low and Fletcher in 1778, 
and started another bank, under the style of Raymond 
Harley, Webber and Co., at George Street, Mansion House. 
In 1781 it became Raymond, Harley, Lloyd and Cameron; 
and in 1789 Thomas Harley, Cameron and Sons was the 
style of the firm. In the course of that year it became 
extinct

His punishment, as ordered by the Wardens, was that he 
should be "had into y' kechyn of the Hall, and there 
stripped naked, and by the hands of his master beaten until 
such time as he raised blood upon his body, in likewise as 
he did upon his mistress, and that he should then be made

Henton, Brown and Son, 174^— 53- (See Brown.) 
Hercy and Co., 1776. (See Chambers.) 
Herries, Farqnhar and Co. 

This banking-house was established on the 1st October, 
1770, by Mr. Robert Herries, of Hall Dikes, Dumfriesshire, 
who had been one of the active partners in the firm of Coutts 
and Co., in the Strand. He was a man of enterprise and 
ability. He received his business education in Holland, in 
accordance with the custom of that period, and was for a 
short time a merchant in Barcelona. 

He subsequently instituted the novel idea of issuing " cir- 
cular notes," by whicn people wishing to travel abroad, and 
not caring to take much cash with them, could deposit a 
sum of money with Mr. Herries, and in exchange procure 
bills on London for amounts not less than ^10 each. 
These bills, or circular notes, were changeable at most towns

on the Continent, where Mr. Hemes had correspondents ; 
a list of them being given to the customer applying. 

It appears strange in these days that such a valuable 
invention as this should have been looked upon with distrust, 
but so it was. It is asserted that, when Mr. Herries first 
conceived the idea, he ventilated it to his then partner, Mr. 
Thomas Coutts, but he entirely disapproved of it ; in fact, it 
was the cause of his dissolving partnership with him, and 
setting up in St. James* Street. 

Sir Walter Farqubar, the present head of the house, has 
kindly furnished me with the names of the original partners 
in the firm of Robert Herries and Co. : — 

Robert Herries, Esq., of Hall Dikes, Dumfriesshire. 

Sir William Maxwell, of Sprinkell, Bart. 

Sir William Forbes, of Pitsiigo, Bart. 

James Hunter Blair, Esq., of Blairguhard, Ayrshire ; and 

Sir William Pulteney. 

The " circular note" system having been proved to answer 
so well, and to be such a profitable adjunct to the business of 
the bank, it subsequently induced Messrs. Coutts and Co., 
who had at the outset looked upon it with distrust, to take a 
prominent part in that branch of banking busmess. Of late 
3'ears Messrs. Glyn, Mills and Co., ard some of the joint- 
stock bankers, have adopted the same principle. 

Mr. Robert Herries was knighted about the year 1783, 
as in that year the style of the firm appears as Sir Robert 
Herries and Co. ; and it so continued until 1799, when the 
list of bankers in the London Directory indicates a change, 
the style of the firm becoming Messrs. Herries, Farquhar 
and Co. 

In March 1865 they formed an amalgamation with the firm 
of Call, Marten and Co., of Old Bond Street, who had been 
established, in about 1774, by Messrs. Pybus and Co. [For 
particulars of this see ** Call."] 

The present firm consists of the following partners : — 

Sir Walter Rockcliff Farquhar, Bart. 
William Chapman. 
Harvie Morton Farquhar. 
Thomas Palmer Chapman. 
Henry Farquhar. 
Walter R. Farquhar.

Heriot, James, 

was a descendant of the celebrated George Heriot, who was 
goldsmith to King James the Firsts and a benefactor to the 
i City of Edinburgh. 

It would appear that, upon the Stuarts coming to the 

throne of England, the Heriots migrated southwards, as in 

- the Little London Directory of 1677 we find James Heriot 

(George Heriot's brother gerraan) was a goldsmith keeping 

running cashes at the Naked Boy in Fleet Street. 

I have seen his name on a draft of 1691, and again in 
1701 — 2. 

On a draft addressed to Mr. Heriott, banker, in Fleet Street^ 
dated January 1707 the receipt is signed by "Harbord 
Heriott." The last time their name can be met with is on a 
draft dated 1717. 

Heywood, Eennard and Co. 

This banking business was started by Joseph Denison 
and Co. in 1806, at 16, St. Mary Axe. The list of bankers 
in the London Directory for 18 14 gives them a different 
address, i.e., 106, Fenchurch Strtet. In 1837 the style of 
the firm became Denison, Heywood, Kennard and Co., and 
they had moved their business to 4, Lombard Street In 
185 1 the firm changed to Heywood, Kennard and Co. ; 
which was its style until 1864, when this business was merged 
into the Conbolidated BanL

Charles Hill and Sons, 17, West Smithfield. This business 
was started by Mr. Charles Hill, the father of Mr. George 
Hill, now head of the firm. He had been manager to Messrs. 
Sharpe and Sons, of West Smithfield, who failed in 1825 ; 
after which he imtnediately started as banker, and carried 
the business on in his sole name lor three or lour years, when 
he was joined by his sons, George Hill and John Hill. 
Charles Hill died in 1846, and George and John Hill carried 
on the business until April 1867, when John Hill died, and 
John HiiWyjuniory was taken into partnership with his imcle. 

The firm of Charles Hill -and Sons is now conducted by 
George Hill, John Hill, Henry Meakins Hill, and Herbert 
HiU.

Goldsmith. In 1663 ^^s name appears in Alderman Back- 
welFs ledgers as having an account with him. 

In 1677 the Little London Directory shows that John 
Hind and Thomis Garwood were keeping running cashes 
over against the Exchange in Gornhili. 

Hinton, Benjamin, 

Was a goldsmith keeping running cashes at the Flower de 
Luce in Lumbard Street^ in 1677. His name appears in 
Backwell's ledgers in 1670, as keeping a large account, which 
was at one time headed Benjamin Hinton and Gompany. 

Hinton, Thomas, 

Was probably a goldsmith, and a descendant of the above. 
His name appears upon an old draft dated 1717, signed by 
Thomas Crump for his master, Thomas Hinton. 

Hoares and Co. 

37, Fleet Street. This old firm had its origin in James 
Hore, a goldsmith, whom the Little London Directory of 
1677 describes as keeping running cashes at the Golden 
Bottle in* Gheapside. 

Mr. Noble* states that from a very scarce volume of 
family history, compiled by the well known antiquary. Sir 
Richard Golt Hoare (" Pedigrees and Memoirs, &c., of the 
Family of Hoare," piivately printed at Bath, 18 19) it appears 
that there was a William Hore, of Rishford, Devon, temp. 
Richard the Second, from whom (says our author) " I am 
inclined to think that our family came originally." Ralph, 
sixth son of William Hore of Rishford, was in 1654 a " citizen 
and cooper" of London, at St. Botolph's ; and in 1677 his son 
James was keeping ** running cash" as a goldsmith at the 
** Golden Bottle,'* Cheapside, where he was living in 1687. 
He died at Edmonton in 1694. Among the Secret Service 
moneys of James the Second, I find this payment : — 

" 1686. — To Gharles Duncombe and James Hore, Esqrs., 
two of the late Comrs. for executing the office of master 
worker of the Mint, in satisfaction of so much money by them 
expended and paid to several officers in passing warrants, and

Mr. Noble says that the present premises occupy the site 
of several buildings, 34 to 39, including the famous old 
" Mitre" Tavern of Dr. Johnson's time. So far as the number 
of houses included in the present bank of Messrs. Hoares 
is concerned, I make no demur ; but I do not agree in con- 
sidering the Old Mitre was one of them. For Cunningham, 
who is an authority upon London, states that the " Mitre" of 
Johnson and Boswell, — where Johnson used to drink his 
bottle of port and keep late hours, and where Oliver Gold- 
smith used occasionally to sup, — is still in existence in Mitre 
Court, Fleet Street, over against Fetter Lane. 

To return, however. Very little can be ascertained about 
James Hore, or when he joined Richard Hoare or Hoar.who 
was settled as a goldsmith in Fleet Street at the sign of the 
"Golden Bottle," about 1692. The following entry occurs 
among the debts of the great Hyde, Lord Clarendon : " To 
Mr. Hore, for plate £2^ los. 3d." 

The old sign of the ** Golden Bottle" may be seen from 
the street, over the doorway, upon entering the bank. Sir 
Richard Colt Hoare considers it to have been ".a barrel ; a 
sign adopted by James Hore of Cheapside from the circum- 
stance of his father, Ralph, being a citizen and cooper of the 
City of London." The popular version, says Mr. Noble, was 
that it represented the leathern bottle carried by the founder 
of the firm when he came to London to seek his fortune. 
The leathern bottle for carrying " of ale nut brown " is men- 
tioned as used by haymakers in 1682. 

The first mention of Richard Hoare, the goldsmith, is upon 
an old draft of Messrs. Child, drawn by a Mr. Thynne for 
One thousand pounds, dated 8th June, 1687. It bears the 
following endorsement : — " Mr. Child, pray pay the contents 
of this bill to Mr. Richard Hoare. Ja. Foster." 

" June y* i3'\ 1687.— Rec*» y° full of this bill one Thousand 
pounds — for M'. Richard Hoare, 

"p. John Arnold." 

It is very probable that Richard Hoare was originally of 
Cheapside, as in 1703 he was elected Alderman of Bread 
Street Ward. He was Sherifif in 1709, and Lord Mayor 
in 1712. 



LONDON BANKERS. 79 

Sir Richard Hoare, goldsmith, was classed among the 
" retainers general '* in the list of those who were to receive 
presents at Samuel Pepys* funeral in 1703. He was pre- 
sented with a mourning ring of the value of 20s., and his fore- 
man, Mr. Arnold (whom I just mentioned as receiving money 
from Mr. Child), with a ring valued at 15s. 

At foot of the lists of presents of rings and mourning 
given at Pepys' death and funeral, is the following memo- 
randum : — 

"That 2 of the Rings placed in the 15s. column were of 
the 20s. sort, and given to 2 (but which uncertain) of the 17 
persons thus marked, v ; so that the true number of each 
sort distributed, either at the funeral or since, to this 31st 
Dec, 1 7 10, has been provided as per Sir R. Hoare's account 
thereof." 

Sir Richard Hoare and Sir Francis Child are said to have 
united to make a run upon the Bank of England in 1707, 
when there was so much excitement caused by the rumoured 
invasion by the Pretender. It is affirmed that one of them 
had collected ;;^i 00,000, and the other a large sum, and 
pushed them at the Bank and demanded payment. The 
Bank did meet the sudden demand, but it put them to con- 
siderable inconvenience. 

Between 1706 and 17 18 the style of this firm was Sir 
Richard Hoare and Co., and the majority of drafts of that 
date (of Messrs. Child) bear the signature of Christopher 
Arnold, who signed for the house. 

In January, 1718, Sir Richard Hoare died, as may be 
gathered from the following extract from the Parish Register 
of St Dunstan's, Fleet Street : — 

"1718, Jan. 13. Sir Richard Hoar, from Fleet Street, in 
the Chancell.*' 

By a bequest dated in that year, he left to the Goldsmiths' 
Company ;^2oo, for distribution of 20s. each yearly, for 
ever, amongst eight poor widows of freemen, who should be 
of good life and conversation, and most frequently receive 
the Sacrament, according to the usages of the Church of 
England. 

A draft dated November 17 17, drawn to the order of Sir 
Richard Hoare, bears his own endorsement ; and upon the 
back of another is written : — 

" Pay the contents to S'' Richard Hoare and Partners in 



^ A HANDBOOK OF 

Fleet Street for y* use of y* Honourable and Rev"*. M'. 
Edward Finch. * Ralph Rigby.' 

** For S*' Rich*. Hoare, 

" Benj". Hoare." 
In April, 1718, Mr. Henry Hoare was the head partner. 
In 17 16 he, in conjunction with Lady Hastings, "Beau 
Nash," and others, founded Bath General Hospital, to which 
institution the firm have continued treasurers to this day. 
(See " Memorials of Temple Bar.'*) 

The firm was known by the style of Henry Hoare and Co. 
until about 1722, when Henry Hoare died, and left ;^20o 
to the Goldsmiths* Company to be laid out at interest, and 
^8 to be paid yearly to poor freemen or the widows of 
such. 

After the death of Henry Hoare, the firm became Benjamin 
Hoare and Co., the other partners probably being Henry 
Hoare, Richard Hoare, and Christopher Arnold, as their 
names all appear to endorsements of drafts between 1729 
and 1746. The firm was frequently styled Hoare and 
Arnold during this period. In the Directory of 1736 the 
name of Christopher Arnold alone appears as a banker of 
Fleet Street, which proves the inaccuracy of those lists at that 
time. In 1738 it was Benjamin and Henry Hoare, whereas 
those of 1740 and 1754 have Hoare and Arnold for the 
style. 

Sir Richard Hoare was an Alderman of Farringdon Ward 
Without. He succeeded Sir Francis Child in 1740 ; became 
Lord Mayor in 1745, and died in 1754, as proved by the 
register in St. Dunstan*s Church. — " 1754, Oct. 21, S*' 
Rich^ird Hoar, in S'' Richard Hoare's vault" 

Mr. Noble, in his ** Memoirs of Temple Bar," gives the 
following : — ** There is a curious and scarce broadside in 
existence, published by the second Sir Richard, in which he, 
at some length, entirely denies the false and malicious report 
which had been circulated that he had attempted a run on 
the Bank of England by sending for ten of their notes of ;;^io 
each, with the design to send several persons with the said 
notes to receive the money thereon, so as to effect his ill 
designs, and to bring a disreputation on the bank, and 
occasion a disturbance in the City,'' &c. 

I think that the story is highly improbable, for, during the 
time that this Sir Richard Hoare lived, ;^ioo demanded 



Z ON DON BANKERS. 8i 

from the Bank of England would no more have injured it, 
or have caused a run upon it, than a similar sum would at 
the present day. 

In 1754 the firm was styled Henry Hoare and Co., and in 
1763 it consisted of Henry Hoare, Richard Hoare and 
Richard Hoare. 

I have seen the signature of the above Richard Hoare 
signing for the firm in 1752, probably before he had become 
a partner. 

In 1770 the " Golden Bottle" became No. 37, Fleet Street. 
In 1774 the List shows that Henry Hoare, junr. was admitted 
as junior partner, the firm then consisting of Henry, Richard, 
Richard and Henry Hoare. In 1778 one Richard Hoare 
retired, and another Henry Hoare became partner. 
- In 1788 the name of Charles Hoare first appears in the 
firm, and Henry Meyrick Hoare was admitted about 1791. 

For the remainder I shall content myself with simply 
recording the various styles of the firm ; the minor changes 
became so numerous as may be seen upon referring to the 
lists of bankers at the end of this book. 

The firm continued to be known as Henry Hoare and Co., 
and Sir Henry Hoare and Co. until 1842, when the style 
changed to Charles Hoare and Co., which style they have 
kept up to the present day. The firm now consists of — 

Peter Richard Hoare. 

Charles Arthur Richard Hoare. 

Charles Hoare. 

Algernon Augustine De Lille Strickland. 

Henry Gerard Hoare. 

Hoare, Bamett and Co., 1808—26. (See Barnett.) 
Hoare, Hill and Co., 1800 — 7. (See Barnett.) 
Hodsoll, William, Goldsmith, 1752. (See Stirling.) 
Hollingsworth and Co. 

This firm was established by Mr. William Pepys about 
1729, in Lombard Street, as I gather firom information 
gleaned fi*om old notes bearing his name. In 1731 the 
style of the firm was William Pepys and Co., which continued 
for about five years. During that interval Charles Asgill and 
John Nightingale both signed the notes on behalf of Pepys 
and Co. as clerks, and it is singular that they both left this firm 

6 



82 A HANDBOOK OF 

to become partners in the banking-house of Glegg and Vere 
Nightingale probably remained with this firm imtil their end. 
(See Glegg.) 

In 1736 the style of the firm altered, becoming Pepys and 
Hollingsworth, and in 1748 Hollingsworth and Co., which 
continued until 1750, after which date nothing can be traced 
of them. 

The business was probably transferred to Asgill, Night- 
ingale and Co. (?) 

Honejrwood and Puller, 1746. (See Fuller.) 
Hopkinson and Sons. 

About the year 1796 Lieut-Colonel George Caesar Hop- 
kinson, late of the 15 th Light Dragoons, set up business in 
Craig's Court, near Charing Cross, as an Army Agent. 

It will be found, on reference to the Directory, that in 1 810 
Colonel Hopkinson had moved fi*om Craig's Court to 5, St 
Albans Street, and had taken two partners — his firm then 
being G. C. Hopkinson, Charles Hopkinson, and Edmund 
Hopkinson. The fact of their names appearing in the 
Directory in the list of bankers is sufficient to prove that they 
were established about that date, but Mr. G. Hopkinson is 
of opinion that they were established as army agents and 
bankers only about 1820. Ini8i7 they moved to 34, Pall 
Mall, which they vacated in 181 9, when they went to Regent 
Street. From 1826 to 1830 the firm was composed of Charles 
E. Hopkinson, Charles Hopkinson, jun., and George Henry 
Hopkinson. 

In 1831 it became Charles Hopkinson, Barton and Co. ; 
in 1846, Charles Hopkinson and C. S. Knyvett, assumed the 
style of Hopkinson and Co. Since 1870 the firm has been 
known as Charles Hopkinson and Sons, consisting of the fol- 
lowing partners : 

Charles Hopkinson. 
George Henry Hopkinson. 
Amefius Arthur Hopkinson. 

Horne and Temple 

Were bankers in the Strand, opposite to the New Exchange 
in 1735. In 1736 to 1738 the firm was styled Temple and 
Hawn (sic) ; and, in the " Compleate Guide to London," 
published in 1740, the firm was the same, with the exception 



LONDON BANKERS, 83 

of Mr, Home's name being spelt *'Haom." The first 
spelling should be taken as correct, being the mode in which 
they wrote their name themselves as endorsements. 

Horneby, Joseph, 

A goldsmith who, by the closing of the Exchequer on the 
2nd January, 1672, lost ;^22,548 5s. 6d., for which sum six per 
cent, was awarded as interest, amounting to ^^1,3 5 2 17s. lod. 
per annum. 

But, as Joseph and Nath. Homboy (spelt thus) were keep- 
ing running cashes at the Star in Lumbard Street in 1677, it is 
evident that the loss sustained by the shutting-up of the 
exchequer did not ruin him. 

Hyltoft, John, a goldsmith of Chepe, 1369. 

Imperial Bank (Limited), 

6, Lothbury, was established in 1862. The paid-up capital 
is ;iS^675,ooo. They have two West End branches, and a 
reserve fund of ;£" 90,000. 

Ironside and Belchier 

Were bankers, address unknown. All that can be ascer- 
tained is that they flourished between 1739 — 56. 

In 1 73 1 Messrs. Knight and Bourne had a clerk of the 
name of W. Belchier, and, as it is an uncommon name, it is 
probable that he joined in partnership with Ironside, 

Jackson (Nathaniel) and Colebrook 

Were goldsmiths; but very little can be ascertained concern- 
ing them. The only dates met with are 1706 — 8. They might 
have been the origin of the banking business of Jas. Cole- 
brooke and Co., but it cannot be clearly proved. 

Jones, Loyd and Co. 

The firm of Jones, Loyd and Co. appears to have originated 
in that of Joseph Jones and Co., who were established at 43, 
Lothbury, in or about the year 1788. In 1794 the firm 
became Daniel Jones, Barker, Loyd and Co.; and in 1799 
Jones, Loyd and Co. 

The following account, extracted from Mr. F. Martin's 
book entitled " Stories of Banks and Bankers," will explain 
how the Loyd interest was introduced into the firm, although 
I cannot quite agree with him that Mr. Lewis Loyd was the 
the actual founder of the bank, as the list of bankers for the 
year 1788 distinctly shows that the house at 43, Lothbury,

" Mr. Lewis Loyd, the founder of the house, father of the 
present Lord Overstone, began his career as a Welsh dissent- 
ing minister in a small chapel at Manchester, the congrega- 
tion of whi.cii included a Mr. Jones, a sort of half banker, 
half manufacturer. In addition to Mr. Jones, there was a 
young Miss Jones who attended the sermons of the Rev. 
Mr. Loyd, and, as often happens, the maiden found the 
orations so eloquent that she fell in love with the preacher. 
The affection was responded to by the minister, and tlie 
couple, fearing the purse-proud merchant would never consent 
to the mesalliance^ were privately married. 

" Of course, when the affair became known to Mr. Jones, as 
it could not fail to do, he was exceedingly angry ; but, seeing 
that things went on pretty comfortably with his daughter, he 
became reconciled in the end to his reverend son-in-law. 
However, though fond of attending sermons, he did not 
think preaching a good business, and therefore proposed that 
Mr. Loyd should give up the Welsh dissenting chapel and 
enter his counting-house as a partner, under the firm of Jones, 
Loyd and Co. Mr. Loyd consented, and, to extend the 
business, it was subsequently agreed that he should go to 
London, and establish a bank under the name of the Man- 
chester firm. 

This was done, it is said, in consequence of Mr. Jones' 
London agents, who were up to that time Messrs. Vere, 
Lucadon and Co., the ancestors of the present firm of Fuller, 
Banbury and Co., making repeated . complaints about the 
trouble of keeping the account. Had they not done so, the 
London house of Jones, Loyd and Co., would probably have 
never been established, and Messrs. Fuller and Co. would 
have had the satisfaction of being one of the largest private 
bankers in London. 

Jones, Loyd and Co., of Manchester, drew bills upon 
Jones, Loyd and Co., of London; or, as was facetiously 
observed, " pig upon bacon." 

Mr. Lawson says : " We believe this phrase arose out of 
the following incident : Mr. Loyd having one day called upon 
a customer whose acceptances the banker held, and the same 
having been drawn upon the house in London by a firm 



LONDON BANKERS. %$ 

abroad, asked the customer whether the bills so drawn upon 
and accepted by him were based upon bond fide transactions. 
'Before I answer that question/ said the gentleman, 'you 
must permit me, Mr. Loyd, to put a question to you ;' at the 
same time, opening a drawer, he produced several bills drawn 
by Jones, Loyd and Co., of Manchester, on Jones, Loyd 
and Co., of London. * Pray, sir, are these bills, which I call 
" pig upon bacon," all based upon bond fide transactions ?' 
This was so unexpected a retort that Mr. Loyd retired with- 
out uttering another word." 

After a long and honourable career, Mr. Lewis Loyd 
retired from the bank, and was succeeded as head of the firm 
by his son, Mr. Samuel Jones Loyd, who was subsequently 
created Lord Overstone. 

The following capital story is told of Jones Loyd's sagacity. 
It appeared that for some reason or another Baron Roths- 
child had a spite against Mr. Loyd, so he determined upon 
trying to ruin his firm. One afternoon, after 3 o'clock, the 
Baron paid in to his account with Jones, Loyd and Co. the 
large sum of ;£^5 00,000 made up of bank notes, cheques 
upon bankers, and coin. Upon this circumstance coming 
to the ears of Mr. Loyd, which of course it very shortly did, 
he, suspecting that the Baron intended mischief, instructed 
the cashier not to clear the charge paid in, but to put it away 
in a bag, and lock it up in the strong room just as it was. 

The next morning, about ten o'clock. Baron Rothschild's 
clerk presented a draft upon Jones, Loyd and Co. for 
^500,000, for which he demanded to be paid in Bank 
notes. The cashier went at once to Mr. Loyd to receive 
instructions. Mr. Loyd retaliated upon Rothschild by say- 
ing, " The eflfects are not cleared," and pushing the bag across 
the counter, with its contents in the same condition as they 
were left the night before, he said, " There 1 Take your 
rubbish back, and tell Baron Rothschild that I never wish to 
see it again." 

Thus, in all probability, a grave calamity was averted. 

In 1864, much to the surprise of the world at large, Messrs. 
Jones, Loyd and Co. disposed of their business to the Lon- 
don and Westminster Bank. 

In a work entitled " The Bank of England" (by the author 
of the " People's Blue Book," Longmans) it is stated that 
^' some millions of deposits have been added to the London 



86 A HANDBOOK OF 

and Westminster Bank by amalgamation with the house of 
Jones, Loyd and Co., the largest private banking-house in 
the City of London, and the most inveterate of all the 
enemies of the joint-stock banking principle." 

In 1840 Mr. Samuel Jones Loyd, in his evidence before 
the Parliamentary Committee on the Bank Charter Act, con- 
demned the joint-stock system as quite inapplicable to bank- 
ing. He said on that occasion : — " I think joint-stock banks 
are deficient in everything requisite for the conduct of bank- 
ing business except extended responsibility." 

Jones and Son, 1809—48. (See Stride.) 

Kay and Co., 1825 — 32. (See Price.) 

Kensingtons and Co. 

Wickenden, MofFatt, Kensington and Boler established 
themselves at 20, Lombard Street in 1775. James Wicken- 
den had up to tiiis time been a partner in the firm of Sir 
Charles Asgill, Nightingale and Co., in which house he had 
been a clerk, and finally partner. His name is not seen in 
the Directory for 1786, but the style of the firm was Moflfatt, 
Kensington and Boler. In 1788 a fresh partner of the name 
of Styan was admitted into the firm. In the List of Bankers 
of 1 791 the name of Boler disappears, the firm becoming 
Mofiatt, Kensingtons and Styan. In 1807 it was Kensingtons 
and Co., and in 181 2 the firm of Kensingtons, Styan and 
Adams appears in the List of Bankers for the last time. 

Kenton, M., 

The Little London Directory states, was a goldsmith 
keeping running cashes at the King's Arms, in Fleet 
Street, in 1677. 

The name of Francis Kenton appears in Blanchard and 
Child's ledgers up to 1687 as having a clearing account 
with them. 

Kirwood, Thomas, 

Was a goldsmith keeping running cashes circa 1670, as is- 
shown by Alderman Backwell's ledgers. In 1706 there was a 
firm styled Woolfrey and Kirwood, but there is no evidence 
to prove it to have been the same business. 



LONDON BANKERS, 87 

SMoch, G. F. and Sons, 

Started as bankers about 1807, at 5, Dyer's Court, Alder- 
manbury ; and about 181 1 they moved to No. 1, New Broad 
Street, where they continued to transact business until 1844. 

Knight, Batson and Co., 1763. (See Remington.) 
Knight, Joseph, 

A goldsmith, flourished (as far as my data can prove) 
between the years 1702 and 171 1. An old draft addressed to 
Sir Francis Child, at the Marygold by Temple Bar, drawn 
by Lady Carington, is thus worded : 

" I pray you pay to Mr. Knight, goldsmith, or order, the 
sum of fifty pounds." 

" It is duly endorsed,—" Jos. Knight." 

Knight and Bourne 

Were bankers in Change Alley, Lombard Street, and in all 
probability were the descendants of Joseph Knight, the 
goldsmith. The first record of this firm being in existence 
is upon old cash notes extending from 1 731 to 1735. I^^ 
1732 and 1733, W. Shuttleworth witnesses signatures in the 
capacity of clerk. In 1737 the name of Bourne is withdrawn 
from the firm, and that of Shuttleworth substituted ; thus in 
that year the style became Knight and Shuttleworth. Nothing 
can be traced of them after 1740. 

Knight and Jackson, 1729—50. (See Remington.) 

Lacy and Son, 

Of 60, West Smithfield. JjThis business was established 
about 1837 by Messrs. Pocklington and Lacy. In 1850 Mr. 
Benjamin Lacy admitted his son into the partnership, which 
firm continued until 1853, when the style became changed 
to Lacy and Son. 

Ladbroke and Co. 

This firm was of considerable antiquity, notwithstanding it 
does not appear in the list of bankers in the Directory before 
the year 1771; in which year its style was Sir Robert Lad- 
broke, Son, Rawlinson and Porker, doing business at 10, 
Lombard Street It is evident that they were established as 
early as 1736, probably as goldsmiths, as by an endorsement 



88 A HANDBOOK OF 

to one of Messrs. Child and Co.'s drafts the signature of 
" Robert Ladbroke and Co." may be seen duly witnessed by 
their clerk. 

Sir Robert Ladbroke was Lord Mayor, and Alderman of 
Bridge Without, a member of Parliament for the City of 
London, and a Colonel of the City Militia. In an old 
almanack he was described as " Father of the City." In 
1774 his son was head of the bank, and they had moved 
from Lombard Street to Bank Buildings. Messrs. Ladbroke 
and Co. gave up their business in 1842, when it was taken 
over by Messrs. Glyn and Co. 

Land Bank. 

Erected by Act of Parliament in 1696 to advance money 
only on title deeds of unencumbered freehold estates. 

The bank, projected by Dr. Chamberlain, was patronised 
by the Earl of Sunderland, through whose interest, and that 
of Foley, Harley, and the Tories, a Bill was passed through 
Parliament It was resolved that a fund, redeemable by 
Parliament, should be settled in a National Land Bank ; that 
the sum of ^^2,564,000 should be raised by subscription, for 
which seven per cent, should be paid ; and that the bank 
should not lend money but on landed securities, &c. 

Books were opened at Exeter Change on the 5 th June, 
1696, but they failed to get a sufficient amount subscribed. 
;^5ooo was subscribed in the King's name. 

It is said that its existence was marked chiefly by a paper 
war with the Bank of England, in which it was held that the 
latter got the worst One fly-sheet of the year 1696 pro- 
claims " the trial and condemnation of the Land Bank at 
Exeter Change for murdering the Bank of England at Grocer's 
Hall," while another gives an epitaph : — " Here lies the body 
of the Bank of England, who was bom in the year 1694, and 
died May 5, 1696, in the third year of its age." 

The failure of this Land Bank and other causes brought 
about the stoppage of the Bank of England, when their 
notes fell to such a heavy discount

This old-established banking-house was started by Brassey 



LONDON BANKERS. 89 

and Caswall about the year 1700. The first record that can 
be discovered about them is their names upon old cash-notes 
of Messrs. Child — the earliest dates being in 1 707, when 
their endorsement was witnessed by J. Browne. The same 
old notes show that in 17 16 the firm consisted of John and 
Nathaniel Brassey ; between 1730 and 1740 it was Nathaniel 
Brassey and Lee. The first time this firm appears in the 
London Directory is in 1738, and then they were located in 

Lombard Street In 1754 ^^® ^^7^^ ^^ ^^^ ^"^ ^^^ Brassey, 
Lee and Son. In a list of bankers, included in an Almanack 
called the "Daily Journal," published in 17^8, the firm of 
Brassey, Lee, R. and W. Ayton, were at the Acorn, in 
Lombard Street. In 1 7 7 1 , after the numbering of the houses 
took place, it will be seen that the " Acorn" became No. 7 1 , 
Lombard Street In 1774 the style of the firm became 
Ayton and Company; and in 1776, Lee, Ayton, Brassey 
and Eaton were carrying on the business. In 1785 the 
designation again became Ayton, Brassey and Co., con- 
sisting of Ayton, Brassey, Lees and Satterthwaite. The 
next change is recorded in the Directory of 1799, when the 
head of the firm became George Lee, supported by R. Lee, 
Miles and Satterthwaite. In 1 805 it was Lees, Satterthwaite 
and Brassey; in 18 10 they appear to have taken a partner 
of the" name of Farr; and from 1820 to 1835 ^^® style of 
this firm was Lees, Brassey, Farr and Lee. In the last year 
this old-establishedlbank, which had originated in the business 
of a goldsmith and banker upwards of 135 years before, ceased 
to exist.

London and Westminster Bank 

Was established in 1834. Up to this date it had always been 
considered that no joint-stock bank could be established 
within a radius of sixty-five miles of London. 

Mr. James William Gilbart, who commenced his banking 
career as a clerk to a city banker in 1813, subsequently went 
to Ireland as manager of a joint-stock bank, and then 
returned to London. Having discovered that the old no- 
tions as to the formation of a joint-stock bank were erroneous, 
he set to work to form a model one, and the result was the 
London and Westminster Bank. 

No scheme ever met with more formidable opposition, 
not only from the Private Bankers, but especially firom the 
Bank of England, who considered that the " upstart *' was 
infiinging their monopoly. 

That idea was speedily dissipated upon the question being 
put to the Solicitor-General, who gave it as his opinion that 
any number of joint-stock banks might be established, or 
might have been, since the foundation of the Bank of Eng-

land, provided they did not issue notes, within sixty-five 
miles of the Metropolis. 

With a paid-up capital of ^^5 0,000 the London and 
Westminster Bank commenced business at 2i^^ Throgmorton 
Street, on the loth March, 1834. Previously to so doing, they 
had applied to the Bank of England for permission to have 
a drawing account, but their application was refused. They 
also asked the Committee of Bankers to be allowed a seat in 
the clearing-house, but that application was likewise refused ; 
and, after repeated applications being made, they did not 
gain admittance until June, 1854. 

After a few more oppositions on the part of the Bank of 
England, the London and Westminster Bank succeeded in 
holding its position. 

The following banking businesses have been absorbed by 
it : — ^Young and Son, of Southwark, who gave up on account 
of the death of the latter ; Strahan, Paul and Bates ; Jones,. 
Loyd and Co. ; Commercial Bank of London ; Unity Joint- 
Stock Bank ; and London and Middlesex Bank. 

In June, 1874, they had a paid-up capital of ;^ 2,000,000, 
with a reserve fund of ;^i,o46,iio ; and in June, 1875, ^^ 
paid-up capital was the same, and the Reserve Fund amounted 
to ;^667,ooo.

in the Metropolis.

teris. In 1799 another change occurred, and the style of 
the firm became Mainwaring, Son, Chatteris and Co. They 
then moved to 80, Cornhill, and became extinct in 181 5.

Of 6, Bemers Street, Oxford Street, an old-established 
bank, failed through the forgeries of their partner, Henry 
Fauntleroy, which de^cations were discovered in the year 
1824. 

The name of Henry Fauntleroy, the fether, who had 
originally been a clerk to a city banker, first appeared as a 
partner in the firm in 1797. 

The style of the bank in 1796, in which year it first appears 
in the London Directory, was De Vismes, Cuthbert, Marsh, 
Creed and Co. Henry Fauntleroy, sen., died in 1807, when 
he was succeeded in the partnership by his son, Henry, the 
forger. In 18 14 he was appointed one of three trustees to 
the estate of a family consisting of eight children. He 
shortly forged the signatures of his co-trustees to a power of 
attorney for the sale of stock standing in their names in the 
Consols. 

That being successful, he tried others, until at last he had 
defi*auded the Bank of England of the sum of ^^3 60, 000; 
some portion of which, it is believed, they have recovered. 

The discovery was accidentally made by one of the trustees, 
in investigating the books at the Bank of England, that 
certain sums in Consols, etc., had been sold out; whereupon he 
lost no time in communicating with the police, and Faunt- 
leroy was arrested in the bank parlour in Bemers Street 

He had kept accurate accounts of all the forgeries he had 
committed. 

On the 30th October, 1824, he was charged at the Old 
Bailey with forgery, of which offence he was found guilty; and 
on the 30th November following he was executed. 

Amongst his papers the following statement was discovered, 
by itself sufficient to prove his guilt : — 

" In order to keep up the credit of our house, I have 
forged powers of attorney for the above sums and parties, 
and sold out to the amount here stated, and without the 
knowledge of my partners. I kept up the payments of the 
dividends, but made no entries of such payments in our 
books. The Bank first began to refuse to discount our 
acceptances, and to destroy the credit of our house. The 
Bank shall smart for it"

68, Lombard Street This is a very old business. The 
firm indeed claims to be the oldest in the City of London. 
It is supposed to have been established by Sir Thomas 
Gresham, that eminent goldsmith and royal merchant (as 
he was then termed) of Queen Elizabeth's time, who 
founded the Royal Exchange and Gresham College, and 
vastly improved the condition of trade. For further parti- 
culars concerning him, see under " Gresham" in this work. 

He carried on his trade in Lombard Street at the sign of 
the Grasshopper; by which this house was widely known 
until the year 1770, when all the houses were numbered, and 
the Grasshopper became No. 68, Lombard Street. 

It is a matter of great regret that this curious old sign, 
which was made of brass, has been lost, stolen, or destroyed. 

Mr. John Biddulph Martin, in his most interesting and 
valuable paper entitled " The Grasshopper," apropos of the 
sign, says : — 

" The disappearance of the sign is not, however, attri- 
butable to any want of reverence on the part of its owners, 
but to the dishonesty of the workmen who rebuilt the house 
in 1794 — 5. It is said that it was carefully put away during 
the rebuil(fing, but was not forthcoming at the completion of 
the works.*' 

This is not a singular occurrence, as the very same thing 
happened to the sign of the Crown, Messrs. Willis', when 
that house was rebuilt ; and to the Golden Anchor, the sign 
of Snows, afterwards known as Strahans, which sign was 
taken down and destroyed as recently as this year. 

Mr. Martin very properly repudiates the absurdity of an 
old legend which was supposed to have been the origin of Sir 
Thomas Gresham's sign and crest, />., that a passer by was 
attracted by the chirp of a grasshopper, turned aside from 
his path through a meadow, and found Gresham, a castaway 
infant. It is very well known that Gresham's father filled 
, the ofiice of Cambium Regis, or Royal office of Exchange, to 
Henry the Eighth, by which monarch and by Cardinal 
Wolsey he was much esteemed. When the latter was 
deprived of the Great Seal, what appeared to pain him most. 




•94 A HANDBOOK OF 

after the displeasure of the king, was that he did not know 
how he would be able to repay Gresham the sum of two 
hundred pounds he had borrowed from him. 

The next mention of the Grasshopper occurs in the Little 
London Directory of 1677, which shows that Char. Buncombe 
and Richard Kent were at the Grasshopper in Lumbard 
Street. 

Between Gresham's time and that date nothing can be told 
of the house. It might, for all we know, have been occupied 
by one of those goldsmiths who were robbed of their money 
by the shameful shutting up of the Exchequer. 

Between the years 1669 — 1690, the names of this firm 
occur in the ledgers of Blanchard and Child, and Alderman 
Backwell, with whom Buncombe and Kent kept an account 
for " clearing," as all other goldsmiths did with each other. 

I have met with an interesting draft drawn on Mr. Bun- 
combe, March 3, 1669, and other drafts relating to him up 
to the year 1 70 1. One of the latter drafts bears his autograph. 
At this date he was Sir Charles Buncombe. He had evidently 
been a very successful banker, as may be deduced from the 
following entry in Evel3ni's Biary, under date 11 June, 1696, 
where he writes : " To this add the fraud of the bankers and 
goldsmiths, who, having gotten immense riches by extortion, 
keep up their treasure in expectation of enhancing its value. 
Buncombe, not long since a mean goldsmith, having made a 
purchase of the late Buke of Buckingham's Estate at near 
;^9o,ooo, and reputed to have as near as much in cash. 
Banks and Lotteries every day set up." 

** And Helmsley, once proud Buckingham's delight, 
Slides to a Scrivener or City-Knight." — Pope. 

The estate above referred to was Helmsley in Yorkshire, 
subsequently Buncombe Park, the seat of the Earl of Fever- 
sham, a descendant of Sir Charles Buncombe, Lord Mayor 
of London in 1709. 

Bishop Burnet, in the "History of His Own Time," speaking 
of the shameful shutting-up of the Exchequer by Charles the 
Second, states that the Earl of Shaftesbury, knowing of it, 
had profited by his knowledge, as he informed the Bishop 
that he had removed all his money out of his banker's hands, 
and had warned his friends to do the like. Charles Bun- 
combe was Lord Shaftesbury's banker, and he very obligingly 



LONDON BANKERS, 95 

informed him of the secret that the Exchequer would be 
closed. Buncombe is said to have had a large sum of his 
own, and another belonging to the Marquis of Winchester, in 
the Exchequer, from which he withdrew it before the sus- 
pension of payments took place. 

The Marquis of Winchester, afterwards Duke of Bolton, 
strenuously supported Sir Charles Buncombe's cause when 
he was impeached in the reign of William the Third, his 
influence rescuing him by one vote. This was a generous 
return for the service he had received at his hands, whereby 
he was saved from loss by the Exchequer. 

This is probably the reason why Blanchard and Child did 
not make a loss, as Bishop Burnet and the Duke of Bolton 
both banked with them. 

In one of Messrs. Child's old ledgers, a large sum of money 
was drawn out of his account by Sir Charles Duncombe at 
this date, 1696 ; probably it was to pay for the purchase of 
this estate. 

Mr. Martin, in the " Grasshopper," states that Duncombe 
had not yet attained the honour of knighthood, but was 
Secretary to the Treasury. Two years later he fell into 
grievous trouble, being charged with making false endorse- 
ments on Exchequer Bills, and was committed to the Tower. 

He was expelled the House of Commons, of which he 
was a member, and, after much debate, a division of 138 to 
103 determined on the confiscation of his property. The 
House of Lords, however, released the prisoner, and it is 
uncertain what was the final issue of the charge. 

Mr. Martin goes on to say that it may be presumed that, 
prior to this date, Duncombe had become a partner with Mr. 
Richard Smythe, who, according to a paper written by Mr. 
Eichard Stone, was a banker of great eminence in the reign of 
William and Mary, and lived at the house in Lombard Street. 
He is said to have taken an active part in the restoration of 
the coinage in 1695 — 6. 

A very fine portrait of Mr. Richard Smythe hangs in the 
bank parlour in Lombard Street, which it has been my good 
fortune to see. It is said to have been painted by J. Hargrave, 
1760 (See ''Grasshopper"). 

This Mr. Smythe must have been the principal of the bank 
between the time that Mr. Duncombe left it (which I am 
induced to think was prior to 1696) and the year 1701, at 



96 A HANDBOOK OF 

which latter date I have seen a draft endorsed by " George 
Stone/' who might certainly have been only a clerk to Mr. 
Smythe, and probably was the father of Andrew Stone, who, 
Mr. Martin says, was his clerk, and afterwards admitted into 
the firm. Mr. Thomas Martin likewise was his clerk. I have 
his autograph, dated August, 1707, written in a bold hand, 
and several others of this firm up to the year 1770. The 
style of the firm between about 1701 and 171 1 appears to 
have been Stone and Martin. 

In describing the changes that have taken place in the 
firm from time to time, I shall give all the particulars verbatim 
from the paper on the " Grasshopper*' by Mr. J. B. Martin, 
(who has kindly given me permission so to do), which is 
far more accurate and precise, by reason of its materials 
being extracted fi:om the books of the firm, than any state- 
ment derived firom the London Directories and other sources 
. could possibly be. 

Mr. Thomas Martin carried on the business alone until 
1 7 14, when he took into partnership his brother James, who 
represented the borough of Cambridge in Parliament during 
several years. He retired from business some time before 

1731- 
According to Mr. Stone's memorandum, it was after the 

retirement of his brother from business that James Martin 

took two partners, Marke and James Leaver; and, the 

former also retiring, Mr. Richard Stone, son of Andrew Stone, 

filled his place, a fourth partner, Richard Surman, joining 

them. These changes took place between the years 17 14 and 

1 73 1, for at that date the signatures of the partners are 

appended to the yearly balance-sheet in the following order : 

James Martin, Richard Surman, James Leaver, Richard Stone ; 

and their signatures are witnessed by John, the brother of 

James Martin. 

At the end of the year 1732, James Leaver went out of the 

business, and James Martin, Richard Surman, and Richard 

Stone carried it on until 1744; when, on the death of 

James Martin his brother John took his place. In 1748 

the names of the partners were John Martin, Joseph Martin, 

(his son), R. Surman and Ebenezer Blackwell. The latter 

had been a clerk, having witnessed the signatures to the 

annual balance-sheet at Christmas, 1732. (His signature

likewise appears upon an old cash-note of Messrs. Child in 

1731) 
No further change took place until 1760, when John Martin 

resigned the head-partnership in favour of his son, Joseph, 
, whose younger brother, James, joined the firm at the same 
time, together with Richard Stone, junior. In 1762 Richard 
Stone, senior, died ; but at Midsummer in the following year 
John Porker, who, like Blackwell, had previously been a 
clerk, was promoted to partnership. His name appears as 
witness in 1760; but I have seen it on old cash-notes as 
early as 1754. 

The firm continued unchanged until 1770, when (Feb. 10) 
Porker retired, and John Foote was taken into partnership. 
He married Jos. Martin's daughter, but his family is now 
extinct. In 1774 Jos. Martin retired, and apparently sur- 
vived only two years longer, dying in 1776. He repre- 
sented the borough of Gatton in Parliament, and subsequently 
that of Tewkesbury. He was also Sheriff of London, in 1 7 70, 
and the only member of the family who attained any civic 
distinction. He had been in the banking-house thirty-one 
years. 

The next change in the firm was caused by the retirement 
of E. Blackwell, after a partnership of at least thirty-two 
years, and association with it for not less than forty-eight 
years. Soon after his death, in 1783, James Porter, who 
had witnessed the signatures for the previous eighteen years, 
was admitted to partnership ; and the four members, James 
Martin, Richard Stone, John Foote and James Porter carried 
on the business for the next ten years, at the end of which 
period George, son of Richard Stone, was admitted, and 
Porter retired. 

In 1794 the Grasshopper was rebuilt In the year 1795 
John, son of James Martin, became second partner, and at 
the end of the following year John Foote retired, but was 
succeeded after the interval of a year by his son George. 
Richard Stone died in 1801 — 2, and shortly afterwards, 1804, 
the firm was reduced to three members (James Martin, John 
Martin, and George Stone) by the accidental drowning in the 
Thames of George Foote. In 1806 James, third and youngest 
brother of John Martin, was made a partner; and James 
Martin, his father, retiring in 1808, the business was carried 
on by John Martin, George Stone, and James Martin. The

above James Martin, sen., died in 1810. From 1796 to 1807 
he represented Tewkesbury in Parliament. 

No further change took place imtil 1823, when James 
Martin retired, and was succeeded in 1824 by Henry, brother 
of George Stone. John, eldest son of John Martin, was 
made a partner in 1826, as also in 1830 was his third brother 
James, with George Stone, junr., son of George Stone. 
Richard Martin, second brother of John, was also made a 
partner in 1829, but he died a few months subsequently, and 
his name does not appear in the books. 

John Martin, sen., died in 1832, aged fifty-seven years, 
having been thirty-five years in business, and George Stone 
then became head-partner. Robert, fourth son of John 
Martin, sen., became a partner in r836, and the six members 
carried on the business together until r 844, when George Stone, 
sen., died, having been upwards of fifty years in business, as did 
his brother in the following year. The retirement of George 
Stone in 1852 left the business entirely in the hands of the 
three brothers, John, James and Robert Martin, the firm 
becoming once more Martin and Co. after a lapse of 133 
years ; and with the exception of the admission in 1861 of 
Richard Biddulph, and in 1864 of John Biddulph, sons of 
Robert Martin, and of the retirement of the latter at 
Christmas, 1872, the firm has since remained without change. 
The partners now are — 

John Martin. 
James Martin. 
Richard Biddulph Martin. 
John Biddulph Martin. 

Itlartin, Sir Richard, Knt., 

Was a goldsmith in the reign of Elizabeth. He was Lord 
Mayor in 1589, and kept his mayoralty in one of the houses 
in Goldsmiths* Row, Cheapside, which is now called Foster 
Lane. Howes (Ed. 163 1, p. 1045), writing about this Row, 
says: 

" At this time and for divers years past, the Goldsmith's 
Roe in Cheapside was and is much abated of her wonted store 
of goldsmiths, which was the beauty of that famous streete, for 
the young goldsmiths, for cheapnesse of dwelling, take their 
houses in Fleet Street, Holbom, and in the Strand, and in 
other streets and suburbs, and in the place goldsmiths' shops

were turned to milliners, bookesellers, linendrapers and 
others." 

Sir Richard Martin's name appears in a roll of presents 
that were given to Queen Elizabeth on New Year's Day, 

1593. 

Maserer, Simon le, goldsmith, 1369. 

Mason, Currie and Co., 1774—81. (See Curries.) 

Masterman and Co. 

The earliest record that can be found of this banking- 
house appears in the London Directory of 1779, in which 
year Mildred and Walker were at 2, White Hart Court, 
Lombard Street They were probably established some 
years before, but the names of bankers were not always 
inserted in the list in the Directory. In the following year 
Mr. Masterman entered the partnership, and the style of the 
firm became Mildred, Masterman and Walker. Ten years 
later the firm was Masterman, Peters, Walker and Mildred. 
In 1814 the name of Walker disappeared from the list, and 
another of the name of Masterman appears as the junior 
partner. In 1823 they moved to 35, Nicholas Lane ; and in 
1863 the firm became Masterman, Peters, Mildred, Birkbeck 
and Co. 

This old-established banking business was amalgamated 
with the Agra and United Service Bank in 1865, under the 
style of the Agra and Masterman's Bank, and kept on the 
premises in Nicholas Lane. In the following year, during 
the panic of May, 1866, this institution stopped payment. 

Uneasiness in the money-market began to be felt in the 
first week of October, 1865, when the Bank of England 
suddenly raised the rate of discount from four-and-a-half to 
seven per cent. By the 9th October first-class paper could 
hardly be discounted even at ten per cent. In December, 
1865, a slight drain of gold for export occurred, and early in 
1866 the Bank of England raised its minimum rate of interest 
to eight per cent. 

Distrust then became general ; a panic occurred in which 
Overend, Gumey and Co. suspended payment ; and in May 
this stoppage was followed by several joint-stock banks, 
including the English Joint-Stock, formerly the private bank

described. 

Masters and Co., 1788. (See Dixon.) 

Maude and Hallett, 1822. (See Hallett.) 

Mead and Co. 

The whole of the information concerning the banking 
business of John Mead and Co. is furnished by cheques drawn 
upon Child and Co. 

The first record is upon a draft, dated 1704, of Silvanus 
Bevan's, which is endorsed over to Robert Ffowles and John 
Mead, and witnessed by John Strother for them. 

The fact of the name of Fowles appearing here leads one 
to suppose that he was a descendant of Sir Thomas Fowles 
of the Black Lion, who died in 1691 ; but information con- 
cerning him is wanting between that date and 1704, when he 
was in partnership with John Mead. 

In the year following, the name of John Mead alone 
appears. In 1708 his customers' signatures are witnessed 
by " Robert Brighthall, for Mr. John Mead." 

After 1 7 10 John Mead, junior, endorsed the drafts; and 
about 17 15 Robert Brightall was taken into partnership with 
his master, as I find on a cheque drawn by James Tooker, 
in October, 17 15, in favour of the Lady Lansdowne, and 
endorsed by her, the signature was witnessed, and contents 
of the cheque received by "James Travers, for my ma". 
Messrs. Mead and Brighthall." 

In 1722 W. Mead signed for Mead and Co. After that 
date nothing further concerning them can be traced. 

To Messrs. Mead and Co. must be ascribed the credit of 
being the first bankers on record who gave pass-books to their 
customers; as in 17 15, Lady Carteret, writing to Mr. Child, 
says : — " I should be glad of a Book as I used to have at 
Mr. Mead's w'^ an account of all that you have rec^ upon this 
article." 

Merle, Son and Co., 

Of 2, Coxe's Court, Little Britton, was founded about 1792 
by Messrs. Cox, Merle and Co. In 18 18 the name of Cox 
disappeared, and the firm became William Merle, Son and 
Co. ; which is not found in the list of bankers after 1821. 



LOND ON ; BANKERS, loi 

Metropolitan Bank (Limited), 

75, Cornhill, was established in 1867. The paid-up capital 

Meynell, or Majmell, Francis, 

As it was sometimes spelt, was a great goldsmith in London. 
Lord Braybrooke, in a foot note in Pepys' Diary, gives the 
following particulars of him : — 

" Alderman Francis Meynell was a goldsmith and banker 
in London, and then one of the Sheriffs (1662). He was 
the third son of Godfrey Meynell, of Willington, in Derby- 
shire, and died in i^ddd ; his father was buried at Langley, in 
that county, where their descendants still possess property. 
Hugo Charles Ingram Meynell, of Hoare Cross, Staffordshire, 
and Temple Newsome, near Leeds, was the late represent- 
ative of the family." 

As Me3niell has been mentioned by Pepys in his Diary, 
I give the following extracts as being of considerable 
interest : — 

** 18 Sept. 1662; At noon Sir G. Carteret, Mr. Coventry 
and I by invitation to dinner to Sheriff Meynell's, the great 
money-man ; he, and Alderman Backewell, and much noble 
and brave company, with the privilege of their rare discourse, 
which is great content to me above all other things in the 
world." 

Again, on the 19th January, 1662 — 3 : — " Singled out Mr. 

oventry into the matted gallery, and there I told him the 
complaints I meet every day about our Treasurer's or his 
people's paying no money but at the goldsmith's shops, 
where they are forced to pay fifteen, or twenty sometimes, 
per cent, for their money, which is a most horrid shame, 
and that which must not be suffered. Nor is it likely that 
the Treasurer, at least, his people will suffer Maynell the 
goldsmith to go away with ^10,000 per annum, as he do 
now get, by making people pay after this manner for their 
money." 

Alderman Meynell died in October, 1666. 

The name of Isack Meynell, keeping a very considerable 
account, appears in Alderman Backwell's ledgers circa 1670; 
and, from the nature of the operations therein recorded, I am 
led to suppose he was a goldsmith.

Million Bank. 

The following account of the undertaking called "The 
Million Bank" I have abstracted from Lawson's " History of 
Banking" : — 

"About the latter end of the year 1693, there appeared a 
scheme for a bank, commonly called the " Million Bank." 
It took its rise from a number of London Bankers, who lent 
out money on pledges, agreeing to purchase tickets in King 
William's Million Lottery, and from thence they were called 
" The Company of the Million Bank/' 

This bank was finally established, and its affairs were con- 
ducted by a Board of Directors, consisting of twenty-four 
members, including a Governor and Deputy-Governor ; they 
subsequently purchased many reversions of the Fourteen 
per cent annuities, and permitted many proprietors of annuities 
to purchase their joint-stock, which amounted to ;£^5oo,ooo. 

They were a partnership by deed, enrolled in Chancery, 
with a joint-stock fund. They at first divided five per cent 
interest, which they subsequently reduced to four per cent ; 
and again raised it to five per cent, at which it continued till 
the dissolution of the bank." 

I have seen entries of transactions in their stock in the 
ledgers and among the old papers belonging to Messrs. Child 
and Co. The Million Bank existed until the end of the last 
century. 

Mine Adventurers of England. 

This was a bubble Company got up by Sir Humphrey 
Mackworth, Bart., who has been described as one of " the 
cleverest rogues of his time," and who had a considerable 
interest in the great South Sea Bubble. 

This Company of the "Mine Adventurers" started about 
1707. Professing to make banking their chief business, they 
issued all kinds of notes to a large amount, much to the con- 
sternation of the Bank of England. Nor was the alarm con- 
fined to the Bank. It affected even the Government, who 
took the matter up vigorously with a view to putting a stop to 
the issue of such an unlimited number of notes. It ended in 
the following enactment being passed ; 



LONDON BANKERS. 103 

" That during the continuance of the corporation of the 
Governor and Company of the Bank of England, it shall not 
be lawful for any body politic or corporate whatsoever to 
borrow, owe, or take up any sura or sums of money in their 
bills or notes payable at demand." 

Minors, Thomas, 1738. (See Boldero.) 
Moffatt and Co., 1786— 1806. (See Kensingtons.) 
Moorhouse and Co., 1777—86. , (See Willis.) 
norland and Co. 

This bank was started by Sir F. B. Morland in 18 19. He 
was formerly in partnership with Ransom, Morland, and Ham- 
mersley, at 57, Pall Mall, with whom he continued from 1786 
until 1 81 9. AH three partners separated, each founding a 
distinct bank in Pall Mall. Thus the firms of Morland and 
Co., and of Hammersley and Co. had their origin in Ransoms. 
In 1796 Mr. Hammersley left the firm, and its style became 
Morland, Ransom and Co. In 18 14 they removed to next 
door, /.^., No. 56, Pall Mall; and in 1819, when Sir F. B. 
Morland dissolved partnership with Mr. Ransom, Morland 
and Co. again moved to 57, Pall Mall, and the style of the firm 
became Morland, Auriol and Co. In 1823 they moved to No. 
50, Pall Mall. They were known by this style until 1831, 
when the firm became Duckett, Morland and Co. ; and in the 
following year, which was marked by a considerable money 
panic, they failed. 

norson and Co., Richard, 

All that can be ascertained about these bankers is that 
they were in existence in 1721 ; as proved by the old cash 
notes, which after 1736 are not seen bearing their endorse- 
ment. The first and only time their name appears in the 
list of bankers is likewise in 1736, when the record is simply, 
Richard Morson. 

Hurray, John, 

Was a banker at the Crown, in Fleet Street, in 1 763. Mr. 
Noble, in his " Memorials of Temple Bar," states that Mr. 
Murray, or John McMurray, a lieutenant in the Royal 
Navy, commenced bookselling in 1768, when for ;^4oo 



104 A HANDBOOK' OF 

he purchased the goodwill of William Sandby, who had been 
established as a bookseller for upwards of forty years at what 
is now No. 32, Fleet Street, then known as the Crown. Mr. 
Sandby retired to join the firm of Snow and Deilne, the 
bankers in the Strand. 

It is to be presumed that banking did not pay Mr. Murray, 
as his name does not appear in the list of bankers after the 
year 1768. 

In the biography of John Murray, the publisher, in " The 
History of Booksellers," by Henry Curwen (Chatto and 
Windus), the account given does not quite agree with this ; 
the date of his leaving the navy being set downi as later, viz., 
in the year 1768, the very year, in fact, in which his name 
ceases to be seen in the list of bankers in the London Direc- 
tory. No notice is taken of the fact of his having up till that 
time, from 1763 — 68, been a banker at the sign of the Crown. 

In Mr. Curwen's book is an interesting letter written by 
Mr. Murray to his friend Mr. Falconer at Dover, telling him 
of the offer he had received from Mr. Sandby, who had 
entered into company with Snow and Denne the bankers. 

John Murray died in 1793 ; and in 181 2 his son moved 
from Fleet Street to Albemarle Street.

1835. Its paid-up capital is ;^i, 500,000, and its reserve 
fund amounts to jC'^S^t^^^* 

National Provincial Bank of England, 

Bishopsgate Street. Established in 1833. Its paid-up 
capital amounts to ;£^i, 350,000. This bank has branches in 
the suburbs and in various parts of England. 

Its reserve fund amounts to ;^6oo,ooo. 

Neale, Fordyce and Co. 

The house of Samuel Roffey, Neale, James, and Fordyce 
was established as bankers at the sign of the Union, opposite 
the Post Office, in Lombard Street, about the year 1759. 

Messrs. Roffey and Neale were originally brewers ; and 
they took into partnership Mr. Alexander Fordyce, who, Mr. 
Martin states, was bred a hosier at J Aberdeen. He after- 
wards came to London and became an out-door clerk to 



LONDON BANKERS. 105 

Messrs. Boldero and Co. He was a man of handsome ap- 
pearance, and possessed of considerable energy, with a flow 
of natural eloquence and suavity of manner. He no sooner 
became a partner in the firm than he began to speculate in 
the Public Funds, hazarding large sums. 

In 1766, when he speculated largely in East India Stock 
for a rise, they went up even higher than he anticipated, 
leaving him in possession of nearly ;^i 00,000. He then 
purchased an estate, gave great entertainments, and married 
Lady Margaret Lindsay, daughter of the Earl of Balcarres. 
His extravagance knew no bounds ; and he continued his 
speculations, which after a time turned out badly. On one 
occasion of his speculating for a rise, the Stocks fell heavily, 
and he sustained a loss of about ;^i 00,000, when he availed 
himself of the private fortune of his partner, who had hitherto 
rejoiced in his associate's cleverness and tact. Luck con- 
tinuing against him, he had recourse to borrowing from every- 
one he could, until at last the Bank of England and other 
Bankers refused him further assistance. 

He is said, by Mr. Martin, to have visited a Quaker for 
the piupose of borrowing money ; but the worthy man was 
too shrewd to be taken in. He wittily parried the applica- 
tion with — " Friend Fordyce, I have known many people 
mined by two dice, but I will not be ruined by four dice." 
The Quaker was right, for shortly afterwards Fordyce ab- 
sconded, and the firm found themselves hopelessly bankrupt ; 
discovery being made that he had put his name -to bills 
in circulation to the amount of four millions sterling. 

The style of the firm between 1770 and June i8th 1772, 
the date upon which they failed, was James Neale, Fordyce 
and Down, carrying on business at 73, Threadneedle Street. 
One of their clerks, J. Yallowby, who witnessed signatures of 
the firm in 1767, was afterwards a junior partner in the firm 
of Mason, Currie and Co., of Cornhill. 

The following account, which is taken from Francis, of the 
memorable Monday, 22nd June, 1772, will serve to give the 
reader an idea of the prevailing agitation, which forcibly re- 
minds us of the occurrence of a few years ago : 

" It is beyond the power of words to describe the general 
consternation of the metropolis at this instant. No event 
for fifty years has been remembered to give so fatal a blow to 
trade and public credit. An universal bankruptcy was ex- 



io6 A HANDBOOK OF 

pected. The stoppage of almost every banker's house in 
London was looked for. The whole city was in an uproar. 
Many of the first families were in tears. This melancholy 
scene began with a rumour that one of the greatest bankers 
in London: had stopped ; which afterwards proved true. A 
report at the same time was propagated that an immediate 
stop of the greatest must take place. Happily this proved 
groundless ; the principal merchants assembled, and means 
were concerted to revive trade and preserve the national 
credit." 

As late as the 7th April, 1795, the following advertise- 
ment appeared in the London Gazette : — " The creditors of 
the Estate of Neale, James, Fordyce and Co (who ha,ve not 
already received) may receive a final dividend of one shilling 
in the pound any Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday morn- 
ing, firom 10 to 12 o'clock, at the Counting House of 
Messrs. Stonard and Ryland, comer of Savage Gardens, 
Tower Hill.'* 

Newman and Co., 1795. (See Mainwaring.) 
Newnham and Co., 1785. (See Everett.) 
Nicholls and Fowler, 1713—20 ; 

After which dajte the style of the firm became Ab. Fowler 
and Co., who appear to have flourished as bankers until 
1735 ; which is the last date on which anything can be found 
concerning them. 

Nicholson and Co., 18 13. (See Brown, Janson and Co.) 

Nightingale and Co. 

This old goldsmith and banking business originated in the 
firm of Glegg and Vere about the year 1730. In 1733 a 
Samuel Vere signed on behalf of " Glegg and Vere." 

They were established in Lombard Street, facing Lloyds' 
Coffee House, which subsequently became No. 70. In 1740 
the name of Glegg is not met with in the Directory ; and Mr. 
Joseph Vere took into partnership with him a Mr. Charles As- 
gill, who had been a clerk in the banking house of Wm. Pepys 
and Co. Thus in 1740 the style of the firm became Vere 
and Asgill. 

It will be found on reference to the list of bankers in the 
Royal Annual Kaleudar, that in 1765 J. Wickenden, who 



LONDON BANKERS. 107 

had witnessed signatures for this firm in 1742, had been 
taken into the partnership, and that the style of the firm then 
became Sir Charles Asgill, Nightingale and Wickenden. 

As to Mr. John Nightingale, I am disposed to believe that 
he likewise had been a clerk in Pepys' bank,* as his name 
appears upon the old notes. Sir Charles Asgill was Alder- 
man of Candlewick Ward. In 1775 John Wickenden left the 
old firm in which he had been clerk and partner to establish 
a new banking house at 20, Lombard Street, under the style 
of Wickenden, Moffat, Kensington and Boler. 

When Wickenden left, the firm became Asgill, Nightingale 
and Nightingale ; and in 1789 it assumed the style of John, 
William, and George Nightingale. 

In 1 79 1 the name of John Nightingale disappeared fi-om 
the firm, and the business was conducted by William and 
George Nightingale until 1796, when it became extinct, 
having probably suspended payment during the great panic. 

William Donaldson, who in T755 witnessed signatures for 
Sir Charles Asgill and Co., was doing the same office for 
Robert Child, Esq., and Co ; in which latter firm he became 
a partner in 1790. 

Olding and Co. 

This banking business was established in Comhill about 
the year 1766, by Messrs. Welch and Rogers. They must 
have had a sign, but that I have been unable to ascertain. 
In the year 1770 their house was numbered No. 80, Corn- 
hill; and in 17 81 the style was Welch, Rogers and Olding. 
In 1785 the firm removed to 3, Freeman's Court, Cornhill, 
it then being Welch, Rogers, Olding and Rogers. In 1799 it 
became Rogers, Olding and Rogers ; and in 181 1 they amal- 
gamated with Langston, Towgood, Cazalet and Co., who 
appear to have started in 1777 as Langston, Polhill, Tow- 
good and Amory, at 29, Clement's Lane. The style of the 
firm in 18 1 2 was Rogers, Towgood and Co., at that address. 
The head of the firm, Mr. Samuel Rogers, enjoyed the dis- 
tinguished reputation of being the Banker-poet. His earliest 
publication was entitled, " An Ode to Superstition and other 
Poems ;" and his subsequent writings gave him an eminent 
place in literature. In 1792 he produced the " Pleasures of 

* See Hollingsworth. 



io8 A HANDBOOK OB 

Memory," by which he is most widely known ; " The Voyage 
of Columbus," in 1812 ; "Jacqueline," a tale, in 1814; 
" Human Life," in 1819 ; and " Italy," in 1822. 

Rogers was more particular as to the quality than to the 
quantity of his productions. He possessed the power of . 
touching the finer feelings of his readers, and of versifjring 
his enlarged observations of life and manners with great truth 
and efifect. He was a man of most delicate refinement, and 
possessed a fine collection of pictures by the old masters, 
which he kept at his house. No. 22, St. James* Place. 

Lord Byron has the following entry concerning him in his 
journal : — 

" If you enter his house, his drawing-room, his library — 
you of yourself say : ' This is not the dwelling of a common 
mind.' There is not a gem, a coin, a book thrown aside on 
his chimney-piece, his sofa, his table, that does not bespeak 
an almost fastidious elegance in the possessor." 

Upon one occasion he saved poor Sheridan firom a most 
uncomfortable dilemma. On the 15th May, 1816, Sheridan 
wrote to Rogers from his house in Savile Row : — 

" They are going to put the carpets out of window, and 
break into Mrs. S.'s room and take me. For God's sake let 
me see you." 

The result was that Rogers sent him ;£'i5o, which ar- 
rived in time to save him from the inconvenience of an 
arrest. 

To return from this literary digression to the changes in 
the style of the firm. It will be seen upon reference to the 
Directory that in 1838 it became Rogers, Olding and Co. 

On Sunday, the 24th November^ 1844, an extraordinary 
robbery took place at their bank. 

It was discovered that the strong-room had been opened, 
and that property in bank notes, gold, and bills of exchange, 
amounting to about ;£^5 0,000, had been abstracted. Tlie 
notes were principally large ones, there being no fewer than 
thirty-six one thousand pound notes, and ^1200 in gold. 
The robbery had been effected without any one in the house 
knowing anything about it, notwithstanding there was an 
invalid partner upstairs, besides a clerk on duty as usual A 
reward of ;£^3ooo was offered for the recovery of the property, 
and Her Majesty's free pardon to any one giving such in- 
formation as would lead to the capture of the burglars. The

numbers and description of the stolen notes were freely 
advertised in all the newspapers ; but nothing was heard 
either of the robbers or of the notes until a considerable time 
afterwards, when a parcel was received by the firm, addressed 
in a strange hand, containing all the bank notes that had been 
stolen. 

The name of Rogers does not appear in the firm after 
1855. In the following year it became Olding, Sharpe and 
Co. ; and in 1862 Olding, Osborne and Co. ; who in 1866 
transferred their business to the English Joint Stock Bank, 
which stopped payment in the same year, during the great 
money panic. 

Oriental Bank, 

Threadneedle Street. Established in 185 1. Its paid-up 
capital is ^1,500,000 ; and its reserve fund is ;^5oo,ooo. 

Paltock, John, 

Was a goldsmith and banker in Fleet Street. The earliest 
record that can be ascertained about him is upon one of 
Child's cash-notes of the year 1712, upon which the signature 
of John Paltock was witnessed by his clerk, Mr. Wame. In 
17 16 the same source shows that he had partners, as his firm 
was styled John Paltock and Co. About 1728 they amalga- 
mated with Thomas Snow, the goldsmith ; and the firm then 
became Snow and Paltock. 

Pares and Heygsitte 

Started as bankers at 63, Aldermanbury, about 1805. 
They moved to 25, New Bridge Street, Blackfriars, in 181 7 ; 
and in 1833 they again moved to 6, New Broad Street. In 
the following year they became extinct. 

Paxtons, Cockerell, Traill and Co. 

Set up, in 1813, at 57, Pall Mall, as bankers ; and in 18 19 
the Directory indicates their location at No. 8, Austin Friars. 
However, they became extinct in the year following.

Pewtress and Bobarts 

Were bankers opposite the " Three Kings," in Lombard 
Street. The first time their name appears in the list in the 
Directory is in 1754 ; and in 1769 the firm became extinct. 

Their name occurs several times upon the old notes of 
Child and Co. between those dates. 

Pinckney, 1650 — 74. (See Gosling.) 

Pinhom and Co, 1819—24. (See Weston.) 

Pole and Co. 

Marlar, Lascelles, Pell and Down appear by the Directory 
to have started as bankers in 1773, and to have taken No. 
10, Lombard Street, the premises then just vacated by Lad- 
broke and Co., who had gone to Bank Buildings. They did 
not, however, remain long in Lombard Street, as in 1776 they 
were located at i, Bartholomew Lane. In 1777 Mr. Lascelles 
went out of the firm, and in 1782 it comprised only Down 
and Pell. In 1785 it became Down, Thornton and Free; 
and in 1793 they took in Mr. Cornwall as junior partner. 
The style of the firm continued unaltered until 181 6, when 
the London Directory gives it as Pole, Thornton, Free, 
Down and Scott; and this was the style until 1825, when 
they stopped payment. The following statement concerning 
the failure of this house I excerpt from Lawson's " History of 
Banking" : — 

" The information furnished by Mr. Richards, the Deputy 
Governor of the Bank, to the Committee of the House of 
Commons, is so graphically descriptive of the state of London 
at this period that we cannot omit giving it a place in our 
history. It is taken from the shorthand writer's notes, and 
was nearly in the following words : — 

" * I think,' says Mr. Richards, * it must have been in the 
autumn of 1825 that the Bank began very seriously to con- 
template what would be the result of the speculations and of 
various circumstances that were going forward. They in- 
creased in October and November, when there continued to 



LONDON BANKERS, 1 1 r 

be a very great demand for gold, which, I think, began about 
April ; and, I believe, it advanced down to the first Saturday 
in December.^ Not only the Bank, but, I believe, every 
man's mind connected with the city was in an extreme state 
of excitement and alarm. I think I can recollect, in the 
first Saturday in December, having come home after a very 
weary and anxious day from the Bank, receiving a visit from 
two members of this committee, and one of our bankers, at 
my own house, stating a difficulty in which a banking house 
near to the Bank was placed. 

" * I will not assert it, but I believe they had gone so far as 
to take care of the clearing of that house that evening, so 
as that it might fulfil its engagements. The object of that 
visit was to ascertain what would be my views upon the sub- 
ject. I was called upon because the governor was particularly 
connected with the house of Pole and Co. by marriage and 
other circumstances of relationship. 

" * After speaking upon the subject for some time, I was 
pretty sure that I could answer for the firmness of the Bank ; 
and I ventured to encourage these gentlemen to hope that, 
upon anything like a fair statement, the Bank would not let 
this concern fall through. 

"*It was agreed that upon the following morning (Sunday) 
we should meet as many directors as I could get together, 
with the three gentlemen who had called upon me, at the 
house of one of them, and that in the mean time some eminent 
merchants, friends of the house, should also be called to the 
meeting to assist with their opinion. We so met ; and, afl:er 
hearing all the facts, which were collected in the first instance 
by the bankers and the merchants present, the directors 
authorised their Chair to say that assistance should not be 
wanting. It was agreed that ;^3 00,000 should be placed at 
the disposal of Pole and Co. the next morning, for which the 
Bank was to receive, and did receive, as securities, a number 
of bills of exchange and notes of hand ; and, over and above, 
a mortgage on Sir Peter Pole's property, which was to ride 
over the whole. 

" * They fought it through till Thursday or Friday pretty 
manfully, and up to Saturday evening, when their position 
was such that, without the assistance of the same eminent 
individuals who had taken part before, the clearing would 
not have gone right. Sunday passed, and on Monday mom-

ing the storm began ; and till Saturday night it raged with an 
intensity that it is impossible for me to describe. On Satur- 
day night it had somewhat abated. The Bank had taken a 
firm and deliberate resolution to make common cause with 
the country as far as their humble efforts would go. In the 
following week things began to get a little more steady ; and, 
by the 24th, what with the one pound notes which had gone 
out, and other things, people began to be satisfied ; and then 
it was for the first time in a fortnight that those who had been 
busied in that terrible scene could recollect that they had 
families who had some claim upon their attention. It 
happened to me not to see my children for that week.' " 

PoUe, Thomas. A goldsmith in 1369. 

Portman, John, 

Was a goldsmith in London. The first mention of his 
name occurs in June 22nd, 1670, in one of Alderman 
Edward BlackwelFs ledgers at Child's ; where I have seen the 
following entry in the account of Henry, Earl of St. Albans : — 
" Mr. Portman, for 6 plates, \ j-- ^ 

Wey. io8»' s-'^ / ^^° ^^' ^' 
6 spoons and 6 forks, ) /- 

Wey. 22«' if' ] ^7 5- i- 

And to Mr. Madox for 6 knives, jQ^ o. o." 
This John Portman was one of those goldsmiths who had 
money in the Exchequer in 1672, when Charles the Second 
closed it. The sum he lost was £76,^60 i8s. 2d. ; for which 
he received the annual interest of;^46o5 i3s.od. As his name 
does not occur in the list of goldsmiths for 1677, we may 
safely conclude that that loss ruined him. 

Praeds and Co., 

189, Fleet Street. This business was started by Mr. 
Praed in London, in 1803. The family had long been settled 
as bankers at Truro, in Cornwall, and are said to have been 
noted as early as the sixteenth century. 

James Praed was Sheriff of the county in 1654, and M.P. 
for St. Ives in 166 1. 

In 1 7 17 the family became extinct by the death of Mr. 
William Praed, who left all his property to William Mackworth, 
who assumed the name of Praed, His grandson, William, 



LONDON BANKERS, 1 13 

married the daughter and heiress of Bameby Backwell, Esq., 
of T)n:ingham, Bucks, and great-granddaughter of Sir Francis 
. Child. 

The house Mr. William Praed took for his bank was very 
celebrated, being known as "Mrs. Salmon's Wax Work" 
depdt. She was, in fact, the Madame Tussaud of the time. 
In his '* Memorials of Temple Bar " Mr. Noble writes : — " In 
the reign of Queen Anne, at the Golden Salmon in St. 
Martin's, near Aldersgate, was to be seen the Royal Court of 
England, 140 figures, all made by Mrs. Salmon, * who teaches 
the full art, and sells all sorts of moulds and glass eyes.* 
Also the famous Temple of Diana, &c., by Mrs. Salmon, 
who is removed from St. Martin le Grand to the Golden 
Salmon at Temple Bar, near St. Dunstan's Church, which is 
more convenient for the quality's coaches to stand un- 
molested." She subsequently occupied 189, Fleet Street, 
until it was taken by Mr. Praed, when it was pulled down, 
and the present bank built, in 1802, from designs by Sir 
John Soane. 

In 1805 the Directory shows that the partners in the firm 
were Praed, Digby, Box, Babbage and Co. In 1807 it was 
Praed, Digby, Box, Barnard and Newcombe. Their address 
was 71, Fleet Street, in 1810, when the name of Mackworth 
is to be observed as that of the second partner. Praed, 
Mackworth and Newcombe continued to be the style of the 
firm until 18 18, when Mr. Vere Fane was admitted as junior 
partner; and no further change took place until 1836, when 
the name of Newcombe disappeared, and the firm' became 
Praed, Mackworth, Fane and Praed. 1838 was the last 
year that Mr. Mackworth's name was associated with the 
firm. In the next year it consisted of William Tyringham 
Praed, Vere Fane, Bulkley John Mackworth Praed, and 
Patrick Johnson. 

Since 1850 the style of the firm has been Praeds and Co. 
It now consists of the following partners : — 

.^ Charles T)rringham Praed, M.P. 

Winthrop Mackworth Praed. 
Herbert Bulkley Praed, M.P, 

Prescott, Grote and Co. 

This banking house was established in Threadneedle 
Street, at the house afterwards numbered 57, on the ist of

114 A HANDBOOK OF 

January, 1766, by Messrs. George Prescott, Andrew Grote, 
William Culverden, ard John Hollingsworth, under the style 
of Prescott, Grote and Co. For this information I am in- 
debted to the courtesy of the present firm. 

The following changes I have gleaned from the vaiioos 
Directories. In 1778 they were located at 62, Threadneedle 
Street ; and in 1799 the name of Culverden does not appear, 
the firm standing as Prescott, Grote and Hollingsworth. In 
1 80 1 it was Prescott, Grote and Prescott; and in 1820, Grote, 
Prescott and Grote ; which continued to be the style of the 
firm until 1838, when the name of the elder Mr. Grote re- 
tired, and three new partners were admitted. It then stood 
thus : Prescott, Grote, Ames, Baillie and Grote. In the fol- 
lowing year the name of Cave was substituted for Baillie ; 
and the published lists for the year 1848 no longer contain that 
of Ames, which had been associated with the firm for the 
past ten years. In that year the style became Prescott, Grote, 
Cave and Cave. 

From that date to the present, the firm has been known 
by the style of Prescott, Grote and Co., having occupied 
the same premises. No. 62, Threadneedle Street, since 1778. 
It now consists of the following partners : — 

Joseph Grote. 
Charles Cave. 
Charles Andrew Prescott. 
Henry Warner Prescott. 
Walter Kidman Foster, 
Francis William Buxton. 

Price, Thomas, 

Was a goldsmith. He was one of those keeping running 
cashes in 1677, as the Little London Directory shows he was 
at the " Goat," in Lumbard Street. 

I have met with his name upon a draft drawn upon Child 
and iRogers in 1684 by one Will Barber, who writes : — 

"Pray pay to Mr. Thomas Price, goldsmith. Lumber 
Streete, London, two hundred pounds." It is endorsed by 
him. 

Price, Sir C, and Co. 

The well-known banking business of Sir Charles Price, 
Marryat and Co. originated in the bank of Robert and 



LONDON BANKERS. 1 1 5 

Thomas Harrison, established at 77, Ironmonger Lane, about 
the year 1785. In 1788 they were located at i, Mansion 
House Street. 

In 1794 the name of Harrison and Co. is not seen in the 
list of bankers ; but I observe that Sir James Sanderson, 
Brenchley, Stacey, Parker and Newman were carrying on 
banking business at i. Mansion-house Street. 

In 1791 Sir James Sanderson and Mr. Brenchley were 
partners in a banking house, doing business under the style 
of Sanderson and Co., in Southwark. They dissolved partner- 
ship in 1794. 

In 1796 the style of the firm was Sanderson, Harrison, 
Prickett and Newman. In 1799 Sir James Sanderson's 
name drops out of the list, the style then being Harrison 
and Co. In 1807 it was -Harrison, Kay and Chapman ; 
and in 18 10 Harrisons, Price, Kay and Chapman. In 1814, 
the name of Harrison disappearing from the firm, it became 
Sir Charles Price, Bart., Sir William Kay, Bart., Charles 
Price, junior, and George Chapman. In 181 7 it was Sir C. 
Price, Kay and Coleman ; and in 18 19 Marryat, Price, Kay, 
and Chapman, In 1823 Joseph Marryat, M.P., Sir W. 
Kay, Sir C. Price, and J. Coleman were conducting the busi- 
ness. In 1825 Sir William Kay became head partner, with 
Sir C. Price, Joseph Marryat and J. Coleman. Mr. Marryat 
is well known as a large collector of porcelain, and as the 
author of a valuable book on Pottery and Porcelain. 

In 1833 the style of the firm became Price, Marryat and 
Co. ; and in] 1835 they moved from Mansion-house Street 
to King William Street, where they remained under the same 
style until 1866, when they stopped payment. 

Paget, Bainbridges and Co., 

12, St Paul's Churchyard, started in 1832. In 1864 the 
number of their house became 5, St. Paul's Church Yard. 
This firm suspended payment in 1866. The original style 
had undergone no alteration during its existence.

Ii6 A HAXDBOOK OF 

Ransom, Boaverie and Ca 

This well-known West-end banking firm was founded by 
Mr. Ransom, who took into partnership Sir F. B. Morland 
and Mr. Hammersley, mider the style of Ransom, Morland 
and Hammersley, who established themselves about 1786 at 
57, Pall MalL That continued to be the style of the firm 
until 1796, when Mr. Hammersley left them to start a new 
bank, which he set up at 76, Pall MalL (For particulars of 
this house see under the name of " Hammersley.") From 
that date to 1814 the firm was known as Ransom, Morland 
and Co., carrying on business at 56, Pall MalL 

In 181 9 Sir F. B. Morland left the firm to establish a bank 
of his own under the style of Morland and Co. In the fol- 
lowing year the Directory shows that Ransom and Co. moved 
' to No. 34, Pall Mall; in 182 1 to 25, Pall Mall ; and in 1823 
to I, Pall Mall East, at which house the bank is still located. 

At the death of Mr. Ransom, the Honourable Douglas 
Kinnaird (fourth son of the seventh Lord Kinnaird, by 
Elizabeth, daughter of Gafiin Ransom, Esq.,) became head 
partner. He was the uncle of the present head partner, the 
Honourable Arthur Kinnaird ; and it was he who built the 
premises Nos. i and 2, Pall Mall East, as a banking house. 

The style of the firm was Ransom and Co. untU Messrs. 
Bouverie, Murdoch, Bouverie and James, of 11, Haymarket, 
amalgamated with them in 1856 ; since which time the style 
of the firm has been Messrs. Ransom, Bouverie and Co. 

The firm now consists of the following partners : — 

The Hon. Arthur Kinnaird, M.P. 
James Gordon Murdoch, 
Philip Pleydell Bouverie. 
Charles Townshend Murdoch. 
Arthur Fitzgerald Klinnaird. 
Henry Hales Pleydell Bouverie.

fiemington and Co. 

The banking business of Messrs. Remington, Stephenson, 
Remington and Toulmin originated in Lombard Street in 
the firm of Knight and Jackson. About the year 1729, they 
appear to have been doing a considerable business, we may 
therefore assume for them a greater antiquity. Their sig- 
natures are seen upon a large number of old drafts between 
that year and 1750, in which latter the firm is represented by 
W. Hoggart, who, as we shall see, subsequently became a 
partner. About 1763 the firm was styled Knight, Batson 
and Co., who wete located in Lombard Street, facing Lloyd's. 
The^ house was numbered 69 in 1770. 

In 1766 the Directory shows that the firm were Batson, 
Stephenson and Hoggart. 

In 1785 the name of Hoggart is not seen in the list ; but 
it is replaced by the names of two new partners ; thus, the 
firm in that year was Batson, Stephenson, Grase and Glover. 
R. Glover was a clerk signing for Knight, Batson and Co. 
In 1794 it was Stephenson, Batson, Remington and Smith; 
and from 1824 to 1828, it was Remington, Stephenson, 
Remington and Toulmin. 

Mr. Lawson, in his "History of Banking," states that 
early in December, 1828, some unfavourable reports had got 
abroad respecting the credit of Messrs. Remington and Co., 
of Lombard Street, bankers, in consequence of which many 
customers removed their accounts from them. 

To counteract these rumours and allay all apprehensions, 
five of the principal bankers in London investigated the 
affairs of the bank, with the result of which they were so well 
satisfied, that each of them advanced ;^2 0,000 on such 
securities as they found the bank to possess. They further 
made a declaration of their entire conviction of the solvency 
of the house, and went so far as to induce many parties who 
had withdrawn their accounts to return them. 

This condition of things, however, did not last long, as on 
27th December, 1828, it was reported that Mr. Rowland 
Stephenson, the active partner, had absconded with a large 
sum of money. He was M.P. for Leominster, and Treasurer 
of St. Bartholomew's Hospital, &c., &c. The efiect of this 
was that they were obliged to suspend payment ; a step that 
caused the utmost consternation in the City. 

It transpired that Mr. Stephenson had been addicted to 



Ii8 A HANDBOOK OF 

gambling, and that his defalcations extended to ;^2oo,ooo. 
He made off with ;£^7 0,000 in Exchequer Bills belonging to 
various customers of the bank. 

Mr. Lawson further states, that the mode adopted by 
Stephenson to deceive his partners with respect to the various 
deposits of Exchequer Bills was, to have sealed packets with 
the names and addresses of the depositors, and the amount 
of Exchequer Bills endorsed thereon ; so that the bankers, 
who investigated the affairs of the bank, concluding that the 
actual securities were inclosed in the envelopes, did not 
examine them further. 

Rowland Stephenson was charged with bankruptcy and 
embezzlement, and a warrant was issued for the apprehension 
of himself and of his clerk, Lloyd, with a reward of ;^iooo for 
the former, and of ;^3oo for the latter. 

After various adventures, they succeeded in getting to 
Clovelly, where they met with a vessel bound for Savannah. 

Robarts, Lubbock and Co. 

The business of this well-known banking-house was started 
at II, Mansion-house Street, on the 5th February, 1772, by 
Sir William Lemon, Buller, Furley, Lubbock and Co., which 
was the style of the firm until 1776, when Mr. Buller retired. 
It was then Lemon, Furley, Lubbock and Co. In 1785 
another change took place — Sir William Lemon's name 
dropped out of the firm, and they brought in Mr. Bosanquet 
as one of the junior partners, — the style being Furley, Lub- 
bock, Bosanquet and Co. During the same year the name 
of Forster appears as head partner in place of Furley ; the 
style of the firm thus becoming Forster, Lubbock, Bosanquet 
and Co. In 1785 it was Forster, Lubbock, Bosanquet and 
Co. ; and in 1800 the Bosanquets retired from the associa- 
tion, — Mr. Samuel Bosanquet entering into partnership with 
Messrs. Beachcroft and Reeves for the purpose of establish- 
ing a separate bank. 

In 1 80 1 a further change is recorded ; the style of the firm 
became Forster, Lubbocks, Forster and Clarke. In 18 14 it 
was Sir John Lubbock, Lubbock, Forster and Co; in 1820 
Sir John William Lubbock, Forster, Clarke and Co. ; and in 
1835 Sir John William Lubbock, Forster and Co. In i860 
they amalgamated with Messrs. Robarts, Curtis and Co., 
under the style of Robarts, Lubbock and Co., and carried 



LONDON BANKERS. 1 19 

on business at 15, Lombard Street, where they have been 
located ever since. 

[For the above information I am indebted to Sir John 
Lubbock, Bart.] 

Robarts, Curtis, Were, Homyold and Berwick, according 
to the list of bankers in the London Directory, were established 
in 1 792 at 35, Cornhill. In 1 797 they moved to 15, Lombard 
Street ; and in 1802 they were located at 18, Exchange 
Alley, which, probably, was only a temporary abode, as in 
the next list, in 1805, the style of the firm was Robarts, 
Curtis, Robarts and Curtis, at 15, Lombard Street. In 181 8 
it became Sir William Curtis, Robarts and Curtis ; and from 
1834 imtil i860, the year in which they amalgamated with 
LublDock, Forster and Co., the style of the firm was Robarts, 
Curtis and Co. 

Lubbock's old house in Mansion-house Street was a por- 
tion of Sir Martin Bowe's bequest to the Goldsmith's Com- 
pany, and was leased of them. 

The firm now consists of the following partners ; — 

Henry Christopher Robarts. 
Sir John Lubbock, Bart., M.P. 
Abraham John Robarts. 
William Cotton Curtis. 
Henry James Lubbock. 
Beaumont William Lubbock. 
Cecil Chaplin. 

Xoffey, Neale and Co., 1759—70. (See Neale.) 
Sogers and Co., 1799—1855. (See Olding.) 
Jftokesley, Gregory de, 

Goldsmith in the reign of Edward the First. He was chief 
Assay Master of all the King's Mints throughout England 
Keeper of the King's Exchange at London, and was eight 
times mayor, /.<?., in 1275 to 1281 and 1285. He lived in 
Old Change. 

Xowe, Thomas, (or Row 

As it was sometimes spelt) was a goldsmith. His name 
appears as early as 1666 in the ledgers of Alderman Back- 
well, with whom he kept an account. 

He was one of those goldsmiths who had money in the 
Exchequer when it was closed by Charles the Second on 2nd 



A HANDBOOK OF 

January, 1672. The amount he lost by that royal proceed- 
ing was ;^ 1 7,6 1 5 17s. 8d., for which he had six per cent 
interest paid him, amounting to ;£^io56 19s. per annum. In 
the Little London Directory of 1677, the names of Roweand 
Green, keeping running cashes at The George, in Lumbaid 
Street, lead one to suppose that he was not entirely ruined by 
the closing of the Exchequer as so many others were. 

Royal British Bank, 

16, Tokenhouse Vard. This Joint-Stock Bank was estab- 
lished in 1 85 1, with branches at 429, Strand, Westminster 
Bridge Road, and 97, Goswell Road. 

In 1856 they opened more branches and stopped payment, 
overwhelming many hundreds of families in ruin. 

Saint Dnnstan 

Was the patron saint of the goldsmith's craft ; wherefore I 
cannot refrain from giving the following memoranda concern- 
ing him, gleaned from Herbert's ** History of the Goldsmiths' 
Company" : — 

"The honours paid by the Company to St. Dunstan, 
showed their high veneration of that saint. His image, of 
silver gilt, set with gems, adorned their Hall, and his memory 
was drank at particular times from a great cup equally rich, 
called * St. Dunstan's Cup/ They had their ' St. Dunstan's 
light' in St John Zachary Church, and their Chapel of St 
Dunstan, with a second image of him, in St Paul's Cathedral 
The style given him in their book, is * Seynt Dunston, our 
blessed patron, protector, and founder.' 

"The loth Henry VIII. directs that the new livery shall 
be given on St. Dun Stan's Day, then next coming, and that 
*the gownys shalbe violet and the hoodys violet and 
scarlet.' " 

Sanderson and Co., 1794—8. (See Price.) 

Sansom and Co. 

This firm was started at 65, I^ombard Street, in 179 1, by 
Messrs. Harcourt, Blake, Sansom, Postlethwaite and Tanner. 

In 1 80 1 it became Sansom, Blake and Postlethwaite, and 
it so continued until 1 811, when another change is recorded, 
and the style became Sansom, Postlethwaite and Sansom* 



LONDON BANKERS, I2I 

In 1820 it was Sansom and Postlethwaite, which continued 
to be the style thereof until 183 1, after which date no trace 
of them is discoverable in the Directory. 

Sapte, Muspratt and Co. 

Of 7 7, Lombard Street. Their business has been conducted 
upon these premises since 1787, when Vere, Lucadon, 
Troughton, Lucadon and Smart started as bankers, occupy- 
ing the premises vacated in that year by Boldero, Kenddl 
and Co. This house was before 1770 known by the sign of 
" The Vine." 

In 1805 the firm was Veres, Lucadon and Smart In 1809 
considerable changes took place, as the Directory for the 
following year shows that the firm consisted of Veres, Smart, 
Baron, Hawkins and TurnbuU. In 18 14 the name of Turn- 
bull had disappeared, otherwise the firm was unchanged. In 
18 1 8 it was Veres, Baron and Hawkins; and in 1824, it 
became Veres, Ward and Co. That style continued for ten 
years ; but in 1834 it stood as Vere, Sapte, Banbury and Co. 
In 1838 Mr. Muspratt's name appeared as a partner. The 
Directory of 1844 exhibits further change; Mr. Vere, the 
head of the firm for many years, ceasing to be connected with 
it, and the style becoming Sapte, Banbury, Muspratt and Co. 
In 1856 it was Sapte, Muspratt, Banbury, Nix and Co., 
which continued to be the designation until the amalgama- 
tion took place in 1859 between this firm and that of Messrs. 
Fullers and Co., of Moorgate Street, under the style of Fuller, 
Banbury, Nix and Mathieson. 

Scott (Sir Samuel, Bart), and Co. 

Sir Claude Scott and Co. first appear in the list'of bankers in 
the London Directory for 1825. They commenced business 
at Holies Street, Cavendish Square, and in the following year 
they took the premises they now occupy. No. i, Cavendish 
Square. In 1828 the style of the firm was Sir Claude 
Scott, Bart., Dent and Co. Sir Claude Scott and Co. con- 
tinued to be the style until 1847, ^^e firm consisting of Sir 
Samuel Scott, Bart., Claude Edward Scott and Samuel Scott. 
- After that date it was styled Sir Samuel Scott and Co., 
and the designation has been maintained to the present 
day.

Scrimpshaw, Michael (or Scrimpshire, 

As it was spelt in the old ledgers of Child and Co, in 1675), 
was one of those goldsmiths whose names occur in the Little 
London Directory of 1677 as keeping running cashes. He 
was carrying on his trade at the Golden Lion, in Fleet Street 
at that period. 

Shales and Smitkin 

Flourished between 171 1 — 28. In the latter year the style 
of the firm was Charles Shales and Co. Nothing further can 
be traced of them, nor can their whereabouts be ascertained. 

Sharpe and Sons 

Were established in West Smithfield as bankers about 1810. 
They failed early in the year 1825. Upon that event Mr. 
Hill, who had been their manager, immediately set up for 
himself. 

Shore, Matthew, 

Was a goldsmith residing in Lombard Street about 1461. 
He was the husband of the celebrated Jane Shore, who was 
mistress to King Edward the Fourth. 

Mr. Martin says, that it has^een stated, though there does 
not seem to be any evidence to support the tradition, that 
Matthew Shore carried on the business of a goldsmith at 
the "Grasshopper." That he lived in Lombard Street is 
recorded in the ballad of " Jane Shore" : — 

** In Lombard Street I once did dwell. 
As London yet can witness well ; 
Where many gallants did beholde ; 
My beauty in a shop of golde." 

Nothing further can be ascertained about M. Shore. It is 
probable that he was compelled to leave London in conse- 
quence of his wife's infidelity. 

Jane Shore, however, lived as late as the reign of Henry 
the Eighth.

This banking firm is first found in the London Directory 
in the year 1759, when its style was Smith and Payne, carry- 
ing on their business near Coleman Street, Lothbury. The 
same authority shows us that in 1766 they had removed to 
18, Lombard Street. Before particularising the various 
changes that have occurred therein from time to time, I will 
give verbatim an interesting and lively account of this great 
banking-house, supplied by Mr. F. Martin, in his " Stories of 
Banks and Bankers :'* — " The old banking establishment of 
Smith, of Nottingham, now merged in the well-known firm of 
Smith, Payne and Co., of Lombard Street. Smith the First, 
the Smith of all other Smiths, was, at the beginning of the 
last century, a respectable draper at Nottingham, well 
patronised by the gudewives of the farmers, who brought 
their quarterly stock of thread and ribbons at his shop, after 
having sold their pigs. The wives, of course, brought the 
husbands ; and, though the latter wanted no caps and laces, 
they liked to have a quiet half hour in the cozy back-parlour, 
to discuss the news of the day and the state of the markets 
with Mr. Smith. A frequent theme of conversation was the 
danger of the roads. The neighbourhood of Nottingham, the 
home of Robin Hood, was (as ever) infested with footpads, and 
Dick Turpin himself, or one of the Dick Turpins, was believed 
to honour the country at .times with his presence. It was 
not that the farmers feared for their wives, or their pigs, but 
they feared for their money, dearer to them than their pigs — 
it would be wrong to say their wives. The bland draper, 
having long listened to these outpourings of woe, at last hit 
upon a ready solution of the difficulty. * I will take care of 
your money,' Mr. Smith proposed, ' and will, moreover, keep 
an account of your market transactions, and you may draw 
your cash, or get goods from me, whenever you like." 

The offer was accepted, first by one, then by a dozen, then 
by a score of farmers, and soon Mr. Smith found himself the 



124 A HANDBOOK OF 

holder of very considerable sums of money. He was a 
shrewd man, the Nottingham draper, and the cash did not 
remain idle in his hands, as every man knew who had a good 
bill to discount anywhere in Notts or Lancashire. The 
merchants of Preston themselves were often glad to get 
accommodation, and the profits were as sure as the returns 
were quick. Now, Mr. Smith took the second step in his 
prosperous career, and a very sensible one it was. He 
allowed a small interest to his friends the depositors. The 
pleased farmers, it need not be said, were, after this, perfectly 
enthusiastic in handing their surplus cash to the Nottingham 
draper, instead of putting it into an old stocking at home, 
where, whatever else might happen to it, it certainly would 
not grow. So things went on in the natural course until 
the draper became a regular banker, and justly thinking his 
shop a hindrance to his business, gave up the trade in cloth 
and ribbons in favour of that in money and bills. Smith the 
First died a Nottingham banker; and Smith the Second 
extended his operations to Hull and Lincoln ; while Smith 
the Third sought and found a London correspondent in the 
person of a shrewd and active man, Mr. Payne, with whom 
he subsequently entered into partnership. Hence the firm of 
Smith, Payne and Co., still flourishing near the Mansion 
House, undevoured by Joint-Stock. Thus it will be seen that 
this firm of bankers had been established for some years in the 
same capacity in Nottingham and elsewhere before they 
made their appearance in London, about 1759, under the 
style of Smith and Payne. In 1773 an additional partner was 
taken in, and the firm became Smith, Payne and Smith. 
In 1778 they were located in George Street, Mansion House; 
and in 1785 the London Directory discloses the firm as 
consisting of Smith, Payne, Smith and Payne. In 1824 
Smith, Payne and Smith were at Mansion-house Place ; and 
in 1830 they found a local habitation in No. i, Lombard 
Street, where they still are. The style of the firm continuing 
to be Smith, Payne and Smiths, and consisting of the follow-

about the year 1758 by Bland, Gray and Stephenson at 
*'The Three Kings," in Lombard Street. In the Royal 
Annual Kalendarof 1765, their house is called the ** Golden 
Ball." In 1762 Mr. Stephenson left the firm, probably to 
join Batson and Hoggart in forming a new one about this 
time — (see Remington). In 1763 the style became Smith, 
Wright and Gray. In 1770 their house was numbered 55, 
Lombard Street, and in 1774 they were at 21, Lombard 
Street, where they continued until they amalgamated with 
Esdaile and Co. in 1792.

was jEfi^z I3S' 6d. per annum. In the Little London 
Directory of 1677 it is recorded that John Snell was keep- 
ing running cashes at the " Fox," in Lombard Street. He 
was probably the son of George Snell, if not the same man, 
as they appear to have been careless as to Christian names 
and the spelling of names at that period.

Steel Yard (Steleyard, or Stilliard) 

Was situated in Upper Thames Street Lawson says the 
merchants of the Steelyard were a corporation established in 
the reign of Henry the Third. They were principally Ger- 
man merchants trading with London, and were endowed 
with important privileges, and exempted from several fiscal 
duties paid by other aliens. Stow says that their hall was 
" large, built of stone, with three arched gates towards the 
street ; the middlemost whereof is far bigger than the others, 
and is seldom opened ; the other two be secured up ; the 
same is now called the old Hall." 

Cunningham writes that he was assured by his friend, Mr. 
T. Hudson Turner (than whome, he says, no person alive was 
better versed in the history of mediaeval London), that the 
Steelyard derives its name from its being the place where 
the King's steelyard, or beam, was erected for weighing the 
tonnage of goods imported into London. When the tonnage 
was transferred to the Mayor and Corporation, the King's 
beam was moved first to Comhill, and afterwards to Weigh- 
housc Yard, in Little Eastcheap. 

These merchants were settled in London as early as 1250. 
In addition to the valuable privileges which were granted 
them by the King, the Corporation of London likewise 
granted them others, in return for which they were expected 
to keep in repair the City gate of Bishopsgate, and to bear a 
portion of the expense of fortifying it in case of need. 

Lawson goes on to say that, previously to the year 1284, 
they were not permitted to rent any houses or warehouses in 
London, but lodged during their stay with the brokers who 
sold their produce for them. When, however, they were per- 
mitted to occupy houses and warehouses of their own, they 
no longer employed the brokers, but sold their merchandise 
themselves ; wherein they practised many frauds, particularly 



LON'DON BANKERS. 127 

in their weights. They were detected in the year 1286, 
when many of them were sent to the Tower ; and, accord- 
ing to Fabian, their weights were publicly burnt They were 
afterwards pardoned and their privileges renewed ; and all 
went well with them until the reign of Elizabeth, when they 
again fell into disgrace. 

In the year 1597 Queen Elizabeth issued a commission to 
the Mayor and Sheriff of London to shut up the house in- 
habited by the merchants of the Steelyard in London, and 
ordered all of them to quit her dominions. From that time 
the Steelyard was never used for a like purpose. 

It was from such bodies as these (writes Mr. Francis in 
his History of the Bank of England), the " Steelyard mer- 
chants," our masters in the art of commerce, that the Kings 
of England, on any sudden exigency, sought and obtained 
their principal supplies, on what now appears an exorbitant 
interest. The important body of Steelyard merchants was 
cherished with great and peculiar privileges. If great privi- 
leges were granted, however, great services were often claimed 
in return ; for, as Mr. Gilbart remarks, " The Steelyard Com- 
pany was a kind of bank to our kings whenever they wanted 
money on any sudden emergency; but the company was 
sure, in the end, to be well paid for such assistance."

This firm originated in the business of William HodsoU, a

notes of Samuel Child and Co., in December, 1752. In the 
LfOndon Directory for 1770 Edward HodsoU appears among 
the bankers, near Catherine Street in the Strand. In 1776 
he had a partner, as we find the firm was Hodsoll and 
Michell; and in 1795 they took into partnership Sir Walter 
Stirling, as junior partner. In 1799 the style of the firm was 
Hodsoll and Stirling at 345, Strand, and that continued until 
1824, when it became Sir W. Stirling, Bart., Stirling and Hod- 
soll. In 1828 they gave up business, and most of the ac- 
counts were transferred to Snows.

Stocks, Humphry (or Stokes, 

As he is called by Samuel Pepys in his Diary). The Little 
London Directory of 1677 shows that he was keeping running^ 
cashes at the Black Horse in Lumbard Street : but Pepy? 
references to him indicate that he was established many 
years previous. 

Bland and Son were subsequently established at this sign. 
(See Barnett, Hoare and Co.) 

Stone and Co., 1704. (See Martin.) 

Strahan, Paul and Co. 

This was an old-established bank, supposed to have been 
started by one Jeremiah Snow^ who was a goldsmith at the 
sign of y" Golden Anchor in the Strand, in 1660 (?) ; but it 
might have been much older. As far back as 1670 Alder- 
man Backwell's ledgers show several transactions which he 
had with Mr. Jeremy Snow, the goldsmith. 

Like all or most members of his trade, he lent money to 
the Exchequer ; so that when Charles the Second shut it up 
on 2nd January, 1672, Mr. Snow had no less a sum in it than 
£S9i1^^ i^s. 8d. ; in consideration of which he received a 
bond from the King covenanting to pay him ;£'3586 17s., as 
an annuity, — which represented 6 per cent, upon the sum 
royally abstracted from him. 

Notwithstanding this loss, the house and business of 
Snow continued to prosper. In his " Memorials of Temple 
Bar" Mr. T. C. Noble says : — "John Snow in 1636 had to 
pay £^ 10s. 8d. for expenses attending the plague then 
raging in his three houses in St Clement's Parish; but 
whether he was then a goldsmith is unknown. A half century 
later the Snows were flourishing in Fleet Street as well as the 
Strand, as proved by several entries in the St Dunstan 
registers. Gay, the poet, celebrates Thomas Snow for his 
sagacity during the fatal year 1720, so well known as the 
"great bubble year.'' For the poetic tribute see under the 
head of " Atwell" in this work. 

The name of Snow does not appear in the Little London 
Directory of 1677 ; and, as no other appeared until 1736, 1 
have recourse to the endorsement on the old cash notes of 
Messrs. Child and Co. Upon them in the year 1729 we 
find the names of " Snow and Paltock, witness J. Thomson." 



LONDON BANKERS, 129 

John Paltock had been a goldsmith in Fleet Street for some 
years ; and here is a proof of his having amalgamated with 
Mr. Snow. 

It is supposed by some that this business was carried on 
in Fleet Street as well as in the Strand for some years. On 
a cash note, dated 1 736, I find the name Thomas Snow and 
Co., witnessed by Alex. Ross. The firm appears to have con- 
tinued as Thomas Snow and Co. until about 1742. 

The following story is told by Mr. Frederick Martin in his 
stories of " Banks and Bankers." Sampson Gideon, a great 
Jew broker, had occasion to borrow ;^2o,ooo of Mr. Snow, 
the banker. Very shortly afterwards a panic occurred ; and 
Mr. Snow, alarmed for the safety of his loan, addressed a 
piteous epistle to the Jew, entreating him to pay the money 
at once, and thereby save him from bankruptcy and utter 
ruin. 

Gideon knew his man well, and determined to give him 
back his coveted property, but to punish him at the same 
time for his want of confidence. Accordingly he sent 
for a phial of hartshorn, and, wrapping it in twenty notes of 
;£'iooo each, returned the loan in that form^to " Mr. Thomas 
Snow, goldsmith, near Temple Bar." 

The old firm of Sir W. Stirling and Co. gave up business 
about 1828, as I have recorded under that head ; and it was 
taken over by Snow. 

In 1754 Mr. Snow took into partnership Mr. William 
Denne, who was a goldsmith in Cheapside, and the style of the 
firm continued Snow and Denne until about 1768, when they 
associated with themselves William Sandby, who had for many 
years been a successful bookseller in Fleet Street. The 
firm was then known as Snow, Denne, Denne and Sandby. 
In 1798 Mr. J. D. Paul was admitted into it, the style 
then being Snow, Sandby, Paul and Knick. In 1833 the 
firm was " Robert Snow, Senior and Junior, William Strahan, 
Sir J. D. Paul, Bart, and John D. Paul, junior." After 1843 
we find it styled Messrs. Strahan, Paul and Bates ; which 
designation continued until 1856, when this old established 
house failed through the unscrupulous conduct of the firm, 
who mis-appropriated the securities left in their charge. They 
were all convicted of the offence, and sentenced to penal 
servitude for various terms. Mr. Bates, who was the least culp- 
able, was released some years ago ; but he has since died.

i^o A HASDBOOK OF 

The business was taken over by the London and West- 
minster £:ink. who established a branch on the same 
premises, which they have occupied ever since. During 
alterations recently made in the front shop, the old sign of 
the Golden Anchor was taken down from the wall, and prob-

Strange, Dashwood and CrO^ 

Of 150, New Bond Street, originated in the firm of Walwyn,

1709 the firm consisted of Wali»yn, Strange, Da^wood, 
Steward. Agnew and Macgeorge. The name of Walwyn does 
not occur in the List in iSoi : but the firm had changed ite 
st)le to Strange. Dashwood, Steward, Agnew and Ca, and it 
disappeared from the roll of bankers about 1S02.

Of 41, West Smithfield. This business appears to have been 
originated by John Jones, about 1S09. at iS, West Smithfield 
A few years afterwards he moved into Xa 41. In 1827 he 
took his son into pannership. under the style of Jones and 
Son; and that continued to be the designation until 1848, 
notwithstanding the business was in the sole hands of Alfired 
Jones. It ^"ould seem from the Directors* that it was taken 
over by Stride and Stride in 1S49, as I find that in that year 
they were occup}-ing the same premises. The name does not 
find record after 1S73.

LONDON BANKERS. I3< 

lost a vast sum of money by the closing of the Exchequer on 
2nd January, 1672, was obliged to give up his business, and 
that John Temple, his chief man, set up as a goldsmith ; as 
in the Little London Directory we find John Temple and 
John Scale were keeping running cashes at the "Three 
Tuns*' in Lumbard Street in 1677. 

For the following remarks respecting the Harp and Cross 
money (money coined by the Commonwealth) I am indebted 
to Pepys, who states that he took them down in writing 
from Temple's own mouth : — " Before the Harp and Crosse 
money was cried down, he and his fellow goldsmiths did 
make some particular trials what proportion that money 
bore to the old King's money, and they found that it gene- 
rally come to, one with another, about ;^ 25 in every ;£'ioo. 
Of this money there was, upon the calling of it in, ;^65o,ooo 
at least brought into the Tower ; and from thence he com- 
putes that the whole money of England must be full 
j;^ 1 6, 2 5 0,000, but, for all this, believes that there is about 
^^30,000,000 : he supposing that about the King's coming 
in, when he begun to observe the quantity of the new money, 
people begun to be fearful of this money's being cried down, 
and so picked it out and set it a going as fast as they could 
to be rid of it ; and he thinks ;^3o,ooo,ooo the rather, be- 
cause, if there were but ;^ 16, 2 5 0,000, the King, having 
;;^2,ooo,ooo every year, would have the whole money of the 
kingdom in his hands in eight years. 

"He tells me about ^^350,000 sterling was coined out of the 
French money, the proceeds of Dunkirke : so that, with what 
was coined of the Cross money, there is new coined about 
;;^T,ooo,ooo, besides the gold, which is guessed at ;£^5oo,ooo. 

" He tells me that, though the King did deposit the French 
money in money in pawn all the while for ;£^35o,ooo, he 
was forced to borrow thereupon till the tools could be made 
for the new minting in the present form. Yet the interest he 
paid for that time came to ;£^3 5,000 : Viner having to his 
knowledge ;^io,ooo for the use of;^ioo,ooo of it." 

Alderman Backwell also must have made money out of 
this source, as his ledgers show that he kept separate ac- 
counts headed " Harpe and Crosse Money." 

On the 19th May, 1663, Pepys visited the Tower with Sir 
John Minnes ; when he was shown by Mr. Slingsby and Mr. 
Howard, Comptroller of the Mint, the method of making the 

9—2 



132 A HANDBOOK OF 

new money, of which they coined i6 or 24,000 pounds per 
week. After relating the process, and an anecdote about a man 
swallowing the silver in small globules, by which means he 
acquired a large amount of metal, he goes into a calculation 
about the Harp and Cross money, which I quote: — "At 
dinner they did discourse very finely to us of the probability 
that there is a vast deal of money hid in the land, from this : 
that in King Charles's time there was near ten millions of 
money coyned, besides what was then in being of King 
James's and Queen Elizabeth's, of which there is a good deal 
at this day in being. 

" Next, that there was but ;£^7 50,000 coyned of the Harp 
andJCrosse money ; and of this there was ;;^Soo,ooo brought 
in upon its being called in. And from very good argument 
they find that there cannot be less of it in Ireland and Scot- 
land than ;^i 00,000 3 so that there is but ;^i 50,000 miss- 
ing ; and of that, suppose that there should be not above 
;;^5o,ooo stQl remaining, either melted down, hid, or lost, or 
hoarded up in England, there will then be but ;£"! 00,000 
left to be thought to have been transported. 

"Now, if ;£'75o,ooo in twelve years' time lost but ;£" 100,000 
in danger of being transported, then ;^i 0,000,000 in thirty- 
five years' time will have lost but ji^3, 888,880 and odd 
pounds ; and, as there is ;£^65o,ooo remaining after twelve 
years' time in England, so, after thirty-five years' time, which 
was within this two years, there ought in proportion to have 
been resting £6,1 1 1, 1 20, or thereabouts, besides King James 
and Queen Elizabeth's money. Now, that most of this money 
be hid is evident, as they reckon, because of the dearth of 
money immediately upon the calling in of the States' money, 
which was ;£^5 90,000 that come in ; and then there was not 
any money to be had in this City, which they say, to their 
own observation and knowledge was so. And therefore, 
though I can say nothing in it myself, I do not dispute it." 

Turner, Bernard, 

Was a goldsmith, one of those who suffered by the King 
closing the Exchequer on 2nd January, 1672. The amount 
of money he had lent was ;£^i6,275 9s. 8d. ; for which he re- 
ceived a bond covenanting to pay him 6 per cent, interest, 
i.e,y ;£g'j6 los. 6d. per annum.

continued the business of his father. Sir Thomas Vyner, in 
Lombard Street, on the site of the present Post Office. 



134 A HANDBOOK OF 

Sir Robert Vyner was Lord Mayor of London in 1665. 
An amusing anecdote is told of this ** Prince of Goldsmiths" 
on the occasion of his entertaining King Charles the Second 
at Guildhall during his Mayoralty. In Grammont*s " Personal 
History of Charles the Second" it is recorded that 

** Charles more than once dined with the good citizens of 
London on their Lord Mayor's Day, and did so the year Sir 
Robert Viner was Lord Mayor. Sir Robert was a very loyal 
man, and, if you will allow the expression, very fond of his 
sovereign ; but what with the joy he felt at heart for the 
honour done him by his Prince, and the warmth he was in 
with continual toasting healths to the Royal Family, his 
Lordship grew a little too fond of his Majesty, and entered 
into a familiarity not altogether graceful in so public a place. 
The King understood very well how to extricate himself in 
all such difficulties, and, with a hint to the company to avoid 
ceremony, stole off, and made towards his coach, which stood 
ready for him in Guildhall-yard. But the Mayor liked his 
company so well, and was grown so intimate, that he pursued 
him hastily, and, catching him fast by the hand, cried out, 
with a vehement oath and accent : ' Sir, you shall stay and 
take t'other bottle.' 

" The airy monarch looked kindly at him over his shoulder, 
and with a smile and graceful air repeated this line of the old 
song: 

* He that's drunk is as great as a King,* 

and immediately returned back and complied with his host's 
invitation." 

Sir Robert set up a statue of Charles the Second in the Stocks 
Market. It was taken down in May, 1779, and presented 
by the City to Robert Vyner, Esq., the legal representative 
of the loyal, ingenious and convivial Lord Mayor. 

Pepys mentions Sir Robert Viner several times in his 
Diary. I give the following few extracts therefrom, as bear- 
ing upon the goldsmiths* trade. 

On the 30th September, 1665, Pepys writes : — " Thence to 
the office, and thence to Captain Cocke's, where I find Mr. 
Temple, the fat blade. Sir Robert Viner^s chief man." 

This Mr. Temple afterwards set up himself as a goldsmith 
in Lombard Street. See Little London Directory of 1677, 
and under the head of Temple in this worlc 



LONDON BANKERS. 13S 

On 19th October, 1666, Pepys records that "Viner, too, 
and Bakewell were sent for this afternoon ; and was before 
the King and his Cabinet about money." 

In Herbert's History of the Goldsmiths' Company, under 
date Wednesday, nth December, 1666, we read : — " Mr. War- 
den made known that he had delivered to Sir Robert Vyner 
a bag with some of the standard pieces, and some molten 
silver, sealed, both which belonged to the Company." 

On the 17th May, i667^Pepys writes : — "To Sir R. Viner's, 
with 600 pieces of gold to turn into silver, for the enabling 
me to answer Sir G. Carteret's ;^3,ooo.*' 

And again on 17 th June, 1667, Pepys records his fears 
" That the bankers are broke as to ready money, though 
Viner had ;£"! 00,000 by him when our trouble began : that 
he and the Duke of Albemarle have received into their own 
hands, of Viner, the former ;£"io,ooo, and the latter ;^i 2,000, 
in tallies or assignments, to secure what was in his hands of 
theirs ; and many other great men of our masters have done 
the like." 

By that memorable closing of the Exchequer on 2nd 
January, 1672, Sir Robert Vyner lost the sum of ;^4i6,724 
13s. i^d. ; in consideration of which he was awarded 
>^2 5,003 9s. 4d. per annum out of the Excise ; and cus- 
tomers were commanded in the meantime not to sue him. 
Whether the same injunction applied generally to the protec- 
tion of all the goldsmiths who were similarly robbed, I have 
no means of ascertaining. 

Sir Robert Viner had a black boy, who died of consump- 
tion. He had his body embalmed and kept in a box at his 
seat, Swakeley House, Middlesex. Pepys mentions having 
seen it (Diary, 8th September, 1665). 

Vyner, Sir Thomas, 

Was a goldsmith of Lombard Street, and Lord Mayor in 
1654. 

He left ;£^2oo to the Goldsmiths' Company, to pay," for 
ever," to seven poor men of the Company who were, or had 
been, dwellers in or near Lombard Street, severally 3 os. half- 
yearly, at the discretion of the wardens, and to the Company's 
clerk every half-year, 6s. 

During his Mayoralty he was knighted by Cromwell, and 
created a baronet in 1660. He died on nth May, 1665,

Street 

Walpole, Clarke and Sisson. 

This business was established at the comer of Clement's 
Lane, in Lombard Street, in 1738, by Robert Surman ; and 
the Directory of 1740 discloses fiiat at that date he still had 
the sole control of the bank. 

The list of 1754 shows that the style of his firm in that 
year was Surman, Dinely and Cliffe. In 1756 it was Surman 
and Cliffe, and in 1759 the style changed again, becoming 
Cliffe, Walpole and Clarke. This continued until 1 769, when 
Cliffe's name vanishes, and Walpole and Clarke take in a new 
partner of the name of Bourne ; thus, in 1770, the firm was 
Walpole, Clarke and Bourne, located at 28, Lombard Street In 
1776 they assumed a fresh partner of the name of Mr. Potts ; 
and in 1789 another Mr. Clarke took the place of Mr. Potts, 
when the firm became Walpole, Clarke, Walpoles and Clarke. 
The next change was in 1794, when the firm was Walpole, 
Walpole, Clarke and Sissons. That continued to be the 
style imtil 1798, when it was altered to Walpole, Clarke and 
Sissons, the designation enduring until the firm came to an 
end in 1808. 

Walwyn and Co., 1793—1800. (See Strange.) 

Wanley, John, and Co. 

Were London bankers (but where I cannot ascertain) about 
the year 17 15. In the following year the st}'le of the firm 
was George Wanley and Craetocke, and that continued until 
1 7 18, after which date they cannot be traced. 

Wealstead, Robert, 

In Alderman Backwell's ledgers of 1663, is described as a 
goldsmith. In the list of goldsmiths who lost money by the 
closing of the Exchequer in January, 1672, appears the name 
of Robert Welsted (sic). His claim was for £, 1 1,307 1 2s. id. 
and the amount he received per annum was;^678 9s. 

Welby, Brothers,

They were established about 1825, and were formerly in 
Soho. 

They are now doing the same kind of business the old 
goldsmiths did in the reign of Charles the Second, minus the 
pawnbroking^

which he was awarded 6 per cent, interest, amounting to 
;£'i4,93i 19s. 4d. per annum. , 

Whitehead and Co. 

This business was started about 1784 at 5, Basinghall 
Street, by John and George Whitehead. In 1791 John 
Whitehead, junior, was admitted into the firm. In 1 795 John 
Whitehead, the senior partner, retired, and in the following 
year it consisted of George and John Whitehead. In 1797 
the style of the firm became Whitehead and Howard, and 
the next year they moved to 24, Cateaton Street* 

In 1804 they assumed a partner of the name of Haddock. 
Whitehead, Howard and Haddock failed about 1815. 

Whitmore's. 

This banking-house was started at 24, Lombard Street, 
about 1774, by William Fuller and Son. In 1799 the style 

* The street was renamed Gresham Street in 1845 — very improperly, 
Cunningham says. "Catte Street, corruptly called Catteten Street, 
beginneth at the north end of Ironmonger Lane, and runneth to the west- 
end of St Lawrence Church." — Stow, p. 102. 



138 A HANDBOOK OF 

of the firm was Fuller and Chatteris, which it continued to be 
until 1808, when it became Chatteris, Yapp and Co. ; and 
in 181 2 it was Chatteris, Whitmore and Co. In 182 1 it finally 
changed to Whitmore, Wells and Whitmore ; which firm con- 
tinued until 1 84 1, when they failed. 

Wickenden and Co., 1775—85. (See Kensingtons.) 

Wilkes, Dickenson and Go's. 

Business was established at 33, Poultry, in 1790, under the 
style of Peeles, Wilkes, Dickensons and Goodall. In 1793 
the firm became Wilkes, Dickensons, Goodall and Fisher. 
In 1 80 J the name of Fisher disappears, and that of Dicken- 
son is substituted. 

This firm came to an end in 1805. 

Wilkinson and Co., 1796 — 1804. (See Bloxham^) 
Willaume. 

A goldsmith having ranning cashes at the Golden Ball 
in St. James' Street, between 1686 and 1716. He was 
one of the Protestants who fled from Metz after the Revoca- 
tion of the Edict of Nantes declared on October 24, 1685. 

WiUiams, Deacon, and Co. 

I have been unable to trace this banking-house further 
back than the year 1771, when they appear in the London 
Directory under the style of Raymond, Williams, Vere, Lowe 
and Fletcher, transacting business at 81, Comhill. Five 
years later they moved to No. 22, Birchin Lane, and, in 
the next year, to No. 20, Birchin Lane, the site they now 
occupy. In 1778 Sir Charles Raymond, Bart., retired firom 
the firm, and established another bank at George Street, 
Mansion House, under the style of Raymond, Harley, 
Webber and Co. In 1781 it became Raymond, Harley, 
Lloyd and Cameron. The last seen of this firm was in 1 789, 
when it was Thomas Harley, Cameron and Son. Mr. Fletcher 
likewise retired, and the style in 1779 became Lowe, Vere, 
Williams and Jennings, the latter name occuring only in that 
year. In 1786 the firm consisted of Vere and Williams only. 
They, however, took in some partners during the next year, 
as in 1 788 their style became Vere, Williams, Son, Wilkinson 
' and Drury. In 1790 Williams became head partner, and in 



LONDON BANKERS. 139 

1793 the name of Wilkinson is no longer seen, the style of 
the firm in that year being Williams, Son and Drury. In 
1799 the name of Moffat is introduced; and in 1801 an 
additional partner, named Burgess, was admitted. In 1810 
the name of Drury disappears, whereupon the style of the 
firm became Williams, Son, Moffat and Burgess. Between 
1 8 14 and 1818 their style was Williams, Son, Moffat, Burgess 
and Lane. The year following, the names of Moffat and 
Lane drop out, the firm consisting of Williams, Williams and 
Burgess. From 1824 to 1827 it was Williams, Burgess and 
Williams ; in 1828 Williams, Deacon, Labouchere and Co. ; 
. and in 1842 it became Williams, Deacon, Labouchere, 
Thornton and Co., which has been the style of the firm ever 
since. 

It now consists of the following partners : — 

Henry Sykes Thornton. 

Robert Williams. 

John Deacon. 

Alexander, Viscount Kirkaldie. 

William Samuel Deacon. 

Willis> Fercival and Co. 

This firm is descended from a goldsmith of the name of 
Thomas Williams, who, according to the Little London 
Directory of 1677, was keeping running cashes at the Crown 
in Lumbard Street, which house has since been numbered 
76. The next item that can be ascertained about this house 
is that in 1708 it was conducted by Messrs. Tudman and 
Child, whose names we find upon some of Messrs. Child and 
Co's. cash-notes, witnessed by Thomas Greene, who sub- 
sequently was admitted into the firm. From the same source 
I find the firm in 17 13 was Messrs. Stephen Child (a son of 
Sir Francis Child), Thomas Greene and Mathias Fades. In 
17 18 Mr. Child appears to have resigned, as the firm was 
then Greene and Fades. In 1735 it was Greene and Tysoe. 
In 1 741 their signature was witnessed by W. Willis. In 
1752 the style became Tysoe, Willis and Reade; in 1755 
Willis and Reade ; in 1774 Reade, Moorhouse and Co.; 
in 1778 Moorhouse, WilHs and Reade ; in 1787 Willis, Wood 
and Co. ; in 1792 Willis, Wood, Percival and Co. ; and in 
1 8 14 it became Willis, Percival and Co., which has been the 
' style of the firm ever since. 



I40 A HANDBOOK OF 

They have always cleared for Messrs. Chfld and Co., and 
many of the clerks of the latter firm have been taken fix)m 
this bank. 

The firm now consists of the following partners : — 

Henry Willis. 
Samuel Tomkins. 
Samuel Leith Tomkins. 
Henry Willis, junr. 

Wood, Thomas, 

Goldsmith, Sheriff of London in 1491. He built Gold- 
smith's Row in Cheapside, which was then considered to be 
a magnificent series of houses, between Bread Street end and 
the Cross in Cheap. He was an especial benefactor to the 
Church of St. Peter-in-Cheap. 

Stow says : " His predecessors might be the first builders, 
owners and namers of this street." 

In the Great Fire of 1666 these houses were all destroyed, 
and the goldsmiths thereafter settled in Lombard Street. 

Wright and Co. 

Many will remember very well the banking-house of Messrs. 
Wright and Co. It originated in a goldsmith's business 
carried on by Mr. Richard Wright as early as the year 17 12, 
and possibly much earlier. On a draft dated 1729 I have 
seen the following endorsement : — " To be paid only to Mr. 
Anthony Wright, goldsmith, Great Russell Street, Covent 
Garden. Witness for Anthony Wright, H. Gyles." 

Another is addressed in 1754 to "Anthony Wright, Esq., 
at y* Golden Cup, Common Garden (sic)^ London." 

When Anthony Wright moved from Great Russell Street 
to y* Golden Cup in Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, is im- 
known ; but he appears to have turned his attention rather 
to banking than to gold-smitherie. In the year 1759 his 
name first appears amongst the London Bankers. 

In 1775 he took his son into partnership ; and in 1785 the 
style of the firm became Anthony, Francis and Thomas 
Wright. In the course of that year Anthony Wright most 
probably died, as in 1786 the firm was Francis and Thomas 
Wright. In the following year Francis Wright retired fi:om 
the bank, and Thomas Wright took into partnership Messrs. 
Selby and Robinson ; the style becoming Wright, Selby, and 



Z ONDON BANKERS. 141 

Robinson. In 1816 it was Wright, Wright, Wright, Selby 
and Robinson. This house was known as Wrights and Co. 
until 1 841, when it failed ; and the Commercial Bank 
of London opened a branch on the premises ; which con- 
tinued until t86i, when the bank stopped payment. The 
following year the London and County Bank opened a branch 
in James Street, Covent Garden, in hopes of obtaining some 
of the old business ; and finding it successful, in 1864 they 
took possession of the old premises, 5, Henrietta Street, 
formerly the Golden Cup, where they have carried on their 
operations to the present time. 

Young and Son. 

The firm of Young and Young was started in 1795 at 37, 
in the Borough, by Messrs. Weston, Pinhom, Goldipg, Mew- 
some and Weston. Sir John Pinhorn severed his connection 
with Messrs. Wilkinson and Co. to join Mr. Weston in form- 
ing this new bank. In 1808 the name of Golding does not 
appear. The style of the firm otherwise continued unaltered 
until 18 1 7, when the Directory discloses that it had become 
Weston, Pinhom and Weston. 

From 1 81 8 to 1824 the firm was Sir John Pinhom, Weston 
and Son. In the following year it became Weston, Young and 
Bostock. In 1 83 1 the name of Bostock disappears from the 
list ; and that of Weston in 1847, when their style became C. 
A. Young and Young junior. In consequence, it is said, of the 
death of his son, Mr. Young in 1849 relinquished the business; 
which was taken by the London and Westminster Bank, who 
opened a branch there. This was the first private bank that 
was absorbed by a joint stock bank.

DOCUMENT. 

To Her Majesty and the Council of State of the 
Kingdom of England '. 

Representeth, in all humility, Christopher Hagen- 
buch [for himself] and partners, that he hath found 
out a method and form, in which it will be possible 
to institute an office, as well in this kingdom as in 
all other kingdoms and states, into which shall enter 
every year a very large sum of money without ex- 
pense to your Majesty or your Majesty's dominions 
or subjects, as by the result shall be made known 
and shall increase so much in a very short time, 
that not only your Majesty will be able to be always 
provided with whatever notable sum of money your 
Majesty may wish, but, by this means, your state

and people also ; and it shall, keep the country in 
abundance and remove the extreme usuries which 
devour your Majesty and your people. So this 
shall be a great satisfaction and useful to all. The 
petitioner desireth to make manifest, at a time 
chosen by your Majesty, such invention of his as 
instituted by his industry and means : on condi- 
tion, that your Majesty and Council of State grant 
six per cent, every year of the whole mass of money 
that shall come into such office for the term of 20 
years to the petitioner, partners, and their suc- 
cessors; and that they shall be assured of such 
profit in the said office during such term as shall be 
given by your Majesty and Council of State, and 
that the same shall be without fraud or contradic- 
tion, or, so as it shall please your Majesty, lawful 
and honourable in conformity with so useful a pro- 
position. 

So he prayeth your Majesty to graciously com- 
mand that to this his proposition direction may be 
given in the margin hereof; and, this done and the 
privileges thereupon fulfilled, the petitioner will be 
ready to declare his intention. 

Her Majesty promises, as soon as the institution 
of the office may be found useful for Her jMajesty 
and Her subjects by the judgment of such of Her 
Council as shall be by Her deputed to confer with 
him on this business, to grant to the said Christo- 
pher and partners four per cent for a term of 20 
years, and to confirm the said grant under the Great 
Seal. 

Fra : Wal.* 

N.B. — It does not seem Her Majesty or Council 
gave this any further consideration, as no Letters 
Patent or Sign Bill under privy seal, or further 
entry in state papers can I find.

lance of trade 6- soe the more Comodities that the 
stranger brings in hee must of necessitie make the 
greater employment in o' natiue Comodetyes. 

Besides the inconvenyenc of exportinge mony 
w'^^lesseneth the treasure of the Kingdome, Wee Com- 
playne that the mony within the Kingdome at this 
tyme (althoughe noe more were exported) is not 
sufficient to dryue the trade of the Kingdome. 

2. This inconvenyenc wilbee much holpen & 
the trade of the kingdome much enlarged, and the 
King's Customes much increased yf assignacon of 
debts were made legall & appointed to bee doune 
in this bancke & there registred as it is usuall in 
all ptes of Christendome thoughe not in this forme, 
And this Course of a bancke would exceedingly 
aduance trade for a man may by this meanes doe 
more w*^ loo" then now hee Canne w*"* looo". 

The Kinge needes not erect a Bancke otherwise 
then in this manner, to Comaund all payments of 
mony to bee made at a Certayne place, w'**will 
worke the same effect, the name of a bancke not 
being soe pleasing and moste men doe usually make 
all their payments at a publicq place as the Temple 
etc. 

3. Yf it bee obiected that this wilbee a means to 
discouer mens estates w'^^ els mighte subsist being 
weake, the awnswere is, it will not discouer any 
estate but mony & trade only, w*"^ is now more dis- 
couered by the entryes of all goods made in the 
Custom house, & monyes registred in every Scrive- 
no's ; whereby many tymes they fall short & lose 
much mony. 

Yt is a good meanes to prevent hanckerucptSy w** 
is a benefitt for the Comon wealth that men whoe 
deserue Creditt may bee supported, and such as 
deserue noe Creditt maie not secretly Cosen others 
of greate somes of mony to their utter undoinge. 

4. Yf it bee obiected that a Ritche man maye 
bee thus discouered & his mony in the bancke 
taken awaye, that will make him employ his mony 
one waye or other for the Comon good & would 
thereby quicken trade ; but to what purpose should

the kinge take awaye the monye for heeCan make les 
use of yt by takinge yt awaye, then by leavingty there. 

5. Yf the trouble be obiected, that is noe sound 
obiection for one man may dispatch more by this 
Course in one Daye then otherwise in 20 Dayes & in 
every shere more or lesse there must bee places w*^*" 
must correspond w*** London, and yf the payer will \ 
yt may bee put to a greater some as XX" or 
XXV", and a litle trouble oughte not to bee re- 
spected in reguard of the great good yt will bringe 
for yt shall secure y*" payer yf y t bee there entred \ 
And noe man shalbee Compelled to leave mony in 
the bancke, but yf it bee reed there, in the same 
instant hee maye either paie yt over to another or 
Carrye yt awaye with him. 

6. The Kinge as well as others to receaue & pay 
his mony at y* places yet to bee soe ordered that 
y* Records of the exchecker bee not altered. 

7. This Course will make noe disturbance of 
trade thowghe a greate some of monie were upon a 
sodayne to be aduanced to the Kinge for any psent 
service. Whereas now the gatheringe togeather of a 
masse of mony in a heape makes a stop of trade till 
it bee dispersed againe, In this Course that incon- 
venyenc wil bee avoided for the mony will euer bee 
in employm* for the generall negotiation of the state. 

8. A Cowncell of trade as well as a Cowncell of 

Warre is fitt to bee established to gouerne this as Ap. Jan., 
well as other ptes of Trade. 1621. 

9. The Kinge is many times forced to take up 
his owne monyes of his ffarm's of his Customes by 
waye of anticipation, for w''' he alloweth interest to 
a rounde some yearly, w*''' may bee prevented in this 
course. 

10. The Kinge is to send monyes beyond the seas 
sometymes by waye of exchange to great losse w*'^ 
maye hereby be preuented.

A MEANS LAYD DOWNE FOR THE INLARGING 

OF TRADE. 

Experience shewes that Trade cann not be 
liberally maynteyned both at holme & abroad but 
by credite, as well as by mony : & by a fitt way to 
make use of both when ther is need of it. 

ffor want wherof it comes often to pass, that a 
murcht of good worth ; uppo some suddeyne losse 
at sea, or by ill dettors ; or uppo a suddeyn press- 
ing of his credito" is driven into great stress, his 
owne monye being dispsed abroad, & not readily 
to be called in to seme ther owne termes. 

This may be holpen, if by commd, or by a Volun- 
tary consent a Bank may be raised, in this plain, 
easye, & clere way. 
And for Ther shall be one certeyn place appointed, in & 
oth' places about Londo wher all payments, of 20" & aboue 
thatbeare shall be made, & only an entry made ther of the 
correspond- payment. 

w''' Londo ^^^^ shall be pformed by a Commission, wherin 
20, 30, or 40 principall marchts of men of quality 
shall be trusted. 

They which receaue ther mony at the Bank shalbe 
at ther owne libertye, eath' to carry it away, or to 
leaue it ther for ther owne use at ther need ; If they 
leaue it ther they shall by way of assignation pay it 
over, only by entring it in the Bank, which shall 
goe as an actuall payment, & soe a 100" may be as- 
signed fro ma to man to serue for payment of tenn 
seuerall. 100'*"'* or more ; 

Whilst the mony lyes in the bank, the own' shall 

Sic have a certeyn allowance of 4'* p cent & soe & rata 

origl. temporis : & soe noe pt of his stock shall lye dead. 

And when his occasion requires, he shall take it out, 

or assigne it, to supply his turn eath' in money or 

credite.* 

* In the original document this is marked through, thus — 




STATE PAPERS. 151 

The examples of oth' states might teach us the 
use of this Bank, especially of the Venetians & 
other places in Italye. 

Here eath' must reason, or experience overrule 

To make a introduction to the busines, 

If the King be pleased, that his monye receaued 
for his customes, be all .payd then 

If the King comnd, that all mony payd by way 
of interest shall be payd in ye Bank. 

If the mony payd uppo bills of eschaung, be all 
payd ther to giue credite to the payment. 

If some principall marchts, who understand the 
use of the Bank will pay & receaue ther. 

Thei will soon be a bank raised, & by ther ex- 
ample, the use of it will be soe great & soe com- 
modious for trades that all others will foUowe wil- 
lingly for ther owne good. 

Inconvenience ther cann be none, for euery ma 
shall be as absolute owne of his owner as nowe. 

He shall have as psent use of it, as if it were in 
his ovne chest. 

it shall neue' lye merely idle. Sic* 

His estate shall not be discouered more then, at 
this time nor soe much. 

Bu: the benefits which will follow theron will be 
infinite for the inlarging of trade, for noe man cann 
perish in his credite, who hath eath' mony or detts 
owing. 

Noe man shall want the use of his owne at his need. 

One hundred in the bank, by assignation will 
extend as farr in trade as a 1000'^ nowe the ease 
will be incredible, when many meet togeath', & w'^ 
one lyne only entred in the Register of the Bank, 
cann pay a great sum. 

The charg shall be nothing, for ther shall be re- 
quired for an assignation but i'*And for numbing 
only for the bearing of the charg of attendaunc. sic* 

The daunger cann be none for thos Commis- 
sioners who shall be trusted shall be awnswerable 
for the mony they receaue into the Bank. 

The East Indy company maybe continued by this.

APPENDIX. 



Backwell; Alderman Edward. 

The following official letter, or command, which I derive 
through Mr. T. C. Noble from the State papers in the Record 
Office (Entry Book, No. 23, Domestic Series, Charles II., p. 
228), will serve to substantiate the view I have expressed of 
the high position of Alderman Backwell as a banker in this 
reign : — 

" Whereas, it have humbly been represented unto us, in 
favour of Aid"' Backwell, that by the late calamity of the fire 
hapened in our Citty of London, he is become destitute of a 
house or fitt abode for y« management of his affaires. And 
we, taking into our Princely consideracon the greatest im- 
portance it is of, as well to y* publicke, as more immediately 
to our owne service, to have him accomodated with a con- 
venient place for y* dispatch and carrying on his businesse, 
wee have thought fitt hereby to signify our pleasure to y", 
and very effectually to recommend it to y^, to accomodate 
y* s** Aid" Backwell w**" s** lodgings in Gresham Colledge, are 
in y' power and possession, it being in order to our owne 
service and y* better conveniency of our aflfaires in his landes, 
in w**" if y' shall happen to be questioned or interrupted. Our 
pleasure is that you forthwith give notice thereof to one 
of our Principal Sect^" of State, to the end wee may give 
further orders therein. And, &^' Sept. y* 10, 1666. 

" By his Mat*** command, 

"Arlington. 
" To our trusty & 
well-beloved 

« Dr. Jonathan Goddard." ,

338 APPENDIX. 

On the 30th December, 1668, the Great Fire Commis- 
sioners certified that Edward Backwell was to rebuild the 
premises destroyed in the fire — " All that were shopp at the 
south end of the new alley, called Exchange Alley, next 
Lombard Street, in the parish of St. Mary Woolnoth " — 
having a frontage of twenty-six feet to Lombard Street, thirty- 
six feet in the rear, and a depth of sixty feet. The lease was 
enlarged by an additional term of forty years, and the rent 
was fixed at;£7o. The lease of the premises was formerly 
held by Charles Everard, goldsmith, in 1662 ; next by John 
Wasson, goldsmith ; and in August, 1666, by Joseph Hornby, 
who transferred it to Backwell. 

On the i2th November, 1697, there was an agreement 
made between John and Richard Backwell of the one part, 
and Sir Edward Turner and five others creditors of Edward 
Backwell (father of the said John and Richard), deceased, of 
the other part, by which the said J. and R. Backwell coven- 
anted, within six months after the commission of bankruptcy 
awarded against Edward Backwell had been superseded, to 
pay;£'2i I OS. percent, (in ready money) of each principal 
creditor's debt, and to assign over to them out of the said 
Edward Backwell's patent for perpetual interest at 6 per cent, 
per annum on the hereditary revenue of excise, the remain- 
ing ;^78 I OS. of the principal, together with interest, &c., to 
the 24th June, 1682. Another agreement, dated March 
1 6th, 1697-8, secured the latter payment of the said in- 
terest. 

I am indebted to Mr. T. C. Noble for the following in- 
formation : — 

In the Record Office there is a petition from John Peart and 
Philip Bell, stating that on the proclamation of August, 1660, 
they sued John and Edward Backwell before the commis- 
sioners in the Savoy, for defrauding and concealing vast 
sums from his Majesty; but the latter, to prevent proceed- 
ings, imprisoned Peart upon a false plea of debt, and offered 
Bell ;£^3oo to forbear to assist him, whereby the said frauds 
were pardoned. They, therefore, beg an order that the said 
Backwells pay them for their six years' prosecution (to 
December, 1666) and self-defence. Peart, it was alleged, 
could prove that ;^ 40, 000 a year of the Crown lands were 
detained and unlawfully concealed. 



APPENDIX, 339 

Bank of England. 

In the early days of the Bank, people were permitted to 
demand only part of the value of a bank-note, the clerk en- 
dorsing upon it the amount that had been paid on account. 
This plan was adopted by many, who received instalments 
until the whole amount due on the notes they held was 
absorbed. It was also frequently adopted by those who 
held Child and Co/s notes. It may therefore be surmised 
that it was a common practice with bankers generally. 

Hoares. 

Mr. T. C. Noble supplies me with the following note : — 
In the original design for the erection of the Bath Hospital, 
1737-8, a copy of which now hangs on the walls of the chief 
room there, ;^6,ooo is asked for ; and " any persons inclined 
to encourage this undertaking, are desired to send their con- 
tributions to Richard Nash, Esq., Francis Sanguier, Esq., 
and Dr. Oliver, at Bath ; or Mr. Benjamin Hoare, banker, at 
the Golden Bottle, in Fleet Street, London." Prince Hoare 
left the hospital a legacy of ;^6oo ; and William Hoare, the 
Royal Academician, painted the portraits of its patrons. 
Henry Hoare was president, 1776. 

It was at a meeting at the Saint Dunstan's Coffee House, 
Fleet Street, on January 13th, 1715, that Henry Hoare, Esq., 
the banker, suggested the foundation of the Westminster 
Hospital, Charles Hoare acting as treasurer. 

Madding. 

A goldsmith, who, in 17 18, kept the Golden Bottle in 
Cheapside, which was, I presume, the tenement then recently 
vacated by Messrs. Hoare. 

Martin and Co. 

Under this head I have stated that Buncombe was Lord 
Shaftesbury's banker. I should have said friend. 

The reference to Sir Charles Buncombe in the foot-note 
to Burnetts " History of His Own Time " (Oxford edition) 
was, I believe, intended for Sir John Buncombe, who, in 
1664, was Master of the Ordnance, and in 1667 was created 
a Privy Councillor and a Commissioner of the Treasury ; 
which circumstance fully accounts for his being in possession 

22 — 2 



340 APPENDIX. 

of the secret Sir Charles Buncombe, the banker, was not 
knighted before 1701. He was originally a clerk to Alder- 
man Edward Backwell. This fact is clearly attested by 
documents I have seen, in the Alderman's handwriting, 
addressed to him. The following is a copy of one : — 

"The i2«> Aprill, 1671. 
" Charles Buncombe, 

'* Pay unto M'* Phil. Marsh, or the Bearer, four 
hundred— eighty-nine pounds, and place it to the debt of 
M'- William Batalhey : this by ord' of 

" Your master, 
" Edward Backwell," 



When Backwell failed, in January, 1672, I am of opinion 
that Charles Buncombe started on his own account, at the 
Grasshopper, as a goldsmith and banker, and that he carried 
on as much of Backwell's business as he was able to save 
from going elsewhere. A great deal was transferred to 
Blanchard and Child, and more followed thither upon the 
retirement of Sir Charles Buncombe, who likewise then kept 
his private account at Child's. 

Otto 

Was one of the earliest goldsmiths of whom we have any 
record. The name occurs in Boomsday Book as of one 
holding lands in Essex and Suffolk ; and there appear to 
have been several successors to the office of engravers to the 
Mint of the same name — Otto the elder, in the reign of 
William I. or II., Otto the younger and William Fitz Otto 
in that of Henry I., and William Fitz Otto in that of John. 

Ruding (in his " Annals of the Coinage ") esteems it as 
probable that the first was the father of Otto the younger, to 
whom Henry I., in the early part of his reign, restored the 
Mystery of the Bies which his father had held, together with 
all other his offices and certain lands. These were subse- 
quently confirmed to William Fitz Otto, goldsmith. 

In the sixth year of John, states the same authority, Wil- 
liam Fitz Otho was commanded by writ to make the dies 
for the Royal and Episcopal Mints at Chichester ; and in 
the twenty-seventh of Henry III., he presented before the 



APPENDIX. 341 

Barons of the Exchequer Richard Abel, goldsmith, to be 
maker and cutter of the money dies. 

In the forty-ninth of Henry III., Thomas Fitz Otho 
claimed, in the Court of Exchequer, the broken dies, as 
belonging to him of inheritance, and had his claim allowed ; 
and three years thereafter he presented before the Barons 
Ralph le Blund to the office of Cutter of the King's Dies. 

Ruding has a large mass of information concerning the 
Ottos ; but I am inclined to think I have quoted sufficient to 
prove that he was a goldsmith of some importance in his day. 

Fargiter, John. 

A famous goldsmith of Fleet Street, who seems to have filled 
the first of the many parish offices of St. Dunstan's, in 1636. 
When the Great Plague broke out, he removed his family to 
Kensington, where two of his sons died, and were buried in 
August of that year. His premises in Fleet Street, which 
were situated next door but one to Serjeant's Inn Gate, were 
destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, and not rebuilt until 
three years after. One of his sons opened a shop in St. 
Clement's parish, whence he was buried, in 1688. 

For the above information I am indebed to Mr.T. C. Noble. 

In Mr. Bright's recent edition of Pepys' Diary, under date 
2ist October, 1661, occurs the following characteristic esti- 
mate of this goldsmith : — 

" Early with Mr. Moore by coach to Chelsy, to my Lord 
Privy Scale's ; but have missed of coming time enough, and 
having taken up Mr. Pargiter, the goldsmith, who is the man 
of the world I do most know, and believe to be a cheating 
rogue." 

Pinkney. 

From the edition of Pepys recently edited by the Rev. 
Mynors Bright, I take the following note, under the date ist 
December, 1660 : — 

" Mr. Shepley and I went into London, and calling upon 
Mr. Pinkney, the goldsmith, he took us to the taverne, and 
gave us a pint of wine." 

Pole and Co. 

Forty-four country banks were connected with this firm. 



342 . APPENDIX. 

The National Penny Bank (Limited). 

This institution, established for the purpose of receiving 
sums ranging from one penny to any superior amount, upon 
which it gives three per cent interest, is under distinguished 
patronage. The Edgware Road Branch was opened on 9th 
October, 1875. 

Bobinson, Bichard. 

From Ruding I take the annexed passage : — 
"In 1577 the oflfences of counterfeiting and diminishing 
the coins still continued to be practised, notwithstanding the 
precautions which had been taken to prevent them ; for in 
this year Richard Robinson, goldsmith, was drawn from the 
Tower of London to Tybome, and there hanged, for clipping 
of gold." 

Viner, Thomas (and others). 

It is recorded by Ruding that, on the 20th December^ 
1649, Lord Commissioner Whitelock reported from the 
Council of State that in pursuance of an order of Parliament 
of the 1 6 th of November, for the making of standard pieces 
of gold and silver, a jury of goldsmiths appeared before the 
Council, and were sworn for the making thereof :■ — 

Sir John Wollaston, Knight and Alderman. 

Thomas Viner, Alderman. 

Thomas Noell, Alderman. 

Francis Ash. 

Thomas Smithies. 

Francis Hall. 

George Courthop. 

John Perryn. 

Richard MorrelJ. 

Samuel Moore. 

George Snell. 

Richard Gibbes. 

Matthew Mason. 

Alexander Jackson. 

The above list gives an earlier date for the establishment 
of the trade of Thomas Viner and of George Snell than I 
had before mentioned. 



APPENDIX. 343 

Violet, Thomas (circa 1634—60), 

Was the grandson of Rafell Violet, born in Antwerp, and 
mentioned in the Visitation of London, 1634. Charles I. 
entrusted him with various commissions of enquiry, &c., and 
wrote him several letters ; in one of which, dated Oxford, 
19th November, 1643, after thanking him for his services, 
the king promises to pay him for them " when God shall 
enable us." He was also entrusted by Charles with a letter 
of peace to the city, which was received in Commonhall, on 
6th January, 1643 — 4, and resulted in its being "frustrated, 
made voyd, and contemned," and in Violet being sent to 
the Tower! In 1660 he petitioned Charles II. for redress, 
and published in 1660 a quarto tract, now scarce and curious, 
entitled, " An Appeal to Caesar, wherein Gold and Silver is 
proved to be the King's Majesties' Royal Commodity, &c." 

On i>age 20 we read: — "All the world knows the whole 
stock of the money of the Kingdom is to be disposed of by 
the credit of the City of London ; the City of London gives 
the vote to the kingdom, and the merchants of London, for 
credit upon money, rules the city." 

On page 2 2 : — " The merchants of London have trans- 
ported all the gold and most of the silver out of England, 
principally by the confederation and assistance of the gold- 
smiths in Lombard Street, who are just in the nature of the 
bankers at Amsterdam, and the goldsmith is your merchant's 
jacall, as the jacall is to the lion — they hunt for the lion's 
prey. The goldsmiths lay up gold and silver for the mer- 
chants to transport, some goldsmiths in Lombard Street 
keeping at this day many great merchants of London cashes 
and some noblemen's cash ; by this credit of several men's 
monies, the goldsmiths in Lombard Street are in the nature 
of bankers, and have a great stock of treasure by them 
alwayes of gold, forraign coines, and silver." 

And on page 23 : — "The goldsmiths goe between the Mint 
and the merchants that transport gold and silver, and outbids 
the Mint a id., and sometimes 2d. and more, the ounce in 
silver, and 5 s. the ounce in gold at this day ; and so catch 
up all the gold and silver to transport, being factors and pur- 
veyors to the merchant that transports gold and silver." 

[For the above excerpts I am indebted to Mr. T. C. 
Noble.] 



344 APPENDIX. 

The following entry I extract from Ruding's " Annals of 
the Coinage," under date 1639 — 40 : — 

" About this time the House of Commons appears to have 
directed its attention to the evils which w^re occasioned by 
the exportation of gold, the consideration of which was, on 
the 1 8th of March, referred to a committee ; and Thomas 
Violet, of London, goldsmith, one who followed that busi- 
ness, was ordered to attend from time to time, and to have 
the privilege of the House freely to come and go, without 
the molestation of any during the dependance of that busi- 
ness, unless, upon any complaint against him to the House, 
it should be otherwise ordered." — Commons J^ourtials, vol. 
ii., p. 106. 

Vjnier, Thomas. 

In his Table of English Silver and Gold Coins, Folkes (as 
quoted by Ruding) deposes : — 

"On the 6th December, 1651, Sir Thomas Vyner, Knt. 
and Bart., Francis Meynell, Esq., the Sheriff of London, and 
Edward Backwell, Esq., contracted with his Majesty to take 
in by tale, and to coin with all convenient expedition, at 
their own charge, into English current monies, the coins 
which were called Crown and Harp monies ; receiving for 
the same a consideration of ;^5 los. for every jQioo in tale, 
in lieu of want of weight and expense of coinage. Upon 
which there was accordingly re-coined, of the said monies, 
the sum of ;^5oo,ooo in tale." 

For this statement no authority is given. The transaction, 
as Ruding observes, is very extraordinary on every account, 
and the date not quite two months after Charles's escape 
into France, subsequent to the battle of Worcester. 

Williams, John, 

Lived in the reign of James I., and was styled the King's 
Goldsmith.

as a permanent record of each year's Exhibition, 

The Second Number of ** Academy Notes'** will be published almost 
simultaneously with the Opening of the Academy, and will contain. 
Sketches of the Principal Pictures exhibited. 

Many Artists having arranged to make their own Sketches of Pictures, 
it has been arranged to engrave these infacsimile^ which will considerably

" There does certainly exist a wide-spread desire to know, so far as can be known, 
the extent of God's living, responsible creation. The planet which we inhabit is but 
one vessel in the midst of a fleet sailing on through the vast ocean of space, under 
convoy of the sun. Far on the distant horizon what seem to be a great many other 
convoy ships appear, though such is their remoteness that even our best glasses 
enable us to know very little reg^utiing them. But in the vessels of the same group 
as ourselves, we see evolutions similar to those which our own ship performs — we 
see them maintain relations similar to our own to the great guardian vessel in the 
midst — we see them regulated by her in all their movements, and that when nieht 
fiUls dark most of them have their sets of lanterns hoisted up to give them light ; 
and there is a desire among us to know somewhat respecting the crews of uese 
neighbouring vessels of ours, and whether — as we all seem bound on a common 
voyage— the expedition, as it is evidently under one and the same control, may not 
have a common purpose or object to accomplish." — Hugh Miller.

"The style of Bunyan is delightful to every reader, and invaluable as a studyto 
every person who wishes to obuin a wide command over the English language. The 
vocabulary is the vocabulary of the common people. There is not an expression, if 
we except a few technical terms of theology, which would puzzle the rudest peasant. 
Yet no writer has said more exactly what he meant to say. For magnificence, for 
pathos, for vehement exhortation, for subtle disquisition, for every purpose of the 
poet, die orator, and the divine, this homely dialect — ^die dialect of plain worldog 
men— was perfectly sufficient. There is no book in our literature on wnich we could 
80 readily stake the fame of the old unpolluted English language ; no book which 
shows so well how rich that language is in its own proper wealth, and how little it 

has been improved by all that it nas borrowed We are not afraid to 

say that, though there were many clever men in England during the latter half of 
the seventeenth centuiy, there were only two great creative minds. One of those 
minds produced the 'Paradise Lost,' the other, the 'Pilgrim's Progress.' "«-

" We have read this book with the greatest pleasure. Considered merely as a 
composition, it deserves to be classed amone the best specimens of English prose 
whioi our age has produced. . . . The stvie is agreeable, clear, and manly, and, 
when it rises into eloquence, rises without eSort or ostentation. Nor is the 
matter inferior to the manner. It would be difficult to name a book which exhibits 
more kindness, fairness, and modesty."— Macaulay.

" The amount of labour Mr. Cus^s bestows to obtain ori^^inal information is 
mmense ; his anxiety for accuracy is intense, and the painstaking care with which 
he investigates statements and peruses •Id documents is remarkable. The result of 
lus industry is a work abounding in new and curious information. It differs from 
'iClutterbuck ' in this respect, that whereas that well-patronised and expensive book 
had most care and attention bestowed on the first volume— (that part of Hertford- 
shire where the author resided)— each successive portion of Mr. Cussans* history is 
manifestly an improvement on the earlier portions. Nothing can ever repay the 
author for the very great care, pains, and time h« has devoted to this work, which 
must have been truly a labour of love to him ; but he has sure reward in the esteem 
of those who can appreciate aright earnestness, diligence, and perseverance in the 
accomplishment of a useful and valuable object." — Herts Guardian.

" For many years the English public had the privilege of listening to the dis- 
courses and speculations of Professor Faraday, at the Royal Institution, on Matter 
and Forces ; and it is not too much to say that no lecturer on Physical Science, 
since the time of Sir Humphry Davy, was ever listened to with more delight. 
The pleasure which all derived from the exposiUons of Faraday was of a somewhat 
different kind from that produced by any ouer philosopher whose lectures we have 
attended. It was partially derived from his extreme dexterity as an operator: with 
him we had no chance^ of apolo^es for an unsuccessful expenment — no hanging fire 
in the midst of a series of brilliant demonstrations, producing that ^ depressing 
tendency akin to the pain felt by an audience at a false note from a vocalist. All was 
a sparkline stream of eloquence and experimental illustration. We would have defied 
a chemist loving his science, no matter now often he might himself have repeated an 
experiment, to feel uninterested when seeing it done by Faraday." — W. Crookbs.

*' An interesting and essentially popular resum^ of all that has been vrritten on 
the subject. M. Figuier has collected together the evidences which modem re- 
searches have accumulated, and has done this with a considerable amount of care. 
He endeavours to separate the inquiry respecting Primitive Man from the Mosaic 
account of Man's creation, and does not admit thisit the authority of Holy Writ is in 
any way questioned by those labours which aim at seeking die real epoch of Man's 
first appearance upon earth. ... An interesting book, vrith 363 illustrations, cH 
which tnirty are full-page engravings, confessedly somewhat fanciful in their com-

dence, the actual discovery of die objects of which they represent the use." — A thenetum,

GOSSE (Edmund W.)— KING ERIK: A Tragedy. With a 
Vignette by W. B. Scott. Small 8vo, cloth gilt, 6s. 

** The author's book. On Viol and Flute, displayed such a remarkable ear for 
music, such a singular poetic interpretation of flowers and trees, and such-like chil- 
dren of Flora, and, above all, such a distinct and individual poetic savour, that it 
would have been a pity indeed had these good gifts been wasted in any wrong 
direction. In this case there is happily no cause for such pity. We have seldom 
seen so marked an advance in a second book beyond a first. . . . The faults of 
King Erik are but slight matters ; its merits are solid, and of a very highoxder."—

"As a defence of the painter's character and career the work before us will pos- 
ubly meet with as much criticism as approval ; but there can, we think, be no 
question of its interest in a purely biographical sense, or of its literary merit. The 
letters and table-talk form in themselves a most valuable contribution to the social 
and artistic history of the time, and would be very welcome even without the 
memoir which precedes them." — Pall Mali Gazette, 

** The volumes are among the most interesting produced or likely to be produced 
by the present season." — Examiner. 

** One of the most moving histories that has been publbhed in modem days. . . 
Haydon's case has never before been fairly laid before the public ; the man has 
never been shown as he was in truth, through the medium of his correspondence, his 
diaries, sayines and actions. . . . Cmirming correspondence, and still more 
charming table-talk." — Morning Post. 

" Here we have a full-length portrait of a most remarkable man. . • . His 
son has done the work well — is clear and discriminating on the whole, and writes 
with ease and vigour. Over and above the interest that must be felt in Haydon 
himself, the letters afford us the opportunity of studying dosely many of the greatest 
men and women of the time. . . . We do not hesitate to say tnat these letters 
and table-talk forma most valuable contribution to the history of art and hterature 
in the past generation. The editor has selected and arranged them with uncommon 
judgment, adding many notes that contain ana and anecdotes. Every pa^e has 
thus its point of interest. The book will no doubt have a wide audience, as lOrell

** Not only does the volume include the better-known poems by the author, but 
also what is happily described as * the cream of the Comic Annuals.' Such delicious 
tilings as ' Don t you smell Fire ? * ' The Parish Revolution,' and ' Huggins and 
Duggins,' will never want readers." — Graphic. 

*' The volume, wliich contains nearly 800 pages, is liberally illustrated with facsimile 
cuts of Hood's own grotesque sketches, many of tbem pictorial puns, which always 
possess a freshness, and never fail to raise a genuine laugh. We have here some of 
Hood's earlier attempts, and his share of the ' Odes and Addresses to Great People.' 
Then we have the two series of * Whims and Oddities,' wMch ought to be prescribed 
for nervous and hypochondriacal people : for surely more mirth was never packed into 
the same compass before, more of the rollicking abandonment of a nch, Joyous 
humour, or more of the true geniality of nature which makes fun so delightful and 
leaves no after-taste of unkindness in the mouth. ' The Plea of the Midsummer 
Fairies ' will be found here in unabridged form, together with ' Hero and Leander,' 
a number of ' Minor Poems,' among which we meet with some very pretty fanc'es— 
the well-known ' Retrospective Review,' and ' I Remember, I Remember '— 
Hood's contributions to the C*>m, including * The Dream of Eugene Aram,' 'The 
Cream of the Comic Annuals ' — ^in itself a fund of merriment large enough to dispel 
the gloom of many a winter's evening — and the 'National Tales.' This is a fair 
representative selection of Hood's works, many of which have been hitherto 
inaccessible except at high prices. Most of the best known of his comic effusio is— 
those punning ballads in which he has never been approached — are to be found in 
the liberal collection Messrs. Chatto & Windus have given to the public"— ^«r-
