Mallow Bank 1801-1835

Post by ThePloughman »

The Mallow Bank had a reasonably good innings. The bank was taken over by the Provincial bank of Ireland in 1835

The design of this note resembles that of Bank of Ireland notes of the same era. It is one of the more attractive private bank notes of the era.

‘Silver’ notes for small denominations were issued in Ireland in the early 1800’s to compensate for the lack of coinage or specie during the Napoleonic Wars. Here is a curious example for One Shilling Seven Pence Half-Penny issued by Mallow Bank. The partners at the time would have been Robert De La Cour and William Galwey but they are not mentioned on the note. The strange denomination equates to 1/14th of a Guinea.

Interesting to see no partners on the 1833 £1.

Here is a silver note for 9 Shillings with partners Robert De La Cour and William Galwey issued in the early days of Mallow Bank.

Indeed. Could the bank have had just one partner at this time?
We have seen this also in the case of the Bank of Kingscourt, no partners' names printed on the note.

EDIT:
I just realised, the date on the note is 1833, after the point at which the bank was no longer required to list its partners on notes!
