This note seems to have Ambrose Usher Congreve crossed out as a partner's name.

Here's a £3 note, 1809, with Samuel Roberts, John Roberts, Ambrose Congreve. No mention of Ambrose Usher Congreve on this one.

There were several banks in Waterford in this era.

Here is an example of the £1 note with Ambrose Ussher Congreve as lead partner. The serial number is lower than the other example posted where he is crossed out as partner.

The usage of notes with a partner crossed out is interesting. A sort of overprint to make the notes usable after circumstances changed. It could be regardedas a variety.

Interesting to note that there is another variant for the £1 notes with the partners initials missing below the vignette to the left. The section for the date bottom left is also missing.
