Here is an early example of a £1 note issued by John Moore & Co, Newry, in 1805. An unusual feature is the strikethrough the bank title, Dublin address and two partner names. It has been reported that there were tensions with another banking house in the town, that of Trevor Corry & Company. PMI reports that two of Trevor Corry’s former partners joined Henry Moore’s Bank.

It is interesting to see that the later notes of John Moore & Co. did not use the title ‘Newry Bank’.
