Here is a £3 note from this partnership dated 1st June 1808. This is the earliest date I have seen on a £3 note from any Irish Bank. If anyone has an earlier example it would be interesting to hear about it.

Here is a Waterford Bank 5 Guineas post bill. It looks like an incomplete proof as the partner’s names are omitted. The style is similar to other post bills issued by Atkins & Co. so it is a reasonable assumption that it is related to this bank. However, the 1818 date appears to be spurious as Atkins & Co. failed in 1809.

It is interesting to note that the promissory statement is different compared to other post bills from this bank, being payable 7 days after sight rather than the customary 21 days.
