Cotter & Kellett's. Cork Bank. 1800-1809

Post by ThePloughman »

Here is another Cork Bank. £1 note.
Looks like Cotter Bar, and three Kellets are the partners.

Can't read the date.
Any info about it?

This Bank was known as Cotter & Kellett's. The lead partner was Sir James Laurence Cotter Bart. The other partners were Richard Kellett, Sir Richard Kellett Bart and William Kellett. This partnership operated between 1800 and 1809. The title Bart is often seen on the partnership names of old Irish Private Bank notes. Bart is short for Baronet, an hereditary title awarded by the British Crown. A Baronet was generally addressed as Sir. It shows that many of the owners of these private banks were wealthy aristocrats.
