This design is reminiscent of Bank of Ireland notes of the era. The similarity didn't stop the bank from having a short lifespan apparently.

Yes, the £1 notes of this bank bear a striking resemblance to the Bank of Ireland £1 notes of this era. Williams & Finn issued a large number of £1 notes and all appear to have been issued in 1805. Examples turn up frequently at auction.

Other denominations issued by Williams & Finn appear to be scarce or even rare. An example of the much scarcer 1 Guinea note from 1805 is attached.
