Waterford Bank. Newports. 1817

Here's another Waterford Bank: William Newport, Samuel Newport and John Newport.
A shame about the bank stamp, but still a nice example.
I guess the Newports were totally separate from the Roberts Banks.

1 Guinea, 25 November 1817.

Yes, the Newport family set up their own bank which they also named Waterford Bank. This example has William Newport as lead partner. Earlier notes have been seen with Simon Newport as lead partner. The bank stamps can provide useful information about the cancellation of notes and add to the interest level. Attached is an example of a 1 Pound note, dated 16th February 1820, which also has a bank stamp.
