Youghall Bank £1 signed by Giles. Date looks like 1800 or 1806. Anybody able to make it out?

It is difficult to read the date but I think it is 1808. I attach another example from 1809 where the date is easier to make out.

Here is a 1 Guinea & Half note issued by George Giles & Co. in 1809. The bank stamps are interesting: Five Quarters, August 25 1811; Six Quarters, November 1811 etc. The most likely explanation is that these quarters refer to 3 monthly intervals since the first bankruptcy filing. The stamps may be a record of payments made to the creditors at these time intervals.

Looks like there are 2 major designs for these bills. One has the block on the left with banker's names, the other has an oval with their initials in it.
