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.
