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.

Here is an example of a ‘Silver Note’ issued by the Bank of Cotter & Kellet’s, Cork, for 7 Shillings and 7 pence. The unusual denomination, issued during the Restriction Period, equates to one third of a guinea. It is interesting to see that there is no date on the note and the partners are not specifically mentioned. However, the note can be dated to the period 1799-1804.

Here is a silver note issued by Cotter & Kellet for 9 shillings. The year is not easy to read but looks like 1800 although it could possibly be 1801.

At least three separate design types here, by bank symbol alone.
