Trevor Corry & Co. Newry Bank ca.1804

Post by DOC »

Tervor Corry also set up a bank in Newry called ‘The Newry Bank’ about 1804. The original partners were Trevor Corry, Hans Ogle, Robert Macan, Hugh Carlile and Smithson Corry. The history of the bank is obscure and it appears to have operated only for a short time. A silver note, for 3s 9½d is known with an 1804 date.

This is the lesser-known Newry Bank. I have not seen any notes from Corry's except this one.

This bank appears to have been short lived which would explain the lack of notes. I found a notice in a contemporary newspaper which suggests that the bank was dissolved in an orderly fashion in 1807.

The attached family tree is useful and summarises the relationship between members of the influential Corry family. Trevor Corry was a prominent figure in Newry and a magistrate for 35 years. His brother Smithson was also a magistrate. Isaac Corry (1752-1813), the well known politician was a cousin of Trevor Corry. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer of Ireland and a member of the Irish and British Parliaments.

In an article titled, The Moores of Drumbanagher, Isaac Corry is reputed to have set up a bank in Newry. However, I could find no evidence to support this and it seems likely that the bank mentioned is that of Trevor Corry & Co.
