That is a good question. I had initially assumed that the W.H. Baskin listed as pro-Manager of Ball's Branch in 1890 and the Chief Cashier of Bank of Ireland were one and the same person. However, the census records of 1901 and 1911 reveal that the name is not unique ! It will require some further checking to answer this question.

Handily, we do have examples of the signature of the W. H. Baskin, Chief Cashier of Bank of Ireland as a starting point!

A more detailed search confirms that the W.H. Baskin associated with Ball’s Bank is the uncle of W.H. Baskin, the Chief Cashier of Bank of Ireland. The attached obituary for W.H. Baskin of Ball’s Bank is dated 2nd September 1907. The obituary of W.H. Baskin, the Chief Cashier of Bank of Ireland, is dated 21st May 1938.

There are some independent references confirming that the uncle was associated with Ball’s Bank and in one case he is described as Secretary. The nephew joined Bank of Ireland at a young age in 1874, became Chief Cashier in 1903 and retired in 1919.

By chance, I came across an interesting article in the search for W.H. Baskin which I will post in the Bank of Ireland 1922 string.

That's a very useful find on the two W.H. Baskins, and their relation to each other. They both retired Co. Down, I see from the snippets.
