Old Banknotes: Multi-Branch Issues

All banks with the right of note issue were required to list the branch of payment on each banknote. Around 1850 banknotes of the Bank of Ireland began to appear with several branches on each note. This practice was swiftly adopted by the other banks, leading to the multi-branch note issues.

By the 1860s six of the larger Joint Stock banks had the right of note issue. They were: Bank of Ireland; National Bank; Ulster Bank; Northern Bank; Provincial Bank of Ireland; Belfast Banking Company. A seventh bank, the Agricultural and Commercial Bank failed in 1840. • Version 2.1.0 • Last update • COPYRIGHT ©2000, 2009, 2015, M Mac Devitt. Reproduction with citation permitted.
