Bit of the Banks History

 

The Stamford , Spalding, Boston and Lincolnshire Banking Company Limited came into being as a joint stock bank with this title in 1880. It carried on issuing its own notes into the early 20th century when it finally merged with Barclays Bank. The Stamford Spalding, Boston and Lincolnshire Banking Company never went bust. When the merger occurred, the whole note issued was honoured by Barclays. To show this had been done each note was given a V shaped cancellation cut over the signature area.

 

Stamford & Spalding Joint Stock Banking Co – 1831

Stamford, Spalding & Boston Banking Co – 1836

Became “Ltd” in 1874

Branches = 38

Taken over by Barclays – 1911
