DEVONPORT GENERAL BANK
In 1810 Messrs Thomas and Herbert James Husband formed what after 1824 became the Devonport General Bank.
Its premises in 1822 were at number 78 Fore Street.
As Messrs Husband and Son, it met all its commitments during the banking crisis of 1825 but was acquired in 1838 by the National Provincial Bank of England as part of its nationwide expansion.
