DEVONPORT GENERAL BANK

In 1810 Mr Thomas Husband (1761-1847) and one of his sons, Mr Herbert James Husband (1801-1862), formed the Plymouth-Dock General Bank.  It became the Devonport General Bank when Plymouth-Dock became Devonport on January 1st 1824.  Another son, Mr Thomas Husband junior (1787-1870), was a partner for a time.

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 Limited as part of its nationwide expansion.
