SO9198 : National Provincial Bank, Wolverhampton The County of Stafford Bank opened in Bilston in 1836 as Bilston District Banking Co. The bank moved in to Wolverhampton in 1843. It issued its own notes until 1881. The bank assumed limited liability in 1873 as County of Stafford Bank Ltd. In 1899 the bank was wound up and its business sold to National Provincial Bank of England Ltd (established 1833) of London. In 1968 the National Provincial Bank was merged with the Westminster bank, adopting the National Westminster Bank name in 1970. By 2000 the National Westminster Bank merged with the Royal Bank of Scotland, but they continued trading under their own names, though recently they prefer the "trendier" NATWEST! How clever they are!!!

And what a financial mess they are in now!!!
