Parr's Bank cheques

Parrs Bank cheques
Back of Parrs Bank cheque


Four cheques issued by Parr's Bank Ltd and used by the "Guardians of the Poor of the Hinckley Union" in 1911 and 1913. The cheques state that Parr's Bank also incorporates Pare's Leicestershire Banking Co Ltd.

All are payable to J W Preston who was the clerk to the Guardians and was also the countersignatory of the cheques. The two 1913 cheques are annotated as being for petty cash and postage, but presumably the others were for similar purposes.

They are 210 x 150mm in size and are endorsed on the back by the payee. They are also stamped as being paid. There is some marking and creasing around the edges but this is not surprising as they have been stored away for over 100 years

These are interesting items of banking ephemera from a bank that no longer exists.
