The banking partnership of the Pease family
1820 Bank founded
Arthur Francis Pease sold his interest in the family bank, J. and J. W. Pease, to his uncle, Sir Joseph Whitwell Pease not long before the failure of that bank in 1902.
1902 The bank became insolvent, mainly due to a court settlement against Joseph Whitwell Pease concerning the administration of the estate of his niece (the countess of Portsmouth), for which he had acted as trustee for many years. The bank was absorbed by Barclay and Co.
