BANK OF ENGLAND.
The Bank of England was the first Joint-Stock Bank established in England. It was Incorporated by William III. in 1694. When first established, the notes of the Bank were at 20 per cent discount, and so late as 1745 they were under par. Bank Bills were paid in silver, 1745. Cash payments were discontinued in 1797, when notes of one and two pounds were first put into circulation. Banks were first established in 808 by the Lombard Jews, some of whom settled in Lombard-street.
