Certificate Vignette

Stourbridge & Kidderminster Banking Company was established on 29 March 1834 by James Foster, a local iron manufacturer, in direct opposition to a private banking company, Bate & Robins. Foster held an account with this private bank and had been requested to reduce his overdraft. Consequently, with great indignation, he wheeled a barrow full of sovereigns into his bankers and poured them onto the floor. The slighted industrialist then proceeded to form his own bank with a group of friends - the Stourbridge & Kidderminster Banking Company.

Foster was the first chairman and the new Joint Stock Bank, which soon took over the business of a private bank in Stratford-Upon-Avon (Tomes, Chattaway and Ford, established in 1810). Ford remained in Stratford as the branch manager. Joint stock banking in the West Midlands grew increasingly successful and the Stourbridge & Kidderminster benefited from the failure of two private banks in the area in 1851, gaining many customers from the bank closures.
