The banking partnership of the Pease family

1820 Bank founded

Presumably involved Joseph Pease and Joseph Whitwell Pease

1872 After the death of Gurney Pease, the mineral quarrying interests were put into a new company, J. W. Pease and Co

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.
