North Eastern Banking Company

The period from 1893 to 1909, sees some fifty branches and sub branches opened in what is a prolific period of expansion for the North Eastern Banking Company. This growth continues almost to the point of merger with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins in 1914.  Both banks have been looking to merge with another in order to increase in size and influence, and both have looked beyond their own areas to the banks of the south. By joining together in the North of England without the need either for a large London bank’s involvement or influence, the seeds of Martins’ unique position as a national bank with a head office OUTSIDE London are sown.
