Taylors & Lloyds opened Birmingham’s first bank in 1765. It was a bank whose main customers were in the manufacturing and mercantile industries. With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, and the enormous part Birmingham played in its growth, the bank flourished, financing industry and trade in the town.
In 1852, the Taylors left the bank, preferring the quiet of the countryside, and the bank was renamed Lloyds & Company. In 1865, Lloyds became a joint-stock company and was now known as Lloyds Banking Company Limited.
Over the next 50 years, Lloyds took over more than 200 banks, either directly or indirectly. Lloyds continued to take over significant banking establishments during the early part of the twentieth century, securing its place as on of the ‘Big Five’ high street banks. Lloyds also began to venture in to foreign lands and acquired banks with branches in Argentina, Brazil and Europe.
The Lloyds Banking Group celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2015 and is now one of the big four clearing banks and is the largest retail bank in Britain.
