Banknote Book & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

Catalog & market information for bank notes issued by Bishop De Jersey and Company

On 7 November 1804, two merchants named Charles Bishop and Henry de Jersey severed their partnership with Phillip Tyson Le Gros and subsequently operated as Bishop De Jersey & Company. Business was conducted from a granite building called Carrefour House, facing High Street. Because the partnership was unincorporated, contemporary documents reference the partners’ surnames, or the colloquial “Guernsey Bank.” Notice that the issuer appears variously as “Bank,” “Guernsey Bank,” or “Bank of Guernsey” on the 1808 and 1809 notes. In 1811, Bishop De Jersey & Company ceased operations along with Macculloch, Allaire, Bonamy & Company, leaving Guernsey without a bank until 1827, during which time banking was conducted through merchants.
