National Provincial Bank

 

a major English joint-stock bank that until 1968 was fourth among the “Big Five” of British banking. Established in London in 1833, it absorbed numerous other banks; some of the largest of these included Union of London and Smiths Bank (1918), Coutts and Company (1920), the Isle of Man Bank (1961), and the District Bank (1962). In 1968 it merged with the Westminster Bank, fifth among the Big Five, to form the National Westminster Bank.
