Lacons, Youell & Kemp records
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
This private bank was established in 1791 as Lacons, Fisher & Co. in Yarmouth. The founding partners were Edmund Lacon, a brewer, and James Fisher, a merchant. It was also known as the Yarmouth, Norfolk and Suffolk bank. When Harveys & Hudsons (est. 1791) of Norwich failed in 1870, Lacons acquired some of its offices. By the time it was taken over by Capital & Counties Bank in 1901, it had become one of the largest banks in East Anglia.
