Of the many family banks founded in Restoration England, Hoare’s Bank is the only one that continues – by adapting to the new circumstances of every generation – as an independent partnership. Three centuries of unaltered ownership provide an engrossing portrait of the world that shaped both it and the Hoare family. This is the history of a family-run business over several generations. It reflects the changing face of England over three centuries through the story of a single family.
