Whatever your next step, Lloyds Bank will be by your side.
Lloyds Bank history – key milestones
In June 1765, Taylors & Lloyds opened as a private bank in Birmingham. The bank was established by Sampson Lloyd, a Quaker and iron founder, and John Taylor, a Unitarian and cabinet maker along with their two sons. For nearly 100 years, the business prospered from a single Birmingham office.
Today, the Lloyds Bank black horse is one of the most iconic and enduring logos in the UK. It can be traced back to 1677. It was inherited by Lloyds Bank in 1884 and has been in existence for 130 years.
In December 1972, Lloyds Bank installed its first Cashpoint machine at Brentwood in Essex. By 1988, more than 2,000 were in operation up and down the country. This was the first time the name 'Cashpoint' was used and it was registered as a trademark in 1986.
In 1995 Lloyds Bank and TSB merged to create Lloyds TSB, forming one of the largest forces in British domestic banking. In January 2009, in the midst of a global financial crisis, Lloyds TSB took over HBOS plc. The new company, Lloyds Banking Group, instantly became the largest retail bank in the UK.
On 9th September 2013 Lloyds TSB once again became two separate banks. More than 630 branches were brought together across Britain to form the new TSB. And the iconic black horse logo was given a makeover for the return of Lloyds Bank on the high street.
