The Weald of Kent, Surrey and Sussex
Thomas Beeching Printer friendly version

Thomas Beeching was born on 24th May 1767 in the Kentish town of Smarden. At the age of 22, Thomas arrived in Tonbridge to set up a linen draper's shop in Church Lane. He speedily established himself locally as a trusted advisor and many a country shopkeeper brought his savings to Mr Beeching knowing that they would be safe - Thomas Beeching was at heart a Banker. By 1815 he was issuing his own notes and by 1824 the draper's shop had been reconstructed and was exclusively devoted to being a bank. Thomas's sons expanded the banking business to Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, St Leonards and Folkestone when it was sold to Lloyds Bank Ltd
