      Bank of New Bern at Milton 1830

      In 1830, the Bank of New Bern (North Carolina) adopted certain banking policies, and the bank's operation at Milton stated it would "attend" to those policies (adopted by resolutions). Click image to see the full article. Here is the part most relevant to Milton:
      _______________

      Office Bank of Newbern, Milton, 7th July 1830.

      "The Dealers at this office will attend to the above Resolutions."
      Alex. Henderson, Agent

      Milton Gazette and Roanoke Advertiser (Milton, North Carolina), 11 September 1830.
      _______________

      Unclear is whether in 1830 the Bank of New Bern at Milton was an agency or a branch. An agency had limited authority over banking matters, while a branch had considerably more authority, including the ability to issue notes.

      The newspaper item uses "dealers," "office," and "Agent." Thus, because the part of the newspaper item relevant to Milton is "signed" by "Alex. Henderson, Agent.", the Milton operation most likely was an agency -- could take deposits and make loans. Had it been a branch it would have had a "cashier" not an "agent."

      From what building in Milton this bank operated is not known.
