People


David Jones 1758-1839
Address/Location:OS Grid Ref: SN768 343 geograph




David Jones, son of a farmer, became a drover. His marriage to Ann Jones(b.Cilrhedin) brought a fortune of £10,000 and enabled him to set up the Black Ox Bank in 1799 in The King's Head Inn on Stone St, Llandovery. The bank was inherited by his sons and grandsons, and was eventually bought by Lloyd's Bank Ltd.

Carmarthenshire drovers, whose black cattle embellished the bank's notes, drove cattle from Wales into England and on to London. The bank enabled drovers to act as financial middlemen for farmers, paying creditors once cattle were sold and transporting funds between Wales and London. Farmers and traders saw the bank as trustworthy, and the bank flourished to such an extent that it had more branches than any other private bank in Carmarthenshire. In Llandovery Lloyd's Bank is run from Prospect House to which the Jones family moved in 1903.
