Following the death of Frederick Huth Jackson in 1921, Frederick Huth and Co was in an increasingly parlous state, and the Governor of the Bank of England pushed for it to be amalgamated with Konig Brothers, which duly happened in 1923. British Overseas Bank, established in London in 1919, became part of the Royal Bank of Scotland in 1962.
