    The one with that name currently in the US was founded in San Fransisco much later.

    Thank you - it was the Bank of North America....

    The Italian immigrant story of the Bank of America in San Fransisco is more well known - see what a missing word can do...

    Where does Alexander Hamilton come into the Liverpool link?

    I think what is more important is that Robert Morris was the First Superintendant of Finance - basically the first Finance Minister of the USA. He established the financial structures and system that allowed the creation of the economic system of the USA and the establishment of every other US bank - including the Bank of America.
    :
    He was also one of only two people to sign the three founding documents of the USA: The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.

    Unwise speculation led to his bankruptcy in 1798; he spent several years in debtors prison.

    Robert Morris, born in Liverpool and, as noted, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, had the nickname "The Financier of the American Revolution." He had a connection with Oxford on the eastern shore of Maryland where there is the Robert Morris Inn which dates to 1710 and claims to be "American's Oldest Inn."

    All the best

    After Robert Morris became superintendent of finance in May 1781, continental currency had ceased to be issued. Earlier, on April 30, 1781, Alexander Hamilton, then only twenty-three years old and still serving in the military, had sent Morris a letter. First, Hamilton revealed that he had recommended Morris for the position the previous summer when the constitution of the executive was being solidified. Second, he proceeded to lay out a proposal for a National Bank. Morris, who had corresponded with Hamilton previously (1780) on the subject of funding the war, immediately drafted a legislative proposal based on Hamilton's suggestion and submitted it to the Congress. Morris persuaded Congress to charter the Bank of North America, the first private commercial bank in the United States

    Hi Az,
    while acting as superintendant of finance, for the revolutionary government,Morris set up the "Bank of North America".This was the de facto,first national,central bank, which funded revolutionary efforts thereafter! Later,this became the "First bank of the United States",so not the "Bank of America" we know now!

    p.s guess who didn't read to the end of the thread....again!

    Sorry that's wrong.
    The Bank of North America continued to prosper using its original name until it merged in 1929 with the Pennsylvania Company for Insurances on Lives to form the Bank of North America and Trust Company. This institution then merged with the First National Bank of Philadelphia in 1955 to form The First Pennsylvania Banking and Trust Company. And this firm became Corestates which was acquired by First Union, which became Wachovia Bank.
