The commercial establishment

The Bank’s shareholders, and first board of directors, included many of the infant colony’s commercial and administrative establishment: Macquarie’s secretary John Thomas Campbell, D’Arcy Wentworth, and William Redfern were among them. It leased premises in Macquarie Place, Sydney, from Mary Reibey, an ex-convict turned businesswoman, and opened for business on 8 April 1817. By 1822 the bank had moved to more salubrious premises in George Street. In 1892, the Board approved the contruction of a new Bank on George Street.
