Founded as the London and Westminster Bank, it was the first firm founded under the Bank Charter Act of 1833. It wasn't until 1923 that it became known solely as the Westminster Bank. Its merger with the National Provincial Bank, came as a shock to the banking community, as no one had seriously believed that the Bank of England would permit mergers between the largest and most influential banks.
