The Union Bank of Scotland was established as the Glasgow Union Banking Company, in 1830. In the 1930s, the Union Bank explored the possibility of a merger with Bank of Scotland. These early discussions came to nothing, but in 1950, serious negotiations began. Agreement was reached two years later, and the banks merged in 1955.
