Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Globe Insurance Company was established in 1803 for the business of fire and life insurance in premises at Cornhill and Pall Mall. In 1864, it merged with Liverpool and London Fire and Life Insurance Company and the new company was named Liverpool and London and Globe Insurance Company with London offices in Cornhill and 20-21 Poultry.

The Liverpool and London Fire and Life Insurance Company had been formed by an amalgamation in 1846 of the Liverpool Fire and Life Insurance Company (established in 1836 at 8 Water Street, Liverpool, for the purpose of fire and life insurance in the United Kingdom, North America and overseas) and London Edinburgh and Dublin Life Insurance Company (instituted in 1839) of 3 Charlotte Row, Mansion House and Chancery Lane. The company had moved into the Poultry premises in 1850.

In 1919, Liverpool and London and Globe Insurance Company became a subsidiary of Royal Insurance Company.
