Gunner and Company was an English private bank, based in Bishop's Waltham, Hampshire.

Founded in 1809, it served as the primary provincial bank for Bishop's Waltham and the Meon Valley throughout much of the nineteenth century. It was the last provincial private bank in the United Kingdom, from 1921 until it was bought out by Barclays Bank in 1953.[1]

The Gunner family continued to run the legal practice of Gunner & Carpenter until 1973.
