Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The internal trade of the British Isles has been relatively free of passage tolls, when compared, for instance, with France, though some tolls were paid at bridges and ports. Some toll books for markets and fairs survive in local record offices. See, for example, P. R. Edwards, The Horse Trade of Tudor and Stuart England (1988), and the report of the Royal Commission on Market Rights and Tolls, 1888. See also turnpike roads.
