A couple of months ago, a relative sent me a photo image of the Toll House
at Mythe Bridge, Severn River, possibly connected to my THOMAS family. I
would appreciate [Suezan ?] any additional information regarding this
place. I'm curious about toll collecting too. A limited piece of
information that my mother passed on to me was that the THOMAS family was
involved with the lochs/locks [?]. Thank you.

there is a toll collector listed at Bodmin Road Gate, and another one at
Mount Charles. Just where and why would they have been collecting tolls??
