Count Floris V granted Delft freedom from tolls on imports and exports

Date: 
October 23, 1266

Floris V, count of Holland, affirmed the privilege that his father also granted, to the citizens of Delft, ordering his toll gatherers not to collect tolls from the citizens of Delft for goods they import or export from Delft. After a person was a citizen of Delft, this privilege applied to him.

Through the following three centuries, the citizens of Delft were granted freedom from other tolls by other noble land (and thus canal) owners.
