The coat of arms of Thomas Newland Allen, Hampton Court Bridge
The plaque above says "Hampton Court Bridge was opened in 1866, at the expense of Thomas Newland Allen, a local man who lived at Hampton on the Middlesex [north] bank. Originally a toll bridge allowing Mr Allen to recoup his outlay. It was bought by the Metropolitan Board of Works in 1876 and the toll was lifted, amidst loud cheering. The National Anthem was played by the band of the 3rd Surrey Militia and celebrated by a fireworks display on Hampton Court Green."
