    • his business takes him to London, where it evidently starts in partnership with Thomas Mohringh in Old Broad Street. Although they describe themselves as merchants, much of their business is as navy agents. Apparently they also have a contract to supply ballast to the navy.

      According to a later lawsuit, Mohringh does not honour the agreement made when the partnership breaks up. He continues at Old Broad Street, while Toulmin moves to Crutched Friars. Three Toulmin children are baptised at St Olave's.

      It has been suggested that Oliver's family in Lancashire is associated with the Stout family who live nearby. Since Ellen Stout marries Thomas Cort of Lancaster, there may be an early link with Cort's supposed relations there, even a possibility that Oliver procures Cort his first job as a navy agent.

      Oliver Toulmin witnesses the wills of two of Cort's associates, Daniel Guion and Thomas Morgan. He also keeps an account for Coningsbury Norbury on Cort's behalf.

      Commercial activities besides navy agency include a £665 loan in 1771 to Earl Verney, who pledges his share in Ranelagh pleasure gardens as security. In 1773 Toulmin assigns the debt to Sarah Ireson of Lincolns Inn Fields.

      By 1783 he has taken his son Richard and nephew Oliver into partnership (two sons named Oliver have both died in infancy). They move west to Lisle Street, where Oliver snr dies in July.
