If we're including 3rd party sources, there are a few more in Mongoose's Monster Encyclopedias: Volume 1 has the barrow and bridge trolls; Volume 2 has cinder, mimic, sap, tar, and web trolls.

Just a minor nit, but since you note other inclusions from the original (1e) Fiend Folio, that the Ice Troll also originates -or, well, I don't know if it originates, but it is IN the 1e FF.
