Goodman's Fields
   East of the Minories Precinct. In 35 H. VIII. Roland Goodman, fishmonger, had a tenement, with a garden and three closes of land abutting towards the garden east and towards the late priory of Minoresses west and two parcels of pasture leased with it and together with it lying in the parish of St. Mary Matfelon and belonging to the priory (L. and P. H. VIII. Dom. S. XVIII. Pt. 1, p. 538).
   In Stow's time a farm, and still represented as open ground in O. and M. 1677. But when Strype wrote in 1720, the Fields had been converted into fair streets with very good brick houses well inhabited by merchants-Mansell Street, Prescott Street, Leman Street, and Alie Street.
   Now converted into places of business, but the former name of the site is recorded in Bacon's map, 1912.
