Swan Street, Minories
   East out of Minories to Mansell Street (P.O. Directory). Partly in Portsoken Ward.
   Former name: "Swan Alley" (O. and M. 1677, and in Tomlinson's Hist. of the Minories, p.294).
   The alley was much smaller and narrower, and the street seems to have been rebuilt towards the end of the 18th century.
