Mansell Street was named after a relative of William Leman, whose great-uncle, John Leman had bought Goodman's Fields earlier in the seventeenth century. Alie Street ran along the western side, with Leman Street to the east, Prescot Street to the south, and Alie Street to the North. These new streets were developed in the late seventeenth century while Goodman's Fields was used as a tenterground.
