Mark Lane ran north-south from Fenchurch Street to Tower Street. It was for the most parte of this Towerstreet warde (Stow). The north end of the street, from Fenchurch Street to Hart Street was divided between Aldgate Ward and Landbourn Ward. Stow says Mark Lane was so called of a Priuiledge sometime enjoyed to keepe a mart there, long since discontinued, and therefore forgotten, so as nothing remaineth for memorie (Stow). Modern scholars have suggested that it was instead named after the mart, where oxen were fattened for slaughter (Harben).
Mark Lane, or Mart Lane, is found on the Agas map west of Herte Str. and Sethinge La., bearing the label Marck Lane. Mark Lane is also found on Benjamin Cole’s 1754 engraving of Tower Street Ward (Cole).
