SOURCE: R. Ackermann. The Microcosm of London (London, 1835), vol. II, pl. 50 NOTES: The market takes its name from a mansion built in stone with a lead roof belonging to the Neville family built on this site in the early 14th century. Both the market and the mansion were destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. The rebuilt market, fashioned around three courtyards, was replaced in 1881 by buildings designed by Horace Jones.
