Goodman’s Fields,
Whitechapel. Fields belonging to a farmer named Goodman.   1
        “At the which farm I myself in my youth have fetched many a halfpenny-worth of milk, and never had less than three ale-pints for a halfpenny in summer, nor less than one ale-pint in winter, always hot from the kine … and strained. One Trolop, and afterwards Goodman, were the farmers there, and had thirty or forty kine to the pail.”—Stow.
