Wikipedia says:  Trump Street is a street in the City of London that was originally known as Trumpadere Street, probably after the trumpet or horn makers who once worked there or in the adjacent Trump Alley (now demolished). It was built after the Great Fire of London (1666) but completely destroyed by bombing during the Second World War and has since been entirely rebuilt.
Freeman's Court, originally known as Trump Alley, once ran between Lawrence Lane and Honey Lane immediately to the south of and parallel with Trump Street
