The Mint once housed the opulent mansion of King Henry VII of England, which was used for minting and from which the area derived its name. By the middle of the nineteenth century, however, the area had been taken by the Blighters, operating under Octavia Plumb. Under her rule, the street gang turned this area into one of their two Southwark strongholds.
In 1868, the Assassins Jacob and Evie Frye worked to liberate the city from Templar control. Following a lead from Henry Green, the twins liberated the area from the Blighters, allowing the Rooks to take control of the stronghold.
