Mansion Road in Freemantle was named after Freemantle House, a large house and estate that formerly stood to the north of Payne’s Road. In 1852 the house and estate was bought by Sampson Payne (after whom Payne's Road is named), a local businessman and twice mayor of Southampton. Payne demolished the house and sold off the estate to housing developers. Mansion Road dates from this time.
