There are a few streets called [somebody's] Rents.
I'd always supposed that they once used to belong to [somebody], or that they belonged to [another body], but that [somebody] was entitled to the income from them.
But I don't know who Wild is, sorry. You could try the local history section of the John Harvard Library
in Borough High St. They are supposed to be good.
...if you press it, they will come.
