  Encyclopedia: Exeter House
Exeter House, the mansion house which communicates with the Full Street, from its connection with the history of this county, in the year 1715.
At that time it belonged to the Earl of Exeter, and Prince Charles Edward, commonly designated "the Young Pretender," took up his abode there, and held his Council of War in a fine old oak wainscoted room (now used as a drawing—room) before he determined to abandon his project.
This house was subsequently occupied by an ancestor of the late celebrated William Strutt, esq., and by other families, and is now the residence of William Eaton Mousley, esq., to whom it belongs.
