Exeter House

Exeter House

:"For Exeter House, London see Exeter Exchange"

Exeter House stood in Exeter Street, Derby up until 1854. Charles Aslin's Magistrates Courts were built on the site during 1935, but were closed at the beginning of 2004. This building now stands empty and boarded up, its fate not yet decided by the City Council.

This is where Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie" or "The Young Pretender") took up residence in 1745 and held his "Council Of War".

Below is an extract from Stephen Glover's "History of Derby" (1843):

: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.
