"Great Queen Street, built about 1629 from the designs of Inigo Jones or his pupil, Webb, was so called from Henrietta Maria, Queen of Charles I. The street was then, and for some time afterwards, occupied by people of rank. Here was Conway House, the residence of the noble family of that name. Here lived the Marquis of Winchester, Lord Herbert of Cherbury, the Marquis of Worcester, and the Earl of Bristol, whose mansion, taken in 1671 for the Board of Trade and Plantations, had seven rooms on a floor, a long gallery, gardens &c."
