Trewman's Exeter Flying Post

Trewman's Exeter Flying Post was a weekly newspaper published in Exeter between 1763 and 1917.

Robert Trewman (1738/9–1802) and William Andrews quarrelled with Andrew Brice, printer of the Exeter Journal, and left him to establish the Exeter Mercury or West Country Advertiser: after several changes of title, the newspaper became known as Trewman's Exeter Flying Post. Trewman's widow, son Robert (d. 1816) and grandson Robert James Trewman (d. 1860) continued the paper, before it was bought by James Bellerby.[1] By 1870 the newspaper advertised itself as "the oldest and most extensively circulated Conservative newspaper in the West of England". Its local competitors were the Western Times and the Exeter Gazette.
