Report on the manuscripts of the Marquess of Lothian, preserved at Blickling Hall from the Historical Manuscripts Commission contains details of the effects of the rebellion on the London Stock Exchange. It also mentions the presence of several officers in Leicester seeking lodging for the army on the night of December 5th, 1745. Also mention is made of a capture of an English ship by the Prince de Country (surely the Prince de Conti that was one of the ships that rescued Charles) out of St. Malo.
