The ancestors of the Ince surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the region of Ince in Cheshire West. Ince is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Ince Early Origins



The surname Ince was first found in Cheshire at Ince, a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and historically in the union of Great Boughton, Second division of the hundred of Eddisbury. The first record of this local was found in the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Inise. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ince-in-Makerfield or Ince is a regenerated township in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, but historically in Lancashire. The earliest mention of the Manor of Ince and the Ince family dates from about 1202 in this area. At that time, it was part of the barony of Newton in Makerfield (Newton le Willows.) "The family of Ince were anciently lords of this manor, which, in the reign of Henry IV., was conveyed by their heiress to the Gerards." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
