Welcome to the Ince & Mayhew website. My aim is to create a space where you can find anything to do with William Ince and John Mayhew and their furniture.
I have already found numerous images from the National Trust, other stately homes, museums and auction houses which you can see on the Pinterest Board on the Furniture page. The Board probably needs sub-dividing already there are so many.
I will also post up information about the lives of both families. As a descendant of William Ince, through his son Frederick, I obviously have a lot more information about the Inces, but I am happy to include more on the Mayhews as well. Let me know if you have any verified facts to add.
I have only sketched over the Ince ancestor information on this website. My book has five chapters on the early period, including 'the redoubtable Maude Ince' as Sir Hugh Roberts describes her in his foreword. Her Will written in 1602 is a delight.
Please feel free to comment or send me a message through the contact page.
Sarah Ingle is the great great great great grand-daughter of William Ince and has been researching her family history for a number of years. She thoroughly enjoyed the detective work involved in tracing William’s lineage.
