I've just come across this very enjoyable article about Ince & Mayhew on Christie's features page. Charlie Cator is interviewed about the book he wrote with Hugh Roberts about the firm; Industry and Ingenuity. The article is illustrated with some lovely furniture attributed to Ince & Mayhew and there is an interesting section about their upcycling of various items, including some beautiful chairs which they re-upholstered for Sir Cecil Bisshopp, now at the Lady Lever Art Gallery, but unknown as Ince & Mayhew pieces when we visited in 2015, as the bills for Parham Park had not been found then.
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.
