Ince, Peter -1648)

Peter Ince, stationer of Chester, was the son of Randle Ince, merchant and draper, and Alice, daughter and coheir of Rowland Barnes of Chester. His name first appears in the Register of the Chester Stationers Company in 1626. He was a friend and admirer of William Prynne, and is spoken of by Bishop Bridgeman as a great disseminator of puritanical books. He presented the Thomas Becon book to the Bodleian Library in Oxford in 1627, stamped with his arms.
