Ince Family HistoryThis interesting name is locational from places so called in Cheshire and Lancashire. The derivation is from the Welsh "ynys", which means an island, water meadow and the name is very apt for Ince in Cheshire which forms with Elton an island in the low-lying country on the Mersey. The spelling, recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, is Inise, developing through Ines and Ynes to its present day form. During the Middle Ages, when many people migrated from their homes to seek work, they adopted the names of their former village as a means of identification.
