In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Ince like this:

INCE, a village and a parish in Great Boughton district, Cheshire. The village stands adjacent to the Mersey, and to the Hooton and Helsby railway, 4½ miles W by S of Frodsham; and has a station on the railway, and a post office under Chester. The parish comprises 1, 560 acres of land, and 2, 285 of water. ...

Real property, £3, 656. Pop., 371. Houses, 63. The manor, with all the land, belonged to the abbots of St. Werburgh; went, at the dissolution, to Sir Richard Cotton; passed to the Cholmondeleys, the Wynnes, the Warings, and the Yateses; and belongs now to Edmund W. P. Yates, Esq. Ince Hall, the seat of Mr. Yates, was built in 1849; and is an edifice of white freestone, in the Italian style. Traces of a monastic establishment exist in what are now the houses of a farmstead. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Chester. Value, £250. * Patron, E. W. P. Yates, Esq. The Church consists of nave, N aisle, and chancel, with a tower; and was restored in 1854, at a cost of about £3, 400. Charities, £7.
