RICHARD INGLE, mariner
 
INGLE, Richard; mariner, born probably in London, England, early in the 17th century. In 1642 he commanded a ship from London that was seized by the royalist governor of Maryland, but escaped, and, securing a commission from parliament to cruise in the waters of the Chesapeake against "malignants," reappeared in February, 1645, in the ship "Reformation." Taking advantage of a local insurrection, he expelled Leonard Calvert, and held possession of the government till August, 1646, when Calvert regained control. Ingle was specially excepted in a proclamation of amnesty. His exploit is known as the "Claiborne and Ingle's rebellion," though it is not proved that the former acted with Ingle. See "Richard Ingle, the Maryland Pirate and Rebel," by Edward Ingle (Baltimore, 1884).
