Richard Ingle

Ingle, Richard, fl. 1642–53, English seaman and tobacco trader. Little is known of him. While the English civil war was in progress, he appeared (1645) with several ships off Maryland, and, armed with letters of marque from the lord high admiral under Parliament, he raided the colony and captured the capital, St. Mary's. Leonard Calvert, the proprietary governor and a royalist, fled to Virginia, but he returned the next year and reestablished his control. The proprietary government excluded Ingle from the pardon granted to the other rebels.
