Ashe, Simeon, a Nonconformist and Presbyterian, was educated at Emanuel College, Cambridge, and afterward settled in Staffordshire, from whence he removed to London, where he exercised his ministry twenty-three years. He was one of the deputies who went to congratulate Charles II on his restoration at Breda. He died in 1662; "a man of holy life, cheerful mind, and fluent elegancy" (Baxter). He published a treatise on the Power of Godliness, and several single sermons.-Hook. Eccl. Biog. s.v.; Orme, Life of Baxter, i, 217.
