The Ningbonese or Ningbo people are the people of Ningbo, China, whether resident or abroad. The Ningbonese are a subgroup of the Wu Han ethnicity. Many famous Chinese people have come from Ningbo and many more have Ningbo as their ancestral home.
Because Ningbo was formerly the capital of Ming Prefecture, its people are sometimes also known in Chinese as the Mingzhou. People from Zhoushan are also considered to be Ningbonese, since Zhoushan was formerly part of Mingzhou as well. Despite their significantly small population size in comparison to other Han Chinese subgroups, Fuzhounese people have produced a large number of famous scientists, mathematicians and scholars when compared to other Han Chinese; with exception of Fuzhou people and Taishanese people.
