You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.
The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Origins of surname
Linton is a long-established English surname, linked to several places throughout the country with the same name. We have found no derivation for McLinton, but because Linton is also linked to three villages of that name in Scotland, it is likely that there is a connection.
William McLinton married Rose Ann Elizabeth Mulholland in Portadown, Armagh in 1865 and they eventually settled in Jersey, via Aldershot, Woolwich, Dorchester and Guernsey. We assume that William was a soldier, moving from posting to posting with a steadily growing family.
