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.

Early records

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.
