The name of the parish is derived from Lynn, which in the British language Signifies a pool, or lake, as well as a Cataract, and from the Saxon Word ton or town, which denotes a dwelling place- Linton thus means the dwelling at the lake. The ancient village of Linton of which there are now no vestiges, was situated near to the borders of a Lake still called Linton Loch, which lies in a S.E. [South East] direction from the parish church. The length of the parish, extending from the S [South] West to the North East as far as the English border is 6 1/2 Miles; its breadth a little more than 2 miles. It is bounded on the North & North West by the parish of Sprouston; on the West by the parish of Eskford; on the South, South- East, and East by Morebattle, and by Yetholm; and on the East by the parish of Carham in the County of Northumberland.
