LINTON (Parish) Linton (Parish) continued The Kerrs of Graden in this parish were distinguished in border warfare- Graden Place, their residence, until lately, manifested the traces of an ancient Fortress, Surrounded by a Moat- none of which now remain. A more delightful and Sequestered Situation than that which is occupied by the church & Manse can scarcely be conceived; the church crowning the Summit of a circular little hill; the manse about 100 yards distant from it, embosomed amid fine old fruit trees, and agreeably sheltered & approached by an avenue lined with tall trees- From the thickness & Strength of the walls of the Church, and the depth to which they have Sunk in the Soil, it exhibits marks of Considerable antiquity- It was repaired about 70 years ago, & Contracted within its original dimensions. It affords accommodation for 180 persons, & is Sufficient for the Inhabitants of the parish.
