    • Went to school at Coxwold Public School in Yorkshire, AB Sydney sussex college Cambridge 1707, Justice of the Peace, Vicar of Freiston-cum-Butterwick in Lincs for sixty two years 1711-73. "A vigilant and faithful minister of this parish" says the memorial tablet in Freiston church.

      In 1711 John Linton became vicar of Butterwick and resided at Whiteloaf Hall.
      Whiteloaf Hall has two stepped gables one of which carries a stone in the shape of a loaf of bread dated 1614. It is thought that the first loaf of white bread, in England was baked at this house. Previously brown bread has always been the staple diet. Whiteloaf Hall was a haunt of smugglers when the Wash came close up to the Bank.
