And Mike Petty’s on-line Scrapbook:

1648 The Linton Uprising was an attempt, led by a Captain Reynolds from Castle Camps, to raise a relieving force for the Royalist army besieged at Colchester.

See Mike Osborne, Defending Cambridgeshire p.69.

1812 There was a large fire in the town. A man was convicted on the evidence given by his son. The body was buried on the north side of the church.

In 1913 the Cambridge Antiquarian Society were given a presentation about the history of Linton by W M Palmer which was reproduced in the Cambridge Chronicle and printed as a brochure:

Linton Antiquities 1913
