Born at Portishead, Somerset near Bristol on 24 August 1878, Linton lived at Bushey (probably an art pupil at Herkomer's) in 1909, in Watford in 1911, and in Clifton, Bristol Clifton in 1913 where he was an art master at Clifton College. His exhibition record extends from 1909 to 1932, and three Cornish notices are found for 1909, 1914 and 1915 respectively.
