Arthur LINTON  (1622–1696)  Baron  Wigton was son of Arthur LINTON (1590–1646)  & Isabella who were originally from Caberston, West Linton, Parish Peebles, Scotland. [i]

Arthur was baptized, on January 8, 1622, in the Catholic Parrish Church in Lowe Crosby, Carlisle, Cumberland, England. [ii]

Arthur married Elizabeth KIRKBRIDE (1622-1670)  in 1640 in  the Catholic Parrish Church in Lowe Crosby, Carlisle, Cumberland, England.   

Elizabeth was born in 1622 in Carlisle, Cumberland, England and died in 1670 in Wigton, Parish Lowe Crosby, Cumberland, England. [iii]

Arthur was listed in the Abby records as a land Baron owning land in Westlinton, Carlisle, Wigton, Lowe Crosby, Cumberland, England.  [iv]   Carlisle is located at the confluence of the rivers EdenCaldew and Petteril, 10 miles (16 km) south of the Scottish border.   In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Crosby upon Eden like this: "CROSBY-UPON-EDEN, a parish in Carlisle district, Cumberland; on the river Eden and the Roman wall, 3 miles N by E of Scotby r. station, and 3¾ NE of Carlisle. It contains the townships of High Crosby, Low Crosby, Brunstock, and Wolby; and has a post office, of the name of Crosby, under Carlisle. Acres, 3, 590. Real property, £4, 292. Pop., 426. Houses, 75. The property is much subdivided. Crosby House is a chief residence. There are freestone quarries. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Carlisle. Value, £90.* Patron, the Bishop of Carlisle. The church is good." 

According to Roman Heritage Way - Carlisle to Walton / Banks, today Crosby-on-Eden is the combined name for two small villages, High Crosby and Low Crosby, within the civil parish of Stanwix Rural near Carlisle, Cumbria, England. The villages are by the River Eden north-east of Carlisle, joined by a road that used to be the line of the Stanegate Roman road. It has been thought on spacing grounds that there might have been a small Roman fort in Crosby-on-Eden, as part of the so-called Stanegate frontier which preceded Hadrian's Wall, but if such a fort exists it has not yet been found. The Stanegate ran in a deep cutting still visible next to the road running west from High Crosby, and it has been suggested that part of the reason for the cutting was to produce stone for building work. The line of Hadrian's Wall passes a mile or so to the north, and the Hadrian's Wall Path follows the Stanegate through the villages. In Low Crosby is the Church of St John the Evangelist, a rebuilt church by R.H. Billings in the Gothic style. A grange was built here and named Crosby. High Crosby is a half mile east of Low Crosby, and located in the village is Crosby House, a former mansion that is now a hotel.

Arthur died in 1696, in Lowe Crosby, Cumberland, England, at age 74. [v]   Elizabeth died four years later in 1670.
