In 1751 "John Linton the Younger of Dettingen Parish, the son of William" acknowedged receiving his share of his father's estate from GRAYSON, his guardian and stepfather. The youth got 4 Negro slaves, 30 pounds, and a third of the land owned by the estate. John fell into serious financial straits in the 1760s, partly caused by loyalty to half-brother Benjamin GRAYSON, Jr. Linton co-signed notes for GRAYSON who was unable to cover the debts. Linton was able to avoid bankruptcy (GRAYSON's fate) only by selling off most, if not all, of his inheritance. His sales began with 270 A., a third of a tract on Cockpit Point granted to his father in 1730. Then he mortgaged the 509 A. that his grandfather had patented in 1727, "together with all corn now growing on the plantation in Prince William and all wheat." Later he was forced to sell this land. Next he mortgaged sheep, cattle, hogs, horses, furnishings and 4 slaves. After these losses he was reduced to running an "ordinary " in Colchester.
