Thomas K. LINOM, Cabinet Maker & Appraiser was born in Canterbury, he married Ann PACKMAN of Canterbury who was a Milliner and Dressmaker in the 70's and they had a daughter Eliza Jane LINOM who was also a Dressmaker, the family was living on Burgate Street (&) It looks like by the 90's Eliza's parents had passed away and she has moved to Castle street and has a Dressmaking business going with a partner by the name of Maria CAISTOR of Ospringe, they also apprenticed a Sissie Sarah CAISTER of Ashford in the early 90's.

(Dec 18, 1878, Journal of Horticulture and Cottage Gardener) Canterbury Poultry Show - This exhibition was held at the Music Hall, on the 12th and 13th. The competition was confined to the counties of Kent, Sussex, Surrey, and Middlesex, and considering the very limited accommodation the Music Hall offered for a Show of this description, we think it would have been wiser to have restricted the competition to one county only, or to have made a number of less classes, as it is very important both for the comfort of the visitors and the birds, that the organisers of a show should carefully consider the space they have at their command.....Pheasants (Gold or Silver) hc, W.
