Could the double n in "linner" possibly be a single m, making it "limer"? A
"white limer" plastered interior walls using a lime and water plaster. Or
perhaps it could be "mn", making the word "limner", a draughtsman or artist.
The only definition of "Linner" I could find was as a modern slang word,
meaning a late lunch/early dinner (rather like "brunch" - late
breakfast/early lunch)
