Dixon

The name Dixon in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from England, especially during the seventeenth century. The natve Gaelic O'Diochon Sept of Counties Derry and Antrim sometimes anglicized their name to Dixon, as well as Deehan, Dickson and Deighan.

Origen: Escocés. The ancestors of the Dixon family were part of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. They derived the name Dixon from son of Dick which is a derivative of the personal name Richard. First found in Kirkcudbrightshire, where they held a family seat from early times. They were descended from the ancient Pictish Clan Keith, and the first Dickson was son of Richard Keith, son of the great Marischal of Scotland, who died in 1249, and Margaret daughter of the third Lord Douglas. Hence the clan has always claimed to be followers of the Douglas clan.

Variantes: Dixon, Dickson, Dixoun, Dikson, Dyxson, Dyckson, Dicksoun, Dicson y otros.

Motto Translated: Fortune favours the Bold.
