"dickson" family name, ancestry, and history


date=July 2010 Dickson or, as is common in England, "Dixon," is a patronymic surname, traditionally Scottish and thought to have originated upon the birth of the son of Richard Keith, son of Hervey de Keith, Earl Marischal of Scotland, and Margaret, daughter of the 3rd Lord of Douglas. "Nisbet in his Heraldry (Edinburgh 1722) says 'The Dicksons are descendants from Richard Keith, said to be a son of the family of Keith, Earls Marischals of Scotland' and in proof thereof carry the chief of Keith Marischal. This Richard was commonly called Dick and the 'son' was styled after him. The affix of son in the Lowlands answering the prefix Mac in the Highlands." As a result, Clan Dickson is considered a sept of Clan Keith. Richard Keith's son, Thomas, took the surname "Dickson," meaning "Dick's son" or "Richard's son." Thomas Dickson (1247–1307) himself has quite a history. He was associated in some way with William Wallace, and was killed by the English in 1307 in battle. Tradition states he was slashed across the abdomen but continued fight holding the abdominal wound closed with one hand until he finally dropped dead. He is buried in the churchyard of St Brides, Douglas, and his marker shows him with a sword in one hand holding his belly with the other. Robert the Bruce made him Castellan of Castle Douglas the year before he was killed. The Dicksons/Dixons (and 30 other derivates) family name was first found in Scotland whilst the Dixons in England who are of Scottish descent from Thomas Dickson living in 1268 are of the same origin as the Scottish Dicksons. Early records show Thomas Dicson, a follower of the Douglas clan, at the capture of Castle Douglas in 1307. The Dickson's coat of arms shew the Keith "pallets gules" and the Douglas "mullets argent", this is to shew their descent from these two ancient Scottish noble families. The family mottoes include "Fortes fortuna juvat", "Coelum versus", for Dickson: translated as "Fortune favours the brave", Heavenward"; whilst "Quod dixi dixi" Dixon, is translated as "What I have said I have said". Other Landed families included the Dicksons of Bughtrig, the Clan Chiefs for hundreds of years, now extinct. The Dicksons of Westerbinning, whose descendants include the Dicksons of Kelso, Peebles-shire, whose descendants include James Dickson (1784–1855) and his brother Robert Dickson (1782–1858) who both settled at Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1807 and 1802, after emigrating from Montrose, Forfarshire, where they were born and raised. Their parents were James Dickson (1748–1826) merchant and bailie of Montrose, who was born at Kelso, and descended from the Dicksons of Westerbinning, and Christina Murray who was born at Montrose, where they were married in 1780.

Their youngest brother Peter Dickson (1786–1867) managed the British side of the business from London, business was good and continued in expansion with sawmills, shipping and the trading of both imports and exports of a variety of goods. From these two brothers, James and Robert, descend the Swedish branch of Dicksons who became rich merchants, bankers, industrialists, philanthropists, politicians, and shipowners, the family were ennobled in 1880 and Oscar Dickson (1823–1897) was created Baron Dickson in 1885. Four members of the family were members of the Swedish parliament these were: Charles Dickson (1814–1902) M.D., M.P. for Gothenburg, in 1867 he was appointed a member of the government Committee, on the drafting of a new kind of poor relief.

The French branch of the family was founded by David Dickson of Clocksbriggs and Rescobie J.P., Officier Legion d'Honneur (1811–1869) who was born at Rescobie, by Forfar, Forfarshire, and married Elizabeth Lindsay of Almerieclose (1815–1855), by Arbroath, Forfarshire, she died at Tours, France, aged 40, in 1855.

Since 1998, it has been part of Glen Raven Inc. of North Carolina, America, and is now part of the largest manufacturing company of outside textiles e.g. awnings, upholstery fabrics, camping equipment, truck tarpaulins, marquees, and laminated materials for safety clothing, in the world. David was the eldest son of Captain Alexander Dickson of Weymss (1781–1864) and his spouse Isabella Duffus Cargill (1787–1870) who were married on 25 January 1811 at St Vigeans, Arbroath and the grandson of David Dickson of Clocksbriggs and Rescobie (1743–1803) Freeholder and Commissioner of Supply for Forfarshire who married Mary Cuthbert on 19 November, 1776, at Rescobie Church, by Forfar, Forfarshire, the daughter of Councillor John Cuthbert merchant-burgess of Dumfries. These Dicksons of Clocksbriggs and Rescobie were the descendants of Bailie David Dickson of Forfar, who in November 1660 was elected to the parliament of the Three Estates, Edinburgh, as M.P. for Forfar burghs. This parliament was the Restoration parliament of King Charles II and is commonly known as the 'drunken parliament' which sat from 1 January to 12 July 1661. The Dickson family were prominent in the East Marches as a Border, or Riding Clan, and were known as "The Famous Dicksons" and as such, their descendants were most numerous in the areas along the border of England and Scotland. On January 27, 2010, a tartan was registered the Dickson (Kirkudbrightshire) tartan, at The Scottish Register of Tartans for the name and family of Dickson. The tartan combines elements of the Clan association of the Scottish Dicksons with the Keith and Douglas tartans for the Dickson family name whom the Dicksons descend from. Of this family of Dicksons descended from the Earls Marischal of Scotland, are many notable families, including Thomas Dickson (1247–1307), Baron of Symington and Hazelside, and Governor of Douglas Castle, the patriarch of the House of Dickson and the Dickson name; the Dickson baronies of Bughtrig, Belchester, Leitholm, the Peel, Sornbegg, Hardingham Hall, Glentoran, or Ballymenock (Dixon), Warford (Dixon), and Astle (Dixon).
