Dixon / Dickson – Mac Riocaird

A Hiberno-Scottish Clan, whom Alexander Nisbet [1657-1725] describes as a Cadet Branch of Clan Keith.

This Cadet Branch, as Dicson of Symonston & Hazelside, were Hereditary Castellan's of the Douglas Clan, and accordingly the Family descends in unbroken Line, from Hervey de Keith, Great Marischal of Scotland, to the present day.

Firstly as 'Dickson' and latterly 'Dixon' this Family appears in Irish Fiants and other Records from 1537 onward.

Today Clan Members in Ireland are principally found in Dublin and in Co Meath, particularly Rathcore & Longwood in the latter, as well as immediately adjacent areas in Co Kildare.
