Perhaps the founder of the famous hard-riding and foraying Dicksons, or Dixons, was Marshal Harvey de Keth, who died 1240 and married Margaret Douglas, daughter of William Douglas, third son of Lord Douglas of Scotland. Their son, Dick (Richard) de Keth, was the father of Thomas Dickson of Hazelside, who was born in 1247. He succeeded his father as head of the clan and was killed on Palm Sunday, March 19, 1307' aged 60 years. His son, also Thomas Dixon, was next in line. The Dicksons continued in Scotland until many members of the clan left their native Lowlands for Northern Ireland and from there to the Quaker Colony of Pennsylvania.
