Biography



This biography was auto-generated by a GEDCOM import.[1]

The name of George Dixon, is, like those of Jonathan Backhouse and Thomas Richardson, and other Quaker worthies, indissolubly linked with the history of Ayton School. Jonathan Backhouse saw with concern that the children of those connected with the Society of Friends in the North of England were drawing away from the Society instead of towards it. The scheme grew in his mind to establish such a school as had been already formed at Penketh and Rawdon, wherein such children might be suitably educated. Thomas Richardson set all financial difficulties to rest by his generous offer of a site and by his donation. George Dixon was the chosen man to superintend the new school. His early years had been passed in farming. This was in the future to stand him in good stead. After his marriage with Alice Swinburn he had developed and cultivated a taste for teaching, and had had six years' practice at Darlington and Shildon. In him the founders saw and chose a man who would carry out their designs in the spirit as in the letter. Accordingly George Dixon visited Brookfield, Penketh and Rawdon, and reported on the conditions of the life and work which he found there. On a basis similar to that on which these institutions were founded Ayton School was opened in 1841 with George and Alice Dixon as Master and Mistress respectively.
