George Dixon, first superintendent of the Friends School, was the son of Ralph Dixon of Staindrop. In The Diaries of Edward Pease (Headley Brothers, London 1907) there is an entry for Thursday 21 March 1850: Went with W Matthews to Staindrop meeting where he had good service, dining at Ralph Dixon. It was interesting to be with W.M. and R.D., two Friends who from being soldiers with carnal weapons had laid these down and become clad with the armour of Christ and with weapons not carnal but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds of Satan. There is a footnote about Ralph Dixon:There is little doubt that this Ralph Dixon of Staindrop is one of the Dixons of that place and Raby, and therefore related to the ancestors of the very numerous Quaker family of this name, from which sprung the Engineer Dixons, and Sir Raylton and his brother Mr Waynman Dixon families.
