I have a keen interest in the work of Wharton Dickinson, a nineteenth century Family Historian who collected much information on the early Dickinson Family members and presented his findings in 1883 at a meeting in Amherst, Massachusetts of over 600 descendants of the American branches of the family. I have done a lot of research into Wharton's claims that the family were of Viking descent and were descendants in England of Walter De Caen, a half Norman half Saxon, who settled in England shortly after William the Conqueror defeated King Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Much of this research will be made available in the coming months.
