Dickson/Dixon (Cork)


Name Description
Dickson/Dixon (Cork) Abraham Dixon of Cork and Ballybrickan, county Cork, was a prominent member of the Cork locality in the early 18th century. In 1703 he bought some premises in Cork part of the forfeited estate of Arthur Galway or Ignatius Gould and land in the barony of Barrymore, formerly part of the Clancarty estate. At the same time Thomas Dixon of Ballybrickan bought 686 acres in the barony of Duhallow, the estate of Pierce Nagle, attainted. A collection of leases was deposited in the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1950 by the British Records Association relating to the Dickson estate in the barony of Duhallow. The documents trace the changes with regard to leaseholders during the 18th and 19th centuries. The leases are from members of the Dickson family until 1740 and then from Henry Boyle as sole executor and devisee of the will of Hugh Dickson of Ballybricken. These leases are described in Small Accession Index No 102.
