  • THE SCANDINAVIAN Earls trace their descent from the noblest and most heroic of the ruling dynasties of the North. Ivar, Prince of the Uplands in Norway, was the father of Eystein who had issue — Rogenwald and Mulahule. Rogenwald was a supporter of King Harold Harfagr and assisted him in obtaining the mastery over all the other independent Norwegian chiefs. One of his sons, Rollo, founded the line of Sovereign Dukes of Normandy and was ancestor to William the Conquerer. (Burkes Extinct Peerages, page 492).
  • Nearly eleven centuries ago there appeared at the Court of Halfdan Huilbein, King of Norway, a soldier of fortune, named Ivar. He was said to have been originally a shepherd. One day he was captured by a roving band of Northmen and carried off to sea. After a series of adventures he made his appearance at the Norse King's Court, about the year 700. Being of handsome presence, he became a great favorite with the king who made him General of his army. Prince of the Uplands, and in 725 bestowed upon him in marriage his daughter, Eurittea, the heiress of the realm. Halfdan died in 725, leaving his crown to his grand-son, Eystein.

  • DICKINSON FAMILY. Eleven centuries ago a soldier of fortune made his appearance at the court of Halfdan Huilbein, King of Norway. His name was Ivar. He had been a shepherd and had been captured by the Northmen and carried to sea. He drifted into a life of adventure. He became a favorite at the Norwegian Court. The King made him general of his army and in 725 gave him his daughter Eurithea in marriage. He was called Prince of Uplands. When the King died the son of Ivar became heir to the throne and during his minority Ivar was regent. This son, Eystein, reigned until 755. He was succeeded by his son, Harold Harfager. Rollo, a Prince of this line, overran Normandy in 910. His sixth and youngest son, Walter, received the castle and town of Caen as an inheritance. His great-grandson, Walter de Caen, accompanied William, the Norman, to England at the time of the Conquest. To this nobleman the line of Dickinsons descended from the first American pioneer. Nathaniel, may be traced. Nathaniel is the fifteenth in line, as follows:

  • THE Dickinsons are descended from an old English county family of Yorkshire. Through one of his ancestors in the sixteenth century, Mr. Horace E. Dickinson can trace his lineage direct to King Edward III., of England. The line of descent from this royal ancestor is through Joan of Beaufort, daughter of King Edward's son, John, of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. Joan of Beaufort married Ralph Nevill, the first Earl of Westmoreland, and her great-grandson, Richard Nevill, second Lord Latimer, had a daughter, Elizabeth Nevill. The husband of Elizabeth Nevill was Sir Christopher Danby, High Sheriff of Yorkshire, in 1545, and great-grandson of Sir Richard Danby, of Farnley, who was Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, 1460-72. Elizabeth Danby, the daughter of Sir Christopher Danby and his wife, Elizabeth, married John Dickinson, of Leeds, one of the leading woolen merchants and cloth manufacturers of his day, and an alderman of the city from 1525 until the time of his death, in 1554. John Dickinson and his wife, Elizabeth, were the ancestors of Mr. Horace E. Dickinson.
  • John Dickinson was in the ninth generation from the first of the family name in England, Johnne Dykonson, who was a freeholder of Kingston-upon-Hull, East Riding, of Yorkshire, in the reigns of Henry III. and Edward I. and II. His wife was Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas Lambert, of Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire, and of the Well Close, in Hull, an estate that came into her possession after her father's death. Well Close was originally an old Saxon monastery, dating from the time of St. Cuthbert and the Danes, and took its name from an old well in the close to whose waters peculiar curative powers were ascribed. Hugh Dykensonne, of Hull, a grandson of Johnne Dykonson, was a prominent merchant of that city, and one of the original Governors of the Guild of the Holy Trinity, now called Trinity House. His son, Anthoyne Dickensonne, of Hull, was a merchant and master-builder. He made some extensive repairs to York Minster, in 1385, and also erected the Priory and Hospital of St. Michael, founded by his father-in-law, Sir William de la Pole, who was First Gentleman of the Bed Chamber to Edward III., second Baron of the Exchequer, Collector of the Ports of Boston and Hull, 1338-56, and first Mayor of Hull from 1332-35, and again from 1338-56.
  • The grandson of Anthoyne Dickensonne was Thomas Dickinson, of Hull, who was the first to spell his name as it is now most commonly used. He was an alderman in 1443, an d Mayor in 1444. He married his kinswoman, Margaret Lambert, daughter of Sir Thomas Lambert, of Oulton, County Durham, standard bearer to Richard II. The mother of Margaret Lambert was Joan Umfravill, daughter of Sir Thomas Umfravill, of Harbottle Castle, Northumberland County, and sister of Sir Robert Umfravill, Knight of the Garter and Lord High Admiral of England.
  • Hugh Dickinson, of Hull, the son of Mayor Thomas Dickinson, and the seventh in descent from the first of the family name, sold the family homestead, Well Close, on the Humber, and bought Kenson Manor, on the Aire, near Leeds. His son, William Dickinson, of Kenson Manor, married Isabel Langton, of Ecclesfield, daughter of John Langton, of Ecclesfield, High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1509, and his grandson was the John Dickinson who, in the sixteenth century, became the husband of a descendant from King Edward III. To this John Dickinson was granted the coat of arms to which the family has since been entitled : Azure, a fesse ermine between two lions passant, or. ; crest, a demi-lion rampant, per pale ermine and azure. Motto : Esse Quam Videri.
  • William Dickinson, the son of John Dickinson and Elizabeth Danby, removed to the parish of Bradley, South Staffordshire, where his father erected for him a substantial mansion, the lower story of stone and the upper stories of timber. This he named Bradley Hall, and it has remained standing and in good preservation down to this generation, as one of the most substantial and picturesque of the old English manor houses. Thomas Dickinson, the grandson of William Dickinson, was connected with the Portsmouth Navy Yard from 1567 to 1587, and settled in Cambridge in 1587, where he married Judith Carey, daughter of William Carey, of Bristol.
