Hello Sally, perhaps you are looking for my Grandfather, Richard Dixon who immigrated to New Zealand about 1914 from the Dixon line at Nateby, Rakehead. My grandfather married a Lousia Evans, they had 4 children one of which is my father Thomas who was born in 1926. My father married Doreen Davis and had 7 children, 5 boys and 2 girls of which I am one of the girls. I moved to Australia in 1978, married an Australian and over the years my parents, my sister and brothers have moved over here to Australia, except for 1 brother who remains in New Zealand.
My husband and I took my mum and dad over to England a few years ago to visit Rakehead, Nateby and the rest of the Dixon line in 2006, it was a fabulous trip and my father was thrilled to see where his father Richard had grown up.
I keep contact with the Dixon's in Nateby, although Jonanthan whose son Paul runs Rakehead passed away nearly 2yrs ago.
Perhaps not the right Dixon you were after???
