Surnames: Dixon
My grandmother Elizabeth Dixon told my mother that her family were travelling entertainers and Romany Gypsy. he also said her father met her mother in his travels. So I checked some census online and found the following. Does anyone recognise any of these names especially the last one, William R Dixon. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
