Biographies of Ancient Wethersfield.
Dickinson, (Dykinson, Dykenson, Dykensonne, Dickemsonne). Much kindly help on
this family rec'd from Mrs. C. S. Prince and Mrs. A. C. Hawley, of Hartford.
Contrary to a fam. Trad. which claims a Scotch Origin, the author of the Morton
Memoranda, p. 131, traces its descent from Walter de Caen, a kinsman and
companion of William the Conqueror, and through him to Rollo, first Duke of
Normandy; also that Walter wedded the dau of the last Saxon lord of Kenson and
was afterward known as Walter de Kenson. In this he is supported by the suthor
of the most recent genealogy of the Dickinson family who traces the
Wethersfield Settler, Nathaniel Dickinson, back through 14 generations to the
said Walter de Kenson.
Just when the family took the Anglicized form of the surname is unknown, but
probably in the early part of the XIV Century. Its two most ancient forms were
Dickenson, then Dicconson. The former appeared in the reign of Henry VIII; but
it is not until a century later that the second syllable is spelled with an i,
which is clearly a corruption of the original orthography.
The arms of the family, as given by the Morton Mem., are "Vert. a cross betw. 4
hinds' heads, coupld, or, ___ Motto, Esse quam videri--i. e. "to be, rather
than seem to be." These arms are said to date from Henry VIII's reign, and were
used by John de Caen, of Kenson, in the time of Edward I; their heraldic
meaning (being, that the green field of the shield and the 4 hinds' heads,)
signify that the original bearers were rangers of the Royal forests--most
likely Epping, in Co. York; the cross, added in the time of the last crusade
signifying that the Dickinsons participated in that holy war. These, however,
do not accord with the arms assigned to them by the author of the Dickinson
genealogy--viz--those of Yorkshire and Bradly--"az fesse ermine, betw. 2 lions
passant, or, Crest, a demi lion rampant per pale erminoise et azure." The arms
first described were those of one Hugh Dickinson, who lived about 1422, the
supp. ancestor of the Americans, and who d. 1523.
Deacon Nathaniel Dickinson, an early settler in Wethersfield was the son of
William and Sarah (Stacey) Dickinson, of Ely, Cambridge, England, where he was
b. 1600 and with his wife Anna (Gull) and 3 children came to Watertown, Mass.,
in 1634; to Wethersfield in 1636 or 1637, where he seems speedily to have
become a prominent citizen; was on jury, Oct 14, 1642 (Col. Rec. I., p. 76);
was appointed Town Clerk, or "recorder", Dec 1, 1645 (perhaps earlier--Col
Rec., I, p. 76) the earliest town vote rec on the oldest extant Wetherfield
Recs., being in his handwriting; was dep. to General Court 1646-56; townsman
1647-48; his homestead rec. to him 1649 (See Chapt. VII, Vol I); and Oct 1654,
one os a comm. of 3 appointed by the COurt to advise with the constables of the
3 River Towns, abt "pressing men for the exp. into the Ninigret country," in
the Narr. War. When the movement on the part of many disatisfied members of
the Wethersfield, Hatfield and Windsor chhs., took place, Apr 1659, for the
emigration to Hadley, Mass., he and his sons, Nathaniel and John were present
and active among the 59 persons conerned and the father of one of the delegates
chosen to lay out the new plantation East of Northampton. The three were also
of the 29 present at a town meeting, Oct 1660, at which rules and regulations
for the new enterprise were adopted and signed. At Hadley, as at Wethersfield,
he became the first Town Clerk; was Town assessor; a magistrate; a member, at
its formation, 1663, of the Hampshire Troop under Capt Pyncheon; and connected
with the founding of Hopkins Academy, of which he was one of the first
trustees; when Maj. Pyncheon purchased the Hadley tract, he accepted Mr
Dickinson and Nathaniel Ward as reps of the planters, and they signed the final
settlement 29 Oct 1663. In both communities, Wethersfield and Hadley, he was
justly esteemed as an upright, intelligent, active and capable citizen, bearing
well his share in the labors, privations and dangers incident to a frontier
life. Worn out at last by these, especially those incurred in the defanse of
Hadley, and the Indian War of 1675-76 and depressed by the tragic loss of his 3
sons in that strife, he d. 16 Jun 1676, a noble example of Puritan godliness
and manly loyalty to duty. His will dated 29 May 1676 describes him as "late
of Hadley, now of Hadley."
