Family Arms, Crest and Motto

The Dixons of Meath are “Armigerous” which means that they have their own version of the Dixon arms, granted to their ancestor the Rev. Sir Nicholas Dixon and first recoreded shortly before his death in 1448.

The family crest is a lion rampant having in his arm dexter a Fleur-de-Lys. The single Fleur-de-Lysis and Chief Ermine are reported to have been granted to the family for their services to the crown in the French Wars.

The family motto, Auxilium Meum ab Alto roughly translates as “I do everything to the best of my ability” or “Everything to the highest standard”.

The black background is unique to Sir Nicholas but can also be seen in versions of blue and red.
