Origin of the Name Nixon

The Nixon family history was found in the archives. Meaning 'the son of Nicholas', Nixon is a baptismal name with several variants including Nickson, Nixson and Nix. This name is of Anglo-Celtic origin and is found throughout England , Ireland , Scotland and Wales. It is recorded in many mediaeval manuscripts. Examples of such are a Henry Nix, Oxford, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Margareta Nikeson, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Scotland the name is recorded in 1376 in the person of William Nycson who was occupying lands in the district of Ermyldoune in Liddesdale. In Ireland the Nixons are most numerous in Ulster where the most notable family were settled in Fermanagh in 1609. Fifty years later the name Nixson is listed in the 'Petty Census' as a principal name in the baronies of that County. Nixon also became well established in County Wexford.
The Nixon coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Nixon descendants.
