Hi Martin, My brother and I are researching our family and when we found the village of upper and lower Dicker in sussex near Hailsham and the Michelham Priory say that they think that the name came from the Romans and refers to an area of waste land or an area of 10 like allotments given to retired Roman soldiers.
Can you help us with anything on a Charles Dicker born 1861 and married Lucy Elizabeth Channell born 21/12/1865 on the 4/03/1893 or any other Dickers in the Surrey area.
Thanks Chris Dicker
