Building contractor. Thomas Dixon, who was born in Yorkshire, came to Ireland in May 1867 to work on the completion of the Parsonstown and Portumna railway line, after which he was engaged on arterial drainage schemes. During thirty-five years in Ireland he was involved in the construction of many piers and harbours and of four batteries at Berehaven, Co. Cork, his last and most important Irish contract. He left Ireland in 1902 to work on the construction of a tram system in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
