Born British subject in India to Brittania McArthur, real name Ann Goddard.

Daughter of Thomas McArthur and Brittania McArthur real names Thomas Arthur VC and Ann Goddard (c1833-1915).

Agnes Phoebe McArthur was born circa 1872 in India to Thomas Arthur (c1835-1902) and Ann Goddard (c1833-1915) . She married Ernest Charles Dickson (c1876-c1955) . Ancestors are from the United Kingdom.

Not much is currently known about this side of the family; it is however interesting to note that Roger Savernake Dickson (the son of Agnes) was given the middle name 'Savernake' which is where in 1902 his grandfather Thomas McArthur (1835-1902) was buried; the site of the gravestone in Savernake is now in private ownership.

Roger Savernake Dickson immigrated to America at the age of 46 in 1952; he was an aeronautical engineer in the Super marine and later at Lockheed in the USA.
