The Dickin family were what used to be known as landed gentry and appear in Burke's Dictionary of Landed Gentry with entries for the family going back to the mid-17th century. They seem to have lived in the Parish of Wem and also in the nearby village of Loppington. This pub seems to have been named after the family. Interestingly there is still a pub called the Dickin Arms in Loppington. These appear to be the only two pubs in the country with this name.
