  • Notes 
    • Lady Florence Caroline Dixie (24 May 1855 7 November 1905) was a British traveller, war correspondent, writer and feminist.

      Dixie was a sister of the 9th Marquess of Queensberry, who gave his name to the rules of boxing and who brought down Oscar Wilde.

      Lady Florence Dixie (and twin sister of Lord James), created a sensation in April 1883 when she claimed she had been kidnapped by Irish agitators - see under the Dixie baronetcy for further details.
