Hope all these are right- I feel they are though.
Thought I couldn't find him but he is entered as Dixson

1851 HO107; Piece: 2250; Folio: 15; Page: 23
High Street Haslingden
Peter Dixson 26 yrs Joiner Brewer b Blackburn
Margret Dixson 22 yrs Cotton Weaver b Accrington

I can't spot a marriage which would really fit  :-\

Now I looked at Lancashire OPC - http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/
for any relevant Dixons- not much help but there was a birth for a Peter -father Pickup Dixon.
However there is a birth 1851 for an Adam Pickup Dixon so there may well be a connection. Death on Free BMD- 1868

1841 HO107; Piece 506; Book: 5; Folio: 13; Page: 20
Water Street or Taylor's Row Haslingden

Pickup Dixon 40 yrs shoemaker
Ellen Dixon 40 yrs
Peter Dixon 17 yrs
John Dixon 15 yrs
Michael Cunliffe 13 yrs

1851 HO107; Piece: 2250; Folio: 420; Page: 20

Water Street

Pickup Dixon 57 yrs Shoemaker
Ellen Dixon 58 yrs
Michael Cunliff Dixon 23 yrs Cotton Weaver
all born Accrington

According to Lancashire OPC- Pickup married Ellen Ashton  :D
