Nathaniel Dickinson (1600/1601-1676) was a leading personage in colonial New England. Some arguments have been made that his ancestry was, accidentally or purposefully, embellished by Frederick Dickinson. More research needs to be done. (Though, if you are a close relative looking for esteemed ancestry, you will find it in other branches.) Wikipedia has a nice article on Nathaniel Dickinson here. The Dickinson Family Association site is here.
