Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Post Card From
Hyde

Post Card Of Hyde
...
This is a new venture by two Hydonians Nancy and Tom, hopefully over time we will be joined by others who have pictures and stories to tell. Maybe you no longer live in Hyde.... or the UK and now and then feel a tad homesick.... well here's a place just for you to refresh memories, see long forgotten sights, and hear the odd name mentioned... Please feel free to contact us if there's anything you think we could help with concerning Hyde.
If you have any pictures, stories, memories, or items from or about Hyde and you would like to share them here with other like minded Hydonians please get in touch with us. Either leave us a comment or even better email us: hydonian@gmail.com

Congratulations and best wishes for the new site Tom and Nancy.

Tom said...

Hello Ex Hydeonian
Glad you could pop in and have a look around... just let us know if there is a certain photo or place you would like to see... all the best now

Hydonian said...

Thanks Everyone, for your kind comments regarding the site.

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

Hi Linda
