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 .

Love the pictures ,Tom - did you take any of Crosscliffe whilst you were down there? I used to have a friend that lived down there in one of the cottages.They look lovely painted pastel colours. :)
