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 .

After a hard shift in the mill the local Spinners and other workers would make use of the many pubs to quench their thirsts... and I suppose there was none as welcome to them as the one below.

Some were practical, of course, but others were psychological and
emotional. At the end of each round read out the cumulative scores.

My granddad was Norman Arthur Owen who worked as a foreman (I think) at Ashton Brothers in Hyde. My Grandma, Edith Martha Francisca (nee Nolte), also worked there and my Dad, Richard Stuart, was an apprentice there. When Courthaulds bought the company, Norman became General Manager at the new mill in LillyHall, Workington. I have some photos but they are at my Mum's house (not near me) so it may be a few months before I get to scan them in for you. If there are a group of people on the photo then are you allowed to publish them still as I don't know who most of them are so can't ask permission? If anyone knew any of my above mentioned relatives then please let me know. Alexandra
