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 .

Hyde Chapel, Choir Sermons, 1939


Hopefully this will be of interest to some... Hyde Chapel holds many memories to some that look in on here I know... I grew up looking at it most days while to and from Enfield Street school and then later in life sat across from it on the Grapes Bench.


This is also the first thing I have come across that was printed by Cartwright & Rattray Ltd, Caxton Press Hyde... The building as only recently been pulled down... it was a cracking building with some stunning features to it. I must do a post about this company and the building..... as always if you have pictures or info we could show here .... please get in touch. Gerald England from Hyde Daily Photo has a series of posts showing
Caxton Mill being demolished... well worth looking at.
