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 .

just before the pile of rubble on the right hand side was Bowker Street, and there was a general store run by two sisters called Nellies,
also at no 1 Spring Street which is in front of me was a public house but I don't remember this before my time,I was born at no 9 just behind me then move to no 1 where our Father bought us a full size snooker table to put in the front room, which was to keep us out of trouble, but that didn't work.
