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 .

Tom Marsden Remembered

We recently showed a great picture of a pair of bikers from Flowery Field, the picture was sent in by Roger... We were lucky as Roger also asked if we would be interested in these pictures of Tom Marsden...

We were more than pleased to show them.. and thought they would make the perfect post for Remembrance  Sunday.. I'm sure we will all have someone to think back on today.. and wherever you are, and whoever you are remembering may this day be a peaceful one for you.

I was able to send Roger a bit of information from the Hyde At War book as Tom Marsden was mentioned.. Roger said  Tom would have hated leaving for Southampton on that particular day,  Oct 6th as the following day was his daughter's birthday, she would have only been  3 or 4.
