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 .

Talbot House Great Norbury Street





Talbot House is on Great Norbury Street... it is this building which had the stables which is accessed from Chapel street. Dave took these picture for us again, as the building is of interest. If you know anything about it's past please let us know.. especially the Coat Of Arms. I have tried finding reference to this but drew a blank.

I think the coat of arms is pretty similar to that of the Somers-Cocks family, which included various barons, viscounts, etc. An image of their arms can be found here: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=65570

I can't find any obvious link between them and Hyde though, so it could belong to someone completely unrelated.

Hello and welcome to our blog Paul... that link seems to be as close a match as any... and I can have a look at the site as well... very interesting.
Thank you Paul.
