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 .

Unknown Hydonian

I find it sad when pictures like this come to light, nothing written on the back, no name or date. He looks a very distinguished gentleman.. sat here at 'Beales Bro's Clarendon Place. I'm sure there must be many many more pictures out there in the back of a drawer, the sitter now long gone and maybe through time their name forgotten.. if you think you have any such pictures as this maybe we could start a collection of them... if nothing else it shows the fashions off, and being displayed here will keep them from being lost and forgotten for evermore.
