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 .

Donated Book

Photobucket

Some people can be so kind... one such person is Graham Sharp a Hydonian who now lives in Canada, Graham as sent in many pictures and memories which we have been pleased to use. Last week he offered us this book and sent it to us so we could gleam some very useful information about how old Hattersley looked before the estate was built. On behalf of the team, Nancy, Dave, myself and of course all our readers I would like to thank Graham for his generosity and thoughtfulness.

Here's Graham with his first son, Duncan, taken in 1958 in the same location on Pudding Lane. At that time the family home was on Shepley Street and Pudding Lane was one of their favourite Sunday afternoon walks with the pram.
