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 .

Gee Cross League Of Help
Can You Help?
We have had a request for help... and as always we will try to give it where we can. Do you have any information about this badge. The request is from Susan who as in the past sent in some pictures and commented many times. This is what she says:
I'm attaching a photo of a badge which I've had in my possession for longer than I care to remember. What I don't know is where it came from or what it represented. Can you do a post on it to see if it jogs anyone's memory.
If you have an item which seems to relate to Hyde and you would like information please send in a picture if possible and we will do a post like this asking for assistance and information.
If you have any pictures, stories, memories, or items from or about Hyde and you would like to share them here with other like minded Hydonians please get in touch with us. Either leave us a comment or even better email us:
Tom, Dave, Paul and I would like to say thank you to everyone for contributing to this blog in some small way - even if that means just reading it! It's been more of a success than we could ever have dreamt of and that's all down to you ! It was our intention to get Hyde "on the record" as it were and it seems to be heading in the right direction. We are very proud of Hyde and would like it's history to live on!
