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 .

Flowery Field School Class Photograph 1929

                    


Photobucket


David Stafford contacted us and wondered if we would like to show this picture...  I wrote right back saying yes of course... pictures such as this are perfect for us. 
David says:

"A picture of a class from Flowery Field school on Well Meadow. Class standard 6 May 1929.  My aunty is in the picture, she is on the second row up from the bottom, second from the right. Her name was May Slater lived at the paper shop on Ashton Road Facing the old Hyde Spinning Company later Senior Service factory. Her married name is May Smith she is still fit and well living in Hyde. Has anyone got any relative in the picture?"

Thanks
David Stafford
