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 .

Fantastic stuff...
I went into the building that is on the corner of Edna and Henry Street in the 1980s, it was then an engineering work-shop and it might still be. In side were still traces of the Grammar School and the old chap who took my order was more than pleased to be able to point them out. There was a row coat pegs, a cupboard, but the best was the 'school masters desk' which was still used daily.
My oldest brother went to Hyde Grammar and I recall going to sports days that were held on the 'big field'.

Schools are a great source of names to research. "What ever happened to . . . .". I try to locate old school friends from time to time. It is easier to ask my friend Lynne, who has always lived in the old neighbourhood (except for the three years she lived in Yorkshire, England) and seem to know everyone we went to school with.

History of Hyde Grammar
Lacks a reference to Jack Grundy the latin teacher in the 1930s who gave his name to the pupil he married Katherine Grundy, who became Lady Mayoress and of whose murder Harold Shipman was originally charged
