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 .

Holy Trinity Church (Updated)

Holy Trinity Church on Higham Lane in Gee Cross was founded in 1874 as a chapel to St George, becoming the parish church for parts of Hyde and Werneth in 1880. It was built by Medland and Henry Taylor,who were Manchester architects of great repute, with the tower being added in 1903.

The church was built in the early English style at a cost of £2,500. It is a handsome stone erection, consisting of chancel, nave, transept, and organ chamber, with a spire and belfry, containing one bell. The church contains about 300 free sittings. Its earliest clergy were the Rev. Thomas Burke, B.A., and the Rev. Thomas George Williams.
