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 .

So nice to be able to bring you a result from the previous newspaper article about George Wain. Nice to see that some of his former pupils got their work back !

Thanks to Tom Uprichard for sending us the clip.

I remember going to George's house on Dowson Rd for my Cubs badge in art. ( I was in the 4th Hyde St George's) I remember making a plasticine model of an elephant. I passed and got my badge plus George treated me to a slice of chocolate cake. Result! This was in 1965.
