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 .

Hyde Chapel - Rose Queen 1959

The lovely photos below were sent to us by Ann Bacon nee Stafford.
They show her time as Rose Queen at Hyde Chapel in 1959.

How beautiful she looks !
I should imagine most girls wanted to be crowned Rose Queen.
