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 .

Is it no longer Hoviley then? Having seen the sign I presumed the last 100 yards or so still was!?!

The latest A-Z which I have with the M67 on it is dated 1993, and it does show the first little stretch alongside the motorway as 'Hoviley'. The sign for A Brunnschweiler on the second photo here, however, shows the address as 'Commercial Street'.
