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 .

Excellent post Paul... I was never in the scouts but I recall a few of my friends went.
I was looking through some old school photographs with my mother many years ago now.. and I noticed I had a scouts jumper on, complete with badges. I said to my mum I was never in the scouts.. she laughed and said " No Tom you weren't, but Eddie Piper from Farm Lane was and his mother used to pass his old clothes on to you."

Oops, banana fingers, that was Mr HAMPSON. He lived on Talbot Rd, Newton in the house next to Myalls Cake shop, 2 doors up from my Grandads Chippy.
