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 .

The "Moulders' Arms" in the first advert is now, of course, "Flanagans" or "Flannagans" depending on whether you read the sign above the door, or the one on the wall above it.
