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 .

I'm not convinced this is Holy Trinity. The boy on the left is holding a 2nd Hyde flag which is probably St George's, and the church door and archway behind the boys don't resemble those at Holy Trinity.

Hi Werneth Low... I see I might have to rename this post... I'll drop Fred an email and see what he says.

Hi Tom I did say that this was St. Georges scout troop and the lad holding the Union flag in centre of back row is my cousin Neville Massey.

St Georges Scout Group is 4th Hyde
Holy Trinity is 3rd Gee Cross
The only 2nd Hyde Group I can see is Westleyen Chapel on Water Street or Norfolk Street and thar seems to have closed in 1938

This is 4th Hyde (St Georges) cub pack, probably about 1940. Phil Kindlisides was Akela and he is seated in the biddle. The cub on the extreme right is Derek Sowter.
