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 Reporter 'Cutting 1'


This is a cutting from the Reporter... it was titled as..
 'A Soldiers Life'
Guns at the ready, Hyde men of the Cheshire Regiment are pictured at camp during the First World War. If you can name the soldiers or have any details, contact the Reporter Group at 167 Market Street, Hyde.

Well, the office on Market Street is long gone.. and I wonder if any details came in.
