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 pictures again from Barry
Derek Morley on the back row was a good friend of mine, and worked with me for a while on the Door at Lowry's.... Just by chance Derek's sister Gillian called round and was thrilled to see this... I have been able to print the picture out for her and she as asked me to pass her thanks on to Barry.. Alas Derek passed away a few years back now... but he is still well remembered around Newton and of course Hyde itself.

Barry again, I have just remembered, This team was actually a House team. We had four 'Houses' at FF, they were Ashton, Nightingale, Shakespeare and Livingstone. This was the Shakespeare team that won the shield that year.
