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 .

More memories from Bill

More photos from Bill Crompton with descriptions.

"One with my Father on the said Hyde Hall Farm. You can see the gas holder behind. 1951/2 and one on Horseback.
There is also a colour photo of a group of Hyde lads on a night out I am sure they will be recognised,I am the one furthermost away. 1966
Another picture showing myself and a mate sat on some stone in Hyde park 1965.
The last one is of myself taking part on the whit walks, the 1950s on Great Norbury Street."






As always, thanks to Bill for sharing.
Without your generosity there would be no Hyde blog :)
