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 Grammar 1958/9

 We recently received the following photograph and message off Brian Ainsough...

"Seeing an old friend, Derek Booth, on the photo entitled "St. Mary's 1957" 
reminded me that I had one taken during my first year at Hyde Grammar 
(1958/9) by our form teacher Mr Hooley. I can't remember many of my 
classmates' names now but I'm sitting at the far right on the front row..."

Thanks very much for sending it to us, Brian :)

Barry in Oz here. Brian, I am still in touch with Derek. After a stellar career in the RAF as a combat photographer he has now retired and is moving to Gibralter to live.
