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 .

Barry in Oz here. Looking at my classmates you wonder how they fared in life. I know that 4 of them migrated to Oz and one is shortly moving to live in Gibralter. Of the ones I know, One runs a Pub in Floweryfield, One became a wealthy Chartered Accountant and now lives near Windsor, one became a Senior Police Officer and SWAT operator in Oz, one became a professional diver and also played football for Australia, one is a successful builder in Newton, one is a Teacher and resides in the IOW, two married rich husbands, and one became an Air combat photographer in the RAF and ended up as a Squadron Leader. I wonder what happened to the rest of them ? Whatever they did I hope they were happy in doing what they did, success is fine, but happy is really important.

I came across this blog totally by accident, but wanted to comment.
Graham Dootson is my father-in-law and he lives in Alberta, Canada.

I've had a little chuckle at the pictures, and I'm learning a great deal about Hyde.

Thanks!
