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, Lincoln Delve I know, and I believe Trevor Grimshaw moved to Floweryfield secondary. Some faces are familiar, I used to play footy against them.
