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 .

When we were kids we used to play in the isolation hospital. Most likely because we were told not to go anywhere near.There was this man who used to live in the building when it was derelict he was called Sid, we used to taunt him but if the truth was known he frightened us to death.
