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 .

The Commercial Pub

Here is another fine photograph sent to us by Stephen Burton.

The photograph shows his grandfather in a group of men outside the Commercial public house on the corner of Commercial Brow and Bottom Street. 

I see the landlords name is William Bradley. I wonder if he is any relation to Joshua Bradley?

 As before I have put a thumbnail on so a bigger picture can be seen. Press the thumbnail to go to photobucket, then press the photo in photobucket to see the larger image.



Many thanks, Stephen :)

Thanks Paul, it makes dating the photo a bit easier knowing that !
