The History of St Georges Church
Here is a brief history of St Georges Church as found in the Annals of Hyde which was written by Thomas Middleton.
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 .
