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 .

We've been contact by Brian Ainscough who read Jeffrey Stafford's article about Andrew & Atkinson and other Hyde brewers. Brian is hoping someone might be able to help him with information about a bottle he found near the site of Marple Hall earlier this year .


Over to Brian for the description "The front of the clear bottle it says BUCKLEY & HOLLAND CHEAPSIDE HYDE and there is a trade mark which looks like a hat with a bridge on the top! On the back it says REDFEARN BROS MAKERS BARNSLEY. It also has B&H on the base. I'm new to bottles but I think this one was a Codd type. I said 'was' because the top part is missing unfortunately."


Brian found Buckley & Holland listed as mineral water manufacturers in Cheshire directories from 1896 to 1906 but he's not been able to find any references to Buckley & Holland on bottle collecting internet sites.
Any information would be much appreciated.
