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 .

Thomas Middleton

My copy of 'The History of Hyde' is one which I inherited from my late father, and on the flyleaf is pasted this cutting from, presumably, the North Cheshire Herald. There's no date on it and I can't find the date of Thomas Middleton's death, but it was obviously some time after 1950.


I notice that the photo is credited to Searle's who also took the photograph of the 1904/05 Mayor of Hyde, John Blackwell, as shown in a recent post.
