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 .

Green End Farm

The following description comes from the History Of Hyde.
I don't know of any photos that exist of this farm.

"Green End Farm, a picturesque old place, stood in Grafton Street, and part of it's land sloped steeply into Wilson Brook...."

A 1970's aeriel view shows the area the farm stood in to the top right. George Street runs along the bottom whilst Newton Street (pre motorway) goes from top to bottom.


Thanks to Cheshire Archives for the maps.

Green End Farm raises an interesting question. This farm was very close to what is now the centre of Hyde, but were there any farms even closer to the centre?
