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 .

St George's School

In June this year we showed some drawings and photographs of the old St George's School. When I was at St George's during the National Heritage Weekend in September there was a souvenir booklet on display about a reunion of scholars on 15 September 1906.
I photographed a couple of pages in this booklet which show two more photographs of the school and expand the information I gave in the previous post.

Wish we had names of the pupils in early 1900s. My dad's family went there around that time.
