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 .

Hyde Wesleyan Cricket Club

Hyde Wesleyan CC played their cricket at Barmhouses, Godley before disbanding in 1934.

The ground and most of their equipment was purchased by Newton CC who have now been based at Barmhouses for around 78 years.
A number of the Wesleyan players opted to play for Newton, and those I recognize on the photo are Bill Critchlow (4th from right back row) ,

I think Arthur Bent is (2nd from right back row) and Joe Price ( Extreme left front row)

Does anyone know any other cricketers on the photo ?



Thanks to Colin Critchlow for sending us this cutting ! :)
