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 .

Thanks again. Thomas Carter Beeley and his daughter, Dorothy Adamson, look so alike. I'll look out a photo of her and see if Nancy will post it.

Wasn't all laughter and happiness in these stately homes, Bowlacre and Pole Bank. Dorothy Adamson (nee Beeley) born 1897 would have been 12yrs when her father died, her grandfather having died the previous year. Have left you some details on how to get more information on her on the other Thomas Beeley comments section.

Interesting info on The Gardens Hyde Junction, Dave Davies and now I know exact location of the Beeley factory. From where they lived in the Pole Bank/Bowlacre area they could have strolled down to Woodley station (about half a mile) hopped on the steamer which would then deliver them right outside the factory gates at Hyde North station
