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 .

50 children in one class, teachers today wouldn't know what's hit them. At Greenfield Miss Marlor had two registers with the names of sixty children.
