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 .

hello everyone - eileen from bolton here.
the wigley family went to enfield street school from 1953 - 1970. lovely memories of the infants room, nice and colourful, alphabet letters on posters, chalk boards, water and sand to play in, jack and jill books, a rocking horse, jolly teachers and a brilliant range of toys i'd never seen before.
miss woodward retired about 1960 and the other teacher in the picture looks like mrs lucas only alot older.
i remember my first day at school, i cried for my mum for ages. miss woodward asked me my name but i was too shy to talk to her, i was too shy to talk to anyone. eventually a little boy called martin made freinds with me. i remember he was much smaller than me but he looked after me and he fastened my coat up at home time. he used to talk for me! after a week he got me talking to him but i remained acutely shy of other people for years.

I remember Marlene Warrington named on this photo. When she was older she had a really beautiful singing voice and won many prizes in musical festivals, as well as appearing in Hyde Chapel pantomime. I think she lived in Frogmore Avenue. She gave a lot of pleasure to a lot of people.

Like Eileen from Bolton, I thought the teacher on the left was Mrs Lucas. I think she gave piano lessons and her daughter, Brenda, was married to John Ogdon, the concert pianist.

Two years ago I visited Hyde with a grand son, At the Gee Cross Well Dressing I met Marlene Warrington, I hadn't seen her for 50 years, When we were young she lived about four houses from us on Apethorn Lane.
