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 .

Hoviley farm

Below is an excerpt taken from Thomas Middletons'
"History of Hyde".

It talks of Hoviley Farm, which I once believed to be the buildings on the map below marked by a cross and next to plot number 59.
I have recently been told it was at the opposite end of Hoviley Brow so am now looking for clarification on where it was located.

I have never come across any more information or photographs of this farm. If anyone knows anything about it please dont hesitate to get in touch with us at hydonian@gmail.com and we will add the info to this post!

Thank you !
