We recently received this postcard from Elsie who wondered where this splendid house was/is ? She isn't even sure whether it's appertaining to "our" Hyde.
It looks awfully grand.
Has anyone got any ideas ?
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 .
