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 .

The church was founded in 1875.
The Chapel was demolished and the congregation moved into the adjacent former school (also merging with Trinity Methodists) in 1977.

I was christened at Rosemount and took part in a few pantomimes there in the late 1960's. I would love to see any photos of these.

I'm glad to report that the church is still going strong.

As a Methodist Local Preacher, I've taken services at Rosemount on several occasions in the recent past. It's a wonderful place with lovely people who are so kind and welcoming. The worship centre is now a multi-purpose building with lots of groups meeting during the week, in addition to the two Sunday services. I remember the old chapel very well; it stood to the right of the present building and, if I remember rightly, a little further back in line. One of the stained glass windows from it is retained in the present building.

Rosemount became Rosemount Trinity on the closure of Trinity Methodist Church, Talbot Road, when most of the Talbot Road folk moved down.

Margaret from Vancouver. The pictures of Rosemount brought back memories of my school days at Flowery Field Secondary (1957-1961). I guess we had out grown the school and used rooms in both Rosemount and St. Stephen's church. I remember we were march quickly over to Rosemount by Mrs. Noble so that we didn't miss too much lesson time. coming back we were the ones in a hurry because we were missing break time.
