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 .

A picture taken on Travis Street in the late 1920's.
My Auntie is shown far right. She still lives in Hyde at the good old age of 93 !

This picture is of 69 Travis Street  in , I believe, the 1940's with various members of the Etchells family  + friends.

69 Travis Street no longer stands. It is a small garden now. The alley way on the photo is still there though as can be seen on the photo below..

The Etchells lived at number 69 Travis Street. The Worthingtons lived, if I remember correctly, next door to the Heskeths on the other side of the ginnel.

That's a nice northern word - ginnel. Try to explain what a ginnel is to someone from the south. Goodnight Nancy.

Hydonian is correct I'm sure, My memories of the street include my friend from scouting days Harry Snelson,he introduced me to my wife and came to Canada also, Arthur and Nellie Nield, Nelly visited in us in Canada.I found Nelson street an awfully windy journey the many times I walked home to Gee Cross.
