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 .

Adverts from 1900

Below are three adverts taken from the Hyde Wesleyan Methodist Church "Eastern Bazaar" Official Handbook.

The Eastern Bazaar was held at The Mechanics Hall  from Thursday Feb 28th through to Saturday March 2nd 1900.
It was a huge event for its day that was extremely popular by all accounts !
