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 .

Zion whit walks

Here is a photograph showing the Whit walks circa 1966. 

More specifically it shows the Zion Congregational group of walkers including yours truly and my sister standing outside Middletons shop on Market Street.:) There are many old familiar faces on here... including the lady to the right who was a much loved teacher at Zion Sunday School called Gladys. Another favourite was Margaret who can be seen to the back of the group.

I knew Russell Hamer years ago but can't identify him on the photo. Which one is him? He used to go out with my sister.

I have this photo somewhere. The lady on the right is Gladys Hodgson and the young lady back left is my oldest, dearest friend in the whole world, Margaret Gilson. Gladys is no longer with us, but Margaret is now working her socks off at Holy Trinity!
