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 .

Janet Palfreyman used to live on Sykes St. when I did. She was my childhood first love.

Well, Peter, what a treat this is for me. I would say that this is the class of either 1960 or 61. I wonder if you remember the Reunion which we had at the school in August 2002, as quite a few of the names in your picture appear in the register which everyone signed on that day - including yours if you are Peter Simpson of South Wales (or you were). Other people in the book who are on your photo are: David Hall, Tony Husband, Daryl Booth.

I left HT in 1956 but I knew a lot of your year, possibly because they had older siblings. Amongst them were Peter Rowland, Gillian Hannam, Denis Jack, Mandy Pickup, Janet Palfreyman and Sheila Titterington.

There is now a Facebook,page for Gee Cross Holy Trinity (C of E) Primary School. You,may be interested in joining and you could certainly upload your photos there. It would be good to swell the numbers a bit!
