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 .

Goodier House, Victoria Street, Newton


At last....The Goodiers.
This post is for Barry Lewis














Alas this post is my last, I will no longer be posting or having anything to do with the daily running of this blog. I have enjoyed being a part of it from the start, but feel I can no longer give to it my time or effort due to  ongoing health issues. Thank you to all who I have had contact with and have helped and supported me, I wish you all well.
Tom

The Goodiers, not far from the soldier statue on the corner of Cartwright Street and Victoria Street, is not the Goodier House Barry in Oz keeps harking on about. Goodier House, in which Daniel Adamson and his family lived for a short time, stood just off the bottom end of Victoria Street, behind the Duke of Sussex. The Goodiers stood in an entirely different location, and if it was still standing would today be in the vicinity of Welch Road.

I'm very sad to hear that Tom won't be involved in the future.

I'd like to publicly put on record my thanks and appreciation for a very good job - unpaid, sometimes unthanked, but always in my opinion done well!

I for one will miss his daily posts and I hope that this doesn't herald the end of the Hydonian blogspot.

Sorry to hear about your health problems Tom, I hope that you get them sorted. Look after yourself.

And thanks again. Bill

Well Tom, I for one don't think you should retire.The blog keeps you going and is something that you should look forward to doing every day. Give up, and you'll be dead within a year.

Thank you for you contributions to this blog, and for the time you have taken to share the interesting stories and history of Hyde, the surrounding area and its people.

Ferguson retiring and now you Tom, becoming a very flat year this. Hopefully next spring/ early summer you may feel re-charged enough to do another season. After all the commitment you have put into this invaluable blog hope it doesn't just fade away...people of Hyde have been spoilt really, not many other towns have a facility like this....

Historian said...

Thanks for all your work on the blog, Tom. Though I now live thirty miles away it has been a daily delight to extend my knowledge and keep my interest in Hyde alive. Shalom.

Please can someone tell us whether this is the end of the Blog? It's really too valuable to lose.

Hydonian said...

Hi, I am still trying to keep the blog going, myself, in some capacity, Werneth Low. Tom very kindly took over from me the past 2 months due to my own health issues and very dodgy computer !!
I am sure this wont be the end of Toms contributions to our blog though - you cant keep a good man down. :)
I will endeavour to keep the blog going although it may not be daily for a while.
Thanks for everyone who has contributed or even just taken the time to read it - It makes it all worthwhile.
