    This most interesting surname is a variant of "Hide", which has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be a topographical surname for the "holder of a hide", which described someone who lived on and farmed a piece of land originally named as a "hide of land" from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hi(gi)d". A hide was quite a substantial amount for those days, varying from sixty to one hundred and twenty acres. It seems to have been originally fixed as the amount of land necessary to support one extended family, as the Olde English word for a household, "higan", would seem to suggest a common etymology with "hi(gi)d". The name may also be a variant of the personal feminine name "Ida", with the inorganic "h" usually added to names beginning with a vowel. Avice atte Hyde was recorded in 1296 in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex. Interesting namebearers include Edward Hyde (1609 - 1674), first earl of Clarendon, who was a supporter of Charles 1 and became secretary of state, lord chancellor and chief advisor to Charles 11 at the Restoration. Edward Hyde, Esq. popularly known as Lord Cornbury, was appointed Captain General and Governor-in-Chief of New York in 1701. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Robert de la Hyda, which was dated 1188, in the "Pipe Rolls of Dorset", during the reign of King Henry 11, known as "The Builder of Churches", 1154 - 1189. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling

  • Notes 
    • Samuel Hyde and his Wife came to Norwich in 1660. Their eldest daughter Elizabeth, born in August of that year, was the first white child born in Norwich. He was a Farmer and had lands assigned to him at Norwich West Farms where he died in 1677?, at the age of 40 years. And John Birchard became the guardian of his children, who were all minors at that time. The date of his Wife's death is not ascertained. This was taken from Hyde Genealogy, or the Descendants in the Female as well as the Male Lines from William Hyde of Norwich and there is some conflicts on this information.

      Norwich was settled in 1660. The 35 original proprietors of that town were William Hyde, and his son, Samuel Hyde, and his son-in-law, John Pos

      The five sons of Samuel, I, had forty children, of whom twenty-five were sons and reared families. This accounts for the rapidity with which the name spread through the. In 1779, there were upwards of twenty families of Hyde's, numbering over one hundred and fifty members, in the town Plot and western part of Norwich, and notwithstanding the removals to other parts of the country, the census in 1791 records thirteen families of the name in Franklin and eight others in Norwich. The Hyde's have been pioneers in every generation. As soon as civilization overtook them, some would "move on, " until they were distributed from Maine to California, and from Florida to Puget Sound. No doubt some have made their way to Alaska, not that they avoid civilization, for wherever they settle there is soon seen a Church and a School. The pioneer spirit is as much an inheritance as a love of travel. It is the spirit of progress working out in different ways.

      Glenn Close is Samuel's 8th great granddaughter,
