    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 
    • Andrew (6) Hyde (Andrew (5), Elijah (4), Samuel (3), Samuel (2), William (1)), was the son of Andrew (5) and Hannah Thomas Hyde. He was born Sept. 15, 1757 at Norwich, Conn. He died July 11, 1845 and is buried in the cemetery at Claridon, Ohio, where his grave has been marked by the D.A.R. He married Rebecca Galpin, daughter of Caleb and Eunice Lee Galpin of Stockbridge, Mass. (Caleb Galpin was the son of Caleb Galpin of Berlin, Conn. who married Elizabeth Baldwin and grandson of Samuel and Elizabeth St. John Galpin. Samuel was the son of Philip Galpin of New Haven.) Rebecca Galpin was born Nov. 30, 1759. She died Jan. 12, 1830 and is buried in the Old Town House burial ground at Cheshire, Ohio. In the same cemetery are buried Salma Hyde and Eunice Hyde Benton, son and daughter of Andrew and Rebecca Hyde.

      Andrew Hyde removed with his father to Lenox, Mass. From there he served in the American Revolution. His record given in "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Revolution" is as follows: Andrew Hyde, Private, Capt. Charles Dibble's Co., Col. Rosseter's (3d Berkshire Co.) regt.; enlisted Oct. 14, 1780; discharged Oct. 17, 1780; service 3 days; mileage out and home (80 miles) allowed; company marched on the alarm at the Northward of Oct. 14, 1780. Andrew Hide, Fifer, Capt. Josiah Yale's Co.; entered service Oct. 12, 1781; discharged Oct. 20, 1781; service 12 days; milage out and home (160 miles) allowed; company marched from Lee and Lenox to Stillwater by order of Brig. Gen. Rosseter on an alarm.

      Andrew Hyde was a weaver by trade. He continued to live at Lenox, O. (sic) until he joined others of his neighborhood in their migration to Ohio. From letters in the possession of Mrs. Dale Aye Smiley, it seems that Andrew Hyde spent some time in Northeastern Ohio with friends and relatives who had come ahead. He traveled among the early pioneer settlements working at his weavers trade and looking the country over before going back to Lenox to bring his family. When the final move was made, they went direct to Delaware County. They came in a wagon train and Mrs. Smiley has the chair in which Andrew's wife Rebecca sat as she rode in the wagon. Rebecca Hyde Aye used to tell how they camped so close to Niagara Falls that they could hear the roar of the water. She had heard of the falls and wanted to stop and see them but the others were too eager to reach the new settlement to stop to see the wonders of Nature.

      After the death of his wife Rebecca, Andrew Hyde moved north twenty-seven miles to the New Purchase, as they called it. His daughter Rebecca and her husband, Jacob Aye, joined the new settlers there. Andrew Hyde had his cabin in the same yard with the Ayes and his sister, Parthenia Holt lived with him. They continued to live there until their deaths.
