    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

    • Elijah Hyde was born January 20, 1754 at Norwich "West Farms" (now Franklin), New London, Connecticut, the 1st of 7 children born of Jacob Hyde (1730-1815) and his wife, Hannah (Hazen) Hyde (1729-1809). Elijah moved with his parents to Bennington on the New Hampshire Grants (now Vermont) about 1766.

      Tradition has it that Elijah participated in the Battle of Bennington, August 1777. He served as a Corporal in Captain William Hutchin's (2nd Bennington) Company, Colonel Samuel Herrick's Vermont Militia Regiment commencing October 11, 1780 for 18 days during the alarm caused by the raid led by British Major Christopher Carleton into the Lake Champlain Valley and beyond. Elijah was also a Sergeant in Captain Isaac Tichenor's (2nd Bennington) Company, Colonel Ebenezer Walbridge's Vermont Militia Regiment commencing October 13, 1781 for 16 days. During this period of service, Captain Tichenor's Company was posted at Castleton (Fort Warren), Rutland, Vermont.

      Elijah married, about 1781, his 4th cousin Elizabeth (Betsey) Edgerton (1764-1797) then of Pawlet, Rutland, Vermont by whom he had 8 children: Alexander (1782-1843), Jacob (1785-1787), Lois (b. 1787), Jonathan (b. 1789), Williard G. (b. 1792), Charles (1794-1795), Mary (b. 1796), and Elizabeth (b. 1797). Their first 3 children were born in Bennington, Vermont. Their last 5 children were born in South Hero (now Grand Isle), Vermont.
