  • From William (Bill) Hyde on Hyde/Hide William ( ?? -1681) - Norwich, CT

    Some time ago a hope was expressed on this site that someone might visit the Connecticut State Library to search their files. I am planning a trip there for later this summer which at this moment is tentative but intended. I note from the library’s web site they have a file explicitly for “Hyde.” If anyone is aware of other resources in the area that might be productive, would appreciate hearing about them.

      Bill, you’re probably looking at the same link that I am, here https://ctstatelibrary.org/RG074_054.html What I would recommend is calling them in advance and letting them know when you’re planning to come and the files that you would like to look through. Ask if you can bring a smartphone or digital camera, as this can save you a small fortune on copying fees. From what I can tell, most of the information is going to be about William, but some might be about Humphrey. William and Humphrey are not related, although Humphrey is related by DNA to Jonathan and Samuel of MA (Humphrey’s exact relationship to the two brothers remains uncertain). Some of William’s information is potentially in the Abel file. I’m myself trying to arrange a similar trip to the Rockefeller library in Williamsburg, VA, to complete writeups of the Robert Hyde and Richard Hyde lines of VA. Fortunately the library is about 15 minutes away from Busch Gardens, so the non-genealogists in the family won’t have to suffer too much 😉

    David, I hope you are still looking at this page. I can’t remember if I’ve touched base with you yet, or not! I’m a Benjamin Hyde/Elizabeth Rebecca Leatherwood descendant and I’m trying to get as much info as I can about them and about Betsy Walker. Would love to see what you have, and Tom, would love to read the newsletter with the article about the Hydes, Leatherwoods and Walkers.

    Thank you!

    Hi, I am working on my Hyde family tree, my father was Terry Forest Hyde SR., his father was William Cornelious Harrison Hyde, his father was Cornelious M Hyde ( went my Neal, Nel, etc) and his father was Benjamin A Hyde. I have been gathering old family photos and have some great ones of William CH, still have boxes to go through though. I would love to participate in research on this line and help if possible. My brother, my father and myself all had our DNA done on 23 and Me as well.

    • From Ann Sterling on Hyde Family Lines

      Joan, you probably already know most of what the censuses show. Benjamin Hyde was born circa 1800 in NJ, married Mary J. Fulks/Foulkes in Stark County, Ohio on 19 Jul 1827. She was born in PA 1 Nov 1804, parents James Foulkes and Salome/Saloma. Mary’s parents appear next to the couple on the 1830 Rose Township, Stark (later Carroll) County Ohio census. 1840 census in Lexington, Richland County, Ohio. 1850 census for Bloomfield, Morrow Ohio shows their children, in order: Saloma/Salome, Margaret, James Wesley, Jonathan Nolan, Barbara E, Theodore, Francis, Rhoda A and Samuel. Also gives Benjamin’s profession as a cooper. Note that eldest daughter Salome is married to Oliver H Perry (one of many named after the Commodore) and Benjamin is living with them, most likely because he is ill, as he died not long after.
      &nbsp
      There’s a book on the family of Jonathan Nolan Hyde that you may be able to check out from a library (check Worldcat for availability) or view at your local LDS Family History Center https://familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titledetails&titleno=236289&disp=Jonathan+Nolan+Hyde%2C+1835-1891%2C+Ri According to this page, the book mentions that Benjamin went from NJ to NY, then to Ohio. If the book elaborates on his location in NY, we may be able to connect him with a particular branch of Hydes. Looking at the associated family names there are too many possibilities.
      &nbsp
      It’s curious that there is an Edward Hyde, also a cooper, also born in NJ with wife Hannah born in PA, who is living next door to a Perry family in the 1860 census for Harrison township, Carroll County Ohio (Stark County later became Carroll). He left a will there in 1870, mentions daughter Anilisa and her husband Thomas McCauly, as well as an Emmanuel McCarty. There’s nothing to tie him directly with Benjamin but enough coincidences to merit a closer look.
      &nbsp
      Drop us a line if you find out where/when Benjamin was in NY.

    I wish that we could find a way to give people a “behind the scenes” glimpse as to what’s going on, because it doesn’t seem like much is happening on the website. However, on the back end, the document storage end, there’s a whole lot of activity. Tom “Doc” Hyde has traveled to court houses and local history centers in quite a few states and has put a lot of the puzzle pieces together, and I owe him several emails. For those who are Hyde-Leatherwood descendants, there’s an article coming up about Qaty and Elizabeth Walker which answers the questions that many people have had over the past century, including eligibility to join the Cherokee Nation (yes in some cases but there’s a lot more to it than you think). The time I can spend on this is limited because of things going on with my family that I can’t advertise here, but it’s not about me anyway. Humphrey has been on the back burner for so long in part because I wanted to be sure about the DNA, but we have what we need so there’s no reason not to publish the writeup. Thank you for your patience and let me see what I can do to move things forward.

  • From Ann Sterling on de Hyde, Matthew (c1164-?) - Hyde, Cheshire, England

    Andy, that was a great find – thanks for letting us know! I took a look at that, because Yarmouth was a hotbed of Congregationalism back in the day, *however* that was in the area of what is now Greater Yarmouth, on the eastern coast. The Yarmouth you refer to is on the southern coast and at the time encompassed a chunk of the mainland plus the Isle of Wight. I can’t rule it out. There is one baptismal record with parents William and I think Ann, and this is a different William than the one married to Agnes. What I am having difficulty wrapping my head around is that Agnes had something like eight successful pregnancies from about 1620 onward. That level of success could not be sustained by anyone starting in 1610 or earlier. So if we accept that this could be Jonathan of MA, we have to accept that when Deacon Samuel testified that they were brothers, he might have meant something spiritual rather than genetic, or, in the more likely scenario, that they had different mothers. The biggest problem I have with the listing is that I can’t tell the church or the minister (which in this case means without having to spend money, but since the records for that area don’t officially start until around 1614 this might already be a moot point). Just knowing the minister can make a huge difference.

    I am hoping someone may be able to help with linking a Hyde family line in the Cayman Islands. I have seen a reference of a Joshua perry Hyde m. Rachel Ann Rivers who supposedly were from NC (possibly loyalists)

      Hi Suzanne! My original reply is here, see http://www.hydegenealogy.org/blog/?p=119 and do a search in your browser for “Cayman” to view. Some of the oldest records for the Cayman Islands are held in archives in Great Britain and on Jamaica, but the rest can be found here: http://www.candoo.com/genresources/#CAYMANS I would recommend contacting a researcher there, as what I have seen of the online databases on FamilySearch.org and several of the paid services are too piecemeal to construct anything useful. Tom and I were not able to find a Joshua Hyde in NC in the time period you mention and would need further information to locate his family. There is a Bay Island genealogy list that may be of interest to you as some later family members went there, this and other Caribbean genealogy mailing lists are here: http://www.cyndislist.com/caribbean/social/

  • From Michael C. Vivion on Hide/Hyde North Carolina Project

    Per my family tree database, my 4th great-grandfather was Benjamin Wesley Hyde, Sr (b. 1772-d. 1850) who married Elizabeth Rebecca “Patsy” Leatherwood (b. 1783 – d. 1841) and they lived in Mecklenburg county, NC. HIs wife was reported to have been born a member of a Cherokee tribe in Burke county, NC.
    Their daughter, Mary Suzannah/Susannah Hyde (b. 1799- d. 1864) married Reverend David Alexander Elder (b. 1794 – d. 1856). The location of their deaths could be either in NC, possibly Lincoln county, or in Hopkins county, TX.
    Their daughter Margaret Minerva Elder was born in 1835 in Macon, NC and died in Pilot Point, TX in 1916. She reportedly had 3 husbands, J.R. Bryant, John Mathis Jordon, and Caleb Ashbury Earp. Apparently she migrated to TX with her second husband, John Jordon, before 1859 and prior the Civil War.
    A daughter of John and Margaret Jordon, Mary Elizabeth “Molly” Jordon (b.1861 – d. 1951) married Edmond Powhattan Welch (b. 1852 – d. 1919). Molly Welch was one of my paternal great grandmothers.
    If anyone can verify the link of this line to the Hyde family, I will great appreciate it. I am willing to share information I have on Hyde/Leatherwood and their descendants, but assume others using this site know more than I have.

      AJ, fortunately for us all, a DNA test does not require blood, but just a Q-tip rubbed gently on the inside of your cheek then sealed in a vial and mailed back to Family Tree DNA. Our surname project has descendants of Micajah, and Diane Parvin is a good person to speak with about that, as is Tom Hyde. I’ll send you an email directly.

  • From Michael Hyde on Hyde Family Lines

    My name is Michael Richard Hyde. My earliest known Hyde ancestor is James Hyde (1814-1861) of Glasgow, Scotland. He emigrated to Montreal, Quebec with wife, Agnes Clark (1821-1889) and five children in April 1853, on the ship Juliet. I realize this webpage is focused on Hydes in England and the U.S., but would just like to put my info out there as another Hyde family line. I have done a lot of research on my line, but have been unsuccessful in attempts to find my Scottish ancestors (prior to James Hyde). I do have some clues which include a connection to John Hyde Christie (1836-1926), well known as General Manager of the the United Turkey Red Company, Glasgow. More details are available on my website: hydegenealogy@wordpress.com. I would be grateful to hear from anyone with more information about Hydes in Scotland (particularly Paisley, Renfrewshire & Glasgow. Many Thanks, Mike Hyde, Ottawa, Canada – mhyde@outlook.com

  • From Marty James Hyde on Hyde Family Lines

    Howdy Cuz,
    Yes, it seems like we are second cousins. I live in Central Arkansas, Sherwood, Arkansas to be exact. We are just are on the north side of Little Rock. As a kid I met your father Edward on a couple of occasions but its hard to remember. As I remember he left for the Army in his early twenties. I was traveling through Oklahoma around 1978 on leave and was told that Edward had died and to see if I could pay my respects on the way through. Unfortunately I couldn’t find where the funeral home was. I know your grand father Willie Earl “Bunt” Hyde more. He lived in Denning, Arkansas and was a coal miner till the mines closed down and was as I heard and excellent finishing carpenter. His nephew James Robert “Jim Bob” Hyde was my father, and Bunt’s brother Robert Horace “Rob” Hyde was my grand father. Your lineage is Edward Hyde – Willie Earl “Bunt” Hyde – James Ray Hyde – William Jessie Hyde – Dotson Hyde – Jessie Hyde. I have a family tree on Ancestry.com named Marty James Hyde where there are pictures. I have only been doing this Ancestry thing for about a month and am not even a decent amateur but am growing. I do not have facebook but my wife does, her name is Nancy Hyde and I will let her know to be looking for a friend request. Incidentally in Altus, Arkansas right off I-40 they have the coal miners memorial with all the miners from there. You have a lot of relatives on there including your Uncle Bunt. A humorous note of your grand father and some others. It was the 4th of July and everyone was at grandpa Rob’s house for celebration. I was about 5 or 6 and in the back yard as My father Jim Bob, Grandpa, Uncle’s Bunt, and Loyd were shooting a pistol at the old out house. There were taking sips of what I thought was water out of a glass jar. I kept asking for a sip and they kept saying no. Finally Bunt said give the boy a sip. Contrary to their later statements to my mother and grandmother they all agreed. I took one sip, It wasn’t water, and my mouth was on fire, I could hardly see and snot and tears was flowing like rivers. I ran screaming to the house. As I ran into the house screaming my mom picked me up and said what wrong baby. I told hey they gave me water and its burns my mouth, (yes I threw them all under the bus). As I sat there my mom and aunts consoling me I watched as my grandmother grabbed a broom stick she used to shoo the cows off the lawn go after ALL of them with the vengeance of a Samurai Warrior. Now lets set the scene, here are men that I thought were bigger than life running and hollering like scared little girls as that broom stick connected many many times. Its ingrained into my mind. Looking forward in hearing from you. Marty

  • From William E. (Bill) Legg on Hyde Family Lines

    I am doing research on the Hyde family. My maternal grandmother was a Hyde born in Pontotoc, Mississippi in 1898. The earliest ancestor I can find in this line is: William Robert Hyde. He was born 17 April 1811 in Greenville, South Carolina and died 28 December 1876 in Lafayette County, Mississippi. He married Elizabeth Ann “Betsy” Bruce on 27 November 1831. They named their son William Benjamin Hyde. He was born 23 August 1846 and died in 1908.

    There is a Noel Hyde located in the Greenville area at the time William Robert was born. The several census show him in the area for many years. In the 1810 census there is also a Daniel Hyde, a Christian Hide, a Jacob Hide, a Jno Hide, a Michael Hide, a Moses Hide. There is no one by the name of William or Benjamin Hyde (Hide) in the Greenville area when the 1810 census was taken (again, William Robert was born in 1811 at Greenville, SC. Thus, it stands to reason that his mother and father were in the area during the 1810 census.

    As an aside, there are plenty of William and Benjamin Hydes in North Carolina (particularly Rowan County) for several decades. I wonder if the family information on the birthplace of William Robert is in error.

    If anyone has information or an idea, please contact me at the email address given above.

    Thanks,
    Bill Legg

  • From Sylvia Harper Nelson on Hyde/Hide William ( ?? -1681) - Norwich, CT

    My line descends from William – Samuel – Lt Samuel – David – Elizabeth – Lucy Hinckley – Olive Hale – Lucy Churchill – Jessie Hemenway – Mabel Royce. So, it daughtered out when David Hyde married Althea Bradford. They did have a bunch of boys, though. I have seen all the connections in ancestry.com to the supposed parents of William Hyde and wondered. There did not seem to be much actual documentation, just information passed from one tree to another. I am one of those who relies on documentation (otherwise I find that if you are not careful you will find yourself tracing back to Adam via those ancestry trees!). I am happy to have found this site/discussion and have learned so much by just reading through all the posts. Thank you for being so willing to share your information and knowledge on this family. At 74 you would think I was finished “stumbling” onto information, but not so! If I come across anything to share I certainly will. I have taken the mtDNA and Autosomal DNA tests and some of my matches are with people with Hyde ancestors.

    I am also a descendant of Hyde’s. My grandmother’s mother was a Hyde. Her name was Mary Elizabeth Hyde (Brown) Married to Benjammin Franklin Brown. Benjamin was born on April 11, 1864 and was married on January 15, 1899. Mary was born Oct. 27, 1878. And Mary’s Mother’s name was Mrs. Harriet Hyde. And her father AAron Hyde.I have letters that my dad was given by family members years ago. Saying we were related to Queen Ann of England. And our family of Brown name also came from England and was the Knights of Norman. I have recently done the DNA testing and waiting for my resolves. In this letter it states that our descendants has been tracted by to the beginning during the reign of King John of England 1199-1216. Cheryl Czech

    • From Ann Sterling on Hyde Family Lines

      Cheryl, thanks for posting. Yours is an important line but not in the way that you’ve been told. There’s a lot going on with it, and it’s taken several days for me to decide how best to present this. I think what I’m going to do is put up a page for Samuel and Thomas Hyde of Greene County, PA. They’re not related, but their children and grandchildren are often confused with one another due to naming similarities. A further issue is that Samuel had a graft done within roughly the last century, which links him erroneously to the Samuel Hyde who was the son of Robert Hyde and Jane Underhill (not Underwood, more about that later) of York County, VA. That Samuel died around 1739. I see why Samuel is linked to VA, and that can be explained by a misunderstanding of court records. The irony here is that Robert Hyde of VA appears to have misrepresented himself as a cousin of the Clarendon branch when he was not – that in and of itself is a very long story, because there are two ways he might have attempted this, if indeed it was he and not his descendants who chose to cash in on the name. Both he and his cousin Richard Hyde of VA are of modest origins, but did well in the New World. It’s long past the time that I write about Robert and Richard Hyde of VA, but right now, the ingenuity of Samuel Hyde of Greene County, PA, who purchased 300 acres in an area where there was a need for a ferry, is more pressing. There’s a lot that’s wrong with online genealogy for this line, for example, if people die before they’re born, that’s a problem. If they appear on tax lists in PA then mysteriously sail to China to get married and come back the same year, that’s a problem. If they live more than 150 years, yes, problem. If they die more than a decade prior to making out their will, well, yeah, that too is a problem. I don’t think that we’re going to find any actual records for John and James with the middle name of “Hansford” or “Handford”, but most likely that of “Harry”. That may be hard for some to accept. For the record, it’s easy to get it wrong and we welcome corrections.

  • From Theodore Hunt Butler Smythe on Hyde/Hide William ( ?? -1681) - Norwich, CT

    I just found this site as I am working to update what my great aunt had started in two books tracing some of the ancestry of Amy Denison Butler my great-grandmother. Her Grandmother was Caroline Hyde Butler who carried as her middle name that of her ancestor – and mine – William Hyde who is noted above.

    I have found Ancestry.come to be fraught with inaccuracies with some family trees contaminated with like names but no relationship to the ancestry they contain. This page is insightful and I appreciate it.
    I don’t have much to add to this other than the heritage that follows from William Hyde, his son Samuel to his son WIlliam , Rev. Jedidiah Hyde to Diadema and down the line to me with the Butler name attached.
    Great to see such informational comments from my relatives!

      Marilyn, I’m still working on the writeup for Humphrey, and that’s going to be more comprehensive than any of the books I’ve read thus far. I know it’s been a long time. Let’s just say I have reason for waiting.

  • From Mike Duffy on Hide/Hyde North Carolina Project

    Hi everybody
    I’ve begun to work out my Hyde family connections and have contacted Tom, who suggested posting here. I’ve put together a lot of information about the family of William Hyde and Charlotte Parker in the mid 1800s but still have a lot of questions- I know practically nothing about William himself, other than he had Alabama connections and disappears before 1840, when Charlotte is head of a household in Edgecombe County NC. Her children were John, Stephen, Martha and James Thomas. Most of them remained in the Edgecombe, Martin and Wilson County area. I am looking for information about William and especially about Stephen and Stephen’s son Eugene, who was my great great grandfather. I have a lot of information to share.
    Also looking for information about Nick Hyde, born in Wilson or Martin County around 1903, raised in Hyde County, and eventually moved to Durham, and Robert Hyde (or Lee) born around 1913 and adopted around 1922.
    Thanks.
    Mike

      Well this is serendipitous. I emailed Tom a few days ago asking about William A. Hyde/Hide and Charlotte Parker, because I ran into them while researching the James Thomas Hyde buried in Wake County, NC that you mention. This family is strongly associated with the Bell family of Edgecombe. James Thomas also has some sort of tie to Bibb and Autauga counties in Alabama, so there’s a possible association with William Christopher Hyde. I don’t know anything more than that at the present time. I’m a bit buried with other projects at the moment but hopefully someone out there knows this family?

        Hi Ann
        Thanks. I have come across the name Bell several times in association with the Hydes, as well as Knight, Anderson and Pittman. I did not know about any Alabama connections for James Thomas. He’s a puzzle- I assume him to be a son of Charlotte, but her administration papers of 1885 name only her grandchildren as heirs-at-law; though he was still alive, he is not mentioned, which seems odd if he was a son… Not familiar with William Christopher Hyde. Any help (no rush- whenever convenient) is appreciated.

    I am currently trying to find information on John T Hyde born 1883 in North Carolina. His daughter Margaret Estelle Hyde was my grandmother. I believe William Harvey Hyde (born 1854) was his father, however I am not 100% sure. His father I believe is John Bangor Hyde born 1830. I can trace this line to the Hyde family of Newton, Mass. with Jonathan Hyde as my ancestor who came to America in 1639 from England. Does anyone have any additional information with this Hyde family line? I just want to make sure I am linking the right people to make this lineage correct.

      Amanda, there’s some confusion here. An W Estelle Hyde appears with her parents in the 1920 and 1930 censuses for Swain and Jackson, NC, however, Florida marriage records suggest that an Estelle Harrison married Hemphill. Okay, issue resolved via SSN applications, parents of Margaret Estelle Hyde married to Pat Hemphill shown as John T (Thomas) Hyde and Sarah C. (Candace) DeLozier. Death cert for John T Hyde shows born 14 May 1883 Judson, NC, died 4 Aug 1960, parents Harvey Hyde and Nancy Colvard, informant was Kenyon Hyde of Franklin, NC. Nancy Colvard’s parents were James C. Colvard and Catherine Mahala Sherrill. Harvey Hyde’s parents were…need to confirm with extensive collections in the Catawba County, NC library…also, most of the individuals we are speaking of were buried in the old Hyde and Montieth Cemeteries of Swain County and what could be recovered by 1943 was later moved to the Lauada Cemetery in Bryson City, Swain County, NC…Harvey Hyde’s parents were…hmm. There seems to be no shortage of Harveys and/or William Harvey Hydes in this extended family. Note also continued use of Hazeltine/Haseltine as middle name. Okay, this particular Harvey Hyde’s parents were … Harumph. I can’t say for sure. There were two Harvey/Harvies and at least 3 William Harveys, and they all had the same grandparents or in one case, parent, and he was the Benjamin Hyde married to Cynthia Sherrill. Benjamin Jr was the son of Benjamin Sr, married to Elizabeth/Rebecca Leatherwood. Benjamin Sr was the son of John Hyde/Hide, one of the first settlers in the Catawba, NC region and his line is the subject of our next big newsletter article concerning the Hydes, Leatherwoods and Cherokee Betsey Walker. I’m going to post this now and review the five or so Harveys so that we can determine the correct one as the parent of John T Hyde. I suspect that you’re right about John Banger/Bangor/Barringer/Barger as the correct father, just need to find the appropriate bits of paper to show it. Now, as far as this John B’s link to Jonathan of MA, please email me ann.sterling@gmail.com and let me know what you’ve got. I’ll tell you in advance that I’m skeptical, because I think I’ve seen this before, but one never knows. In approximately two weeks, we’re going to put up a page for Benjamin Hyde Sr (the one married to Leatherwood) as hashing out the correct genealogy for the Walker, Leatherwood, Hyde, Colvard, Sherrill and quite a few other families will help to make sense of the story that will appear in our long-delayed newsletter. I’ve been trying to figure out how best to lay out my nearly book-sized pages of notes concerning Elizabeth Walker, because understanding the genealogy is critical to understanding the relationships of the people involved, but at the same time, that level of genealogical detail obscures the story itself. Hyde researchers and David Leatherwood will be receiving a first draft of the article in the next week or so.

    I think that my grandfather, Rufus Homer Hyde, was related to this family. He was born in 1909 in Fulton County, Ga. (I believe), and died in 1995 in Cleveland County, NC. This is his DSS card. Unfortunately, I don’t have much more information on his childhood than that provides.

      Blake, this is Tom “Doc” Hyde’s direct line, so I’ve asked him to take a look at this. In my reply to Dorothy, which appears directly above your comment, is a breakdown of the Stephen Hydes. There’s quite a lot of (free) information on Familysearch.org, so you may want to use that to get birth, marriage, death, census and other records to fill in the blanks of this outline: Rufus Homer Hyde b 6 Aug 1909, married Epthia Pauline Curtis….Rufus’ parents were Rufus Thornton Hyde b 1881 and Della Clark b 1886….Rufus T’s parents were Daniel Tense Hyde b 1835 and Martha Eulone Mabry b 1848 (father Osbern Mabre/Mabry)…they appear in the 1870 census Shoal Creek, Dawson, GA next door to Pinien or Pinion family. Confederate soldier. Daniel T’s parents were…it gets very sketchy from here….possibly Daniel or David Hide/Hyde…On the 1810 census for Greenville, SC there’s a young Daniel – although could be David – Hide, approx 22 years old with his young wife. They are living near Linderman/Lenderman, Redman/Redmon, and Ray families, as well as Jacob Black and Samuel Dyer. In the 1830 census for Pickens, SC they are living next to Stokes Pinion, Noel Hyde and Stephen Hyde…Daniel Hide/Hyde’s parents are said to be Stephen Hyde and Mary “Molly” Waddell. On Hyde DNA, this is our R-M512 Group from England.

    Thanks for you reply. My Ancestry DNA shows 72% West Europe, 15% Irish, 5% English. This was a surprise given my research back to Merry Old England. So, your info on my Hyde line makes a great deal of sense.

      Mark, technically the UK is part of Western Europe, so it’s not clear to me how Ancestry is framing this, but let’s just say that ideas about migration routes based on DNA are continuing to evolve.

      Mark, I don’t work for Ancestry or Family Tree DNA, but if you have the old Ancestry format DNA test, that can be converted to align with our Hyde Y-DNA Project, to compare your results with others. At present we’re waiting on FTDNA test results for 1 or 2 descendants of William. The newer Ancestry autosomal format is currently not compatible with FT. As far as the Hyde line back to 1100, we run into that a lot. There’s no proof that William of Norwich was related to the Cheshire/Denchworth Hydes. Burke’s “Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry including American Families with British Ancestry, Sixteenth Edition” was published in 1939 and compiled primarily by L.G Pine. If you read closely what he says about William, you’ll see that he does a bit of backtracking when he asserts that William “is said to be identical with, but was more probably the father of” William Hyde of Norwich, because the dates are impossible and the son of Robert Hyde and Beatrice Calverley died in England.
      &nbsp
      The first recorded use of Hyde as something of a surname occurs around 1217, when Roger de Hyde and members of his family are called upon to assist William Marshal, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, with the King’s business in Ireland. Roger was a seneschal to the first Earl, and we are trying to find out more about his family. This was around the time that war with France was looming and a sort of English national fervor began to take hold in the way the Norman nobility self-identified. “Hyde” is regarded as an Anglo-Saxon word although its roots lie deeper in the proto-Germanic language base – but that’s a long story for another time. So when you see those trees that go back well past the 13th century or assert anything about Canute, just be aware that these were made up in a later era. On the other hand, if anybody finds any references to actual (Medieval Latin, Norman, Flemish) documents involving people calling themselves de Hyde/Hide/Hyda prior to Roger, please let me know.

          If you look through the various Visitations and Bishops Transcripts, Robert Hyde and Beatrice Calverley do not appear to have had a son named William. I would be grateful if someone could provide us with records concerning the additional children they are said to have had, namely William, Thomas, Urian/Uriah and John. Possibly something in Inquisitions Post Mortem? The same source that asserts William as the 4th son of Robert and Beatrice apparently goes on to say that he matriculated at Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1597, see here However, his brother Thomas, listed on same page, was actually one of the sons of Robert Hyde and Jane Davenport, who were the parents of Robert Hyde. So *IF* there was a connection between that William and that Thomas, they were the brothers, not the sons, of the Robert Hyde who married Beatrice Calverley. Further, there are death records for two William Hydes listed as sons of Robert, buried at St Mary’s Stockport, Cheshire, in 1635 and 1641 respectively. Even so, without more information we can’t assume that their father was either of the Roberts mentioned as they could easily have belonged to any of several Hyde families in the town. So there’s really nothing out there to suggest that William of Norwich was the son of Robert and Beatrice.

    Hello

    I am a descendant of Tinte Hide (1769 – 1843), who may have been related to Nehemia Hide, who may be the son of Daniel Hide, son of John Hide (1667 – 1744)…. This information comes mostly from Ancestry, and the birth and death dates for some are obviously wrong, but I have been able to find supporting evidence for some of it.

    Do you know of Tinte Hide? She apparently was born in Stratford, Conn in 1769 and died in Canada in 1843. Does the information about Tinte seem probable?

    Thanks

      Tinte Hide/Hyde is a documented descendant of Humphrey Hide of CT. I would point you to our writeup on Humphrey but I haven’t completed the revision yet. In the meantime, take Ancestry trees with several large grains of salt, partiularly regrading dates. Several noted genealogists, including Myrtle S. Hyde, have either written or co-authored a number of works concerning Humphrey and his family, several of these are available on the net. The name Tinte is unusual and *might* suggest that one of her parents is somehow connected to the Tynte family of Somerset, England. I wish that you were eligible to participate in our Hyde Y-DNA study, but it’s confined to male-to-male descendants. At the present time, we have only one Humphrey participant, and he matches so closely with descendants of Jonathan and Samuel of MA that they could have been in the same immediate family. So either the old records are confused or the three of them really were cousins. It would be great to find out one way or another, as this has implications for their place of origin in England.

  • From William (Bill) Hyde on Hyde/Hide William ( ?? -1681) - Norwich, CT

    Following up on my earlier note above from June 30: First, I am certainly no ancestor of that William! I am honored to be a descendant, tho.

    Second, just to let the group know, I have submitted my Y-DNA and so that is under way.

    Third, I came across a letter written by an ancestor about 100 years ago in which she said William was from Norwich, England. (We know how accurate family lore can sometimes be.) However, it was a center of protestant beliefs which saw religious uprisings as early as the mid-16th century. There also was extensive trade with the continent across the channel and thus much contact with like-minded persons. To me that suggests a possibility that he arrived “here” via Europe or merely as a stow-away.

    • From Ann on Hyde, Micajah (abt 1797-1875)-Hall Co., GA

      Dorothy, there were three Stephen Hyde/Hides in the 1790 census. One of them is Stephen Hyde of Anson County, NC, who was the son of David Hyde and Mary Wilkins. He is mentioned in David Hyde’s will (NC, 1785). He was a slaveholder, as were almost all in the extended Richard Hyde line. This Stephen of Anson was married to Susanna Colson Fanning and is also mentioned in her father John Colson’s will (SC, 1789). John Colson was a Tory and I believe that Stephen was also. Both Hyde and Colson complained to the provisional government of NC concerning confiscation of their lands, 1786 – that record will clarify this Stephen’s descendants.
       
      The second Stephen only appears in the 1790 census and no other. I *think* Stephen Hide of Surry County, SC is the one married to Mary “Mollie” Waddell, and she appears as a widow in the 1800 Spartanburg, SC census, very close to Stephen’s brother George Hyde/Hide, who has moved from his land in Surry NC to Spartanburg SC. This branch of Hydes did not leave wills, but there are associations with probate records and land purchases between a Samuel, George, Charles and this Stephen Hide/Hyde. Possibly someone could jump in here with additional information? This is where I get confused.
       
      The third Stephen Hide/Hyde/Hede appears in Greenville, SC in 1790 and is the one associated with the Noel Hide who married Elizabeth Black. James, Noel and Isaiah Hide are all quite close to one another on the 1800 census, while Stephen is either not in Greenville or not a head of household (look for older males)…so I’m not saying that the Stephen Hide/Hyde of Surry is *not* Noel’s father, just that we need some clarification between Stephen of Greenville, SC and Stephen of Surry, NC – one of whom served in the Revolutionary War. Anyone? Tom?
