  • I am trying to find info on my great great grandmother, Mary E Hyde. She was born about 1858. I know that she married John W Madison on 1 Jul 1874 in Noxubee County, Mississippi. They were living in Ashley County, Arkansas in 1880. That is all that I have been able to find about her. I am trying to find her parents, etc. I would appreciate any help that someone can offer. This has been a big brick wall for me. Thank you.

    • Frances, is it possible for you to obtain a copy of the marriage record? I’m interested in the name of the minister who performed the ceremony, and bondsman and wittnesses, if any. There were a number of Hyde/Hides in the Noxubee area around 1874, so we need to narrow it down. Feel free to email me directly, ann.sterling@gmail.com

  • My husband’s grandmother was Clarissa Hyde) who married Horton Earl Doty (descendants of Edward Doty who came over on the Mayflower) I have traced the Hyde’s back to the 1100’s(probably are some inaccuracies) I have read and heard that the William Hyde who came from England to Connecticut was related to a Hyde that was the Earl of Clarendon—can this be proven? Would appreciate any info you have–if no info, could you direct me to some sight or person that could help. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Joyce Sherwood

  • Joyce, thanks for your query. Our next newsletter will be published in March and will be about the origins of the Hyde surname, focusing on a group of knights with the surname in the 12th and 13th centuries. There are known issues with the medieval genealogies and we’ll take a look at these in more detail.

    If you are referring to the same William Hyde of Connecticut who is written up in our family lines, (?? – 1681), his parents are not yet known. If you’re referring to a different William, please let me know.

    Many Hyde families, including my own, have a strong oral tradition of being related to the Earls of Clarendon. This is largely based upon a Victorian era misunderstanding, see the first issue of the Hyde Families newsletter for more information. In brief, there was thought to have been a huge estate worth many millions up for grabs, and Hyde and other families in the late 19th century were often duped into paying for genealogies that attempted to graft noble ancestors onto their family trees to justify their claim to it.

    Without exception, the male Hyde line which brought forth the Clarendon Earls died out. The female line survived but lost the Hyde surname through marriage. So while it is still possible to be related to the Earls of Clarendon, it cannot be by way of the Hyde surname. Wikipedia has some well-researched information about each of the Clarendon Earls.

    I’d be interested in hearing more about your research and Clarissa Hyde Doty, and would be happy to answer any questions you might have. My direct email is ann.sterling@gmail.com

  • My Hyde (Hide) ancestor was Micajah Hyde, born abt. 1791, Wilkes Co., GA, died after 1871, Hall Co., GA. He was my 3rd great grandfather on my mother’s side. His son Jesse Daniel Hyde was my 2nd g grandfather. Jesse was born 11 June 1825, Hall Co., GA, died 10 May, 1883, Winston Co., AL. He married Sarah Jarome Barton. They are buried in Sardis Cemetery, Winston Co., AL. Their son William Jackson Hyde was my great grandfather, born 17 May 1861, Lynn, AL, died 17 Oct 1946, Haleyville, AL, married Harriet Elizabeth Barnett Hyde. Their daughter Sarah (Sadie) Hyde Newman was my grandmother. There is a lot of history on the Hydes and Bartons who moved from Hall Co., GA, to Winston Co., AL. To my knowledge none of the living males with the Hyde surname have had DNA testing, but there might be some willing to participate. I have had mtDNA testing on FTDNA and am on the Family Finder project. So far I have not been matched with any Hydes except for my first cousin, also a great granddaughter of William Jackson Hyde. I would be interested in adding our line to the Hyde genealogy website. Thank you, hope to hear from you.

    • I would like some of the information you have if you wouldn’t mind sharing. If you could email me at amberjean3106@yahoo.com that would be wonderful. I am a Hyde by marriage and we know nothing of my husbands relatives. We have tried to do ancestry searches but with out a great grandfathers name we have been unsuccessful. Perhaps you have information that we do not. I know they were from Winston/Walker Co. Alabama but to be honest we don’t know much more than that.

  • Robert Hyde died at Woodplumpton, Lancashire, England in 1735. The record of his burial states him as being “a sojourner”. I suspect that he was a visiting a a close relative, Izack, at the time of his death. He left in charge of Izack a son John. John had a son with a local girl, Sarah Bostock, in May 1747 (although they did not get married until August 1747). I assume from this that John attained his majority sometime in 1747 so was born in 1726. Their son was baptised as John Bostock/Hyde. From no later than the 1756 this couple were at Haughton or Denton in the south of Lancashire, parishes which both border Hyde in Cheshire.

    The questions that I have are: –
    when and where was the John who died in 1735 married and to whom?

    What was his connection to Izack Hyde (also spelt Hide)?

    Where was the son born about 1726 baptised?

    What happened to the John born in 1735?

  • My inquery is about Benjamin Hyde – D.O.B 1804 Ireland – he served in the British army in India 1821 -1842 -court martialled & discharged. Father was John & brother William?
    also served in the british army . Have been unable to find a record of his birth

  • Thanks for your query, Errol. There are limits to what is available online for both Irish birth and British Army records, but I will email you directly so that we can begin to narrow down the scope of where to look. —Ann Sterling

  • Hello, I am interested in learning about my ancestors on the Hyde side. My mother was Julia Catherine Hyde. She was born in Cannelton, Indiana in 1930. Her father, my grandfather, was Ralph Logan Hyde. He was born in Kentucky and died at around age 50 while living in Texas. His father, I believe, was John Riggs Hyde, and he lived and died in Perry County, Indiana. His father, according to what I have seen on Ancestry.com was Samuel H Hyde. He was born in Kentucky and died in Perry County, Indiana. Now, if I am correct, his father was Ancil Ansel Hyde, and he was born around the year, possibly in North Carolina, and died in 1844 in Tobin, Perry County, Indiana. His wife’s name was Mary (Miller). According to what was published on Ancestry.com, Ancil Ansel’s father was Charles Hyde…born in England. Can you tell me anymore about any of these? I really like your website, it is very interesting. 🙂

  • Joan, Ancil/Ansel was a “key” ancestor and in the near future we hope to do a writeup on him. In the meantime, I’m going to put you in touch with one of his descendants. —A

  • My 7th Great Grandfather is James Hyde, he was born abt 1689 in Monmouth Co., New Jersey and died abt 1775 in Hunterdon Co., New Jersey. Married Elizabeth Stout, born abt 1691 in Monmouth Co., New Jersey and died abt 1760 in Hunterdon Co., New Jersey. James and Elizabeth’s children: John, William and Sarah.

    I descend through their son John, born Oct 1705 in Hunterdon Co. New Jersey and died Apr 1795 in Hopewell, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey. He married Ann Elizabeth Runyan, she was born Jun 1706 in Monmouth Co., New Jersey and died abt 1804 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    I have traced descendants from John and Sarah, but have nothing for William.

    I have participated in autosomal DNA testing with AncestryDNA and FTDNA Family Finder.

  • My great great great grandfather Henry Hyde was born in New York some time around 1780-1800. His son Baldwin Heyde/Hyde was born in New York on 6/19/1819. His daughter Emily Heyde/Hyde was born in New York about 1840, and she passed away in Ohio on 2/25/1923. She was married to John Ingraham and had seven children, six living: Ida, Nettie, Callie, Albert J. Lula B. and Henry Baldwin. Any information you can give me would be very greatly appreciated.

  • I am descended from William Hyde (Hartford, Norwich), Samuel, Thomas, Cpt. Jacob Hyde, Jacob Hyde(moved to Grand Isle, VT), Elijah, Willard G. (Chazy, NY), John B. (Moved to Paw Paw, IL) George Eddie, Sr., George Eddie, Jr., Mary Estelle Hyde Crimm, Margie Laraine Crimm Lindhorst. My mother and I have residences in Monroe County, IL

    We have all kinds of documents from William Hyde to the present and are members of the NSDAR.
    We, too, are frustrated by the lack of documentation for the connection of William to ancestors in England. Seems like everything gets documented in England until the time around 1600 – 1680. Has to be due to many births, deaths, etc. not getting entered into the Church of England records. William must have been a religious dissident. It would make sense to me that he would not want his name on any records until he was somewhat out of the reach of the Church of England. Maybe William was not even his real name!!!

    Thanks for all your work. Very interesting.

    Margie Lindhorst

    • Margie,

      Thanks for your Comment on the Hyde Genealogy Association (HGA)’s website.

      Many of us are frustrated with tracing our Hyde ancestors across the Big Pond to England. A group of us at HGA are actively researching several early Hyde lines that go back to England. For example, my ancestor Jonathan Hyde (1626-1711) arrived in Newton, MA before 1647. His brother Samuel arrived in Newton on the ship Jonathan in 1639. Jonathan may have traveled on the same ship in 1639 but we don’t know. And we don’t know the name of Jonathan and Samuel’s parents or where they lived in England.

      One aspect of our research is to explore the use of DNA testing to try to identify connections between Hyde lines and to verify paper trails. We have had several DNA-based successes. I noticed that your grandfather George Eddie Hyde, Jr, is a direct male descendant from William Hyde. If you could identify a living direct male descendant, DNA testing might be a valuable tool to break down the William Hyde brickwall. For example, does your grandfather George Eddie Hyde, Jr have a living son (your uncle)? If you can identify such a living male descendant, he would be a great Y-DNA candidate.

      We at HGA have a Hyde DNA Project – see http://www.hydegenealogy.org/blog/?page_id=27 Most of us at HGA have dealt with the company Family Tree DNA for our DNA testing (Their website is https://www.familytreedna.com ). If you are a beginner in DNA testing, we can help. I would recommend a Y-DNA test with 67 markers (current cost $268 at FTDNA).

      Best regards,
      Dan C.

      • Dan C.
        My uncle (90 years old) recently did DNA testing. He is George Eddie Hyde, Jr. I am asking my only male descendant cousin (Thomas C. Hyde, Jr.) to get the test also.
        His father is deceased. My brothers, of course, are descended through a female line and not helpful to your Y-DNA project.
        Hopefully, my uncle will agree to have his testing released to your DNA project.
        Margie Lindhorst

        • That would be great, Margie. I should mention that if your cousin is from the same Hyde line as your uncle, for example if your uncle and your cousin’s father were brothers or in different generations of the same Hyde family, their Y-DNA results will be identical or nearly identical. So as long as we have one Y DNA representative for your Hyde branch participating in the project, that’s all we really need. Not that we would turn anyone down, far from it! But we want everyone to be fully informed about what to expect before they pay for a particular DNA test. Don’t hesitate to email Dan or myself if you have further questions.

      • Dan C. Hyde Hello, I was just reading your comment about Hyde’s and a letter I have in front of me says this. “Peter Brown came over on the Mayflower from England 1620. She was told Hydes were also on Mayflower too. But couldn’t verified this. The Hydes weren’t far behind. Samuel Hyde came to Amer. in 1625 and his Brother Jonathon in 1639. The oldest Land Mark in America is Hyde Log Cabin in Vermont. May be we are related. Cheryl Czech

    Thank you Hydes for any help.

  • I am looking for my Hyde branch, but do not know where to begin. I know one set of my GG or GGG Grandparents were named Orlando Cortez Hyde who married Isabel Barringer. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    • Kelly, our HGA Editor and Web Master, Dan Hyde, wrote a section on “Getting Started”, in our top menu bar. The first step is talking to your extended family about what they know, especially older relatives who might have stories to go along with their information. For example, I’ve seen the name “Orlando Cortez” come up quite often as a first and middle name, and I’m sure there’s a reason behind it. Start with what you can easily verify, to fill in the gaps between you and Orlando and Isabel, from your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, on back until you know exactly how many “G’s” to add to that GG.

      The next step is to create a free login on IGI, the LDS database, https://familysearch.org/ I’m sending you links to marriage certs and some other things to help get you started.

      In both census and death records, Orlando’s father is James Hyde, born in MD and mother is Elizabeth Jordan, born in Ohio. James’s father is shown on later censuses (1880) as born in Ireland, mother born in Michigan. Here’s a link to an organization that may have some information, the Irish Genealogical Society of Michigan: http://miigsm.org/ Where it gets interesting is that Orlando’s death record shows James himself as being born in Ireland, not MD. The info on a death record is only as good as the person doing the remembering, although something along similar lines could also be said about census info. There’s a naturalization record in MD for a James Hide circa 1838, the thing is, there were quite a few men named James Hyde who came over from Ireland during this time period, so one has to be very careful to find the correct person.

      As a general rule, anything based on ancestral trees, whether on Family Search, Ancestry, or most anywhere else, should be taken with a grain of salt. I’ve seen references to a James Henry Hyde of MD, but this is not the right James. I’m also seeing trees with clearly the wrong parents for Elizabeth Jordan. In general, whenever the parents are born after the child, in a different country, it’s, you know, wrong.

      Happy Hunting!
      Ann

    • Orlando was my great great grandfather. His daughter Laura Ellen married my great grandfather William Barrickman Morgan. My brother has Orlando’s cane into which Orlando carved his full name, Orlando Cortez Hyde.

  • I am looking for any information about my 2nd great grandmother born Lily, Kentucky about 1858, married John C Harris and died Dec 1938 thank you

    • Barbara, that’s not quite enough information to go on. Please feel free to email me directly, my address is on our contact page.

  • Sorry the person I am looking for information on is Lucy Hyde born in Kentucky about 1858, married John C Harris and died in 1938 in McHargue Kentucky

    • Lucy A Hide b KY betw 1857-59, m John Harris in Campbell TN 8th Feb 1875, d 17 Dec 1938 either Calloway or McHargue, KY. She appears to be a granddaughter of Dotson Hide, who was the son of Jesse Hide and Elizabeth “Betsy” Percifield. It’s not clear who Lucy’s parents were, as she was not living in Dott’s household after her birth, but appears with his family in the 1870 census along with 10 year old Nancy Blair. Note that a John Blair, age 21 married Mary Hide, age 19, in Laurel County KY in Jan 1854.
       
      A note concerning Dott’s father Jesse: his parents were not Samuel Hyde and Elizabeth Saunders of VA. Descendants of Jesse, William and Ansel Hyde are matches under the M-512 haplogroup in the Hyde DNA Project at Family Tree DNA.

      • Thank you for this information. As our research goes I am a descendent of Jesse Hyde from the group that migrated to Arkansas, I am anxious to find out more. I to thought Samuel and Elizabeth was Jesse’s parents. SHUCKS

  • Lovely to find some cousins, no matter if by name only.
    I started doing the research for my father just a few months ago and we’ve reached a dead end on Squire Hyde, born approximately 1767, supposedly in Killingly Conneticut, although we can find no official records supporting that. Squire married Hannah Montgomery in 1789 in Voluntown CN and he died in Plainfield CN in 1847. They had two daughters, Betsey Ida and Louisa Ann, and six sons, Squire S, Isaac, Elisha, Ira, Robert Montgomery, and William H.
    Robert Montgomery Hyde was born in Sterling CN in 1808, became a (lay?) minister in the Methodist Episcopal church, went to Lake County, Indiana where in 1840 he married Olive Lucille Flint. RM died in 1884 in Chicago. They had two daughters, Adelia Jane and Anne E and three sons, William Charles, called Carvasso in the family, EdgarNiles, and Daniel Frederick.
    Edgar Niles Hyde was born in 1852 in Porter, Indiana. In 1877 in Chicago hemarried Emma Louise Oakleaf. They had one daughter, Florence Jeanette, and three sons that survived to adulthood, Charles Edward, called Ed, Clarence Minor, whose birth record says Laurence Wilbur, and Fredrick Daniel. Edgar died in1936 in a Chicago hospital from complications of diabetes.
    Fredrick Daniel Hyde was born in Chesterton, Indiana in 1895. He married Lillian Johanna Carolina Silk in 1919 in Chicago. Fred died in 1982. They are survived by their daughter Gloria Lorraine and son Fredric Daniel.
    Fredric Daniel Hyde JR. was born in 1926 and just celebrated his 90th birthday. He married Patricia Harriet Hood in 1952. Their surviving children are Leslie Ann, Robert Montgomery, and Ellen Sue. They also have four granddaughters and one Hyde grandson, three great-granddaughters, and three great-grandsons, two of whom are Hydes.
    Dad and I would really like to find out more about Squire Hyde. We originally thought this might just be an honorific, but it is how he is listed in the various church records we’ve come across.
    I have just recently taken the ancestry dna test and am awaiting the results, which I’ll be happy to share and maybe Dad will want to take the Ydna test.
    Thank you and again, I’m glad to meet more “cousins.”

    • Willie Earl Hyde aka Uncle Bunt was the son of James Ray Hyde of Denning Arkansas, and the brother of my grandfather Robert Hyde also of Denning Arkansas. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

  • 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
    Bill Perry

    • 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.

      • Thanks Ann
        I just started looking into this a few days ago. I had no idea that my ancestors lived in Conn. I will look up Myrtle Hyde’s books and look forward to your writeup.

        I had intended to post this in the Humphrey line thread. Should I post it there to keep things organized?

        Many of Tinte’s descendants are buried in Nobleton, Ontario.

        Bill Perry

  • 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

    • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Michael, I looked over your web page and was most intrigued. I’ll send you a direct email tomorrow to discuss further. We get queries from all over the world, and attempt to assist with all of them. More on that when I get back.

  • we are looking for Benjamin Hyde born in 1800 in New Jersey? Died in 1850 Michigan? stuck on this he married Mary Foulks. Any information on this man would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    • 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.

      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.

      Drop us a line if you find out where/when Benjamin was in NY.

  • I am trying to find info on my Hyde family… My grandfather was William Ellis Hyde and married my grandmother lily Mae… She was from England and the met during WWII… I tried to get more info but camber up empty… Any info would be great!

    • Robert, there are a surprising number of William Ellis Hydes and Ellis Hydes, so if you have a location where they might have lived at a particular time, that’s what we need to move forward. Feel free to contact me via email.

      • Robert, your family’s story spans both world wars. Sgt William Ellis Hyde was born in 1929, parents George Edward Hyde and Lobelia “Bella” Candace McKenney/McKinney. Several generations further back are Alvin Samuel Hyde and Orpha Alexander, mentioned in “History of Geauga and Lake Counties, Ohio…” I can talk with you more about who the immigrant Hyde ancestor probably is, although not confirmed yet.

        William E Hyde married Lilymae Petty in Marin County, CA in 1950. She was born in Charleston, SC in 1921. Both were in the army and had been in England during WWII, she as a secretary to Gen Patton. Lilymae’s parents were Edith Mae (maiden name possibly Witte or Witts) and Edgar Gleases (various spellings) Pettie. He was born in Sumner County, TN in 1900 (note that there were several Edgar G Petty/Petties born in TN between 1897 and 1901). Edith Mae was born in England and her family was located in Marlboro/Marlborough, Wiltshire. Edith and Edgar appear to have been married in England in 1919, and Lilymae and her sister Irene were raised for the most part in England from about 1921 onward.

        I’m emailing you some documents to help get you started, and I hope you’ll contact family members and share their stories.

  • My maternal grandmother (Vera Lavelle Hyde) was born in 1898 in Pontotoc, Mississippi. Her father was Benjamin Leander Hyde and mother was Louella Belle Gafford. They moved to Memphis, Tennessee when she was a young girl.

    The earliest known and confirmed Hyde ancestor of this Pontotoc, Mississippi/Memphis,Tennessee line is:
    William Robert Hyde b. 17 April, 1811 in Greeneville, South Carolina and died 28 December 1876 in Lafayette, Mississippi.

    He was married to Elizabeth Ann (“Betsy”) Bruce on 27 November 1831 in South Carolina. They had the following children: James Benjamin Nolan Hyde; Washington Franklin Hyde; Martha M. Hyde; William Benjamin Hyde and Robert Vasco Hyde.

    It is thought (but not confirmed) that the father of William Robert Hyde was Jacob Hide who was born in 1790 in Lexington County, South Carolina. Nothing else is known of him.
