The Hide surname in historical dictionaries

Patronymica Britannica (1860)

HIDE. A feudal portion of land of uncertain extent, according to its quality. A hide appears generally to have been so much land as "with its house and toft, right of common, and other appurtenances, was considered to be sufficient for the necessities of a family." Archaologia, vol. XXXV. p. 470. There are specific localities called Hide, in Warwickshire, Bedfordshire, Herefordshire, and many other counties.
