Robert Hyde16

    Robert Hyde16 (b. c1592 at Denton, Lancashire, Eng.; d. 1684) married Alice Crompton (b. c1595 Crompton, Lancashire, Eng.), daughter and co-heir of Thomas Crompton.[1]  Robert and Alice were married in 1630.[2]

    Robert and Alice Hyde’s children were:

    1. William Hyde17 (b. c1622, Denton, Eng.)

    2. Robert Hyde17 (b. c1624, Denton, Eng.)

    3. Anna Hyde17 (b. c1628, Denton, Eng.)

    4. Catherine Hyde17 (b. c1630, Denton, Eng.)

    5. Deboria Hyde17 (b. c1632, Denton, Eng.)

  Some family history researchers list additional children including Samuel (b. 1610) and Jonathan (b. 1626) but I have found no evidence of this.

“Robert Hyde was a zealous Puritan and took part in the Defence of Mancester in 1642 [first year of English Civil War].”   “He was a D. L. of the county in 1642; Civil War Tracts (Chet. Soc.), 2.  For his presence at the attack on Machester see ...; he opposed the surrender; ....  He was a member of the Presbyterian Classis; Shaw, Manch. Classis (Chet. Soc.).”[3]

Robert Hyde[16] was active in the local Denton church, the church of St. Laurence (formerly St. James, the dedication having been changed about 1800 by the rector) which stands on the south side of Denton.[4]  “The chapel of St. James was built on the waste in 1531-2, and in 1534 an agreement was made by the tenants as to the levy for the payment of the chaplain.  Beyond this there was no endowment, but Richard Holland in 1618 left £100 towards the purchase of an annuity of £20 for a ‘godly minister to preach the word of God and read devine service’, to be nominated by the Hollands and Hydes or their Successors.”[5]  “A small pew was built outside the north wall in 1676 by Robert Hyde[16], who was deaf; it had an opening into the church near the pulpit.”[6]

“[Robert] died in 1684 [“His will is printed in Booker’s Denton, 30-33.  A pedigree was recorded in 1665; ....[7]], and his son and heir Robert[17] in 1699, leaving as sole heiress a daughter Mary, who married Sir Ralph Assheton of Middleton, but had no issue.  The Denton estate, however, was retained by her husband, and fell to the lot of Katherine, his daughter by a previous marriage; ....[8]

    In 1684 at his death, Robert Hyde left £5 a year to the Mottram-in-Longdendale Grammar School, Mottram, Cheshire.[9]

    When Robert Hyde died in 1684, his third son Robert Hyde17 inherited the Denton Estates.[10]  One wonders why Samuel, the oldest son, left for America in 1639 and didn’t stay to inherit his father’s estate.  One can only speculate.  Looking at history, the years before 1639 were turbulant times in England.

    The problems started in 1603 with the accession of James, the King of Scotland, to the English throne.  Being from Scotland, King James I (the first Stuart) never did understand the role of the English Parliament.  The conflict between the King’s interest and the Parliament’s, many of whom were Puritans, as well as the clashing of religious beliefs between the strict Puritans and the established Church of England were the roots of the problems.  With the accession of King Charles I in 1625, the conflicts intensified until in 1642 heavy fighting broke out in what has become known as the English Civil War.  The Puritan Army under Oliver Cromwell fought and defeated the Royalist supporters of the King with the result that Charles I was beheaded in 1649.

    Since Robert Hyde is characterized as a “zealous Puritan,” one can easily imagine that Samuel, at age nineteen in 1639, was at odds with his father over the political situation and decided to leave for a more promising future in America.  Or that Samuel was at odds with the Royalist government.  However, this is only speculation on the compiler’s part.

    The Hyde family lived in Denton, Lancashire, England for many generations back to the twelfth century.  “They [The Hydes] were a respectable but undistinguished county family who had held the estates of Norbury and Hyde in Cheshire from very early times.”[11]  The first Earl of Clarendon, Edward Hyde (b. 18 Feb. 1608/9) is of the same family.  In 1660, his daughter, Anne Hyde, married James, the Duke of York, afterwards King James II of England.  From this union were born two English queens: Queen Mary of William and Mary, and Queen Anne.

    Denton is about eight miles south-east of Manchester, England.  Denton is a village famous for its manufacture of hats.[13]  The villages of Denton, Norbury and Hyde (Hyde Chapel) are all very close.  See the 1795 map[14] on the next page (The scale is one inch equals about 2.5 miles).  Near Denton, the Tame River is border between Lancashire and Cheshire shires.  Therefore,


Denton is in Lancashire and while only a mile away the village of Hyde is in Cheshire.  Today, Denton and Hyde are suburbs of Manchester.

    In 1795, J. Aiken wrote about the country around Denton.

“There remain proprietors who hold very extensive possessions; and the remark [earlier] of the number of ancient families which bear the names of the places where they reside, is still applicable to this county.”  “In most townships there is one farm, still distinguished by the name of the Old Hall, or manor house (the former residence of the great proprietor of the district), which is of larger extent than any of the neighbouring farms.”[15]

Near Denton, there are two such old halls of ancient families named Hyde Hall (see map).  On the Cheshire side of the Tame River opposite Denton is the ancient hall of the Hydes (Near the “H” in Hyde Chapel on the map.)  Above is Hyde Hall in 1795.[16]  The building is an ancient hall with a new front (in 1795).

“The will of William Hyde[15] is printed in Booker’s Denton, 27-8; the inventory amounted to £898, and he left his Bible in two volumes, Mr. Hildersam’s works, the clock in the parlour, and other things to Alice his daughter-in-law.  A settlement of their estates was made in 1630 by William Hyde[15] of Denton, Robert[16] his son and heir apparent, and Alice wife of Robert[16] and one of the daughters and co-heirs of Thomas Crompton of Crompton, on the one part , and Robert Dukinfield of Dukinfield and Robert Ashton of Shepley on the other part; ....”[20]

Alexander de Hyde3.5

    The father of Sir John de Hyde4 was Alexander de Hyde3.5 (b. c1247 Norbury, Eng.). [The funny superscript of 3.5 meaning the 3.5th generation is due to error on my part in skipping a generation.  I will fix in later versions.  Dan]

“The Hydes of Hyde and Norbury, who were lords of Haughton by Denton, held lands in the latter township, for Robert de Hyde[3] gave to Alexander[3.5] his son and his heirs all his lands of Denton, and in confirmation and augmentation of this John de Hyde[3.5] about 1270 granted all the lands in Denton, which he held, also land in Romiley in Cheshire, to his brother Alexander[3.5], son of Sir Robert de Hyde[3].  ....  [However] By a settlement of 1331 the lands of John de Hyde in Denton and Romiley were to remain to Richard[5], the son of John[4], and Maud his wife, daughter of Roger Vernon.  Richard and Maud in 1366 agreed to make no alientation of the estate [“the declaration was made in Stockport Church, perhaps on the betrothal of Richard[6] son of Richard.”[40]], and two years later John[4], the father, made a grant to Richard[6], the son of Richard[5] [“the grant was all his messuages and lands in Denton in the vill of Withington.  From the same charters it appears that Richard de Hyde[6], probably the younger Richard, granted lands in Romiley to his son John[7] and heirs in 1395-6”[41]].”[42]

“William son of Richard Baguley allowed Robert son of John (sic) de Hyde to make a millpool on land in Hyde for the benefit of Haughton Mill, at a rent of a clove gillyflower.”[43]
