I have been researching the earliest Hyde/Hide ancestors who came to America. Interment.net offers a list of those who are buried in "downtown" Newton, Massachusetts in a cemetery known as East Parish Cemetery.
One resource in print gives the genealogy of the earliest Hyde family that came to America. I located it some time ago on Ancestry.com.
Warner, Rufus S. Hyde Family: a partial record of one branch, descendants of Samuel, who came from London to Boston in 1639 and Jonathan, who came to America in 1647. The Tuttle Company, Rutland, VT 1931.
It appears by the source listing at Ancestry.com that this publication was acquired by them in 1990.
Ancestry.com. Hyde family [database on-line]. Provo, UT: The Generations Network, Inc., 2004.
Original data: Hyde
family : a partial record of one branch, descendants of Samuel, who
came from London to Boston in 1639, and Jonathan, who came to America in
1647.. Rutland, Vt.: Tuttle Co., 1990.
This resource mostly focuses on the author's ancestors. But, the beginning few pages really demonstrates how complex New England families can be in the early years. I am going to offer this clipping of one part of the first page for the purpose of educating non New Englanders. Notice the sentence that reads, "Four daughters of Job married four sons of Jonathan..."
This Samuel and the man referenced named Jonathan were brothers. I knew I was going to need a big piece of paper to chart this out so that I would be able to understand this cousin relationship.I will post it in the next blog post.
