    Hi Pete, thanks for all the info from your HYDE website. My name is Chris ALLAN from Brisbane, Australia. I am a descendant of Maria HYDE, a sister to your forebear William Kidman HYDE. Both are issue of Robert HYDE/HIDE (shepherd) and Sarah KIDMAN m 13/7/1811. Interestingly, Maria married one Henry MIDDLETON in 1843 St.Neots, Hunts, and her brother William Kidman HYDE (1815 – 18/4/1861 Buckden, Camb.) married Rachel Sarah MIDDLETON (1825 – 25/3/1869 C’church) married 10/6/1845 Buckden. I would be interested to know if Henry & Rachel were MIDDLETON siblings?? Maria and Henry came to Australia circa 1846 having 7 issue of whom 3 died. I’m not sure when Henry died- can’t find it. When Maria died in 1908 in Sydney, the newspaper article asked that NZ papers copy – meaning that the Aust/NZ connection was still known at that time. Makes even more sense if there was a double MIDDLETON connection!. I was hoping you might be able to supply me any info on the MIDDLETON parentage of Rachel, and any HYDE info going further back – I can see a few families in Buckden, St.Neots and Godmanchester Huntingdonshire, but haven’t nailed down too much other than the HYDE/KIDMAN marriage. Bye for now, Chris ALLAN

      Chris, not sure if you will get this response, but Henry Middleton was the son of Samuel Middleton (1776-1845) and Frances Dunkley (1789-1836). Samuel and Frances had five known offspring – Henry, Thomas, Sophia, Rachel Sarah (who was the oldest Hyde to come to NZ and who my youngest daughter is named after) and Emily. Hope this helps a bit. You can contact me at if you want to get in touch.

      I am related to Rachel Sarah through Thomas Hyde, a brother of George who is related to Peter.
