He was the first Hide or Hyde ?of Shinfield?, according to the pedigree handed to Ashmole (for his Antiquities of Berkshire, 1723.).
Mr [Thomas] Hide had a large family, with a London home in Milk Street off Cheapside. His children and some of his grandchildren were christened in the neighbouring church of St. Mary Magdalene. Only two of them became closely associated with Berkshire, Thomas, the eldest son who was escheator of Berks, and Edward, the third son, " yeoman of the wine seller" (sic) to James I., Charles I., and Charles II., who succeeded him in Shinfield.
