Jonathan HYDE (b. 1626 in Eng.; d. 5 Oct. 1711, Newton, Mass.) came from London, England to Boston, joining his older brother Samuel HYDE (b. 1610 in Eng.; d. 12 Sept. 1689) who came on the ship Jonathan in 1639. Jonathan first appears in the records of Newtown/Newton, MA in 1647. He married, first, Mary FRENCH of Billerica (b. 1633 at Halstead, Essexshire, Eng.; d. 27 May 1672) in about 1650. He later married Mary REDIAT of Marlboro, Mass. who died about 1708.
Several people on the Internet claim that Robert HYDE (b. c1592 at Denton, Lancashire, Eng.; d. 1684) and Alice CROMPTON (b. c1595 Crompton, Lancashire, Eng.) are Jonathan’s parents. However, we have never seen any evidence of this fact.
One line of descendants of Jonathan Hyde is at The Hyde Ancestors of Lawrence Hyde (1888-1960).
