John Hyde 'of St. Geo., Hanover Square' but identifiable as the same man as John Hyde of Montagu Square was the lessor in a transaction in 1783: '1783, March 26. Indenture between John Hyde of St. Geo., Han. Sq., Esq., only son and heir and residuary legatee of John H., late of Cornhill, Merchant, and George Healy of the one part, and Ebenezer Maitland of London, Merchant, of the other, Lease for a year of the Constant Spring plantation by Hyde to Maitland. (Coleman's Deeds.)' The will of John Hyde of Hackney, father of John Hyde of Montagu Square, connects him to Cornhill. It appears likely that he elder John Hyde had purchased an annuity secured on the estate and then foreclosed.
