Looking for Hyde - Melican connexion
My family anecdotal history is that our Melican name came from a John Melican who married into the large Hyde family of Co. Waterford around mid C19. Despite long and patient searching of records, I can find no evidence of this.
Interested in talking with anyone studying the Hyde clan (big in Co. Cork and Co. Waterford) who has found a connection with Melican, Hudson, or Steadman/Browne - all anecdotally Hyde (of Dungarvan) siblings - Bridget Hyde, Mary Hyde, and Norrie Hyde.
Thanks and best wishes
