Publications relating to Hiddens

The unusual surname of Hidden can be traced back for more than five hundred years. Its origins are described in "The Hiddens of Hungerford Vol. 1", which traces the history of the Hidden family from about 1450 A.D. to about 1600 A.D. The second edition published in November 2011 contains 99 pages in A4 size and includes a full index of names and places.
Volume 2 of the "Hiddens of Hungerford" continues the record of each individual Hidden, Heddin or Heading descended from this line up to about 1690 A.D. It contains 204 pages, 9 family tree charts, 1 map and 14 pages of names indexed, including some 400 non-Hidden families mentioned in the text.
Volume 3 takes the story of the Hiddens from the 17th century, where it ended in Volume 2, right up to the 20th century. A narrative account is given of the several branches of the Hidden family with full references to the sources of information. Many photographs of family members are included.
Sadly, Norman Hidden, who has contributed so much to the history of the Hidden family, died in April 2006. At the time of his death Norman had almost completed Vol. 3 of the "Hiddens of Hungerford" and this has now been published by his widow Joyce together with notes of some unfinished research.
Copies of Volumes 1 and 2 are available from Nick Hidden ( Volume 3 is currently out of print.
