    • History of Paris, Maine from Its Settlement to 1880 with a History of the Grants of 1736 & 1771 Together with Personal Sketches, a Copious Genealogical Register and an Appendix

      Samuel Hyde or Hide, was the son of Nehemiah and Hannah (Murdock) Hyde of Newton, and was born Oct. 8, 1731. He married Mary King of Cambridge in 1765, and died in 1790. He became a grantee on the right of Richard King, who was a grantee in 1735. Richard King was a carpenter in Watertown in 1740. Six years subsequently, he moved to Scarboro, Me., and became a wealthy lumber exporter. He married first, Isabella Blagden of York, and second, Mary Black of the same town. He was the father of Rufus King, the eminent statesman, of William King, the first governor of Maine, and of Cyrus King, an eminent lawyer formerly of Saco. The wife of Samuel Hyde was doubtless a relative of Richard King.
