My Hyde ancestors

Only "Burke's Landed Gentry" and "Burkes American Families" show any connection to English ancestors of William Hyde (To Robert Hyde of Norbury and Beatrice Calverly).  Another publication from 1864 "Hyde Genealogy" quotes the following: "William Hyde (1) the first, of Norwich, is not certainly known to have been connected with any of the Hyde families who came to this country from England, of which there were several in the United States."  I have recently come across a number of posts that question any kind of proven English ancestry for William Hyde (link1, link2).  Until other reliable sources are found, I am considering any ancestry of William questionable and in need of further research. 

01. William Hyde was born abt 1600.  William's first wife and mother of his children is not known.  William married second June 4, 1667, Joanna Abell, widow of Robert Abell. No children from this marriage. William Hyde "Founder and original proprietor of Hartford, 1636. Selectman 1637." (This is stated on a monument in an old graveyard of First Church of Hartford, Conn.) Founder and landed proprietor of Norwich, Conn."  William died on January 6, 1681 in Norwich, CT.
