A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Pinnock and Hyde from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"PINNOCK and HYDE, a township chiefly in Didbrook parish, Gloucester; 4½ miles E by S of Winchcomb. Acres, 1,050: Real property, with Ford: £1,799. Population: 50. Houses: 10. It ranks ecclesiastically as a parish; and the living is a rectory, annexed to the vicarage of Didbrook; but there is no church."

A Vision of Britain through Time also states that the township became a civil parish in 1866 and it continued as such until 1935. It was part of Winchcombe Rural District until 1935. In that year the civil parish was abolished and the area was transferred to the adjacent Temple Guiting parish. Ford is a hamlet within the parish.
