Hugh was born in 1724. Hugh Clyde ... He passed away in 1800. 
Per The History of Windham in New Hampshire by Leonard Morrison; Clydes involved in Windham local government included:
Daniel Clyde was appointed to the position of selectman March 9, 1747. March 8, 1750 showed Daniel Clyde was the constable, and his brother Joseph was a selectman.
In 1751 Joseph Clyde, was a constable (pg.204). One of the constable's duties was to warn out of town paupers who were newly arrived. This gave those individuals who were warned 14 days to pack their belongings and leave. This relieved the town of supporting the person and their family as a public charge. They would be sent back to their last place of residence and if they could not afford to go back it became the responsibility of the town that was 'warning them out' (pg. 170-171). Other duties included collecting taxes and posting warrants for meetings (pg. 201).
The next time a Clyde held a government office in Windham, New Hampshire was March 8, 1755, when Hugh Clyde was a selectman. John Clyde was elected a selectmen March 8, 1764 and Hugh Clyde was a selectman again in March 13, 1766 (pg. 205).
John Clyde shared the duties of constable of Windham with Alexander Park in 1777 (pg. 206).
Another interesting fact: the second framed house in Windham was built by Daniel Clyde, on the Clyde homestead, now owned by O.A. Simpson and the first two-story framed house was built by David Gregg, south of Charles W. Campbell's in School District No. 5 about 1728 (pg. 245).
