The Gre­go­rian cal­en­dar came into ef­fect on 1 Jan­uary 1752. Prior to this, Lady Day (25 March) marked the New Year, and doc­u­ments cre­ated be­tween 1 Jan­uary and 24 March might be dated with two years (1750/51) de­not­ing the old and new style. Fur­ther­more, 3-13 Septem­ber 1752 did not ex­ist in Bri­tain. Those 11 days were cut from the cal­en­dar, bring­ing us in line with other coun­tries that re­formed their cal­en­dars ear­lier.
