25 Sep

As an example, 24 March 1750 was folowed the next day by 25 March 1751.In 1752 the law changed: the year 1751 began on 25 March 1751 and ended on 31 December 1751, to be immediately flowed by 1 January 1752.Even after England and her colonies changed the Gregorian calendar in 1752, this double dating system was continued by some colonial record keepers. Quaker dates will be numbers -- with March being the first month and Sunday the first day.This is confusing because some record keepers used double dating and some didn't; some continued it after 1752 and others didn't. An example of a Quaker rendering of a date would be: the 4th day of the 2nd week of the 8th month 1699.Many times, when I have been doing research in various sources for a particular event, I have found a two month difference in the date.Right away, I know I've run into this problem of misinterpretation of dates.They sometimes used Roman numerals (i-xii) for these, and sometimes Arabic (1-12).After 1752 all months were referred to by Quakers by their number. Today some researchers find it useful to write down the old style numbers as in the original text, but add the new style names in square brackets, such as: 27 iv [June] 1731 or 29 4mo. Most computer programs require the use of modern dating.

Thus Sunday was for them "First Day." Until 1752, they had no problem with the months September to December, which were derived from numbers, but for the other months they wrote out "First Month," "Second Month," and so on.

It's very inconsistent and it helps to be aware of this. This would be Wednesday of the second week of October 1699.

You will need a calendar for 1699 to figure out what day of the month this is.

Although March 25 was the beginning of the year prior to 1752 for ecclesiastical, legal, and civil purposes, since Norman times, January 1 was considered to be the beginning of the historical year.

This gave rise to a double dating system in some places -- between January 1 and March 25.
