PLEASE NOTE:-
From the sixth century to 1066, the year ran from Christmas Day to the 24 December;
from 1067 to 1155, the year ran from the 1 January to 31 December;
from 1156 to 1751, the year ran from 25 March (Lady Day) to 24 March.
By 1751, it was realised that the Julian calendar did not keep pace with the Sun and that Easter was arriving later each year so a change was made to the Gregorian calendar (named after Pope Gregory who worked it out),
this meant the dates ran as follows:
1750 ran from 25 March to 24 March, 365 days
1751 ran from 25 March to 31 December, 282 days
1752 ran from 1 January to 31 December, 354 days (it should have been a leap year but, the 29 Feb. and 11 days between the 3 and 13 September were missed out to bring the calendar back in line with the Sun).
1753 ran from 1 January to 31 December, 365 days.
