Hanover switched frae the Julian tae the Gregorian calendar on 19 Februar (Auld Style) / 1 Mairch (New Style) 1700. Great Breetain switched on 3/14 September 1752, efter Caroline's daith. Unless itherwise indicatit, dates afore September 1752 are Auld Style. Aw dates efter September 1752 are New Style. Aw years are assumed tae stairt frae 1 Januar an nae 25 Mairch, which wis the Inglis New Year.
