Its also a possiblity that some of the early dates might be wrong owing to the changes made during the early 1700's.
The Old Style (O.S.)
way of dating events and documents known as the Julian Year was changed
in most Catholic countries in 1582. It was replace with a New Style (NS)
known as the Gregorian Year that was adjusted to start on the 1st
January. This change was also implemented in Protestant and Orthodox
countries some time later. In England, Wales, Ireland and the British
colonies, the change of the start of the year and the changeover from
the Julian calendar occurred in 1752 under the Calendar (New Style) Act
of 1750. In Scotland, the legal start of the year had already been
moved to 1st January (in 1600), although Scotland continued to use the
Julian calendar until 1752. Many cultures and countries now using the
Gregorian calendar have different old styles of dating, depending on
the type of calendar they used before the change.
