By 1752 England was some 11 days behind other European countries.
So in 1752 these days had to be cut out of the year to make the adjustment.
Until the Calendar Act of 1752, the year in England began officially on 25 March (Lady Day), and not 1 January (even though this was when New Year’s Day was celebrated).
Thus the year number did not change until 25 March, so taking 1558 as an example, the dates ran as follows: So if you see a document dated any time between January and 24 March before 1752, be aware that in modern terms, you need to add a year.
Other Catholic countries followed and adopted the Gregorian Calendar but England, being Protestant, did not.
England therefore remained 10 days behind the New Style Calendar.
Therefore Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed immediately by Thursday 14 September.
