1. Before 1752, when the Gregorian replaced the Julian calendar, dates from January through March 24 are given in Old Style (e.g. 14 February 1722/23). The English Calendar (New Style) Act of 1750 took effect in 1752, with the day following September 2 becoming September 14 and the year 1753 began on the following January 1 (An Act for Regulating the Commencement of the Year; and for the Correcting the Calendar now in Use).

2.The law record for 1640-1692 is also contained in two compilations, Liber W.H. & L and L.L. No. 1.
