Strange date
« on: Wednesday 20 May 20 19:45 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered many times.
Sir Joseph Bradney in his book A History of Monmouthshire shows a burial date as 7th Jan 1622/30
Does this mean her death / burial was between 1622 and 1630?
The particular instance is p231 The Pedigree of the Family of Powell (Brychan) of Lanpil, in the chapter on Llanfiangel-Tor-y-Mynydd.

That's a relic of the change of calendar, when the new year began in March. so in this example, 1629 in the old Julian calendar, or 1630 in the modern Gregorian one.

Oh dear, so it is.
Sorry to waste your time.
I was thinking that I need my eyes tested, I guess this confirms it.
Maybe my post should be deleted to save other people's time?
Thank you Gadget
