  Old Style and New Style dates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Britain and countries of the British Empire, Old Style or O.S. after a date means that the date is in the Julian calendar, in use in those countries until 1752; New Style or N.S. means that the date is in the Gregorian calendar, adopted on 14 September 1752 (New Style).
In Russia, the terms "Old Style" and "New Style" have the same significance as elsewhere; however, the Gregorian calendar was introduced there much later—on February 14, 1918 (New Style).
Usually in modern histories, to avoid confusion and to keep dates consistent, the OS dates are mapped onto NS dates with an adjustment for the start of the year to 1 January.

 Gregorian calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Council of Trent approved a plan in 1563 for correcting the calendrical errors, requiring that the date of the vernal equinox be restored to that which it held at the time of the First Council of Nicaea in 325 and that an alteration to the calendar be designed to prevent future drift.
Nevertheless, the dates "5 October 1582" to "14 October 1582" (inclusive) are still valid in virtually all countries because even most Roman Catholic countries did not adopt the new calendar on the date specified by the bull, but months or even years later (the last in 1587).
Dates of events in Britain prior to 1752 are usually now shown in their original Old Style form, whereas dates of events in (then British) America prior to 1752 are usually now shown in the New Style form.

Dates found in documents prepared before 1752 may be an occasional source of confusion for researchers, even as they were to the people of the time.
The new year for the English-speaking world then became 1 January, and the discrepancy between dates, which had grown from eleven to twelve days, was resolved when Parliament declared that 2 September 1752 was to be followed immediately by 14 September 1752.
Because of the different practices in the dating of the new year, researchers may sometimes be misled in interpreting official documents prepared before 1752.

However, England was still using Old Style dating in 1616, while Spain was using New Style.

 Buffalo, New York - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With a population of 282,864 as of the United States Census Bureau's 2004 estimate[1], it is the state's second-largest city, after New York City, and is the county seat of Erie County.
Early French explorers reported the abundance of buffalo on the south shore of Lake Erie, but their presence on the banks of Buffalo Creek is still a matter of debate, so the origin of the name of the creek is still uncertain.
Most of western New York was granted by Charles II of England to the Duke of York (later known as James II of England), but the first European settlement in what is now Erie County was by the French, at the mouth of Buffalo Creek in 1758.

 Old Style and New Style dates
“Old Style” or “O.S.” after a date means that the date is in the Julian calendar.
“New Style” or “N.S.” means that the date is in the Gregorian calendar, which was adopted by England and the colonies on September 14, 1752.
The “Old Style” follows the Julian manner of computing the months and days, or the calendar established by Julius Caesar, in which the year consists of 365 days and 6 hours.

 Old Style and New Style Dates
Communication between England and the Continent was thus prone to ambiguities as far as dates were concerned, due firstly to the difference of ten days (eleven after 1700), and secondly to the different start of the year.
An individual date would be shown as, for example, 3rd March 1733/4 so we are left in no doubt that the date intended was in March 1733 Old Style and 1734 New Style, that is, the month before April 1734.
The date should either be written 20th January 1745 OS (if indeed it was Old Style) or as 20th January 1745/6.

The date the roll was originally issued is also shown, or an estimated issue date is suggested for rolls of unknown date, when it has been possible to make such an estimate.
It was initially presumed that style 165 rolls were released when the tunes on the rolls were at the height of their popularity, and that the date the tunes were first published would be a good indication of that peak.
For some rolls to which an exact date of issue still cannot be assigned, an estimated issue date is shown, derived from the dates of the tunes on the roll and from the issue dates of the rolls before and after it.

Thus, a British date of Jan. 1, 1732 might be cited as "Jan. 1, 1732/33"--which would be Jan. 12, 1733 under the Gregorian Calendar.
To give the Gregorian equivalent for every date in history would be a major task (although there are resources that will automatically calculate the conversion).
As a result, most historians simply use the date of whatever calendar was in effect at the time an event happened.

The result was confusion when dating events and documents in Britain and the American colonies.
Another complication was that under the Julian calendar as used by Britain and Colonial America a new year began on March 25 rather than January 1.
The issue is further complicated by the fact that we do not always know if the dates we find in our sources are true to the Old Style dating or to the double dating - i.e.

 The Calendar Change - Old Style vs. New Style   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
At that time the old Julian calendar was modified to conform more closely to the actual length of the year and seasonal changes.
The difficulty stems from the fact that, before 1752, most dates occurring during the first quarter of the year had to be considered two ways to be accurate.
Consequently the date in those days would be written February 22 1731-2 (1731 by the old style of reckoning and 1732 by the new).

You may notice, as you are researching the Pilgrims, certain puzzling discrepancies in dates.
In that year, Pope Gregory XIII promulgated a new calendar to bring the manmade calendar back into sync with the actual physical progression of time.
The result of these calendar systems is a dual system of dating, known as "Old Style/New Style." Hence, you may occasionally see a date, such as the date of the Pilgrims landing, referred to as "December 11/21."

These dates are often seen referred to as "old style" and "new style" dates.
A date such as 12 Feb 1746/7 would indicate the end of 1746 in the "old style" and the early part of 1747 in the "new style".
To assign a calendar date to these, you will need two pieces of information: (1) the date of the feast in that year; and (2) which calendar was in use.

 History of Nova Scotia, Jan 1700 - Dec 1769
The new fort was named Fort Lawrence.  The outer walls, measuring about 100 metres square, were erected in two days while the workers were under fire from Micmac Indians loyal to the French.
New Brunswick followed a month later, in February 1848; the Province of Canada (a merger of Upper and Lower Canada formed in 1840) in March; Prince Edward Island in 1851; and Newfoundland in 1855.
A proclamation dated 7 October 1763 and signed by King George III, annexed St. John's and Cape Breton Islands to Nova Scotia.  In the case of the former, now known as Prince Edward Island, the action had little significance, for within six years the authorities in England had reconsitiuted it as a distinct province.

For further consistency and avoidance of confusion, dating has also been normalized to eliminate Head's use of consecutive years divided by an oblique (or forward slash) to indicate changes in calendar years, as was done for certain Julian dates.
Thus a date of 11 mo. 1 1739/40 has been normalized as 11/1/39, and a date of 1 mo. 11 1739/40 has been normalized as 1/11/40.
