In Scotland, the legal start of the year had already been moved to 1 January (in 1600), but Scotland otherwise continued to use the Julian calendar until 1752. But the start of the Julian year was not always 1 January, and was altered at different times in different countries (see New Year's Day in the Julian calendar). This was 25 March in England, Wales and the Colonies until 1752.From 1155 to 1752, the civil or legal year in England began on 25 March (Lady Day) The corresponding date in the Gregorian calendar is 9 February 1649, the date by which his contemporaries in some parts of continental Europe would have recorded his execution. During the years between the first introduction of the Gregorian calendar in continental Europe and its introduction in Britain, contemporary usage in England started to change.
There is some evidence that the calendar change was not easily accepted. It is common in English language publications to use the familiar Old Style and/or New Style terms when discussing events and personalities in other countries, especially with reference to the Russian Empire and the very-early Russian Soviet.The consequence was that the basis for calculation of the date of Easter as decided in the fourth century had drifted from reality. In the case of Eastern Europe, for example, all of these assumptions would be incorrect.The Gregorian calendar reform also dealt with the accumulated difference between these figures, between the years 3 (1750 in the British Empire), by skipping 10 dates (11 in the case of the Ireland, Great Britain and her colonies) to restore the date of the vernal equinox to approximately March 21, the approximate date it occurred at the time of the First Council of Nicea in 325. Closely related is the custom of dual dating, where writers gave two consecutive years to reflect differences in the starting date of the year, or to include both the Julian and Gregorian dates.Beginning in 1582, the Gregorian calendar replaced the Julian in Roman Catholic countries.
