In Response To: Re: Taubman Family ()

It was Mar 25 = 9 months before Christmas (guess why 9 months!) - one of quarterdays (also explains why DECember was originally 10th month as implied by name) - the change of the tax year date is that otherwise people would have paid rent etc for 11 missing days! (there was a riot in London)
