dual year use e.g. March 16, 1647/1648

This was caused by dual use of Gregorian calendar, which begins on Jan 1 and the Julian calendar, where the people observed Ascension Day March 25 as the beginning of the year. See http://libguides.ctstatelibrary.org/hg/colonialresearch/calendar

Hopefully this will help in determining which is the correct year per our current calendar.

Annunciation not Ascension!  :)

Well I am not a good speller.
It's not misspelled, it's a different thing.  Annunciation is about the "announcement" that Mary will bear Christ, hence March 25 which is nine months before Christmas.  Ascension is 40 days after Easter which is moon based and changes each year often by many weeks.
