Born in May, Died in February of the Same Year
The photo below shows a tombstone from Salisbury Cathedral, which shows clearly that the new year didn't always start on the 1st of January. It tells about a boy who was born on the 13th of May 1683 and died on the 19th of February in the same year! In 1683, in England, new year's day was the 25th of March.
