  2.   The confusion over marriage dates appears to be due to misinterpretation of the Julian calender. Until 1752 the English and their colonies observed the New Year on March 25. Dates reported as the seventh month, eg. were September, not July. Also, dates between Jan 1st and Mar 25th were of the prior year. If you see a date recorded during that period followed by a year notation like 1635/6 indicating old style/new style.
