Calendar of the Patent Rolls of the Chancery of Ireland
*NOTE REGARDING DATES ON THIS PAGE
Submitted to our Rootsweb Maillist by John Polk of Maryland USA regarding the dates of the patent rolls
Some care is needed in understanding the dates shown in these records. The
year is the regnal year not the calendar year unless shown otherwise, as in
the first item.
"17 Aug 14," for instance, was 17 Aug in the 14th year of James's reign,
which began 25 March 1603, so was calendar year 1616.
Ian MacInnes Dates Based on Regnal Years Calculator allows folks the ability to enter in the date in
question to calculate the exact date.
**Comment from Ian MacInnes' Page: Dates based on regnal years refer to the year of the current monarch's reign and usually have the format "year + monarch" (e.g. "4 Mary"). This page will take a date in regnal years and return an ordinary date. For instance, if you enter 6/1 1 Elizabeth I, you will get the year 1559 because June 1st in her first regnal year occurred in 1559.
