Double dates

The practice of double dating resulted from the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar.
The Julian calendar (named for Julius Caesar declared March 25 as the first of the year and a solar year to be 365 days and 6 hours long
In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII determined that the Julian calendar was of by 11 minutes and 14 seconds.
The new' Gregorian calendar resolved the discrepancy and declared January 1st as the first of the year.
Not all countries accepted this calendar at the same time. England and the American colonies didn't accept it until 1752.
Before that date, the government observed March 25 as the first of the year, but most of the population observed January 1 as the first of the year.
So many people wrote dates falling between January 1 and March 25 with both years
