Romsey Abbey (interior)
Thomas Warren’s Tombstone
Thomas Warren died on the 27th January 1693, but shown on his tombstone
is the date 1693/94. This is due to the change of calendar dates,
changing from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar,
which took place in Europe between the 16th and 18th centuries and in England in 1752.
This is not the only tomb in Romsey Abbey to show this same situation.
A full explanation can be found in the book,
Romsey Abbey through the centuries by Judy Walker.
