Source Notes

Fowler's quotes Sibly, "source unknown." Modern Astrology May/1907 gives the same date as OS and the time as 6:00 PM LAT. The style change is not confirmed, as the British calendar changed to NS in September/1752. Taeger quotes the Niehenke databank for the same as "from biography," (not confirmed).
