Whit Sunday was 13th May, meaning that the Monday was 14th May.

Easter Sunday was very early, 25th March

The age of Majority was 21 until 1/1/1970.  I believe that this was 
the case for quite some time prior to this date, (possibly from 1695 
when the voting age/minimum age to stand as an MP was fixed at 21+ or 

John Camp might be the best arbiter of this!
