English Regnal Years are the years in which the Kings and Queens of England reigned (from 1066 to present). These are often needed when reading deeds/wills which refer, for example, to the “twelfth year of George III”, but can also be important to researchers in respect to why an individual immigrated, sold or lost lands, etc., just one example being the effect on Marylanders when the Catholic King James II fled to France in late 1668 1688, and was succeeded by the Protestant William of Orange and wife Mary in early 1689 (See Combs &c. and the Maryland Revolution of 1689)

Also note that calculation of dates using English (including Colonial) regnal year records may be affected by England's extended use of the Julian Calendar. See also Albion College's on-line Regnal Year Calculator
