"Well I never!"
In what part of the country is that.
Here Whitsunday is definitly on 28 May, even if it is on a Tuesday, and
Martinmas is on 11 November. I never heard the other two quarters mentioned.
Neither do they seem to have much connection with Lady day and Michaelmas
which are also "Quarterdays."
