See: "The Gregorian Calendar" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar
Britain and the British Empire (including the eastern part of what is now the United States) adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752, by which time it was necessary to correct by 11 days. Wednesday, 2 September 1752 was followed by Thursday, 14 September 1752.

What you have noticed is the Calendar Act of 1750 when the British converted from the Julian to the Gregorian Calendar.
