Because of the way it is defined, Easter Sunday moves around the calendar in an apparently erratic way. However, its method of computation is surprisingly simple.
Note that in 1752, the British Empire skipped 11 days in their calendar to bring it into line with the Gregorian calendar. Thus, earlier dates in the British calendar can not be calculated here.
