Sy Scholfield forwarded news report from "Amsterdamse courant," 1 June 1677, p. 2: "Berlijn den 25 Mey. Gifteren avondt ten 5 uuren is onfe Ceurvorftinne van een jonge Prins verloft."
(Berlin, 25 May: Yesterday in the evening at 5 o'clock our Princess gave birth to a Prince).
The Amsterdamse courant is from the Netherlands which adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1583, so the dates are presumably from that calendar.
Scholfield quotes from The Present State of the Universe, Or an Account of I. The Rise, Birth ... of All the Present Chief Princes of the World (Randall Taylor, 1694), p. 25: "Charles, or Christian-Lewis, born at four of the clock in the Afternoon, May 14 or 17. 1677."
The Julian date of 14 May is 24 May in the Gregorian calendar. Two times are given, 4pm and 5pm, so 4:30pm is used.
