This question already has an answer here:
Reading "Great Expectations", I noticed that numbers (I don't remember if this refers to all numbers, but I'm sure it was used when age was concerned) were given in the German way, namely, for instance:
one-and-twenty for twentyone
I'm asking why and when did the two languages split in this sense, that is, when did English start to tell numbers in the reversed order with respect to German.
Google N-grams does not shed any light on the topic.
