Purity of the BVM: Oct 16

I've seen October 16 listed as the feast of the Purity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  If you have information about the history of the feast, please let me know.  Thanks.

In England all Sundays of October were dedicated to the Holy Virgin:

1st Holy Rosary

2nd Motherhood

3rd Purity

4th Patronage

It was celebrated definitely in the end of the 19th Century.

For the Universal Church there was no such celebration,
