The .410 is an American concoction, derived from the 44 Game Getter and 44 Extra Long cartridges. The first 410s were made in the early 1900s. There were 2" and 2-1/2" shells for the 410 originally, the 3" was added later.

The 36 gauge is a European shotgun gauge. Europeans had a whole plethora of "unusual" gauges, like 14, 24. and 36, many of them proprietary for famous or popular gun makers. Most of the oddballs faded away, much like the 16 gauge has here stateside.
