Death date in Family Bible. George Burgess Sr. was listed in Lovell's 1871 Directory - Old Barns.

    From Ross Burgess:

    Some notes about George Burgess: Family tradition says that George Burgess came to Nova Scotia ca 1812 as a deserting fifer from the British Army. A notice in the Halifax Journal tells of the death on 7 Sept 1833 of Jane, consort of George Burgess, miller at Stewiacke Mills, in 37th yr. A petition now located in PANS and dated Feb'y 18th, 1834 asks for gov't aid for a wind-powered mill near Fort Ellis to be operated by a George Burgess. When George's son Robert was naturalized in the US he stated that he had been born in Walton, NS, 19 June 1843. Does this mean that George was living there at that time? The earliest deed for George Burgess buying land in the Old Barns area is dated 1851, so possibly he lived in Hants County before moving to Colchester County. Alexander Geddes is dated the same day and from the same seller. The Burgess family operated a grist mill, a paint mill and a plaster mill, probably on the site of the old Nelson Mill mentioned in the deeds for land in the Milltown area. George Burgess has been described as an old Englishman, a strong Tory and very patriotic at election time. He almost fell off the platform during speeches at Old Barns. He was supposedly ready to "horsewhip" the members of the opposing party. He and all his family were staunch members of the Church of England.
