John Burgess

John Burgess (1798-1871) was born in the parish of Keith, the illegitimate son of William Burgess and Isabella Richardson. He married Elspet Young, daughter of William Young and Margaret Dallas, and had 9 children. After Elspet's death, he had a further 4 children by Isabella Ingram, who was Elspet's widowed stepmother. Unusually for the time, all 13 children survived to adulthood, married and had families. John was a crofter and also worked in the limeworks at Keith. He died at his home at Broadfield.
