Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Burgess (October 31, 1809 - April 23, 1866) was the first Episcopal bishop of Maine. Burgess was born in Providence, Rhode Island, the son of Thomas Burgess, a Rhode Island judge, and his wife, Mary (Mackie) Burgess. Burgess's older brother, Thomas Mackie Burgess, was mayor of Providence. His younger brother, Alexander Burgess, was also an Episcopal priest. He graduated from Brown University in 1826, with the highest honors. After college, Burgess spent some time abroad from 1831-34 in G ttingen, Bonn, and Berlin. Bishop Alexander Viets Griswold admitted Burgess to deacon's orders, in Providence, June 10, 1834. He was ordained priest shortly thereafter, on November 2, 1834. He then became rector of Christ Church in Hartford, Connecticut.
