BURGESS, THOMAS (1784?–1807), painter, a son of William Burgess (d. 1812) [q. v.], and grandson of Thomas Burgess (fl. 1786) [q. v.], made his first appearance at the Royal Academy in 1802, when he contributed 'Market Gardener's House at Walham Green.’ In 1803 he exhibited ‘Landscape and Flowers;’ in 1804, ‘Ruins of a Fire in Soho;’ and in 1805 and 1806, ‘Derbyshire and Devonshire Views.’ Of a delicate constitution, he was attacked with consumption, and died at his father’s house in Sloane Square, Chelsea, on Nov. 1807, aged 23, an artist of great promise.
