Charles Burness1

#371, b. 10 May 1795, d. 28 December 1847
     Charles Burness was baptized on 10 May 1795 in Wester Pitgarvie, Marykirk, Kincardineshire, Scotland.1 He was the son of Alexander Burness and Jean Ross.2,1 He married Catherine Anderson, daughter of William Anderson and Catherine Murray, on 7 September 1824 in Shottesbrook, Berkshire, England.3,4,5 He died on 28 December 1847 in Park Farm, Woburn, Bedfordshire, England, at age 52.6
     Obituary: Death of Mr. Burness. — The model farm of his Grace the Duke of Bedford, Woburn Park, sustained a loss last week in the much lamented death of Mr. Charles Burness, who has for many years superintended and carried out the great agricultural schemes connected with the estate with credit to himself and satisfaction to his employer, to whom his loss will be very great and we fear his Grace will have much difficulty, if ever he succeeds, in procuring his equal in a successor, his judgment as an agriculturist having been for many years highly appreciated, and on very frequent public occasions advantageously made use of as a judge at tlie annual agricultural meetings, where his great experience aud indefatigable exertions made him a valuable acquisition to the agricultural world. The constant visitors to Woburn Park Farm in search of information will in him lose a friend as he at all times felt great pleasure in imparting his store of well-gleaned knowledge to others. We are sorry to add, he has left a widow and eight children to lament his loss, to whom, we trust, his Grace will follow the liberal examples of his noble ancestors. As poor Burness was well known to be a just steward, he has left to his family a lasting legacy in a good name, but not riches.
