Abstract:
During the reign of King William the Third, expenses incurred in the passage to America could be partially paid for every Church of England missionary or school-master who would undertake the journey. One such missionary was Reverend Thomas Burges, who made his way, via Virginia, to North Carolina in 1760. Burges settled in the Edgecomb Parish, Halifax County, North Carolina, where he taught school as well as worked in the ministry until his death in 1779. His eldest son from his first marriage, Henry John Burges, born in 1744, followed his father's example and became ordained in England in 1768. Leaving North Carolina for Virginia in 1770, Burges became a well-known supporter of the American Revolution while continuing to preach.
