Name Meaning

English: status name from Middle English burge(i)s, burgis, borgeis ‘inhabitant of a borough’ (strictly one possessing full municipal rights), ‘freeman of a borough’. Burgesses generally had tenure of land or buildings from a landlord by burgage. In medieval England burgage involved the payment of a fixed money rent (as opposed to payment in kind); in Scotland it involved payment in service, guarding the town. The -eis ending is from Latin -ensis (modern English -ese as in Portuguese). Compare Burger .

Americanized form of French Bourgeois .

History: Thomas Burgess came from England to MA c. 1630 and eventually settled in Sandwich, MA.
