Born at Boxer's Creek 73 years ago, Mr. Burgess spent the whole of his life in the Goulburn district and watched Goulburn grow from a small township to the thriving city that it is today.
    He was probably the oldest brick maker in the southern district and learned the trade when quite young.
    Until about eight years ago, he owned and operated the brickyard on the Sydney road which was known by the name of "Burgess’s”. In 1920 his son, Mr Sam Burgess, jun., took over the control of this brickyard and has carried it on ever since.
    Beside his interests in the brickyard, Mr Burgess also supplied sand and grave to the Goulburn builders and engaged in general carrying work. He often recounted interesting stories of Goulburn's early days and recollected the time when the lock-up and police station were on the site of the present Post Office. He could also remember the existence of a toll bar on the road to Sydney at the point where the road to Towrang turns off.
    Mr Burgess carted the first bricks used in the construction of St Patrick's College.
    He was a well known figure in Goulburn and had a large circle of friends.
    His wife is still living, and he is survived also by one son, Mr Samuel Burgess, junior, one daughter, Mrs C Belgrove both of Goulburn and eight grandchildren.
    The funeral on Tuesday was largely attended and was very representative.
    The Interment took place in the Church of England portion of the general cemetery, Rev. Clive Stratham conduction the service at the graveside."
