Revd Allatson Burgh (1769 - 1856)

Born: 1769 | Died: 1856 | Grave: CR 012 | Category: Church

Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry in the City; so unpopular that his parishioners petitioned Queen Victoria to have him removed – in vain. Lived at Burgh House from 1822 until his death. Burgh was a more successful protestor in 1829 when he joined Hampstead copyholders fighting the Lord of the Manor over the Heath. [His vault is in the Allatson room in the Crypt of the church – named after him.]
