Well, if it was the same William Burgess, he didn't last long in Peterhead. He appears only in the 1906 Valuation Roll as tenant and occupier of a house at 20 Albion Street and a shop, bakehouse and store at 22 Albion Street. The proprietor in 1904, 1906 and 1907 was Barbara Cruickshank. So it looks as if William Burgess only rented the premises for about a year.

Also there is no record of his death in Scotland, unless his age is wildly out. So if he was George's son returned from Australia, he must have re-emigrated, and could have ended up anywhere.
