Vicar of Twickenham. Officiated at the secret wedding of George, Prince of Wales to Mrs Fitzherbert. Buried at St Mary the Virgin, Twickenham. From Barryslemming: "The Old Rectory at St Mary Hoo {Kent} . . . has a special place in scandals involving the royalty. The rectors from 1788 to 1875 were a father and son, both named R. Burt. The senior of the two, the Rev. Robert Burt, performed the illegal marriage ceremony between George IV and Mrs Fitzherbert in 1785. A plaque commemorating this event remains hidden in the old church of St Mary."
