Surgeon, merchant and shipowner. Birch arrived in Hobart Town in May 1808 as a medical officer abord the whaler Dubuc.

A land and building speculator, he erected the stone wall around the Hobart goal, and, in 1816, built for himself the colony's finest brick house, known as Macquarie House, which featured battlements and two cannon. He received a grant of land at Richmond, and also acquired land at Hollow Tree, Jericho, Cambridge and Lovely Banks. In 1818, Birch served as a member of the Lieutenant-Governor's Court. Birch's Bay, near Woodbridge, south of Hobart is named after him, as is Birch's Inlet at Macquarie Harbour. Birch died suddenly on 1 december 1821 at the age of 47, leaving a complex will that was the subject of dispute until 1854. He had married, in 1809, Sarah, the daughter of George Guest, a Norfolk Island immigrant. They had four sons and two daughters. (Source: Stancombe, G. H., Australian Dictionary of Biography Online)
