William Birch (1755 – 1834), a miniature painter and engraver, was born at Warwick. He exhibited enamel portraits at the Royal Academy from 1781 to 1794, when he went to Philadelphia, where he died. As an engraver he is best known by his 'Délices de la Grande Bretagne,' consisting of thirty-six plates of ancient buildings in Norwich and elsewhere, published in 1791.
He was the father of Thomas Birch, American portrait and marine painter.
