Birt, Isaiah

Birt, Isaiah an English Baptist minister, was born at Coleford, Sept. 6, 1758, his father being a Baptist minister. Converted early in life, he decided to enter the ministry. He entered Bristol College in 1779, and had among his teachers Rev. Dr. C. Evans and Robert Hall. In 1784 he became co-pastor with the Rev. Philip Gibbs at Plymouth, and subsequently of a Church at what was afterwards known as Devdnport, this Church being a colony from the one of which he was the colleague pastor. Here he remained until the close of 1813, when he removed to Birmingham, where he was for twelve years pastor of the Church which hall had for its minister the saintly Samuel Pearce. Finally he removed to London, where he died, Nov. 1, 1837. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1838, p. 23, 24. (J. C. S.)
