Person Male Born 1667 Died 27/2/1731
Sculptor. Born in the parish of St Martin-in-the-Fields. Much admired in his day, his work can be seen at St Paul's and at Westminster Abbey. In 1729, leaving a tavern at Christmas, he slipped and broke his leg. This was badly set and, after a long illness, he died. We understand that the Queen Anne statue in SW1 is a copy of that at St Pauls, and the one in Kingston, also by Bird, is a different statue.
