Birdsboro was named after its founder, William Bird, who took warrants for land on Haycreek Road and, later, Six Penny Creek as early as 1737. On the banks of Haycreek, he established a forge in about 1740, which was followed by other forges along the creek, as well as a sawmill and a gristmill. Between 1737 and 1751, he took up warrants for about 1600 acres of land. He died in 1761. Marcus Bird, a son, succeeded his father.
