Jonathan Couch (15 March 1789 – 13 April 1870) was a British naturalist, the only child of Richard and Philippa Couch, of a family long resident at Polperro, a small fishing village between Looe and Fowey, on the south coast of Cornwall. There is currently a restaurant in the village centre called Couch's. It is unknown, but seems likely, whether it is a reference to Jonathan Couch. A blue plaque on the wall of Warren cottage commemorates his birthplace.
