Other NoteB.A. (1673/4) and M.A. (1677) from St Catharine's College, Cambridge. Incorporated at Oxford in 1677. Rector of Betteshanger, Kent from 1680 until his death in 1702-3. Also curate of Sutton-by-Dover for the same span. Uncle of Thomas Brett, who preached his funeral sermon on 21 April 1703. The biographical sources differ on the date of his death: ODNB places it in 1703 (which corresponds to the date of the funeral sermon), but AO (Foster) and ACAD (Venn) place it in December 1702.
