Other NoteHe was the fourth child of Thomas Brattle of Boston and Elizabeth, daughter of Captain William Tyng. He was part of the Harvard class of 1680, and graduated M.A. He was ordained at Cambridge on 25 November 1696 as the successor of Nathaniel Gookin. He acted with independence throughout his work there, allowing his church to allow private examinations for admission to fellowship. Brattle tended to sick students during the smallpox outbreak of 1690/1 and eventually fell ill with it, and was given the name "Father of the College". He married Elizabeth Hayman (d. 28 July 1715) on 3 November 1697 at Boston. They had two children, Thomas, who died in early childhood, and William, b. 18 April 1706. He married again to Elizabeth Gerrish (b. 9 October 1673, d. 22 May 1747), leaving no children. This marriage likely happened between Brattle writing his will in 21 June 1716 and his death in February 1717, as no mention is made in the will of his second wife.
