He is described in the Visitation of London 1568 as a citizen and Merchantaylor of London, the eldest son of Robert Brett of Lincolnshire, gent, and Elizabeth Bush, daughter of Edward Bush of Sison.
He married on 18 May 1555 at Allhallows, Bread Street, City of London. The register doesn't name his wife - Robarte Breyt and (blank) - but in the Visitation of London 1568 she is named as Elizabeth daughter of Reginald Highgate of Essex.
His will was dated 18 Mar 1585/6, and probated on 26 Apr 1586. In it he named his wife Elizabeth and his six children - John, William, Robert, Richard, Alexander and Catherine. This differs from the Visitation which shows Elizabeth rather than Alexander.
