This is the oldest legible Brattle tomb I found at Wateringbury, and likewise the earliest (yet known) Robert Brattle who was a miller. The mill was later known as Brattle Mill (or Upper Mill) and continued to be used as a corn mill until about 1910 (see Wikipedia)

Note that the word "Thomas" in the final line is not clear and may not be the correct interpretation.
