William Brouncker was the elder son of Sir William Brouncker, a man of high importance who was closely associated with the kings of England and had fought against the Scots in 1639. He served Charles I as one of his privy chamber and acted as vice-chamberlain to his son Charles, Prince of Wales. William Brouncker's mother was Winifred Leigh who came from Newenhan in Warwickshire. In a time in England when King and Parliament would fight the Civil War, the Brouncker family were staunch Royalist supporters. We know little of Brouncker's early life. We have given 1620 as his date of birth but this is a guess made by historians rather than coming from any specific evidence. His place of birth is also a guess. Whether he was born in Ireland or England is even a matter of debate with no firm evidence to support either hypothesis. About the first we know for certain of Brouncker is that he entered Oxford University when he was sixteen years old and there he studied mathematics, languages and medicine. It is doubtful whether Brouncker learned more than arithmetic at Oxford, for Wallis , giving the status of mathematics at this time, wrote:- ... mathematics, at that time with us, were scarce looked on as academical studies, but rather mechanical - as the business of traders, merchants, seamen, carpenters, surveyors of lands and the like.

Biography William, Viscount Brouncker, one of the founders of the Royal Society of London, born about 1620, and died on April 5, 1684, was among the most brilliant mathematicians of this time, and was in intimate relations with Wallis, Fermat, and other leading mathematicians. I mentioned above his curious reproduction of Brahmagupta's solution of a certain indeterminate equation. Brouncker proved that the area enclosed between the equilateral hyperbola xy = 1, the axis of x, and the ordinates x = 1 and x = 2, is equal either to
or to
He also worked out other similar expressions for different areas bounded by the hyperbola and straight lines. He wrote on the rectification of the parabola and of the cycloid. It is noticeable that he used infinite series to express quantities whose values he could not otherwise determine.
Continued fractions had been employed by Bombelli in 1572, and had been systematically used by Cataldi in his treatise on finding the square roots of numbers, published at Bologna in 1613. Their properties and theory were given by Huygens, 1703 and Euler, 1744.
