Marriott was edu­cat­ed at Christ Church, Ox­ford. He was the se­cond of two who ob­tained hon­ors in the schools in 1802, the first year for which there was a pub­lic ex­am­in­a­tion for hon­ors at Ox­ford.

For about two years he tu­tored Lord George Scott, bro­ther of the fifth Duke of Buc­cleuch. Af­ter his student’s death, the Duke pre­sent­ed him to the rec­to­ry of Church Law­ford, War­wick­shire.

Marriott kept that post the rest of his life, though his wife’s health com­pelled him to live in De­von­shire, where he was suc­cess­ive­ly cur­ate of St. Law­rence and oth­er pa­rish­es in Ex­e­ter, and of Broad­clyst, near Ex­e­ter.
