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 the death of his student, 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.
