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 in War­wick­shire, Eng­land. 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.
