(1) We are surprised at the difficulty we have had in finding information on families with the name Marriott. We are using this page to pull together what we have on various Marriott branches (subject to the normal constraint on having found a connection to someone elsewhere in the database).
(2) Commoners reports that "This family tradtionally derives its patronymic from the town of Marriott in Normandy, whence three brothers Rudolphus, Augustin, and Gulielmus, are stated to have accompanied the Conqueror to England. From them several families have emanated and settled in Yorkshire, Leicestershire, and Kent."
