I just came across your post on genealogy.com concerning the Marriott family. I am a Marriott and have started doing a little research on my family tree. I have hit a bit of a stumbling block researching the Marriott's and have gotten as far back to Richard Marriott in South Normanton, Derbyshire, England. He was my great, great, great grandfather and was born there in 1811. Do you happen to have any more info on the Marriott's in this town?
