Sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your post. Long story... Anyway, I have a Richard Marriott in S. Normanton, born (as far as I can determine) in 1801. However, my date could be wrong...? Anyway, South Normanton was FULL of Marriotts going WAY back, and most of them must be related, so I would say there's a good chance we have some relatives in common somewhere if we look hard enough. At any rate, I may be able to help you with either direct information, or help on where to look. Please put up another post here if you are still looking for help.
