Hello Halina I'm very interested in the family tree as well. I don't have much so far. I can tell you that Samuel James Marriott was the second child and first son of Samuel James Marriott and Mary Jane Curnow. He was born January 9 1886 at Woodside SA 367/175. He married Muriel Maud Filsell ( Parents Owen Francis Filsell and Sarah Catherine Wellsby on January 5 1909 at Holy Trinity Church, Adelaide 239/666. Muriel was born January 13 1887, Thebarton SA 389/176. They had at least 1 child - Howard Francis Marriott born 1912. He married Thelma Christine Klopp June 1 1935 at St Bede's church, Semaphore 357/196.
The father of Samuel James - also Samuel James ( totally confusing) born 1854 ( where?) died at Williamstown August 16 1989 age 34 254/134. He married Mary Jane Curnow October 8 1883 at the residence of S. Marsh, Littlehampton SA 137/55. The document I have suggests that his father was also Samuel James!!
There is reference to a Biographical Index of South Australia published by the South Australian Genealogy & Heraldry Society pages 1020/1021 Listing the family of Oliver Marriott and his wife Sarah nee Hales arriving in SA from Tilbrook Bedfordshire Settling in Balaclava or surrounds. Oliver was born in 1824 and lists his father as Samuel Marriott! The speculation is as to whether Samuel James Marriott born 1854 was Oliver's brother although that is a 30 year age difference regards Peter
