MARRIOTT Family History

This English and French surname is adopted from the medieval female personal name, Mariot, a diminutive of Mary, itself coming from the Hebrew and probably meaning 'wished-for child'.

It was a time of great religious revival and biblical names became all the rage, usually in the process obliterating existing native names. In this case the suffix 'ot' attached to a forename indicated the diminutive or pet form, and a good example is that of Mariota Hoppesort, recorded in the 1195 Court Rolls of the county of Suffolk in England and that of John filius Mariot in the Hundred Rolls of Huntingdonshire in1273...
