Marian was born in 1496, the same year as Mary Tudor sister to King Henry VIII. Her Father was a wealthy Irish merchant who helped finance Henry VII in his acquisition of the English throne. To repay the debt Henry wed her Father to a royal ward and gave them a small estate as a wedding gift. Marian's Mother died of childbed fever after giving birth to her brother, who did not survive. She inherited properties from her Mother, and her Father remarried.

Marian married at 18 to a minor courtier of Henry VIII, who was previously married and had children. She was widowed, without children of her own, in her late early 40s and was given a pension and a minor position in the households of Queen Jane and then Anne of Cleaves. She is currently residing in the household of the Lady Anne of Cleves.
