She married William Cottman Waller about 1764. William was born October 14, 1743. William was the son of Richard Waller and Ann Cottman. William died 1774 at 30 years of age.

Esme Marshall died intestate and his children thus far identified have been through wills or documents of other family members, such as Mary Nairn's brother, John.

Patience Marshall and William Cottman Waller had the following child:
