Marshall Tractors Ltd was the company set up following the purchased by Nickerson group of the tractor operations of Leyland in 1981. The Leyland range was rebranded as Marshall and relaunched with a new colour scheme. The company was sold to McConnell Tractors in 1985, and later resold. Theakstones buys and then sell out to Bentall-Simplex, who then badges various makes of tractors as Marshall.

A former dealer John Charnley and Sons of Brindle, near Chorley, Lancashire buys up stock of parts then buys the remaining stock and the design rights from Bentall-Simplex (but not the brand name) and build some as JWD Field Master to order. (The Marshall name belonging to Theakstones who kept the parts business).
