Martyn Quayle was the son of George Douglas Quayle and Elaine Evelyn. He was educated at St Ninian's High School and Ballakermeen High School before joining the Civil Service. He then joined Isle of Man Farmers Ltd, rising to Company Secretary and Managing Director between 1986 and 2002.

In the 2001 general election he was elected MHK for Middle at his first attempt and he retained his seat at the 2006 general election. In December 2006, he was appointed Home Affairs Minister before being moved in 2008 to Tourism by Tony Brown. He was later moved to the Department of Social Care.
