From FamilySearch Wiki

The Royal Marines, the infantry land fighting element of the Royal Navy, were formed in 1755. However, the corps can trace its origins back as far as 28 October 1664 when at the grounds of the Honourable Artillery Company "the Duke of York and Albany's maritime regiment of foot" was first formed.[1]
