The 44th Regiment of Foot, was one of seven additional regiments of infantry ordered to be formed in 1740 to augment the Regular Army during the War of the Austrian Succession. This new unit then ranked as the 55th was raised by Col. James Long, of the 1st Foot Guards (Grenadier Guards). After the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle the 43rd Regiment (American Provincial Corps) was disbanded and the ten Marine Regiments (44th to 53rd) ceased to be counted with those of the Line. The 55th were then re-numbered the 44th.
