The year of foundation is not known, although it is documented already in 1884 with the name of Sailors. Surely it was the result of the influence of the missing Filà Marine of Columbus de Alcoy. Its original denomination is the one of Sailors, who conserved until 1960, reappearing in 1963 with the present name. The first documentary reference to the Sailors is the one of the book of Zapater of 1884, as it happens with other puppets but, unlike them, does not exist no data that it indicates that they appeared long before that date.
Therefore, it had to appear not many years before 1884 and after 1868, since nonfigure in the document of that year. In 1957 another more luxurious suit is adopted, than it comes to be an retort of the official suit of the Marina Española, adorned with the corresponding gallons of the admiral position. Being lieutenant of mayor of José García Galbis celebrations, in 1959, the suit of Admiral was prohibited, along with the one of the Americans. In 1963 it changed his old name of Sailors by the present one, and did the same with his clothing.
Marinos Corsarios marches past for the first time in 1963 thanks to the tenacity of a man: Joaquín Marruenda Amorós, whom he asks for to the city council in 1960 gave to them of the participation in the celebrations to cross a crisis when changing the denomination and to begin from zero. But the tenacity prevails, and Marinos Corsarios the third villenense puppet is in 1963, with 160 salient partners.
