    Wikipedia tells us that:

     

    “In 1524, Henry VIII received a "box of marmalade" from Mr Hull of Exeter. As it was in a box, this was probably marmelada, a solid quince paste from Portugal, still made and sold in southern Europe.

     

    Marmalade’s Portuguese origins can be detected in the remarks in letters to Lord Lisle from William Grett, 12 May 1534. "I have sent to your lordship a box of marmaladoo, and another unto my good lady your wife" and from Richard Lee, 14 December 1536: "He most heartily thanketh her Ladyship for her marmaladoo".  Marmalade was a favourite treat of Anne Boleyn and her ladies in waiting."
