Excerpt:

 

What purports to be a Census of British subjects in Lisbon, and evidently made at the request of the great Marquis of Pombal himself , is to be seen in a five page document included with many others in a collection of “Pombaline” papers kept in the Biblioteca Nacional in Lisbon. Here, spread out before us in a scribe's fine though slowly fading handwriting, is the most complete picture yet seen of an entire British community existing in Lisbon shortly after 1755.

First published in the British Historical Association Annual Report of 1946
