Excerpt:

 

The Portugal merchants - i.e. the English merchants trading to Portugal in the 17th century - did not benefit from any special rights in relation to this trade, as had the members of earlier chartered companies - the East India or the Levant Companies - but they had neverheless developed such a corporate sense that they would act together as a lobby as far as the 19th century. In fact, by 1707 the increase of exports to Portugal had reached the point in which this country had become "...the greatest Mart for Vent of our Woolen Manufactures, Corn, Fish, and other British Commodities... ", according to a trade committee of the House of Commons.
