    The British Cemetery in Elvas, Portugal, was opened to receive the body of Major General Daniel Hoghton, Sir Bernard's ancestor, who was killed at the battle of Albuera on 16 May 1811. Several further burials were made there, but only four have grave stones.

    The Friends of the British Cemetery, Elvas, were formed in 1996 to care for the cemetery. In 2000 memorial plaques were unveiled to the regiments who fought at Albuera and the sieges of Badajoz.

    Later the Chapel was restored at considerable expense and a small museum installed. It is now a 'Must Visit' point for any Battlefield tour in the area.

    In 2012, Elvas was finally recognised as a World Heritage and the Forte de Graça restored to its 18th Century glory.

    • Residence of The Portuguese Ambassador, 12 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PN



    His Excellency the Portuguese Ambassador has very kindly offered The Anglo-Portuguese Society twenty places at a reception and launch of Isabel Stilwell's new book on Queen Catherine of Braganza.  

    We are very grateful to Isabel Stilwell for her wish to include members of the Society in her talk. This is not a ticketed event but, if you so  wish, a donation in support of the Society would be a welcomed gesture.

    Due to the restricted number of places available please apply as soon as possible by email to:

    events@apsociety.co.uk

     

    There will be a further opportunity for members to hear Isabel Stilwell. This will take place in the State Rooms at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea where the magnificent portraits of Catherine of Braganza and her husband by Sir Peter Lely are on view.

    The Royal Hospital has close associations with Catherine of Braganza having been founded by her husband Charles II.  This possibility has been initiated by The Anglo-Portuguese Society and the The Royal Hospital are delighted to host Isabel in October for a joint event. Further details will be forwarded nearer the time.
