Carlos José Caldeira (1811-1882) graduated from the Royal Naval Academy before joining the civil service. In 1850 he travelled to Macao using the overland route from Cairo to Suez and on by boat via Ceylon, Penang, and Singapore. He spent a year in Macao in order to compile and edit the Official Gazetteer for the colony. Caldeira returned to Lisbon in the following year, where he published an extended 2vol. account of his travels (1851-52). Annibal Fernandes Thomaz (1849-1911) was a noted bibliophile and bibliographer.
