In September 1808 Lord Minto Governor of Bengal, had ordered Admiral Drury to proceed to Macao and to ensure that the city could be properly defended against possible attacks by the French. However the Chinese declined, maintaining that they could defend their own coasts, and the Portuguese Governor resisted the interference. Andrade led a seafaring life from an early age and made several Voyages to India and China. He later became a director of the Bank of Portugal. Cordier III, 1900.
