Goa was declared Estado Da India, a capital of Mozambique, Macau, Daman, Diu, Dadra, Nagar Haveli and Vasai. There after in the 18th Century the Portuguese in Goa saw a decline of their rule the British India was quick to take advantage of this and interfered in the Portuguese rule by expanding british rule in Goa for a period of sixteen years. Later the French, British and Portuguese entered into many disputes over Goan territory.
On 1 October 1801 a peace treaty was signed in which the British were asked to leave Goa. Meanwhile in 1804 the Portuguese gave an area Near Cabo fort to British which would be used as a Cemetery for burying the dead British Colonial Officers.
