ANGLO-TEXAN CONVENTION OF 1840. The Anglo-Texan Convention of November 14, 1840, resulted from a proffer of British mediation to secure Mexican recognition of the independence of the Republic of Texas. Texas and England attended the convention, but Mexico refused and countered the invitation with the expedition of Adrián Woll in September 1842.
