The two British invasions of the Río de la Plata (1806/7) brought consequences of various kinds: political, economic and demographic. We see that constituted to a break, a kind of hinge between two historical moments. They contributed to the transition from a social colonial regime, regulated by Spain, to another one politically independent, but, commercial-dependent from Great Britain and more demographically cosmopolitan. However, these three aspects are closely linked and, therefore, it seems necessary to work in a piece, in which they appear linked to one another, so as to show a complete social reality. The British invasions at the Rio de la Plata are axis from this work, and the census of the population of Buenos Aires during 1804, 1806 / 7 and 1810 are the data matrix. Our research will seek to answer the following questions:1) Why did the British finally come to Buenos Aires? 2) What activities did they conduct? 3) What were their links with the Buenos Aires society?
