Sy Scholfield quotes from "Elementos para a historia do municipio de Lisboa, Volume 11" by Eduardo Freire de Oliveira and A. Esteves Rodrigues da Silva (Typographia universal, 1901), p. 199: "Na segunda-feira, 5 de julho de 1717, pelas 12 horas da manhã, nasceu no palacio real da Ribeira da Cidade o infante D. Pedro que veiu a ser grão prior do Crato, e que, em virtude do seu consorcio com a rainha D. Maria 1..."

Translation: On Monday, 5 July 1717, at 12 midday, Prince Pedro was born in the Ribeira royal palace...

On 17 April 2017 Scholfield changed the rating from B to A, having forwarded news report from "Haerlemsche courant," 7 August 1717, p. 2: "Liffabon den 6 July. Gifteren op de middag is de Coningin van een Prins geluckig in 't Kraembed bevallen." (Lisbon, 6 July. Yesterday at midday the Queen was happily delivered of a Prince).
