He was a chieftain of Samar.

In 1649, he led a revolt that protested against the enlistment of Samarenos from Samar for the Cavite dockyards, where galleons and war vessels were built.

In 1650, the revolt was contained when the authorities employed locals to lead the Spanish soldiers to Sumuroy's hide-out in the mountains. Sumuroy was able to escape the attacking forces but was presented to the alcalde mayor.
