He was the prototype of Capitan Tiago in Rizal's Noli Me Tangere.

In 1896, the authorities arrested him for being a filibustero. He was imprisoned in Fort Santiago with brothers Antonio and Juan Luna, among others. His property was confiscated. Spanish authorities extorted money from him for his release. It is believed that his wife, Juana, gained his release after six months with a bag full of jewels given as bribe to the Spanish Officials.

He became the first president of Club Filipino.

He and Mariano Limjap were reouted to be the biggest financiers of the Revolution.
