He was the IV Marqués de las Salinas. He was born in Manila (Philippines). He was a military and a government representative. He was born to Luis Pérez de Tagle and María Ignacia Blanco Bermúdez.

He was born into an illustrious family from Santander, which moved to the Philippine archipelago at the beginning of the 18th century. From a very young age he travelled to Spain, and entered the Army at the age of nineteen when he joined the Royal Spanish Infantry Guard Regiment as a cadet. He participated in the War of the Pyrenees and, in 1801, in the War of Portugal.

When the Peninsular War started, he was promoted to second lieutenant and, as part of the Valencian division, he marched to Aragon and Navarre, taking part in various armed events.

He was the Alternate Government Representative of the Philippines in the Cortes (parliament, 1810-1813), taking the oath of office on 24 September 1810. He did not belong to any commission, and did very little during the fifteen months he was a representative. In 1811, when the main representative took up his position, he returned to the Philippines.

He was discharged from the Army on 31 December 1813, and later inherited the Marquisate of Salinas. His descendants were later listed as great merchants of the former Philippine Shipping Company.
