Spanish minister, deputy, judge, senator and economist. Son of José Vadillo, who was deployed in America for fifteen years, and Ana María Hernandez. He studied Theology and Law in Orihuela and Sevilla. He was a congressman for Jaen in the Cortes of Cádiz, acting minister of State, as well as a member of the Cádiz Censorship Junta in 1811. His closest friends were Quintana, Argüelles, Torreno and Álvarez Guerra.

He married to Concepción de Imaz with whom he had six children, but unfortunately only a girl survived into adulthood, her name was María Joaquina.

During the Trienio Liberal (Liberal Triennium) he was the first constitutional mayor of Cádiz and deputy of the Cortes. After the victory of the Hundred Thousand Sons of Saint Louis, he went to Gibraltar where he exiled himself. After the French Revolution of 1830, the new government appointed him Minister of the Supreme Court of Justice, but he rejected this distinction for health reasons. A month later, he received the Grand Cross of the Royal Order of Carlos III. Even when he was 80 years old, he continued to be an icon of progressivism. When he died, his great fortune was given to the Provincial Library of Cádiz, as well as most of his books.
