Spanish soldier, politician, philosopher, captain of "Estado Mayor" (in English, "military staff"), brother of Andrés and Juan and great-grandfather of Antonio and Manuel Machado. He married Cipriana Durán Yáñez, sister of Agustín Yáñez.

His military career was short but meaningful. It developed between 1808 and 1814, the Peninsular War's dates. At the beginning of his career, he was captain of the first company of the batalion of Cazadores of Zafra, and he got promoted to official captain of the "Estado Mayor", but when Ferdinand VII reinstated the absolutism, he retired. After the Peninsular War, he settled in Badajoz and was appointed political chief of Salamanca, later of Cáceres and he then became a member of the "Tertulia Patriótica" (in English, "patriotic-social-gathering") of Palencia.

He believed in the idea of founding a seminar and a social-gathering group in each one of the provinces of Spain. He was exiled in France for two years during the Ominous Decade. Moralist philosopher, worried about the mankind's future, he published in 1985 "Unidad simbiótica y destino del hombre en la Tierra", dedicated to Queen Isabella II of Spain. It seems that in 1856 he suffered a heavy disease which caused his death later in 1863.
