His titles were inherited by his nephew, Felipe Ososrio y de la Cueva, Duke consort of Fernán-Núñez.

His first name was José Miguel, later known as José María. He became Lieutenant General of the Royal Army and Gentleman-in-waiting of king Charles IV. He served in the Peninsular War and stood out in the defense of Cádiz. However, due to disagreements with the Military Junta, he was designated ambassador in London. He published there the "Manifiesto del Duque de Alburquerque acerca de su conducta con la Junta de Cádiz y arribo del exército de su cargo a aquella plaza". He died in office.
