He was an adopted son of Simon Perez de Bustillo and his wife, Juana de Zamora. A mestizo, he was a natural son of one of Simon's sisters or of Simon’s with an Indian woman. In 1642 he declared that he was related to Nicolas Ortiz, brother-in-law, on his father's side. He played a brief and tragic political role that ended in 1643. Along with his double uncle, Antonio Baca and his cousins, he was beheaded in 1643 for the assassination of New Mexico Governor Rosas.
