ARRILLAGA, Jose Joaquin, born in Aya, province of Guipuzcoa, Spain, in 1750; died at Soledad Mission, California, 24 July 1814. In his youth Arrillaga was a volunteer in Mexico, rose in the service, became captain in 1783, and in the same year took office as lieutenant governor of the two Californias. In 1792, on the death of Romeu, he was appointed governor, and after an interval passed once more as lieutenant governor, from 1794 to 1804, he received a permanent appointment as governor of Alta California, 26 March 1804, and retained the office until his death. Of all the Spanish governors of the newly settled land, he was the most uniformly successful in winning the approval of both civilians and the Catholic clergy.
