Spanish Empire.The British’s naval forces seized Manila on
October,1762,and the surrender of the Spanish
Philippines to Britain during the British occupation of the
Philippines,inspired uprisings in the north of
Cagayan and Ilocos Norte.

Ilocos with native officials, he voluteered to head
Ilocano forces against the
British,Spanish administrators instead transferred their power to the Bishop of Nueva
Segovia, who rejected
Silang’s offer.Silang’s group attacked the city and imprisoned its priests.He
began an association with the British who
appointed him governor of
Ilocos on their behalf and promised him military reinforcement. The British force never materialized.
