Angel Sainz Trápaga was the son of Angel Sainz Trápaga. The latter was born in 1833 in Lavín de Lobos, Santander, Spain. The family business suffered from a prolonged drought and the Sainz Trápaga brothers went to the Americas in search of a better life. Manuel went to Cuba where he amassed a fortune and moved to Tampico, where he awaited the other three brothers, Víctor, Gregorio and Angel. Angel arrived in Tampico at the age of thirteen, worked alongside his brothers in various businesses and then moved into making high interest loans to other businessmen and was the major lender until the formation of the Banco de Tamaulipas. Angel married in 1870 and his wife’s dowry allowed him to increase his company’s capital. His son, Angel, was born in 1871.
