Origins of Carcar families

Legend:

mS= mestizo Sangley (Chinese-descent)
mE= mestizo Español (Spanish-descent)

 

 

Of all the towns in Cebu, Carcar may have the most number of families coming from different places to settle here. While 26 kilometers further down the road Argao, with the biggest land area, and the largest population, would have been the most enticing for prospective migrants in terms of arable land and size of market, but its distance from the city may have worked against it. I know we are working up our imagination here but maybe the settlers’ stamina could take them up only to the next biggest town, Carcar. Or maybe the old clans of Argao were far more entrenched so that the social dynamics of the town were more rigid, making living in the town not as convivial for outsiders—especially to ambitious out-of-towners. Or Carcar’s chicharron was just so other-worldly no sense going farther…

Anyway, early parish records of Carcar afford us a peek at the origins of families, so we can sort these immigrant Carcar families according to origin. Church records usually identified individuals as natural y vecino de (native and resident of). You will meet a phrase like “naturales de San Nicolas, vecinos de este pueblo” to refer to, say, the parents of a bride or groom in a marriage, or of a child that was baptized.

Doing that, we find the two biggest groups to be from Bohol and Cebu City. The Boholanos arrived earlier, although we cannot tell if they arrived together a whole bunch of them, but we can determine a number of these families were in Carcar already around 1800. It is noteworthy, however, that their coming over to Carcar coincided somewhat with the period when the pursuit of the remaining Dagojoy rebels in Bohol was at its hottest. Meanwhile, the families from Cebu City probably started arriving in a stream around the 1830s, and there may also be significance to that, historians can always pull a rabbit from the hat.

Here are the groupings. I apologize to the many other families not finding their names on this list. In boldface are families that produced a chief executive (gobernadorcillo, presidente, etc., or mayor) of Carcar.

Bohol. Carcar church records of the Spanish period are frustrating for researchers and genealogists in that 9.9 times out of ten they name only Bohol as the origin. The church scribes could have been more specific and forgiving to future researchers if only they’d written down the particular towns and not just distrito or provincia de Bohol.

The Boholano families:

Aldemita, Aldeon, Aldevera, Aleguiojo, Alemios (originally Alemeus), Aleoguens, Aleonar, Alfafaras (Loon), Baracao, Barateria, Barbon (Dimiao), Barcelos (Dimiao), Bargeo, Bitor (Inabanga), Campanilla, Campoy, Camuñas (also Camonias), Camuta, Canasa, Crystal, Dagojoy, Dayagdal, Dayaona, Diapera (originally Dayapira), Emnace, Emnacen, Empleo, Enad, Escobido (Anda), Fano, Galicano, Genodefanon, Genteroy (Dimiao), Gucor, Langbid, Laorden, Pananganan, Pangadlo, Propios, Quijon, Quijoy, Ramos, Sasuman, Sato(t), Saucejo, Simporios, Sinajon, Tangaro, Tangarorang, Taning (Baclayon), Tenieblas, Umbay (Dawis), Wasay. Meanwhile, Donato Regis’s second (c. 1850) wife, Juana Falcon, was a mestiza Española from Tagbilaran.

Cebu City: Families from Cebu City are more complicated to sort out because of the additional racial classifications. (Boholanos have no such problems because except for the Regis wife, all of them were classified indios.) But for Cebu City, there are families which were consistently recorded as mestizo Sangley (and mostly from Parian). But some, even if identified as originally from Cebu City, did not have the mS classification mentioned in any record I encountered of the family. Thus, for the record, I do not yet have mS records for Aldave, Alegrado, Cacafranca, Flores, Montesclaros, Rallos (the Rallos below), Ramas, Rodis, Saducas, Sobrevilla, Tenchavez. Not that they were not mS, because since they were said to be from Cebu City and prior to 1900, they very probably were, only I just need to have a record to confirm it for me before I myself go around hailing everybody with the fact.

Also, we now know that prior to 1850, Parian was independent of the Ciudad. Other towns/parishes that were once independent of Cebu City were Mabolo, Pardo, Talamban, etc. San Nicolas, which Pardo branched from, will be treated separately:

D. Francisco Rallos, coadjutor of Argao, was buried in Carcar in 1871. His parentage is there up to his grandfather, Hilario, who was said to be natural of the Ciudad, but it also said indio. The Cebu City Rallos family was pretty prominent (a Cebu City mayor) and very probably were mestizo Sangley, or even mestizo Español. But why would this family of the priest say they were indios, presuming they were the respondents to this record? And the Carcar priest who signed over the record I assume would’ve known his fellow priests’ parentage, so few of them at such an early period. Unless, and this is for lovers of intrigue, there was a willful “downgrading” going on.

Anyway, the Cebu City families:

Alcorcon (mS), Alcudia (mS), Aldocente (mS), Alegrado, Alo (mS), Apura (Mabolo), Avila (mS, originally Jimena/Ximena), Barcenilla (mS), Base (mS), Cacafranca, Castro (mS), Cui (mS), Cuico (mS), del Mar (mS), Flores, Florido (mS), Fortich (mE, Manila), Gantuangco (mS), Garces (mS), Gemperoso, Gonzalez, Jaen (mS), Machacon (mS), Medalle (mS), Mercado (mS), Mercado (Manila), Montesclaros, Noel (mS), Nuñez (mS), Osmeña (mS), Poncardas (mS), Quijano (mS), Rallos, Ramas, Rayla (mS), Regis (mS), Rodis, Saducas, Sagolili (mS), Sarmiento (mS), Sobrevilla, Solon (mS), Tenchavez, Urgello (mS), Velez (mS), Veloso (mS), Villarosa (mS), Yap (mS);

San Nicolas: Abella, Abellana, Abellaneda, Abellanosa, Aguilar, Aldave, Atillo, Bacalso, Baclay, Bacon, Binoya, Borres, Caballero, Caballes, Cavan (originally Caban), dela Cerna, Enriquez, Fernandez, Gutierrez, Losada, Macasero (also Mabolo), Nacua, Nadela, Paculaba, Padin, Racho, Rama, Ramos, Verano (via Aloguinsan), Yburan;

Pardo, Talisay and Minglanilla: Abellaneda (Talisay), Alenton (Talisay), Alforque (Minglanilla), Bacus (Talisay), Baritua (Minglanilla), Cabañero (Minglanilla), Cabigas (Talisay), Canchiller (Talisay), Daan (Talisay), Delima (Talisay, with variant de Lima), Echavez (Talisay), Fernandez (Talisay), Gabiola (Talisay), Gabrillo (Pardo), Juario, Larrobis (Minglanilla), Manca (Talisay), Nacario (Talisay), Nadela (Pardo, Minglanilla, Talisay from San Nicolas), Paculaba (Talisay from San Nicolas), Pagusara (Talisay), Unabia (Minglanilla);

Mandaue, Opon, Cordova: Baring (Opon), Del Corro (mE, Cebu City), Languido (Opon), Lapinid (Opon), Pugoy (Cordova), Ramos, Satinitigan (Mandaue), Siacor (Mandaue), Tangkay (Opon, including the variants Tancay and Tangcay);

Northern Cebu: Lepiten (Bogo), Montecillo (Sogod), Robles (mE, Danao);

Southern Cebu: Alerre (Boljoon), Baquilir (Argao), Calomarde (Dalaguete), Carpintero (Sibonga), Davide (Argao), Dayondon (Boljoon), Dayonot (Boljoon), Jacosalem (Barili), Ortiz (Sibonga), Torres (Sibonga), Vasquez (Sibonga, Cebu City), Villanueva (Sibonga), Ynfantado (Dalaguete), Zozobrado (Dumanjug);

Negros, Iloilo: Torres (Negros), Molina (Iloilo);

Luzon: Lakandazon (Pandacan, Manila), San Diego (Bulacan via Cebu City), Tagimacruz (Cavite via San Nicolas), Valencia (Bulacan);

Spain: del Corro (Cebu City via Opon), Fortich (via Manila), Rodriguez (Cebu City via Sibonga), Silva.

China: Yap (via Parian), Yap, Jo Reynes, Lao-Cong (via Bohol), Uy.

The Baring families. Not the British banking family, who were themselves originally from Germany, like every other banking family was, and had the surnames even before the 1700s—not they, but our own here.

The Bareng family of Carcar had that surname spelt that way from the beginning of Claveria, with an “e”. Moreover, there is no mention of their having come from outside Carcar. But ever since a Baring family from Opon–with the “i”–came to Carcar around the 1880s, it seemed our native Barengs lost out on the brow-beating contest, or spelling bee or however it was they settled the matter back then, and everyone in Carcar now seems to be a Baring with an “i”. Colonial mentality?

The original Barengs in Carcar may have originally come from Opon? There is no mention of that and since several branches of the family were already in Carcar much earlier than the Claveria decree, so we do not know how they would have been able to remember that their ancestor had come from Opon even just three generations before, and so decided to revise the spelling of their name accordingly.

But history then was folklore* and families may have handed down those origin stories around bonfires for generations–we can allow for that. Handed down those origin stories so solemnly that some of these stories even go all the way back to when their starting person emerged from a bamboo stalk. [Sorry, we should be more deferential than this, sorry.] Incidentally, the catálogo de apellidos (the list of surnames which accompanied Clavería’s decree and where almost all the surnames in the country were taken from), has both Bareng and Baring.

Native Carcar families? While we can group all other families to have been in Carcar earlier than the above groups and call them the “native” families, yet it is possible that they also had originally come from either Bohol, Cebu City, San Nicolas, etc.—only they arrived in Carcar even much much earlier. Much much earlier even than the earliest available records, and precluding our ever knowing.

So, for lack of my records to classify them, these families would be:

Alcontin, Alcordo, Alcorisa, Alcos, Alcoseba, Alcover, Alcoy, Alcuetas, Alcuezar, Aldaya, Aledo, Alega, Alegado, Alejado, Alesna, Alfafara, Alison (originally Aleson), Alvarado (originally Albarado and Albarada), Baran, Barangan, Barbadillo, Barcelo, Barcenas, Bardenas (and Bardinas), Bareng, Bargamento, Bargayo, Camomot, Campaña, Campugan, Canarias, Canaya, Canencia, Cuison, Dayagro, Dayanan (including the variant Dainan), Deitec (originally Daytec), Dayondon, Gempesao, Heludo, Lañas, Lapinid, Mancao, Manguiran, Mangruban (originally Manguroban), Navarro, Panimdim, Paningsoro (originally Paningesoro), Paraz, Satira (and Satera), Varga (originally Barga), Villalta (originally Villaalta), Volante, Ybañez, etc., etc, etc.

__________

*Can anyone picture a history class in 1820: [trans.]“Pedro [the future Pedro Bareng of Carcar], who discovered the Philippines?” “Magellan, Sir.”? “And (whispering) who killed Magellan?” “My ancestor in Mactan–Lapu-Lapu, Sir.”

  1. wow , wow, wow!!!

  2. very nice info sir.
    I’ve been so curious about Carcar. And though I’ve been there countless of times, it’s rustic atmosphere ever still makes me wonder a lot about my parent’s home town.

    I’m wondering if you have the genealogies visually mapped out, (like a tree). I would like to take a peak if available. And maybe I can fill in some gaps as well.

  3. or where can I send you some info? email perhaps

  4. If a Boholano family mentioned above has the Carcaranon surname (surnames that start with Al-, Bar-, Cam-, Day-, Em-, Gen-, Tang- etc.) it probably means the family was already in Carcar when the Claveria decree was implemented. If they received the Carcar list surname, it can further mean they did not know what name their Bohol main family assumed, or the Bohol family hadn’t receive a surname yet at the time.

    The same thing with families in Carcar who originated from other places. Examples, Alcorcon, Alcudia, Aldave, Alegrado and Barcenilla, etc from Cebu City. (See Surnames)

  5. Add to the Bohol families: Alemios, Camuñas, Dayaona, Simporios;
    Cebu City: Apura (Mabolo);
    San Nicolas: Aguilar, Bacalso;
    Talisay: Cabigas, Manca.

  6. sir….will you give more further info about the history or even just a background about juario family…tnx

    • @jing, I have a meager file on the juario family, and am not even sure of the origin but could be san nicolas or talisay. how about you instead furnish me an informal juario family tree so i can add to my carcar families files. thanks for dropping by…

  7. It’s to know where your origins are..

    • Langbid? Is Island your real name? Could it be?

  8. Sir, could you please tell me where my surname came from? Thanks..I am Perrelos by the way.

  9. From Perrelos by the way…Sorry ’bout that…

  10. Sir, my grandfather, my fathers’ father, that is, is Tomas Enad Langbid. He married my Lola, Teofila Tapere.Not sure about the middle. My mothers’ side,her father was from Leyte I was told, and her mother is Marzon, which i think came from Argao..I was also told that Tapere was originally Canoy?

  11. Dear Evan, my post above says Langbid came from Bohol. But I don’t know the meaning of the name. So is Enad from Bohol. Many older records spelled the name as Henad (Spanish do not pronounced “h”). I’m sure I saw many Tapere records, too, but I’m sorry I was not able to take down notes for the family. But my work is never ending.

    • Thanks a lot sir,,.Mean so much to me. One more favor sir, could you please, if it is not too much, rundown the facts for me regarding the early Langbids of Carcar? My knowledge about my bloodline is so limited, so limited that I don’t even know my Lolas’ maiden name….Thanks again Sir..Been a great help..

      • Evan, your lola’s maiden name–you said she was Teofila Tapere.

  12. hi vip,
    i don’t know if you remember me but i sure do remember you as one of the semilla brothers’ (rey and edwin) best friends. i’ve gone through the articles and links here with great amusement and delght. kudos to you for the effort and great research. i am one of the great admirers of your late father, judge peary, who incidentally is one of the best friends of my late father henry. continue the good work. wwe need people like you to keep us connected to our roots. thank you.

    • Omar, getting a note from a bar topnotcher is reward enough, i can go for another year of unpaid work.

  13. I was confuse of your research regarding Original family of Cebu, Car car and Bohol cos one time when I visited in cemetery to remember my ancestral blood I saw in one musolino was dated back 1700 I cant remember who is she/he
    but I had a lot of relatives in Talisay City and also in Perelos for exam. the judge garces gaviola and Msgr. Ga viola and a certain Name Lolo Pito from Tali say.

    • Dear @jose mariano g. garces,
      What exactly were you confused with–maybe where exactly the Garces family came from? Where was this musolio you mentioned–Talisay? The Garces family in Carcar came from Cebu City (specifically Parian) and they were mestizo Sangley. Bishop Gorordo’s mother was a Garces also from Parian and their house is there. I have not examined the Garces family of Talisay at all but chances are the first Garces person in Talisay also originated from the Parian. But I’m with you–who really knows in 1600 whether the Chinese who fathered the ancestor of the Garces family was really living in Talisay and his descendants just moved to Parian because mestizo Sangleys were there?

  15. Someone expressed puzzlement that I classified a particular family as coming from Bohol when there is no trace of anybody there with that surname. In this particular case, as with other similarly situated Carcar families, the surname was received in Carcar already and even belong to the alphabetical groupings of Carcar. This also means that the main family back in Bohol got another name.

  16. Hi! My father is from Carcar (not sure if it is Tapal or Valencia). His name is Genaro Cabigas and I believe my grand father’s name is Filomino. Do we belong in this tree?

    • @LG, although chances are your line also belongs to the Talisay Cabigases who arrived in Carcar, I should not say for certain unless I see your family tree linked up to those individuals in my Cabigas file. I do not have Filomino but maybe if you know brothers of his, or his parents. For instance what middle name did Filomino use?

  17. GOOD DAY! THANK YOU VERY MUCH MODERATOR. by the way, my father, Joseph Lañas, died 2 days ago, and sadly, we cannot trace the relatives from Carcar, Cebu. Can anyone help me find anyone from Lañas family in Carcar? they have no idea that he already passed away. this is my #:
    09062186581
    email me: jocelyn_lanas@yahoo.com
    I am really desperate to inform his relatives… please help me.

    Ms. Jocelyn Lañas

  18. Good day,
    My father, Joseph Traya Lañas, born July 20 1966, died 2 days ago (Oct. 11, 2009) due to cardiac arrest. he died at the age 53. He lost contact with his family when he was still 18 years old because he joined the army then. The only thing I know about his background is that he had 14 siblings, his mother is still in Carcar, and that he entered University of San Carlos. We are really desperate to inform his family. I have no idea how i can contact them. I know nobdy from broadecasting, and i cannot travel to Carcar because my father will be buried this sunday, October 18, 8am at the Manila North Cemetery… Please contact me at 09062186581 and send me an email… My family is mourning because his death is really really unexpected. He doesn’t have heart problems, and he is actually an athletic cyclist. Nobody from his side knew about his present whereabouts, and nobody knew he died. The wake is presently in the barangay hall of Bgy. Mariblo, San Francisco Del Monte, Quezon City, the most proximal barangay near my mother, my sister and my brother reside. All kinds of help, information, and contact networking will be highly appreciated…
    God bless…

  19. Hi VIP,

    This is an awesome site. Do you happen to have any records of the origin of the Navasca family in Carcar? There is a heavy concentration of Navascas in Napo, Carcar, and it would be good to know the origin. About ten years ago, I did a quick search of the Navasca last name in ICQ and the search returned names from Russia, European countries, USA to Mexico. Thanks for your help.

    Jake

  20. I see that Ybanez is in bold, does that mean that at some point there was a Ybanez in Carcar that was a mayor or something? I thought that the Ybanez are from Bogo. By the way my Great Grand father’s last name was Lim and my Great Grand mother’s last name was Ybanez. They settled in Cebu City and all 4 of their children took the last name Ybanez instead of Lim. Can you please clarify the origin of the Ybanez’s of Cebu or Bogo as coming from Carcar.
    Thanks

    • Read the page Carcar mayors.

      The town best known for its Ybañez family is Bantayan, and may have spilled over to Bogo (or vice versa). Carcar Ybañez families are a mixture of native (no notation of other origin), Opon, Dalaguete, San Nicolas. I am mildly surprised therefore that there is no Ybañez strain in Carcar that came from Bantayan (or Bogo) except where if they did, they were not noted in the records for being so.

      • Ok, My dad just told me that his grandmother was from tabogon, cebu. I think Bogo is so close to Tabogon that maybe the Ybanez of Bogo is her relatives.

        • I have just traced my ancestors all the way up to my great great great grandfather Severo Ybanez(Severo Bracamonte) and Basilisa Saladaga of tabogon Cebu. I cannot make a connection of the Carcar Ybanez and the Tabogon Ybanez.

  21. hi! i really need your help. but first what does (t) mean here coz my surname is sato. Can somebody help me trace the family tree of sato in carcar cebu or does anybody have or know that certain family tree? Please, please i need your help and immediate response. Thank you!

    • i may be able to help you trace the sato family. but please give me your family tree from your oldest ancestor you know. please spell out the complete names and give dates of birth so we will know where you belong to that family tree. if you want email me it’s at the About page.

  22. Aloha from Hawaii. My grandfather Ricardo Quizon (Sp?) Tangaro came to Hawaii with his younger brother, we called Uncle Cencio (Sp?). This would have been around Late 1930s-40’s. I believe he may have been in his 20s at the time. Story says he left his wife and 6 (?) children behind in Cebu to vacation in Hawaii. He started a large family here, I am his second eldest grandson. My mother, who has the name Loisa, is said to be named after his mother or grandmother, who grieved at his no return. I am interested in the origin of our name and the connections with the variant pronunciations of Tangaro in the Pacific- Tagaloa, Taaroa, Kanaloa, and Tangaro, etc. Any assistance will answer to a void of not knowing the greatest influence of my life, that of my Grandfather Tangaro.

    Dr. Tangaro
    Hilo, Hawaii

    • if you can read other leads i wrote about the origin of our surnames. An alphabetical list of surnames was handed down to natives in carcar by the Spanish authorities and a group starts with tang- and of these, tangaro, tangian, tangcay are surnames for my next research. The ancestors of the first two seems to have come from next-door island bohol.

      carcar pronounces your surname like the spanish do–TANG-ga-ro (accented on the first syllable). do you congregate with other carcar-origin families in hawaii?

      • Aloha and thanks. I did a search on the topic on surnames and found a wikipedia page discussing the Spanish decree requiring surnames. Interesting that although the bulk of surnames were Spanish, a large number were not. According to this source, many of the names were culled from native language-Tanga being one of them. If this is so, the meaning given for this name is one that is familiar to oceanic mythology.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphabetical_Catalog_of_Surnames#External_links

        You note that the name in Cebu is pronounced Spanish- style TANG-ga-ro, the english speaking schools here pronounced it tang-Ga-ro, and my grandfather adamantly pronounced his name tang-ga-RO – replete with the head dip for emphasis. (I use to chuckle to myself every time he did this).

        We never learned the Visaya dialect, save for phrases and words. This kept us on the margins of knowing how we were connected to all of the people my grandfather hosted – and there were many! After my grandfather past away the gap got more distant.

        I look forward to your ongoing research, especially those related to surnames. And above all else, thank YOU for sharing your passion.

        Aloha again,

        TANG-ga-ro/tang-GA-ro/tang-ga-RO

  23. Hello again. Ok, you probably have this list of original Filipino names: http://www.bibingka.com/names/

    The closest on the list to Tangaro is spelled Tagarro- perhaps a variant spelling of Tangaro. In Oceania Tangaro is also spelled Tagaro.

    • re the native names, we would have to check (maybe not each one) if it is found in the catálogo de apellidos, the surnames list of the decree. tangaro is there on page 127, col. 5, found in the vicinity of other carcar surnames tanginan, tante, taning, etc. in searches i found tángaro as a surname and tangaró as a place, so probably the two pronunciations of the surname are acceptable.

      • He mahalo nui- much thanks! Tangarö as a place name is intriguing.

  24. very interesting to read about our origins and our ancestors..
    would you mind sir if am asking where Oñate came from also?

    • i did not come across (or may just have missed) oñate in the 1800s records. if they were just migrants to carcar, your family elders may know where the first ancestor in carcar came from. the surname oñate however is basque (oñati in native basque language euskera) and is even a town in guipúzcoa. natives of oñate are called oñacino/a or oñatiense.

  25. Hi i came from tangaro familie’s may i know what country they came from?

  26. hi,

    do you somebody in the name of darah dayondon of carcar cebu?
    pls tell her to email at simply_eazy@yahoo.com

    i’m his long lost friend…

    thank you

    • hi everyone,

      do you knowsomebody in the name of darah dayondon of carcar cebu?
      pls tell her to email at simply_eazy@yahoo.com

      i’m his long lost friend…

      thank you

  27. Hi Sir, I am very happy upon reading this page about ancestors but I am just wondering because my ancestors surnames wasn’t here these are Aredidon, Bracero, Montecillo ( is here) then Monsanto, can you give me some info about any of that surnames Sir..Thank you very much and God bless:)

  28. I just found this site and was wondering why my last name was changed from Caban to Cavan??? Thank you for all of your wonderful work, it was very informative.

    • the earlier records in carcar of the family all spelled the surname as caban. for me this tied in neatly with other surnames from san nicolas which also started with cab- (ex., cabanes, caballes, caballero, cabrera, etc.) all of which are in the catálogo de apellidos of the claveria decree. however, cavan is also in the catalogo. So we cannot say with certainty what the original spelling really was in san nicolas records unless the records can still be found there.

      when exactly and why the caban families of carcar all got changed to cavan we can now only speculate. it’s possible the the original spelling in san nicolas was really cavan and so the family and the church clerks in carcar did the correction in the subsequent records.

  29. Good day vip.
    Can you post the origins of Dayagdal family cause i don’t think that my ancestors was came from bohol. As my lolo said that his grand parents live there during the spanish era. They live in mountain brgy. But howcomes there’s no record of my relatives origins, thank you

    • i listed the family as having come from bohol based on a record for a second generation saying he was born in bohol. the family 1850s-60s was spread in cabancalan, cancabayo, say, montepase, i would be very happy for the project if you can show me some proof or record as to the origin of the family. what is missing in my dayagdal file are the individuals’ names before the claveria decree although i am convinced that based on their day- surname, they received the surname in carcar already.

  30. Hi Sir, I am right now migrating the handwritten version of the Sagolili geneanology to a software called “GrampsAIO64 version 3.4.5-1″ starting from the family of my great – great – grandfather Mr. Hilario Sagolili and Mrs. Eduvigis Cabicab who had 12 siblings, of which 1 of the sons, Mr. Santiago Sagolili, was the father of my grandmother Ms. Socorro Sagolili, who was married to Teodulfo Lañas, whose son Heathcliff Lañas Sr. is my father. I am interested to tap others who are doing the same electronic genealogy to share notes so as to share and co-broaden records both upstream and downstream. They can email me at lanasjr@gmail.com.
