Oa- surnames of Carcar
You may be surprised why I titled this the “Oa-“ surnames and then most of the names here start with ”W”. On the list below, the first column is the spelling of the surnames as found in Carcar at present, but the “W” surnames there on that column were once spelled starting with “Oa-” — all of them. I guess, except for those found in non-Spanish names that had made their way to Spain, there was no “w” in the Spanish alphabet. And then, those non-Spanish names with the “w”, Spain pronounced the “w” as “v”.
Mariano Oasaoas (as Mariano Francisco before Claveria) a pescador (fisherman) has a record as a cabeza de barangay in 1839 and by another in 1850 as residing in Daanglungsod. His daughter, Melchora, got married to Pedro Barredo, a mestizo Español native of Dumaguete.
