Noel, Maximino

Maximino Jaen Noel

(29-May-1879 – 6-Jul-1969)

Son of Florencio Noel and Filomena Jaen;

Politician; with Troadio Galicano, Vicente Urgello and Primitivo Sato, the only Carcaranons to sit in the National Legislature;

Replaced his older brother Mariano as Presidente Municipal 1916 for two terms until 1922; became congressman 3d District of Cebu until 1966; led pro-Osmeña family in political uphill battle against the alliance of Cuenco and Vicente Rama (district) and Mariano Mercado in Carcar, disadvantaged by Rama’s owning a newspaper, Bag-ong Kusog; only the fusion of Osmeña and Cuenco forces provided a truce on anti-Noel propaganda but which was already somewhat ingrained in Carcar consciousness; on the other hand, as politics go, the other half of Carcar did not believe a single word.

Married to Lucila Florido Cuico with 4 children.

Noel brothers

Brothers Mateo, Vicente (mayor 1906-10), Maximino (mayor 1916-22), and Mariano Noel (mayor 1910-16, 1922-29)

  14. Hi there… just doing some research about many Cebuano clans and I happened to stumble on this page. I would like to know if Maximo Noel is, in any way, related to Don Peping Noel. From what i heard, Peping Noel is a Portuguese settler and that prior to being a Noel, Their family name was Haine (not sure about the spelling). Anyhoo, just curious. I would personally like to know myself as I am a descendant of his (He’s the father of my grandfather)… would like to hear from you soon. Thank you and God bless 🙂

    • pls tell me some more about don peping noel, where did he live? also, if they changed the name from haine to noel, why are you still a haine?

      • Thank you for responding!

        “Marciano Haine” is just a pseudonym. hahaha.

        by the way, I know very little of my greatgrandfather (even my grandfather knew so little) so I’m not really sure what his name is. All I know is he was called “Peping” and he’s from Carcar. I have a photograph of my lolo’s dad too, if it helps.

  15. Hello. I find this site interesting. I’m Alice. My siblings, Alma and Allan Noel are children of Vicente Noel, Jr. From what we have been told, our grandfather’s name is Vicente Noel, a spanish man from Carcar.

  16. Hello, im proud to be part of this clan, im Valentino Noel Tan JR III, son of Marylou Noel Tan, Grandson of Arsenio Noel, My brother is Loubert Noel Tan, Arsenio Robert Noel Tan and Lovella Mae Noel Tan.

  17. Hello everyone,
    I’m Jaydelyn Noel Viduya-Lee, 30 years old. I’m the granddaughter of Arsenio “Sineng” Matondo Noel, the son of Elena Matondo. I heard from my parent and even from my grandmother who is still alive that my grandpa’s families are originally from Carcar. My Lolo Sineng used to be a policeman when he was still alive. I’m really interested to meet my relatives.

    • who was arsenio’s father?

  18. Hi everyone, my name is Suzette Montesclaros Danlag, I have always known that my father was the illegitimate son of Vicente Noel from Carcar, I know very little about his side of the family. as it was not discussed out of respect to my father and grandmother Damiana Danlag of Compostela, Cebu.I am very curious to know and would love to see a picture of the grandfather I never knew. I would appreciate any information or pictures anyone could share with me. Thanks, God bless.
