(aleonar – (tr.v.) (Amer.) to stir up, agitate (generally for fun or through enthusiasm).

Three Generations

Besides the Aleonars of Carcar, other Aleonars have communicated to me from Leyte and Cavite-Laguna. A cursory look at Mayurga records had the spelling Allonar for the family but the one I had contact with already spelt her name Aleonar. The oldest Aleonar she could trace (her grandfather) could not be found in my Carcar records. Meanwhile, the Cavite-Laguna Aleonars’ oldest person is estimated to have been born around 1880s-90s, yet he too does not appear in my Carcar records. But the door remains open, hope springs eternal, but future research would bear out whether these families sprang from Carcar or else the surname was distributed in those places, too, independent of Carcar.

I have, however, been informed that there are Aleonars in Hawaii, translocating there during the sacada recruitment years. I have a hunch a certain branch very closely related to my own (as in that of my grandfather’s older half-brother) is in Hawaii. I wish one of them will read this, or somebody will buzz them to this site and me.

The first person in my Aleonar tree was born in Bohol (town not mentioned). He had apparently died already before the Claveria decree and it was only his children who received the surname. In her Burial, his wife was listed as Dalmacia Aleonar but a record or two called her Dalmacia Campugan. A similar case happened for the Sasuman family of Sangat where the father was also deceased and it was the mother who was called Sasuman, making it also quite difficult to determine what the mother’s actual family itself could have been.

(6-Sep-2012) I found a record for what may be the only girl of the children of starting person Vidal Ygnacio. the record was for the burial in 24-jan-1829 of MARIA MAGDALENA. the record said she was a parvula (child), daughter of Francisco Bidal [sic] and Ma. Damacia [sic], of the barangay of don andres alexo.  If we place her in the second generation, i would put her as the 8th child, between Pedro Aleonar (d. 1864) and Martin Albarado (b. 1830).

In the 2010 Voters list for Carcar, there are 172 voters surnamed Aleonar, the 39th most numerous surname in the list.

I am a great-grandson of Pedro (II) Aleonar, whose signature appears below, and Paula Vergara Tigley. I hope they can grin–aleonado–at what I am doing.

  1. Ako po si Renato Sibulan Aleonar anak ni Sulfecio Aleonar. Ayon sa auntie ko, ang lolo ko Cerilo Aleonar ay taga CarCar Cebu. Siya ay Veteran Soldier,nagkita sila ng lola ko Hipolita del Rosario sa Lapuyan, Zamboaga del Sur. Nagkaroon cla ng 8 na anak c NATIVIDAD,SULFICIO(deceased),CONDRADO(deceased), BERNADETH, BONIFACIO,CONCHITA, ERLINDA,at dalawa pa dko alam ang pangalan at dko pa nkita. Sana matulungan mo ako kung ang Lolo ko ay galing ba talaga sa Car-Car Cebu? Sa kasalukuyan ako ay nakatira sa malabon City Manila.

    • @renato, I;m sorry that I still do not have a record for Cerilo. Maybe if you know his date of birth, and also date of birth of your father. Please include your mother’s full name (first, middle, maiden name) so I can include you in the family tree once I come across a record for Cerilo. Can somebody in your clan make a complete family tree from Cerilo and Hipolita down to you and the next generation?

      I have a confirmation record for a Cerila Jutijot Aleonar in 1918 (meaning her birth would be around 1903-1913). Maybe I got the sex wrong and it’s actually your grandfather Cerilo. But I’m very happy to meet a kamag-anak.

      • @renato, since your auntie was the daughter of Cerilo Aleonar, please ask her who was Cerilo’s father and mother (or just Cerilo’s middle name).

  2. i would like to know in what generation does Malcolm Aleonar belong?what city belong him?
