Earliest person in my records is Candelario Nazareno. But since I have no record he reached into the Claveria era, I will just retain that name for the time being, until I see when he actually died. His children appear to have been born around 1810-1840s, and most of them later received the Campugan surname. [The first records of the surname already spelled it as Campugan although the catálogo de apellidos had Campogan (p. 26, col. 5)].

Anyway, from records of the children, we can estimate Candelario to have been born around 1780s-1790s. Other families have recorded marriages already at around that time. This suggests there must have been very few of the family, or even that Candelario may have been the only one, further meaning that he had himself come from elsewhere, maybe Bohol because that period was when many Boholano individuals came over to Carcar. However, I have not come across any record saying he came from Bohol, or elsewhere for that matter.

In a timeline, there seems to have been only one other person whose children were born around the same period as Candelario’s, and thus could have been a sister of Candelario.  She was Dalmacia Aleonar in her burial in 1865 but since her children later bore the surname Aleonar, that meant Dalmacia was of another family and had another surname — and other records say it was Campugan.  That being so, all the Aleonars of Carcar descended from Dalmacia Campugan and, thus, a Campugan family tree would already contain the entire Aleonar family as well.  The only hitch is no record has yet been found that directly links Dalmacia to Candelario for us to be able to establish their exact relationship. And, like, Candelario Nazareno, Dalmacia is also not identified as being a native other than of Carcar.

[10-May-2011: The only direct mention of the both of them contained in a single record is in the baptism of Candelario Nazareno’s son Cathalino [sic] Francisco in 1815 where the madrina (an example of a woman sponsor for a boy, touched in a previous post) was Cathalina [sic] Dalmacia.]

  1. can anyone help me trace the generation of my late father’s family?


    I want to meet them pls…I’m his younger daughter…

    Ma. Rosario M. Campugan, Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte.


    BORN : APRIL 22, 1927

    DIED : APRIL 12, 1992

  3. I am trying to locate a sister that my mother Maxima Barazona Campugan told me that she had to leave in the Philippines in October of 1967 when she moved to the US. I know that my mother was born in Carcar, Cebu but I don’t know exactly where my sister was born. She may have been born in Balibago Angeles City which was where I was born in April 1966. I believe my mother told me that my sister’s name is Evangeline (I am not sure how it is spelled). She may have been born on or around Aug 23rd 1959.
    I would also like to make contact with my mother’s family if there are any. She never really talked much about her past but I would really like to try and get to know where she came from.

    My name is Donald Campugan

    • I just found out my mother Maxima’s parents names were Emilio Campugan and Constanica Barasona. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks you all!

  4. My matriarchal Grandfather is Godofredo Campugan from Carcar. His wife was Desamparados Vale of Tuburan Cebu. His one and only sister was the wife of Bandleader Lading Amigable of Cebu City. Might Godofredo Campugan be a branch of the Campugan family tree? Thank you.

    • the campugans of carcar are all related. i have not however finished this family although the source of all aleonars of carcar was a dalmacia campugan, too. but from other sources godofredo’s parents appear to be juancho and agapita camomot. do you think this is correct? i cannot yet trace the lineage of juancho but agapita is a sister of mons. teofilo camomot’s father, luis.

  5. Hi Vip! trying to trace my father’s (Enerio Gingco Campugan) relatives in Carcar. My grandfather is Emilio Campugan and grandmother is Leonisa Gingco-Campugan. I was told they were originally from Carcar but moved to Mindanao. They said my grandfather also has a sister named ‘Anita Campugan’ I think who moved to the US but they lost contact with her. I dont know if she got married though.

    • i’m sorry i haven’t reached up to emilio. would you know when he was born?

    • Hello Nelma, Do you think that your Emilio and mine could be the same or possibly related?
