BARANGAY CABALAUNAN


Brief History

Barangay Cabalaunan is 9 kilometers from Banbanan and 6 kilometers from the poblacion. It is separated by precipice from Cadoldolan. The place is almost hidden by heavy trees. These trees are covered with wild vines called Balagon. Because of this, early residents called their community Cabalagonan. Later, it was changed to Cabalaunan, the present official name of the place.

Two known Cabezas of the place were Pantaleon Pait and Remondo Mupada. The pre-war Tenientes were Aniceto Mupada, Bartolome Pait, Vicente Nantong, Tiburcio Nedia, Jose Nabua and Felix Fanergo. Magdalena Fare headed this place before, during and after World War II. He was succeeded by Donato Fariolan and sub-teniente Nicasio Mupada (1952-1955) and Demetrio Mupada (1956-1979).

During the Filipino-American War, American soldiers spent their night in the barangay on their way to Sibalom Antique. They gave the residents foods and received rice, eggs, mangos and bananas in return. During the Japanese occupation, Japanese soldiers rested in the barangay on their way to penetrate Miag-ao. They ransacked the place and slaughtered domestic animals.

Cabalaunan has a sitio called Anoy noted for cattle raising. This sitio has a wide plateau planted with rice, corn and bananas.

Barangay Cabalaunan has a patron saint, Sr. San Roque whose feast is celebrated in March or April.
