Brief History

This is place in the San Jose Oya-oy Valley was known as Ambolong from the Visayas word manugbulong or healer who resided there. During the term of Julian Frantilla as Vice Mayor of the town, he promoted the welfare of the barrio. To show their gratitude to him, the residents later changed the name of their place from Ambolong to Frantilla.

Those who headed this place were Fernando Muyong, Graciano Forelo, Luciano Forelo, Juan Alog, Hugo Micmic, Salvador Muyong, Cayo Muyong and Gregorio Fineza. Before, during and after World War II, it was headed by Tranquilino Alog. Those who served after the war were Maximo Moloa (1950-1951) and (1960-1963) Pacifico Alog (1956-1957) and Domingo Muyong (1958-1959). The present barangay captain is Cornelio Faca.

During the Japanese occupation, Frantilla was the first barrio to be raided by the Japanese soldiers which resulted in the death of Policeman Maximo Montilla, his son Jesus and daughter Dolores who was raped before she was killed. The Montilla family are from the poblacion but they moved to that place. Other killed were Luan Moloa and Simeona Monton, both over 70 years old and residents of the place.
