Malagyan before becoming a barangay was formerly a sitio of Barangay Indag-an. It became a barrio during the first term of Mayor Mueda with Agustin Monteclaro as barrio teniente who serve until his death in 1971. He was then followed by Ricardo Morit who served for almost 11 years of tenure, since 1972-1983 and was later replaced by Pacifico Montaño who has served office from 1983 to 1986. The governance of the barangay was then transferred to Esteban Nicolasora who act as an OIC barangay captain from 1987 until he was elected as a barangay captain during a barangay election in 1989. He out garnered his fellow candidates by a vote of 111, which lengthen his service from 1989 to 1994. He was succeeded by Charlie Murillo as the Punong Barangay who has rendered his service from 1994 to the present. Under his term, Malagyan became well-known place because of the many developments and many successful brilliant people coming from this place.
For several years of existence this barangay has witnessed not just glorious years but also dark years. Like other barangays in Miag-ao, Malagyan was also attracted by Japanese soldiers during the Japanese occupation in 1942. Several residents were killed, those were Conrado Faizan, Ramon Faizan and Felix Faizan because they were suspected as guerilla fighters. Vicente Motagot, Francisco Nolezada, Agustin Nufable, virginia Nufable, Anastacio Nufable and Salvacion Nufable were all victims of Japanese soldiers' brutalities. Trinidad Fortaleza Nuevaespaña, a witness and a victim of the Japanese, even remembered how she was bayonetted causing severe wounds in her body. Fortunately she has surpassed that tragedy and continue to live in this barangay.
