History

There was a tribe leader in a certain place who possessed great power. When he got married, he named one of his daughter as “Cansilayan”. Cansilayan grew up to be the fairest among the ladies in their place.

In fact, during the Spanish era, when the Spaniards patrolling the area, one of them was attracted to Cansilayan when he saw her. He courted the lady and they got married. However, the soldier received an order to transfer him to other assignment.

The soldier, before he leave, he asked the father of Cansilayan to name their place after her, in memory of their happiest moment when they were together as a couple. On the other hand, the soldier was uncertain if he could come back while considering the nature of his job. As powerful tribe leader, the father, declared that the name of the place should be “Cansilayan”.
