History

During the past, the place was commonly called “Punong” or fish pens located along the coastal area wherein fishing was the residents’ primary livelihood. The natives lived peacefully as they had enough foods from marine products. However, an epidemic called Cholera infseted among them. Unfortunately, many of them, young and old died.

Consequently, cholera spread the area, it reached to a very religious family. The father vehemently prayed for the survival of his wife who at that time was pregnant. While in the morning, a day after his ceremonial prayer, he was amazed when he discovered that his wife was already cured. The residents then believed that the epidemic had ceased by the power of prayer. In order to express their gratitude, they decided to have a patron saint. And, they have chosen Señor San Roque, the Patron Saint of those suffering from diseases. Similarly, in order not to remember their place as cholera infested, they decided to change “Punong” and adopted the name Montpiller, the hometown and the birthplace of Señor San Roque.

There was even an agreement that those who forgot to remember the new name of their place as Montpiller instead of Punong, one must pay one centavo as punishment and the proceeds were used as fund for their road construction.
