Consolacion, Cebu

churchlacion.jpg

The town of Consolacion was first founded in the year 1871 with a population of 14,248 under the leadership of Juan Villamor. Before this, it was only a barrio of the Municipality of Mandaue. Its people had to go to Mandaue to pay their taxes. They were required to tender free labor to build the church of Mandaue every Sunday as well as other barangays. In view all of this, Juan Villamor, their leader, petition the Spanish Governor of Cebu to convert the barrio into a town or "Pueblo". Soon their request was granted, thus a new town was formed with its first captain, Juan Villamor. The name chosen for the new town was "Consolacion", in honor of the governor's daughter named Consolacion. This was done as an act of gratitude to the governor for granting their petition. The site plotted for the poblacion was Garing because most of the influencial names were from this place. But Augustin Palang and Cabeza Gregorio Besabella, who were both from Tugbongan, suggested that their place was more preferable as it is located near the seashore thus more accesible in terms of sea and land transportation. Still others wanted it to be Tayud. Finally, thru a compromise, it was decided to choose the very place where it is now located which lies 13 kilometers from the capital of the province.
