A legendary tale tells on how “AGGUB” got its name. During the early times when the place was uninhabited, there were “AGUB”trees that thrived with other trees. They were strong and gigantic. When the first group of people came to the place, they found the trees still sturdy and stood mightily among other trees. The place then was identified with the “AGUB” trees. Not along afterwards the people named the place “AGGUB”.
In the early days of history, this particular place has been covered with tree species called Anahao. This palm tree was so beneficial to the inhabitants, as they utilized the the leaves in making a hand weaved coat called Ananga or Caggua to protect themselves from rain and even during sunny days while on their farm activities. During summer days, residents then learned the proper skill of weaving such coat wherein they utilized their idle time. They gather bunch of leaves and set down to make many “Kaggua” to sell in the places thus it became the secondary source of income of the inhabitants.While their population had grown, the other inhabitants met together and agreed to name this particular place as Anao which originated from the palm tree Anahao.The barangay celebrates its Patronal Fiesta/ Foundation Day every 30th of August.
During the World War 1, migrants from different parts of Cabagan search for a safe place to hide and to be as their permanent residence. After searching for so long, they found a hilly with thick and forested place. Months gradually passed, residents from this place while seeking for a place which can be develop as a farm land, found an area which dominated by a plant locally called “ Sili Amiling”. Residents from this place found out that the leaf of this plant is a perfect match for tinola. And the spicy pepper “Amiling” serves as appetizer for them. After several years, inhabitants from nearby barangays commonly knew this place as “Kasilliang” which means “Plenty of Sili”.Upon the concensus of the people of this barangay, they agreed that this place be named as Angancasillian. Every 15 of April, this barangay celebrates its annual feast.
During the war of Americans and the Japanese, there was once a man who saw the Japanese troops that carried boxes of bullets. When the Japanese troops walked with their bullets and riffles, the American troops saw them. The leader of the American soldier gave a signal to his troops that the enemies are coming.It was then that “BALASIG” came from the word “BALA” meaning bullet and “SIG” meaning signal. The ancestors of the place named their barangay Balasig which is a combination of the bullet and signal. After the place was created as a barangay, they had chosen Sr. San Roque as their Patron Saint, which was then believed to be the healer of diseases of animals in the place. They usually celebrated their fiesta every 28th of April as way of recognizing their patron saint.
