LEGEND OF ALIGUAY:

ALIGUAY (1902) – During the Spanish regime, many farmers grazed their working animals in this barangay which has formerly called as Kasuades. In that area, a certain Ali owned a vast tract of land. During those days, the farmers competed with each other in grazing their herds of cattle in that area. When somebody was asked where to graze his or her animals, the ready answer was “adto ka Ali iluguay.” “Iluguay or ituguay” is a Visayan term which means to graze.

One day, there was a conflict between the farmers as to whoever should first graze in that area. The conflict resulted to the death of one farmer. From that time on, the place was called Aliguay, derived from the words “Ali” and “luguay.”
