Municipality of San Miguel
San Miguel was once a barangay of Talibon. Formerly this was barrio Cambangay Sur, a part of the town of Trinidad.
Cambangay, its former name originated from the word ‘bangay’ a kind of weed that thrived in the locality. A farmer was weeding at the time when Spanish soldiers came and asked for the name of the place. Not understanding what they said and thinking that they were asking for the name of the weed he answered ‘bangay’. Happy to know, the soldiers exclaimed ‘COME BANGAY’. At that time they started calling the place Cambangay.
Cambangay Sur was a rich hunting ground where people migrates from different places of Bohol. When the late President Carlos P. Garcia signed Executive Order No. 107 creating barrio Cambangay Sur into a municipality its name was changed to San Miguel.
